“Greatest queso dip ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

So you go on a cruise and get dumped off near a senior frogs! Cliche! Get in a cab and go here. It is a local joint with awesome queso dip! Worth it alone. Because it is local and not know to tourists it is pretty cheap. This is a place for you to go way away from your cruisin compadres! Food is awesome!

Thank Grazer-Florida

“Exceeded Our Expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

New to Cozumel, my husband and I had been encouraged by two different parties to go to La Choza for dinner while in town, so I looked them up on Trip Advisor and read a couple of negative things; I worried that the food might be hit-or-miss or you’d have to be a regular to appreciate it, but the in-person recommendations had been so positive that we decided to go anyway. This was our first-ever trip to Mexico, and I’m not going to lie--We were uncomfortable, getting out of the car in the middle of a less-than-new part of a town in a strange place, in a country in which we’d been warned about pickpockets and other crime. Once inside the restaurant, though, we soon felt welcome and safe. We were immediately served chips with a wonderful sauce (which you can purchase to take home) and got some guacamole, too. I dare say it was the best guac we had all week; chunky and flavorful. We do not speak Spanish, but the host did and made us feel very comfortable. We ordered fajitas (one with just mahi-mahi and other with both fish and chicken). Both were just plain fantastic. While we ate, a mariachi duo sang and played, and they were very good. The wait staff was excellent. We almost hated to leave, but we finally did and eventually got our bearings around San Miguel Square. La Choza was definitely the best part of our visit to Cozumel proper, and we highly recommend it.

“Wonderful Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

We came here on the advice from our taxi driver when asked where would you take your family out to eat? The answer .. La Choza! We are so glad we tried them out. We had dinner one night and the fajitas were really good. The breakfast, though was the best. Big hearty eggs and chorizo. Tasty fruit juices made right there in the bar. (Try the mango, yummy!) All at reasonable prices. When we go back to Cozumel, this is where we will eat!

“La Choza Restaurant of Cozumel - Authentic and Friendly!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

I live in Cozumel and really enjoy finding restaurants that just perfectly hit the spot when I have a particular craving... La Choza is that place I choose when I want a really fantastic full Mexican breakfast! Molletes, chilaquiles, huevos divorciados, whatever... you cannot go wrong!

The cafe de olla is simply perfect and the juice is fresh.

Don't get me wrong, while I LOVE breakfast here, lunch and dinner here is outstanding too; they have one of the best chicken mole on the island!

The service staff is always super friendly and attentive with an for detail. The restaurant is immaculately clean. There's a lot of love and commitment to service in this place.
