Modern - Gourmet Pizza in Traditional, Mexican setting

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... read 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

Calamari was delish!! Service very nice. My husband had the lobster sandwich, and I had a very nice Cesar salad. We will come back to try other wonderful items on the menu. Complimentary WFY.

Lobster Sandwich...hands down delish-must have. We ate here several times during our visit. The pastas are very good, portions are a good size, process are a little higher than other places but no-one has this Lobster Sandwich!!

LeChef has been around for nearly 10 years, under the aegis of Lalo Mora, the host, chef, and owner of this restaurant. International dishes are simple, tasty, fresh, and attractively priced. An evening dinner in its quaint ambiance and you will have forgotten you are merely one block away from the Caribbean cookie cutter tourist traps that litter the downtown... More

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.

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
