About Us

Cheen Huaye: ( pronounced Chen-why-a ) Maya for 'only here'.

Cheen Huaye is the creation of executive chef Marco Velasquez and his wife, Magna Vieira. Marco is a native of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula and after working as a chef in some of South Florida's finest restaurants, he decided to cook what he loves.

Authentic Yucatecan dishes, from fresh ingredients. Made to order.

Cheen Huaye has received accolades such as Best Mexican Restaurant from the Miami New Times and continues to maintain outstanding reviews from all over. Our food is elevated Mexican different from what you usually encounter in a refined manner. Different enough to excite your palate, yet still be familiar enough to satisfy your desire for Mexican cuisine. 

Over the years we've expanded to comfortably accommodate our loyal regulars and newcomers alike. That's included one of the largest Tequila Bars in South Florida. Its not just about Margaritas. We stock the finiest and most popular tequilas available. If you are interested in expanding your taste and knowledge of tequia, Cheen Huaye's bartender's specialized knowledge can help you navigate through which ones will be to your liking and what to pair them with for your meal.

We take reservations and accommodate large parties. We also have outdoor seating which enables us to be pet friendly.
