Eating at Kinta was one of the dining highlights of our time in Cozumel. What a delight to walk through the restaurant and into the charming courtyard in back. It was just beautiful and exactly the type of experience we were hoping for. Every dish we had was incredible. The staff was attentive and friendly. Don't miss this place on... More

There are nothing but great things to say about Kinta!!! My favorite is the almond-encrusted pork tenderloin - it's absolutely perfect every time. The white sangria is to die for as well. The service is attentive without being overbearing, the atmosphere is quaint and romantic, and the food is always spot-on! Kinta gets my highest recommendations!

A welcome break from basic Mexican food and nice to have something a little more upmarket. Gorgeous setting, worth the price for a special night out.

We loved the outdoor atmosphere and ambiance. The only drawbacks were the loud Americans seated next to us which dampened the romantic vibe, but that is difficult to escape in Cozumel. The staff was very attentive. The food was very good but not spectacular. We actually tried to go back a second night but had not made reservations and could... More

We are from the New York City area. We came to Kinta this week with friends who own a vacation home in Cozumel. Great atmosphere and ambience. The food was fantastic. Our waiter was great!

So after reading all of the amazing reviews here about Kinta we had to try it on a recent trip. I really liked the restaurant and thought it was very good, but everything came up a bit short of being great. The food, the décor, the ambiance, the service....everything was just a little bit less appealing than I thought they'd... More

The patio in the back was outstanding as well as the margaritas! I ordered a salad to start and it came on two plates? Our waiter advised us "we know what old people like". I'm 48 and my girlfriend is 45 :( The stuffed chicken and vegetables was less than average but the tortilla soup was very good. Maybe they... More

We really liked dining at Kinta. The food was delicious, the waitstaff speaks good english and was friendly and very attentive and Pancita, the little house cat, very cute and sweet. The atmosphere is funky and eclectic in a good way! Expect to pay a little more here but it's worth it.

These restaurants by Kris Wallanta, have given you a truly fine dining experience in a beautiful courtyard setting. My husband and I were there over the weekend for my birthday dinner and it did not disappoint. The fish was... More

Who would guess there is such a lovy garden dining area when walking by in the street? We both had the fish of the day (mahi mahi) coated with black and white sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds. It was very fresh and perfectly cooked with nice vegetable sides of yucatan sweet potato mash and several orher items. The thing that... More
