Very good atmosphere, good food, an overall great place for a date. Price is the only reason it gets a4 star for me. This place has American prices and there are more tasty local spots

Great ambiance (nicely lit outdoor back patio, house-ish music) and friendly service. The food was mostly good and artfully presented. I had a octopus and sweet potato appetizer (but the octopus was not fresh at all, the heavy seasoning replaced a bit of taste) and also a fish entree (which tasted fresh and was grilled and was encrusted with various...

We came here on the recommendation of my LonelyPlanet book and we weren't disappointed. We got authentic modern Mexican food, exceeding anything we'd had in the US or Mexico. The artsy cocktails are unique, unlike anything you'd find in the states or elsewhere on the island, yet thoroughly Mexican. The outdoor patio makes up most of the seating, but be... More

They have a beautiful backgarden and a firewood where they prepare some of the food. I ate fish baked in the firewood (snapper) ! Very good, and good service👌🏽

We have gone to Kinta Restaurant the past 8 plus years when on island of Cozumel and have not been disappointed. Tonight we all had the snapper grilled in caste iron skillets with veggies on side. Fish was moist and fresh. Also tried the old fashioned margaritas and definitely tasty. USA's dollar to peso exchange makes this spot a good... More

Exquisitely prepared unusual dishes seasoned perfectly. Lots of choices but no beef at least during our visit. Excellent service. Would like to try their sister restaurant Condessa.

This is a hidden gem in Cozumel! It has a wonderful outdoor garden dining area in the back which isn't visible from the street. It is perfect for a romantic dinner! The food is exceptionally good and the presentation is great. They have a great selection of wines. I would highly recommend experiencing Kinta when vacationing in Cozumel.

Best meal during our Yucatan visit. Two fabulous salads, fresh and creative. Mine with ricotta that tasted of ricotta (rare event!) elegantly presented. Then a fish filet cooked in the wood burning oven in a cast iron skillet so that it kept deliciously warmed throughout the dinner. Exquisite! The pork rib (huge!) was also very tasty, tender and enriched with... More

This is a nice restaurant slightly off of 5th avenue, close to down town. The food was excellent- we ordered the elotes, pasta kahlo and the seafood enchiladas. The pasta was one of the best dishes I've had while traveling. It was moderately spicy and the flavors came together excellently. The service was friendly and efficient. We are in the... More

Just got back from Kinta. We ate in the back garden on a warm but pleasant evening. We had a bit of everything..squid small plate, pesto flatbread as apps. Mojito and a Sol for drinks. All were quite good. The dinners were outstanding. Fire grilled red snapper was very tasty but the star of the evening was the short ribs.... More
