Looks quiet from the outside but amazing food. We had fish from the wood fired oven which was delicious. Sit out back for the best atmosphere to get away from the hubbub of San Miguel centre. Tastiest food on holiday so far.

The setting was beautiful - a very romantic garden with lights and trees. The food was amazing and the service was great. The tuna starter was especially great.

Outdoor dining atmosphere similar to their sister restaurant (Kondessa) with flavorful menu items. The wood fire oven items were excellent.

Just got back from a week of diving in Cozumel. Being off season, many of the places we usually like to eat were closing too early for dinner, and one stand by that we would always go to had closed down. There are a few others that we visit frequently, but it seemed the service and food had gone down... More

We went here with a big group. Although it was not great for picky eaters, there were lots of amazing food options! It was overall definitely a hidden gem.

This restaurant has some imaginative menu items. Most are tasty but one of our group's grouper fillet tasted old.

I went to this restaurant with my wife and it was simply superb. The cosy atmosphere is extremely well built and the food is simply amazing. Simple but yet so tasty, Kinta is a must in Cozumel. The service was spectacular and the "tempo" of the food was just perfect. Highly recommended. We'll go there again.

Last night we had a wonderful dinner at Kinta. The mango margaritas, drink of the day, were wonderful. Entrees of wood fired oven fish, and porky pasilla were excellent. And the special chicken for our friend with multiple allergies was very tasty. It almost made him forget he was eating chicken (again).

Service was attentive and the menu was very creative and everything was delicious. We had scallop and shrimp enchiladas with spinach and the Wood fired fish of the day which was Red Snapper and the side of roasted cauliflower. Each was wonderful and all very different. Dessert of coconut ice cream and chocolate sauce and cappucino topped off the meal... More
