Good food & vegetarian options!

This place was recommended by a local. It was a nice dinner place, the ambience was really nice at night. We had both of the vegetarian appetizers and entrées. I had them spicy up my pasta dish, which I really enjoyed. We thought all of the food was good, and definitely recommend trying this place... read more

Imaginative and professionally trained chef/owner produces amazing dishes, the latest using a recently installed wood oven. It was simply one of the best meals I've had anywhere, ever. What a find!

We stumbled on this restaurant in a street near our hotel. What a GREAT find!! It was just fabulous. Everyone at our table was beyond impressed by dishes such as snapper in a pumpkin seed crust; tuna sushi appetizer; salad with shrimp. Great wine by the glass. Rene our waiter and the rest of the restaurant team provided attentive service;... More

Seafood enchiladas - very good. A number of good menu choices, Sat outside in the garden atmosphere. Very nicely set up. Will go back again next time I'm in Cozumel.

A couple I went diving with in Tulum recommended this as a must eat at restaurant in Cozumel, so I made reservations a few days before (which probably wasn't needed). We ate dinner at 7 and were one of two parties there (how?!). Service was okay, but the food is really great. I got the tamarind shrimp with cilantro rice... More

Ki'inta is fine Mexican food. Not your everyday, burritos and enchiladas, these are haute enchiladas, and tacos! Romantic environment, we were seated on the beautiful patio in the back. Lovely lantern light. There's the possibility of mosquitos, but Ki'inta provides bug spray at the front. How thoughtful! They really want you to enjoy the experience. Friendly and efficient staff.

We really enjoyed our meal here. I'm vegetarian and there were options for me to eat. The service was great too. But best as the atmosphere in the garden. I highly recommend.

Let me start by saying Chef Chris and his staff provides a "high end" dinning experience at a very reasonable price. Nature provides the beautiful gardens for your visual pleasure. Diana & I referred many friends & guests over the years and frankly Kinta pleased every one. It is our top restaurant in a list that includes many contenders...Hippie Bob

My favorite place in Cozumel. Superb food & atmosphere. Service could be better. Cater to larger groups. Couples not so much. Went twice, same service both times. Will definitely go here again for food & atmosphere. Would recommend this place to friends.

I have been here two times now. Once, with my husband to celebrate my birthday and once with a group of friends. Both times were absolutely fabulous. They provide above and beyond service and go out of their way to make their guests happy. The food is absolutely delicious!
