Happily, this restaurant was only four blocks from the place I was staying and 2 blocks from the dive shop so it was a very convenient spot for lunch. My brother and I both had the lobster and bacon sandwich and we both approved with gusto. As were all of the other independent restaurants we visited during our trip, it... More

Known for their Lobster/bacon sandwich..seating indoors and outside patio. Eduardo has a long history on the island and this is a good place to dine lunch or dinner.

We love this restaurant, went a couple of times on this trip. Pasta dishes are delicious. Both times we had excellent service. Drinks are good, loved the Sangria. New garden area is a lovely atmosphere, we had noticed the new location and were surprised to see it so quiet...until we walked in and realized their was an inner courtyard. One... More

Visited Le chef with a party of 7 for dinner. Our fist time eating at Le chef for dinner instead of lunch. It was fabulous!! Instead of my customary lunchtime lobster sandwich I sampled the salmon and hubby had a surf and turf with lobster. Both were delicious! Service was great and after we all drank the 2 bottles of...

If you haven't been to Le Chef in awhile, check out their new location - just next door on Av 5 y Calle 5. The new garden area is lovely and does justice to their fabulous menu - especially their lobster & bacon sandwich. Yummm .... And best cappacino in town.

We visited on the recommendation of another visitor and a dive master. Everyone raves about the lobster and bacon sandwich, but we did not feel like a sandwich, or a pizza or a salad. That left some pasta dishes. We nearly did not eat there, but settled on a spaghetti primavera. It was astonishing. It is one of the tastiest... More

We walked by Le Chef on our way to a restaurant we had been to last time we were in Cozumel. We came on Trip Advisor, noticed the good reviews and decided to give it a try. We split the Lobster Bacon sandwich (without mayo or pesto) and it was seriously incredible. Definitely wanted to steal my husband's half off... More

We went to LE Chef with a group of 6 friends. Everything was perfect! ...I think it's the best tortilla soup I've ever had (I asked, and the owner told me they make the stock from scratch). Everyone raved about everything they ordered. Nothing wasn't perfect. I will continue to recommend Le Chef to all my friends and family! So... More

After having some pretty mediocre sandwiches in Cozumel, we were pleasantly surprised by this casual spot. The pita with grilled chicken was simple but fresh and well done. The lobster sandwich was also tasty although a little oily, A cute place with adequate service.

We happened upon this little gem on the advice of our airbnb host. It was walking distance from the downtown area. The music was an 80's theme, very fun and upbeat. We started with a glass of wine and a beer. Wonderful Cab Sav!!! We weren't tremendously hungry so I ordered a spinach salad and Jim ordered the lobster and... More
