Soma is a great addition to Chelem and the area. The atmosphere is lovely and it is such a pretty place to eat. The food and service are great and all in all it is a fabulous place for a special dinner, a delicious lunch or a wonderful breakfast. The food at Soma is as much a treat for the eye as the belly, beautifully presented and prepared.

The food here is always excellent both visually and to taste. We have had breakfast, lunch and dinner and never had a bad meal. Our only complaint is that they have stopped breakfast for the moment, at least until the snowbirds come back to the coast.
Although it is not right on the beach it has a great ambiance and is spotlessly clean. You can even pay a small amount and get to use the pool to cool down.
On a Saturday they have music to dine by with Naomi and James - no blasting speakers.
They don't have a license as yet but you can BYOB for a small charge. Definitely a great addition to Chelem.

We were invited by friengs to discover this new restaurant. It is not on the beach, bur there is plenty of ambiance under the palapa roofs. Dont be put off by lack of wine or beer just yet . Bring along your insulated brew. Start with any three of the apppetizers salad or, grit croquettes are my favorite. The steal was properlt done. The fish looked and tasted amazing. Alberto and his wife have created a great little restaurant! Saturday nights there is live music - currently Naomi doing vocals to and James on the other guitar.

Finally fine dining in Chelem. Soma has a tranquil outdoor dining area with relaxing live music, a perfect place for a 'date night'. The menu was a marvelous change from the usual local fare with truly sophisticated dishes that one might find in upmarket fine dining establishments in major cities in the US. I was truly amazed at the quality of the food and the talent behind the menu offerings. My partner & I had grilled meats that were prepared to perfection were accompanied by marvelous pairings. All of this in such a relaxing and romantic setting.... pure bliss!
