“Unforgettable Dinner”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

The food here was very good (particularly the soup!), and the space was creative and interesting. But it was the service and hospitality that sent this meal completely over-the-top. The gentlemen who run this restaurant are complete and utter charmers who love what they do and make you feel like long-time friends visiting their home. We will, without a doubt, be talking about our meal at La Choza Del Chaman for many years to come.

“Their breakfast might be great but dinner was not”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

We visited Choza del Chaman based on the tripadvisor ranking without really reading all the reviews, that was a mistake. All the glowing reviews were for their breakfast fare, which might just be fantastic...dinner was not. Quality, service and value were all lacking and left us with our only disappointing meal in Puerto Morelos. Items were ordered and not brought, incorrect items delivered, fish was served raw in the center (and it wasn't tuna), a $160 peso shrimp dinner came with six small shrimp and a few leaves of lettuce "salad," the fish that was cooked was smothered in sauce so you couldn't even taste the fish...maybe that was their plan. Would not return, even for breakfast at this point.

“Best breakfast, best meal period in PM”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

Fresh made butter, fresh made marmalade, fresh baked bread, fresh coffee, just to name a few of the delicious breakfast items. This place was AWESOME. My husband and I are spending 8 days in PM and have had plenty of time to try out all the restaurants. Hands down, La Choza has been the best and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did! (Note: They are closed Monday's, we were sad to learn that when we tried to go back from breakfast this AM!)

“Best Breakfast in P.M.”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

We ate breakfast here several times and it was great each time. Polo de la Rosa, is charming and he has his own chaya plant which is used to flavor the eggs. The bread is baked by a local German baker.

“FANTASTIC”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

Outside looked 'interesting' so we stopped to look at the menu positioned outside the entrance.
The delightful owner introduced himself and informed us the menu was for breakfast only.
He talked us thru some options for lunch, we were hooked!
Sat down and had a wonderful fresh drink made from a local leaf, followed by stuffed peppers. all with lots of really nice salsa and guacamole (both made as we sat there).
Great food, great ambiance, great host, great prices. All followed by great Margarita's.
Cannot reccomend highly enough and the comments written in marker pen all over the tables, chairs and walls testify that we were not alone in having a wonderful, authentic Mexica experience.
