This is our must-do list every time we come to Cozumel. Authentic Mexican food- alambres, tacos, real eye popping salsa verde and ice cold beer just a short walk away from the waterfront. 5 stars!

The place is average, the waiters are a little bit distracted, and sometimes slow, food is average, pricey for what you get; do not honnor offers, but the good point is that they open until 10pm

La Choza offers authentic Mexican cuisine, in a relaxed setting. We had a variety of dishes, I had shrimp Veracruz - shrimp cooked in white wine with onions and sweet peppers. The dish was very well prepared, the shrimp were perfectly cooked. A very good meal at reasonable prices.

This is hands down my favorite place to eat in Cozumel. As cruise ship crew I've been to a lot of places around town and this one always pleases. Great prices, good service, a speedy kitchen and the most delicious food! The chicken fajitas are a hit and their "La Choza" sauce is incredible. I usually buy a bottle to... More

The setting is unexciting, just a very large canteen room. It has no pretensions, everything is simple. The food is traditional Mexican and is really good, way better than rivals. Service is fast but friendly and the coktails come in massive glasses - do not try to drink two! They give you a free soup course which is tasty. We... More

Always my first stop after checking in the hotel. Usually I go with the fish of the day which includes rice and beans. Service is great price is right and food is excellent. Lots of local families which i believe supports the theory that this is authentic local food.

No trip to Cozumel is complete for me unless I go to La Choza. Their food is excellent, their salsas are stupendous, and their margaritas are potently delicious.

La Choza is terrific for lunch or dinner. Excellent soups. Off the beaten path and very good, quality fare. We have been going here for years on dive trips and it still is wonderful.

Best darned grilled whole fish on the island. Staff are so nice. Located in downtown Cozumel, a couple of blocks from the main drag. Beer is served ice cold. Go and get some
