The food is excellent and unique, a gourmet high end version of Mexican food. The restaurant has a beautiful and cozy yard in the back. Excellent for quiet, relaxed and romantic nights. The prices are affordable.

Our hotel and dive masters sent us here and we loved every second of our evening. The decor and setting is quite serene and the service is solid. We loved the beet salad and the tuna tostadas appetizer. And the Bread pudding was sinful, that is if you have room after their perfect chile rellenos

Clean, delicious signature food, try the fish tacos al pastor or the pizza, tuna also very good in a mango sauce,makes room for a very good cofee and chocolate cake

Went here after reading the reviews and having a wonderful time at the sister restaurant Kondesa. Nice ambiance, food was well prepared and presented, and the wood fired grill imparted a nice flavor to the fish. The service though was not up to the standard that we had expected, nice and attentive but can use a little polish. They bring... More

Probably our favorite meal of our Mexican holiday. We had been once before several years ago, but it was even better than we remembered. The garden is lovely and really helps set the scene for the evening. The tuna tostadas had some sort of tropical salsa and were absolutely out of this world. I had never had shrimp with mole...

We were highly recommended to this spot by a handful of locals, our concierge, and some fellow divers as well. Seemed like everyone was talking about this place. Seemed too good to be true, but were not disappointed. First off the interior decor is very romantic and colorful, but the real treat is the alfresco dining in the back garden.... More

We loved the setting and food was good. the wood burning oven made for delicious roasted potatoes and cauliflower. My grouper was also baked well in the wood oven.

After several awful meals in Cozumel, we found Kinta Mexican Bistro. We very much enjoyed our food here and the atmosphere on the patio in the back was lovely. I especially recommend the tuna tosadas!

We, a party of five, had dinner at this wonderful place. The cocktails are different, not just the usual Mojito, but expect some unknown ingredients. Service was friendly and useful. But the best thing was the food: the ribs tasty and tender, the mole just right and the fish grilled to its perfection. Don`t expect the biggest plates, but as... More

Excellent and sophisticated Mexican food and cocktails. We had seared tuna, shrimp & scalp enchiladas, and pork tenderloin. Highly recommended.
