“Wonderful experience!”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

As always, Kinta delivers. The food is high class with terrific presentation. The flavor profiles are wonderful too. You absolutely must try this place. The margaritas are terrific too. I went with the old Porky Pasilla. I haven't had it in quite a while and forgot just how good it was.

“Great fine dining off the beaten path”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

Each course was delicious and every member of our party enjoyed what they got to eat and especially liked the specialty drinks! The atmosphere was very nice and relaxing. Service was outstanding too and very accommodating, since I had diet restrictions and they delivered!

“Awesome first experience!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

This is our first night in Cozumel and we just had a delicious meal at Kinta. We ordered the black bean soup and the fish Albondigas (amazing!!!) for appetizers. I thought the black bean soup was delicious but my husband thought it was better than delicious. Get the fish Albondigas if you like crab cakes because they will blow your mind!! For the main dishes we ordered the Chile Relleno (highly recommended by my husband) and I ordered the pork tenderloin which again, I loved. It's incredibly soft and has just the right amount of flavor, not too strong. Just right. Jimmy was our server and he was wonderful. We plan on going back again!

Reviewed 1 June 2014

We discovered Kinta on our latest trip to Cozumel.
Highly recommend it. Not much from the outside, but a beautiful outdoor setting, wonderful food, knowledgeable and attentive staff make for a very pleasant evening.

“The Best in Cozumel”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

I have visited Cozumel 22 times over the years and have eaten in every imaginable restaurant there is. Kinta is the finest the island has to offer. The continuous evolving of the outdoor dining space is remarkable. Beautiful seating, trees, greenery, lanterns and canopies. Kris (the owner) never stops adding and improving on an already marvelous space. The appetizers are a twist on conventional Mexican staples. Very inventive. The fish is the freshest and beautifully prepared and surprisingly (for a small island) the meat dishes are fantastic. Try the pork tenderloin. Specials are every night and if you want to try something different, there are new cooking classes given by the owner. The staff is extremely attentive, friendly and accomodating. Can't wait to return in a few months.
