Le Chef is a small sidewalk cafe, about a block away from Ave. Rafael Melgar, the main north/south route along the west side of Cozumel Island. Walking distance from the ferry terminal.

This place serves great fresh food in a laid back atmosphere . I recommend trying the lobster and bacon sandwich. It's great for graving a drink at night too.

So after reading a lot of the TA reviews, I wasn't sure what else would be worth trying at Le Chef. We went for dinner and the food and service were lovely. We started with calamari which was grilled and served with some pieces of charred peppers, pita triangles and some garlic/ oil sauce. It was very good and quite... More

We ate there twice during our stay and found Le Chef to be absolutely wonderful. The Bacon and Lobster sandwich is superb as were all the salads and desserts we had. Presentation is awesome and the staff are spot on with there service. We also had the fish of the day which was Mahi Mahi with a lobster mushroom sauce.... More

I read many reviews from others about the Lobster and Bacon Sandwich. Normally things just don't live up to the hype, but this does. My wife and I were going to split one so that we could sample other items, but it was just too good. By split, she got 3/4 and I got 1/4. We also go the Chicken... More

Le Chef has a great sandwich that has mozzarella cheese and lobster. It also is accompanied with a nice salad. The pasta primavera is very tasty. The ambiance isn't the greatest, but the food makes up for it. We've had trouble finding new, quality food restaurants in Cozumel and this is one!

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
