Hi all, well we finally got back to AJUA Maya where we hosted our wedding here in Playa. AJUA MAYA has moved locations and we weren't sure what to expect, and despite it not being the same feel, we had a great night there, mostly in part to the wonderful staff, who are the same as we had the night of our wedding.

What a great night, great food, lots of laughs, and overall probably one of the best restaurants in Playa.

The staff are SO much fun, carrying drinks to the table on their heads, playing jokes on us... YES I said drinkS; more than one at a time. Don't try this at home folks!

They make your Caesar salad at your table and it was fantastic. Their specialty is "flambee", and they do an amazing job. Al had a flambeed medium rare steak in a corn-truffle brandy & red wine sauce. He said he almost didn't need to cut it, it was so tender. They completely understand how to cook steak.

I had grilled lobster tail which was fantastic. Ray & Pat both had grilled shrimp, all a big hit. They gave us a free round of drinks on the house, which was very thoughtful including the flambeed specialty coffees which I have posted a video of. Amazing show all around.

What a bunch of jokesters; extremely hospitable, and we enjoyed every moment of our anniversary dinner there.

Thanks Victor, Enrique, Tiger (as in Woods!), Pedro for such a fantastic night...

As Arnold Swarchneggar said, we'll be back! Hasta la vista!

Here's some photos to take a look at!

YUMMY for sure!!!!
They treat you right because not only are they good service people, but also because YOU know how to appreciate their service. You are generous, kind, respectful and witty. That is an AWESOME Epic Fun memory building meal.
