This is a hidden delight, which moved not that long ago. They're not far from their old location, so don't dispair. And, in addition to their usual good service, they now have a lovely courtyard to enjoy. You'll of course be going there for the lobster bacon sandwhich, which never, ever disappoints. There are times that it's tricky to get... More

*** It's all about the lobster bacon sandwich*** Le Chef is just down the street from Aldora Divers. It's a tradition - after arriving on the island, we check in with Aldora then go for our first meal at Le Chef. We split our favorite item, a lobster bacon sandwich, and have a capresse salad. Once again we visited and... More

I cannot even begin to describe how truly disappointing this restaurant was and is! As someone who works as a chef and owns a food service restaurant/catering company I take reviews of peoples place of business very seriously as I understand how a negative review or one that does not accurately reflect the place of business can be damaging, but...

We once again returned to LeChef during our annual trip to Cozumel. The lobster and bacon sandwich was as amazing as usual, but LeChef has moved! They are right next door to where they used to be and now have an amazing outdoor courtyard space. Very comfortable and not too crowded, the new outdoor dining area is very nicely decorated,...

Beautiful garden setting in back. You can set inside but almost no one did. The service was excellent. There was an excellent menu plus specials. Everything was very fresh and well prepared. This may be our newest favorite restaurant. We had calamari to start which was a good portion, enough to share and great. I had a special which was... More

We went here with locals, who really like it and were pleased with our meal. The food was very good and the service was excellent, with a waitress who actually knew all the dishes and wines. The restaurant has indoor service and also a very pleasant outdoor courtyard.

First impression on the avenue does not draw you in, but once inside you can see all the effort that was put into this new location. Very attractive. The appetizers were delicious - grilled calamari and the caprese salad. Not huge portions - we could have shared a second calamari. Seafood dish my friend had was excellent. We tried the... More

Hello,Thanks for your feedback on the food and service, we will definitely look on our steak cooking to make it wow. Our veggies are not frozen but will check what happened in the process my guess is that we may have overcook them. We appreciate your business and will work in improving. More

We ate here on arrival night in Cozumel, mostly because it was close to our hotel and of the good reviews. The place looks rather unassuming from the street, but there is a nice little outdoor courtyard with room for 30 or so people in back. The service was good, and the food was excellent. We were so pleased that... More
