every time we come to Cozumel we make time for Le chef. It never disappoints. Serves both conventional food and some more less conventional Cozumel influenced flavors. Free wifi as a bonus.

A lot of my friends go to Le Chef, I just don't, don't know why, parking, but now I have discovered there is a parking lot 1/2 block towards the ocean! Anyway, we met at LeChef and my friend said try the tortilla soup, it is really really good. It was not good, it was GREAT. I mean, rich and... More

Everything we had here was wonderful. My daughter and I had the lobster sandwich and it is as amazing as all the other reviews say it is. My husband and son had the catch of the day which was equally good. The lobster & mushroom sauce on it was excellent. The portions are very generous. Would definitely go here again.

4 of us had lunch at Le Chef and it was amazing. My brother had ate there once before and recommended the Lobster sandwich. "It was fantastic". The day we went, they had no natural gas at the restaurant and the owner went out of his way to make our meals. He even gave us a free "Cervasa" which we... More

All dishes are very well prepared but lobster sandwich is a must. There are delicious burgers and pasta. Very good tuna sashimi. Good wines. And delicious desserts as chocolate mousse. It is not located in the most touristic boulevard but Is not so far from the main avenue.

We had the lobster club and a shrimp pizza - both were wonderful. We'll be returning to Le Chef every time we're on the island!

The sidewalk seating in the evening was enjoyable, with several visits from owner to check on our satisfaction. Pasta primavera, ceasar salad, the special grilled angel shrimp were all delicious. All pasta dishes looked great. The establishment serves lunch too, but I prefer the night atmosphere.
