They moved next door and have a much improved patio, been coming to the island for 10 years and always eat here. If you have never had their bacon lobster sandwich you must try it. They are starting to serve breakfast again as well.

A more upscale place with a menu of primarily steaks (cooked perfectly) and pasta. The tortilla soup is probably the best I've had and the tuna tartare perfect and huge. Ask to be seated in the lovely garden.

One of our favourite restaurants moved to a great new location since we were there two years ago. Le Chef now has a great outdoor courtyard to dine in. One of my favourite things about this restaurant in the past was their catch of the day which you could have made with a number of different sauce options. I didn't... More

Great atmosphere in the cute courtyard, great service, but how terrible was the food! We ordered Angus Hamburgers, and we got processed rubber grey meat! Calling it ABERDEEN ANGUS !!? hilarious! How do you want it cooked ? ...they should have said 'How many minutes in the microwave?' ! We could not finish it! Very disappointing! Please avoid!

We had a great lunch at Le Chef. The whole group loved their food. Great quality and the back patio was a lovely atmosphere.

Awesome, awesome, awesome. Famous lobster bacon sandwich, worth the raves it receives. Son and I don't like marble rye bread, no problem, they put it on a sub bun, perfect, delicious. Tortilla soup we split also. They brought out two good size bowls, one each. You guessed it, yup, best ever. Finished by sharing something new to us, Caesar salad... More

Loved the ambience of the back courtyard - lovely and peaceful. We all had lobster BLTs and we definitely should have shared. So rich and yummy. Definitely a recommended stop on your trip to Coz.

Loved this place! We come to Cozumel every year and this will be added to the "usual" places we go. Beautiful back patio.

I have always loved this place. I just came back to see that it had moved to a new and larger location with outdoor seating. It's absolutely lovely and I am so glad to see that such a hard working restaurant is being rewarded by a better and bigger building. I personally think it's due to the bacon & lobster... More
