All was well once the mosquitos were chased away with burning coils. Great food, grilled snapper seafood enchilidas, fish tacos, fried octopus and much more. Desserts were heavenly!

Fantastic everything! The seafood enchiladas were delicious, their special of the day was fresh and fantastic, the pairing of side dishes was perfect. All the food was beautifully presented. The sangria was a bit on the light side, but probably best for the food and tropical climate. The ambiance was definitely romantic and pleasant. The pace of serving seemed to... More

Have been coming to Kinta for years but the new patio hearth really added to the enjoyment by expanding the menu options. Excellent service and atmosphere, if you go definitely try the fresh catch!

Tried all of the appetizers and all were great: Panela cheese, empanadas, tacos, black bean soup, etc. then tried the ribs which were delicious and the Dorado Special which was amazing.

Possibly the best chicken I've ever had. My son had Mahi Mahi and it was perfectly prepared, my husband had ribs they there were excellent. This is a beautiful little place, and as I understand it you should plan way in advance if you will be in Cozumel during the high season. During the off season you won't have a... More
