My business is not showing up on Google Maps when searched by keywords

Hi there,  My restaurant page was working fine until a few weeks ago.  Then suddenly there was a substantial drop in page views and it disappeared off google maps.  Unless I actually search for the name in maps it won't show up whilst other businesses will show up when you look at the general area.  I used to be able to put in restaurants in the search bar in maps and it would come up if i searched that area.  I'm concerned as I've actually committed more time and budget to online search tools (adword campaigns, facebook marketing, google analytics work) and so it doesn't make any sense that it isn't optimised.  I interact with google reviews and regularly update photos.  I'm active in pushing our presence so it seems odd that it has suddenly disappeared.  Can someone please explain why and how to revert back to how it was a few weeks ago?
