We happened upon this little gem on the advice of our airbnb host. It was walking distance from the downtown area. The music was an 80's theme, very fun and upbeat. We started with a glass of wine and a beer. Wonderful Cab Sav!!! We weren't tremendously hungry so I ordered a spinach salad and Jim ordered the lobster and... More

Visiting Cozumel for the day we stopped in for a late lunch. Was almost empty, my wife ordered the baguette, I, the lasagna............ whilst we waited could not help but notice the austerity of place, just bare painted walls. The food was good, the lasagna, had it been twice the size I would not have left still hungry. My wife... More

Le chef is back away from the downtown craziness. It is delicious and unique. They recently moved next to the previous location and added a back patio. The lobster and bacon sandwich is the best. I have recently discovered the spinach salad with salmon. It is equally as delicious. The atmosphere and staff are wonderful. I would high recommend for... More

Very slow service, NO SMILING personel, no one taking care and asking if everything was fine. Too long to get the food. Asked a sandwich with NO onions and get it anyway. Told the waiter and he did not even apologize and left. Never again, ZERO costumer service.

Who would have ever thought of combining lobster and bacon? Unbelievably good, unbelievably rich and not-so-unbelievably we are going back for more another.......REAL SOON. And I'll bet you all of their menu items are excellent too. Can't wait to try them.

We almost walked right by this little hole in the wall. They had a great center patio with good ambience, music, plants, and twinkle lights, but they had indoor seating as well. We sat outdoor and loved watching the chefs! Their detail and meticulous focus when making the food was entertaining, however, once we received our meal...WOW! Our Antipasto plate... More

Another place that has been on and off my radar for years, tempted to go but always decided not to at the last minute. Wanted to mix it up and get a salad in the middle of the trip and went in for their famous Lobster bacon sammich and the spinach, salmon, goat cheese and pecan salad… both were amazing..... More

Excellent place to stop in for lunch and dinner. We had seafood shi Cabot for the apetizer. I had salmon w/goat cheese and nicole had bistro paella. They were both delicious. The waitress was super friendly. Thanks le chef for a great experience.
