We were directed here by our B&B's proprietess. We ordered the octopus appetizer to share, I had the Vera Cruz fish and my husband had the seafood enchiladas. The octopus was pretty bland, but we both enjoyed our entrees. We also enjoyed the margaritas and mojitos.

Well the food is great but they only told us that they only accepted American Express when they brought the bill. My husband and I kept trying to cash some money in the middle of the Carnival Parade and a lot of drunk people, which made the experience horrible. At the end, the food just became nothing after the mess.

I love this restaurant! All of the dishes reflect the creativity of the chef. My favorite is the Freska salad and chile rellanos.

Wifey and I had an excellent dinner here one night. The outdoor patio was very nice and much better ambience than sitting inside. The seafood was very good and go ahead and have the chocolate dessert. Well worth it. During our 5 days in Cozumel this restaurant served the best meal we had.

Food is delicious! Service is great! About a block or two off the square. Worth the walk. Food is a fusion mexican style.

Absolutely amazing! We loved the food. Excellent appetizers, amazing pork tenderloin and the bread pudding was so delicious. We really enjoyed the unique atmosphere with the rustic back area by the brick ovens. Would highly recommend the place.

Great date night on Saturday night with my wife, though not crowded on Saturday night to our surprise. We sat outside and were treated to live music, an excellent group, was perfect for our evening. We had fish (grouper) with polenta and the pork tenderloin. The grouper dish was good, the pork tenderloin was amazing! Both dishes were good sized... More

The food is always good at Kinta, but the Chile Rellanos were the best I have ever had. I also had an amazing salad, and wine. Service was excellent!

The ambiance, service and food were excellent! Loved the blind cat mascot, which kept us company throughout our meal.
