Asked the taxi to take me to an authentic Mexican Restaurant, and he chose La Choza. So glad he did. He told me it was family owned, and it felt that way once we got there. The people were so friendly and warm, and the food was amazing. I had churrasco, my boyfriend had shrimp. Both were so good. You... More

Got off our Carnival Dream ship and wanted some good local food. Several of the locals recommended this place and it was worth the couple of blocks walk. Nice staff and decor. Had a fountain area that was pretty and outdoor in the back. The guacamole was great. When they bring you the chips and dip the dip is unique... More

Our taxi driver recommended La Choza as having authentic Mexican food, so we walked the few blocks east into the city (from shopping area near the Del Sol store) and had some delicious food. The pico de gallo and guacamole were fresh and flavorful, as were the beef fajitas and the spicy pollo negro dish. A delicious dining experience!

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
