Like other TA reviewers, I liked Kinta. The food was good, fresh and well prepared, with interesting flavour combinations and decent enough portions. The service was friendly and attentive. Price wise it was fair.

We were out with a group from the US and had a few days of good local food. We wanted to get back to better dining but not touristy. Kinta was perfect. The back deck was a little like a resort in and of itself. The food was excellent. Fresh fish with their own sauce as well as a full range or entrees. Good Wine is not easy to find in Cozumel restaurants but Kinta had a good selection. We would advise this restaurant if you want a better dining experience than any of the normal Mexican places.

Have been going to Cozumel for several years now and always make it a point to dine at Kinta. The entrees are imaginative and well presented.

Great place. All the action and customers are in back in the lovely garden seating area, so don't be fooled by the lack of people when you look in the windows. Delicious, inventive food. Friendly and competent wait staff. Look forward to returning on subsequent visits to the island.

This is our third year going to Kinta and our preference over Kondesa. It is a smaller, more intimate garden setting, absolutely beautiful! We were two hours late for our reservation, arriving at 10:00, but the staff was very attentive. Our server spoke great English. Even though their cherry bomb appetizer is no longer on the menu, they still made it. Not as good as it was before, kind of fishy and a texture like tuna fish. I don't think it was grouper having ate a lot of it in Cozumel. We had the Kinta salads. Great flavor, but next time I would ask not to overdress it. Our entrees were excellent, particularly the Chile Relleno. Even though it not quite perfect, it was a special evening. Staff welcomed our feedback and we told them we would be writing a review. They do need to update their website as the prices are about 25% higher and more comparable to meals in the U.S . It was a better value with previous price points. We look forward to returning next year.
