This and its sister restaurant, Kondesa, are probably the two foodie restaurants on the island. I live in New York, and I was still impressed.

Attentive service, excellent food, beautiful intimate atmosphere. We ended up booking the Cooking Workshop the next day because the food was delicious. Thanks Chef Kriss for a great dinner and a fabulous cooking class the following day!

We had dinner at Kinta on July 24-awesome meal overall! We started with the special ahi tuna on tostadas, had the catch of the day with pumpkin seed crust, sweet potato purée and finished with a bread pudding with banana ice cream. Great service, atmosphere, food, and the cute cat that kept coming by our table. Reasonable wine and beer... More

Excellent food prepared and served with flair and passion for serving. Awesome atmosphere, tucked into a side street, opens to a beautiful courtyard. Great staff, unbelievable food well prepared. A party of nine served at a great pace and every meal was over the top good.

This was one of the best meals I had while in Cozumel. The food was delicious with good presentation (I ordered the steak, which was perfectly cooked and flavored well with a combination of sauces). The servers were very attentive and friendly without being overbearing. I also enjoyed the low-lit garden setting.

Lovely garden setting. Attentive service but thinks they're a bit too cool. Sauces were amazing but my Shrimp was overcooked. Bugs kept bugging us but they did offer off. So 5 stars in some areas but 1 in others. Bit disappointed.

Hands down, best dinner in Cozumel in our two visits. The outside is unassuming, and gives no clue as to the brilliant gourmet dishes that are served. The setting is mellow and prepares your senses for enjoying the food. Incense wafts through the air, it's shady and cool, and candles are lit and corners softly glow as it gets dark.... More

I had read the reviews and decided I definitely wanted to try Kinta while there on vacation in June this year. I took my wife and two adult step-daughters. The girls all enjoyed margaritas - they were the best they had on the island. The wine list was good and not too pricey. The food was great and we also... More

The food and the service was excellent. My husband has a tree-nut allergy and they were very helpful to make sure that nothing happened when we dined there. This restaurant was recommended to us by the dive instructor. She did not mislead us.
