A pit-stop for weary sightseers since 1984, Maya's still captures the soul of St. Barths with its varied and adventurous menu. Never ones to be content with sameness, owners Maya and Randy are resolute in their approach, maintaining an almost constantly evolving menu with plenty of fish dishes to please the veteran crowd. Jimmy Buffett is said to be a regular – hardly surprising given his penchant for the laid-back Gustavian way of life and own commercial interests. Set beneath the hills beyond the yacht harbour, Maya's is relatively uninhibited compared to the many exclusive restaurants on St. Barts; its tranquility deliciously organic with only the soundtrack of nature on a permanent loop.
Maya's huge outdoor patio is an unpretentious space of blonde wooden tables and canvas-backed chairs, strategically positioned to offer the best views of St. Barths shimmering harbour. Although unintentional, this simplicity lends to an immersive dining experience; the freshness of fish and citrus dishes augmented by the salty tang of the sea air. Main courses almost always feature a choice of two fresh fish dishes (such as red snapper and Mahi-Mahi), flavourfully enhanced with a blend of fresh Asian spices and exotic fruits. If on the menu, the Filet de Boeuf comes particularly recommended; best enjoyed with a light fruity red from the excellent wine menu.
