A must stop while in Cozumel. We had been told about this place and the bacon lobster sandwich. I was a little hesitant to get just a sandwich bc the menu looked so good. But it was sooo good!! Not your ordinary sandwich for sure!!

Our large group had dinner in the lovely courtyard. The antipasti was a great starter, and then most of us had the famous lobster sandwich. Prices were reasonable, excellent food, good wine list, great atmosphere.

We went here for dinner and it was very nice. Good ambiance, especially at the garden. We ordered the pizza salami and pasta cambozola. Both were very tasteful. Unfortunately they had no (more) tiramisu because we would have loved to try it. Overall great value for money.

This little hidden gem has excellent food! A must visit in Cozumel. Famous for their lobster sandwich. They have other excellent menu items. Even their Caesar salad was beautifully dressed and so fresh! Loved this place!

... of our "MUST EATS" on every trip going forward. It is perhaps the best sandwich I've ever had the pleasure of eating. It is soooo fantastic it is impossible to describe how great it is. It will leave you speachless. It is one of those items that once you've experienced it you'll never look at the menu again because... More

I really like the new location. Courtyard is pretty but I do miss sitting on the sidewalk. If you come here have the lobster and bacon sandwich. Prices are good and service is friendly.

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.
