Try it and you will fall in love with this place ! Best lobster sandwich you will ever taste. Everything else delicious too! I will recommend Le chef for any hour of the day , they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner all equally tasteful and meticulous prepared. Don't miss it while you're visiting the island .

Conveniently located at its new location (beside the old one at 5&5) in the heart of downtown, Le Chef is a wonderful dining experience. The open-air courtyard is lovely and it looks as though the new deli area is just about to open. A must-have is the lobster sandwich.

After hearing so much about this place we finally tried it. My wife and I both had the lobster sandwich. It was on the rich side for me. It was good, but I didn't love it. We had the fried Brie appetizer and that was amazing. I would go back and try something else for dinner. The patio out back... More

We ate dinner here having the Lobster bacon sandwich and wahoo with lobster mushroom sauce. Both were very good. There best seating is the quiet and romantic garden in the back. Service is excellent!

Enjoyed our last night in Cozumel here. My husband had the lobster-bacon sandwich and I had the lobster pasta. Both were good, but the highlight was the tortilla soup.

We tried Le Chef for the first time yesterday - it ticked all the boxes for us. From the wonderful service (thanks Theresa!) to the incredible Lobster & Bacon sandwich and great Sangria it was a fantastic experience. But what really put it over the top was the beautiful courtyard (which you can't see from the entrance) out back. A... More

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.
