Eating Out: Casa Maya

Casa Maya is a local family run Latin American restaurant here in Saint Augustine. The Barrera's recently moved to a larger more open atmosphere, right across the street from their original location.

The vibrant colors that are just past their reception in the waiting area are delightful, it provides you with the feeling you are in another country. The feel is definitely "Ethnic & Eclectic" as their sign taunts.
I went with a few girls from work as one was leaving the company. Their Guacamole is made to order and served with blue chips, YUM! And there's a lot too. I had a veggie wrap (top left), there were 3 or 4 vegetarian options listed and I'm ready to go back and get this veggie wrap again. It was that good!
Their Quesadillas were of epic proportions, off the plate big. Another in the group ordered their soup of the day, a Corn Chowder that she thoroughly enjoyed.
There is outside balcony seating overlooking Hypolita Street. This is very close to the high foot traffic area of Saint George Street, making for a great spot for people watching with a breeze coming off the bayfront.
The inside was decorated in a very "cool" way too. All of the colored pillows, natural light and paintings makes for a nice atmosphere.
I am really impressed with their new location and updated menu. I hadn't been in almost 5 years, but I will definitely be going back to this new one very soon.
