We discovered Le Chef in 2011. Since then it has been a tradition to visit the restaurant our first night in Cozumel. They offer a number of delicious food choices. Some of our favorites - lasagna, capresse salad and baked brie. However our absolute favorite is the lobster bacon sandwich. In a weeks time every person in our group of... More

I was upset to hear that La Prima no longer existed. It was the place for lobster tail. Le Chef had incredible lobster sandwiches but didn't serve the lobster tail dinner. I asked and they obliged. It was absolutely, perfectly delicious. One must order it ahead if they are to do it. I told them it should definitely be on... More

This restaurant provides a welcoming and beautiful environment. The food is outstanding no matter what you choose. The lobster and bacon sandwich is out of this world. I hear from my friends the duck is also amazing.

Just a block from the old location but what a wonderful new spot. Big garden area in back of a lovely old house reconverted for this favorite restaurant. Try it. You'll like it.

Love their tuna sashimi, no doubt the best on the island. Pastrami pita is also excellent as is the lobster bacon on rye (when in season!). The new location has an excellent quiet patio that with a few months of growth on the vegetation will be an excellent setting for outdoor dining.

Wow!! Had an amazing lunch at Le Chef. My husband had the lobster and bacon sandwich and I had the salmon and spinach salad. I am not a big fish eater but could honestly eat that dish every day. It was our second time there and it was every bit as good as the first. Staff speak and menus are... More

I dinned at the chef many time before it changed of location few meters from the old location I liked the food it is very different from most restaurants on the island very light with a twist of nouvelle cuisine not greasy and some what healthy at a very reasonable price,

Lobster cheese and bacon sandwich is amazing. So glad we are on the island for an extended stay. I can't get more soon enough! We had a party of 7 and everything was delicious. We also tried the wahoo, tuna sashimi, a pasta dish, a salad, bacon wrapped shrimp, steak. Everyone was happy. My son loved the tiramisu.

Thank Michelle K
