“One of best in Cozumel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

You walk into a romantic patio that is covered by large trees. The staff are excellent. The food is innovative and on a level above most of the restaurants. The wine list is also very good -- hard to find in Cozumel.

“Great atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

After reading reviews, we expected a better experience. We ordered a mojito and a glass of merlot. The mojito was watery and not a generous glass of wine. We stuck with starters. The kondesa cakes and jicama tacos were delicious. However, the strong scent of incense took away from the food. Modern music. The cat jumped on a nearby guest who was not pleased. This is a beautiful restaurant, but we could see it may not be for everyone. We have gone to Kinta twice and prefer that.

“Decent restaurant on cozumel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

Excellent enviroment and service, especially Cesar was very helpful and friendly. Delicious starter (In guak we trust) the main courses though were a bit sweeter for our taste (sea food pasta and pescado tomatillo).
Decent "alternative" mexican cuisine.

“Even better than remembered”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed a lovely salad with pears and hot cheese followed by mahi mahi that melted in your mouth. My partner had the shrimp dish which was also outstanding. Good savignon blanc and pan Katrina completed a wonderful meal. The atmosphere was lovely, good staff that were there when needed. Relaxing garden atmosphere and while price a bit higher than other places, you still got value for money with the quality of food and presentation.

“One of the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

Our party of 14 ate here last night. Nice decor, our staff was very friendly and the food was very good.... The desert was awesome! The place is located a block off of the main road in town and parking can be an issue, but definitely worth it.
