The Maya Grill is found in Coronado Springs, a Spanish-tiled convention hotel in Walt Disney World. The setting makes you feel like you are strolling down a street in Mexico right after a jubilant festival.

I started my dinner with the Heart of Romaine Caesar Salad. It was a full heart of crisp Romaine lettuce with creamy dressing. It was hearty and delicious. There was just the right amount of dressing drizzled over the greens. Then, I had the Seafood Jalea for my entree. It is a medley of shrimp, white fish and calamari in a red sauce. I wasn’t really that impressed and couldn’t finish the whole thing. Honestly, I wished there was another helping of the Caesar Salad to replace the Seafood Jalea, but I made do.  For dessert, my cousin and I shared the Churro with Vanilla Ice Cream. It was light and creamy with a hint of sweetness from the warm bananas. It was delightful how they turned what has been known as  a carnival treat into an elegant confection. I also washed my meal down with a refreshing Caipirinha, which is like a mojito, but it doesn’t have any mint or club soda, so it is more refreshing.

Even though the entree wasn’t all I hoped it would be, the setting, the salad and the dessert were all very enchanting.
