Based on the many good reviews here in TripAdvisor we decided to lunch at La Choza in San Miguel one afternoon. It's a few blocks off the beaten path, but well worth the walk. We ate there in the off season and so the restaurant was relatively empty. That said, the service was great. Due to the heat, we were... More

My friend and I made a special trip to downtown Cozumel just to eat at La Choza based onYelp reviews and were thrilled that we did. The house salsa is one-of-a-kind, the guacamole is superb, the chicken breast in mole sauce was tender and rich and had a nice, subtle kick, and the caramel flan was the best flan I... More

La Choza is a favorite of mine. As a crew-member aboard a ship, I've been there quite often. The food is excellent, the beer is cold, and the staff are friendly. The only downside is that like many establishments in Cozumel, it's an open-air environment, and when it's hot outside (even with fans going), you can still work up a... More

We had a great meal at this traditional Mexican restaurant in Cozumel. We had the chicken and steak fajitas and had complementary chicken noodle soup and lentil soup. Both these were delicious. The fajitas were very tasty and exceeded our expectations. It was honest Mexican food at a very reasonable price. We WILL visit this restaurant again when in Cozumel.

We have had the pleasure to dine at La Choza for over 20 years. We make a point of going there at least twice during our vacations in Cozumel. Their margaritas with freshly squeezed orange juice are exceptional and second to none anywhere. We also highly recommend their tortilla soup, garlic shrimp, fajitas and Veracruz topping. The staff is always... More

A little off the beaten path, but a wonderful dining experience. Great food, big portions, relaxing atmosphere with local flair. Oh yeah, they take credit cards too. They have really done an impressive job at decorating a non corner lot and giving it an open air atmosphere. We will be back next trip.

What a great little place- off the main strip, with wonderful service, amazing, authentic (non-tex-mex) food, incredible mango margaritas-- do it, you won't regret it-- and fast wi-fi- we went on the recommendation of the cruise ship's comedian and wound up running into more of the staff and crew there. Meals come with chips and salsa, soup, and generous portions.... More

A couple of blocks off of the main drag but worth the walk. Great Mexican food with good local seafood twists. Service was very good and the prices were very reasonable. No AC but had fans and comfortable in the eveining.

My family has been visiting La Choza for almost 20 years, and they never fail! The margaritas a great, the fajitas are excellent and the service is lovely. We do miss their old location (we heard it burned down!) They always have music, if you want something happy request "Maria Isabel"
