OMG - the cheesecake is excellent

Just had salmon and spinach salad followed by the cheesecake with blackstrap drizzled on top. Best meal I've had in Cozumel this week.

We eat here once or twice every dive trip and almost always order the lobster bacon sandwich, caprese salad and baked brie. Their other menu items that we've tried over the years have all been delicious as well.

We had heard that LaChef is the new go-to restaurant in Cozumel. We only had time for lunch there and were delighted by the range of sandwiches available. The steak sandwich was delicious as well as their chicken sandwich. Next time in Cozumel, we'll be there for dinner and to try pizza! And the wait staff was very accommodating and... More

My wife and I stayed a week in Cozumel. During our stay we ate at numerous downtown restaurants. Of all the places we ate, Le Chef was our favorite. We even at there twice during our visit, despite usually not wanting to repeat stops. During our first visit I had the famous lobster-bacon sandwich, and it lived up to the... More

Le Chef has a very relaxed atmosphere, although there is indoor table area I prefer the outdoor table are, it just gives a sense of freedom. Being vegetarian I am a bit fussy about places to eat and Le Chef has never put a foot wrong in my experience.

First time to Le Chef, it's tucked in a back street, very quiet, cool, chic and friendly, we had a Caesar Chicken Pizza and a Salami Pizza, a beer and water. Quick service and nice music. We sat outside, there was one other group of people, it was 2.00 pm and it was a very hot day, but we were... More

Le Chef us a newer cute restaurant in Cozumel. We have eaten there for 2 years now. The lobster sandwich is amazing. My husband says there's nothing like this that compares to it. Since I don't really eat seafood I get the prosciutto sandwich with fresh mozzarella instead of the gouda (although the gouda is great too!). I recommend you... More
