Great spot for breakfast in Chetumal. Everything we had was fresh, lovingly prepared, and authentic. Good (real) coffee was a plus.

You won't find better service in Chetumal than at La Casita del Chef. This little restaurant is hugely popular with locals and even when it's a hive of activity the staff are still super attentive to each table, from settling you in to your table to opening the door for you when you leave. It's reasonably priced, nothing crazy cheap,... More

This little casita is a place where Mexicans like to eat. While we were here at 8.30 in the morning the place was packed. Good sign! I had a vegetarian omelette which was really good. They have quite healthy breakfast here which is not very common in Mexico. The waitresses are very friendly. Great service. Would definitely come back.

Really enjoyed our meals. This little restaurant serves gourmet Mexican food. My salad was superb and my friends' fish was also excellent with some great twists in the recipes. Close to downtown and 10 minute walk from the Capital Plaza hotel where we are staying. Bathrooms were immaculate. Place is a little lacking in atmosphere, but the food makes up... More
