“The Excellence of Cha Cha”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

I've had the pleasure of eating at Cha Cha's Kitchen four or five times. The meals are amazing. Even when I know the ingredients are not my favorites, I am blown away by the way they are blended into some awesome meal! The shrimp banh mi with toasted coconut is a clear favorite, as is the veggie burger, a curried blend of sweet potato, quinoa and garbanzos. The desserts are to die for.... one week's cake outshining the previous one.

Please note, there are 4-5 things on the menu, which changes each Monday. One dish is vegetarian but possibly not vegan. Due to the high volume and little space, specialty orders are just not possible. This venture started as take out only and then became a sit down restaurant with seating for 16 max. You are welcome to bring your own wine. No alcohol is served.

“Wonderful food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

Just had lunch at Cha Cha's for the first time. They offer a limited menu that changes each week and a couple of the specials were great, yea I ate two different specials , the first one was so good that I thought I'd try a different special, the second one was better than the first. Service was in the back yard of a really cute local home and it too was top notch. Will be back next week to try out other specials

“Best lunch place on the island!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

Cha Cha's Kitchen is a sweet, lovely, home-based business run by a mother/daughter team, who have built both a beautiful, esthetically appealing dining environment in their inner courtyard garden, and a scrumptious weekly menu utilizing fresh ingredients and many of their own homegrown herbs.
The luncheon cuisine is imaginative, absolutely delicious, and it's apparent that the owners put their heart into their menu and service! Plus...the prices are great!
I will go back to this hidden, enchanted garden the minute I hit the island again! A must see/experience dining delight!

“Most creative deliciously amazing food in Cozumel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

Finally! A newcomer in the business with a creatively talented chef! This started as a take-out business but word spread so rapidly that no one wanted to wait to get home to eat it. So now they have a limited seating area in their tropical little garden. I have lived on the island just over 18 years...and I have never heard such a buzz about a place for lunch. Every Monday, we all go online to check out the new menu. No two weeks alike...there is a featured sandwich or two, a salad, a soup and the most delectable desserts. The only downfall....you gotta get your order in early! In the two months they have been open, they usually sell out of items before 2:30 or 3pm. Their menu varies weekly, but the best thing is that they always have a vegetarian and many times a vegan option too. Since everything is made to order, they can usually omit an ingredient to satisfy even the most particular palate (like mine! Hehe) If you are heading to the beach for the afternoon or out on a boat, stop by and get some healthy food to go! But if you have time...there is nothing more relaxing than dining in their courtyard and getting away from the hustle and bustle of downtown when 6 cruise ships are in port. Two thumbs up from me!

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

If you are looking for very good food in a fabulous atmoshere try Chacha's Kitchen. You are in a neighborhood with a beautiful garden dining expeirence. The menu is limited and changes weekly. The main dishes are fabulous but try the desserts. If you don't have room bring it home for a treat later YOu won't be sorry!
