Wonderful food, great service!! Kondesa is it's sister restaurant but the food is dramatically different! I encourage you to go around dusk and sit in the garden enjoy a wonderful appetizer and a drink and take in the atmosphere. The relaxed garden coupled with the fresh wonderful food will refresh even the most tired of tourist! Then the next night... More

We really enjoyed our meals here. My husband and I both had grouper and it was probably the best grouper we have ever had. The staff was so nice and friendly and were very attentive. We also ate at the sister restaurant, Kondesa, and really enjoyed it. Both are definitely on our list when we go back.

From the outside, Kinta looks to be another hole in the wall of downtown Cozumel. But when you enter the doors, and see the beautiful garden that awaits you, you realize you have walked into some place special. Kris, the owner, greeted us as when entered and seated us to be waited on by a very nice young man from... More

I have been living in Cozumel for over 21 years and have many favorite restaurants but I must say that this is my ultimate favorite one, The thing I like the most about Kinta is that the platters are not so big that as soon as they serve you just by looking at the amount of food you are not...

We would wholeheartedly like to thank the staff ( especially Jimmy) for a very wonderful anniversary meal. The food was excellent but what made the experience more special was the attentive team, the lovely courtyard setting and the lovely chocolate brownie cake with an anniversary message.

This is our top five restaurants in the world so far. The presentation, food, flavor, service is spectacular. It keeps us coming back, time and time again. The Owner/and Chef has classes on Wednesday and Fridays from noon to 3pm. You get to cook a three course meal under the guidance and training of the Chef. It is fabulous.

We tried Kinta during a week's stay in Cozumel, based on reviews here and were a bit disappointed. The garden at the back is a lovely setting (the inside area though is bland), but the place tries too hard to be smart, modern and sophisticated and doesn't quite pull it off. The downside is it doesn't feel very Mexican at... More

My girlfriend and I had a great romantic dinner in the inner garden of kinta Mexican bistro. The food was delicious.. We had fish tacos as an appetizer and a kozumel salad and pumpkin seed crusted fish as main dishes. All were special, yummy and very aesthetically presented. The only downside is the mosquito problem.. Which was solved with the... More

We go to Kinta's every time we visit Cozumel. This is our fourth time and the food was perfectly prepared and delicious again. Our friends who live in Cozumel recommended this restaurant to us several years ago. Their menu items are unique. Your selection will be different than anything that you will find anywhere else. The food is exceptional and... More

Kinta has a wonderful lit outdoor garden that they seat you at. It was really beautiful, a great place for couples to go. Prices were not bad, about 20-25 per person. Obviously a lot higher the more drinks you get. The food was delicious, worth the visit.
