Sister restaurant to Kondesa, this one was way better. Make sure you try the lion fish appetizer. Outdoor seating so make sure you pick a nonrainy night.

It was our first time dining at Kinta. What a unique dining pleasure! The food is excellent and the wait staff is equally as outstanding. They also have a great selection of wines. The outdoor garden dining area is so peaceful and beautiful. The owners of Kinta have done an outstanding job with the gourmet food and quiet ambiance. Loved... More

This restaurant is not to be missed when on the island. Amazing service, deliciously inventive food, and an incredible indoor and outdoor ambiance. One of the very best restaurant experiences I've had in the last few years. Thank you Kinta! We'll be back.

We have been going to Kinta since it first opened and it continues to not disappoint in atmosphere and uniquely prepared food. Can't wait to try Dos Santos in Denver opening soon Good luck Kris and Jason on introducing a truly great eating concept to the States

We didn't have a reservation so we sat inside as the patio out back was full, but once some tables had cleared the waiter offered to move us out back for dessert and drinks. The interior is nice, but the patio area was better. We were very happy with our meal, the service and the price.

We were 10 people and were treated very well. The appetizers were spot on and the service was flawless.Of the two "sister" restaurants we thought this was the better choice. Parking here is a problem so ask the hostess where the designated parking is....just around the corner!

To my utter joy, my boyfriend suggested Kinta for our special dinner out in celebration of my thirty-third birthday. Apparently it was in the Fodor's Yucatan Peninsula guide for Cozumel. We arrived without a reservation on a Thursday night and after a moment of hostess concern, the two of us were seated right away. We sat outside and the ambience... More

Without a doubt our best meal in Cozumel. Creative and delicious with many healthy options to chose from. The fish tacos were divine, and quite different to any other fish tacos we'd tried in other taquerias. If you're into beer then try the Bohemia Obscura! Incredibly friendly service too

We generally eat at least once at Kinta when we are here on Cozumel, and are never disappointed. The service, atmosphere and food were all excellent. In our group of 10 there are a lot of different tastes and everyone had a great meal.

My family discovered Kinta a couple of years back -- the kids (now almost 16 and 13) have talked about how great it was ever since. Last month we did an extended family trip to Puerto Aventura and they were determined to navigate the logistics (including a changing ferry schedule) to bring their cousins, grandmother, aunt and uncle back to...
