Due to the damage caused by Hurricane Wilma, the following description may no longer be accurate. Please consider this when making your travel plans. Resembling an ancient Maya home with its thatched roof and stuccoed walls, the food at La Choza has its roots in the Maya tradition. Breakfast is a choice of eggs, chorizo and other Mexican dishes. Lunch and dinner are authentic dishes like corn soup (pozole), beefsteak in poblano peppersauce and the ever popular pork stew (puerco entomatado). Enjoy your meal at the corner location. Reservations are a must.
My firend and I walked all the way into town for lunch at La Choza. And we were not disapointed. Absolutley delicioso! I orignally wanted to go there because I had heard they served one of my favorites - Queso Rellenos. But alas, our server said the chef only makes it for special occasions. Instead, we had the black chicken and mole chicken. The chicken was perfectly cooked and the sauces incredible. Simple, fresh, great. This is my favorite cuisine - peasant food. Nothing pretentious, just soooo good. Our server Alex was very sweet and great at his job. I cannot wait to go back some day and try more!
This is our favorite restaurant in Cozumel! We ate there last night!!!!!! They have outstanding service...and incredible food!
We enjoy the fajitas and mahi mahi! The mahi mahi is cooked to perfection! Much better (and cheaper) than I have ever eaten in Miami!
The plate is only $12 USD! Try the avacado pie! It tastes like cheese cake with cinnamon on top! Make sure and have the pie with coffee!
Nacho, one of the workers on the catamaran we went snorkeling on, recommended LaChoza and said the locals love to eat there. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the service and atmosphere were wonderful. We were on a cruise ship with only one day in Cozumel. I would love to fly to Cozumel and spend more time there.
La Choza has been in my triumvirate of must-eat-at restaurants in Cozumel since I started diving there in the mid 90's.
But when I was there in late December 2006, La Choza had been discovered by the Cuise Ship Crowd. No offense to you cruisers, but you slow us old timers down. Lines were stretched down calle Adolofo. It was the first time I ever had to wait for a table.
Anyway, since the word seems to be out, I might as well admit to how fantastic it is. Note to nervous gringos: it may seem like chaos, but the staff really is keeping track of the line. Relax. No one is cutting in front of you.
Everything is good, but my favorites are the Chicken in Mole and the chicken in black sauce.
You may be wondering what the other two great restaurants in my triumvirate are? Ha! I haven't had to wait in line at them yet, so I am not telling!
We always go here for a great time. Great food and good service, oh ya and Tequilla. This is one of a bout 5 places we go. It is local as is the other 4 we go to. The first ten on the list are big and expensive places to go.
A member of our travel group did his homework for our week long stay in Cozumel and researched several places to eat on the web. La Choza was by far my favorite place to eat, and the drinks were wonderful also. Our food was delivered promptly and we were served with genuine and friendy staff. We love scuba and I plan to eat at this restuarant everytime I visit Cozumel. LOVED IT!
The first time we were in Cozumel, we asked our saleslady at a jewelry store where a good place to eat and have a margarita that was not a tourist trap. She immediately said La Choza. We have been back 5 times. Alway one place we have to go when visting this shopping mecca. Now, if we could have only gotten the recipe for the free dip with chips. It was the best! A definate stop!
