We really liked dining at Kinta. The food was delicious, the waitstaff speaks good english and was friendly and very attentive and Pancita, the little house cat, very cute and sweet. The atmosphere is funky and eclectic in a good way! Expect to pay a little more here but it's worth it.

In the past, their were few good restaurants in Cozumel That has changed thanks to The addition of Kinta and Condessa. These restaurants by Kris Wallanta, have given you a truly fine dining experience in a beautiful courtyard setting. My husband and I were there over the weekend for my birthday dinner and it did not disappoint. The fish was so delicious and of course the mojitos great. The final touch was my favorite, coconut ice cream with Kalua on top!
Do not miss these great restaurants. Cozumel is fortunate to have this outstanding chef!
Thanks Kris!

Who would guess there is such a lovy garden dining area when walking by in the street? We both had the fish of the day (mahi mahi) coated with black and white sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds. It was very fresh and perfectly cooked with nice vegetable sides of yucatan sweet potato mash and several orher items. The thing that made the dish stand out was the divine poblano pepper emulsion sauce. The hisbiskiss and fresca salads were very tasty with delicious dressings, though we would appreciated smaller portions when served as an appetizer. We split the chocolate bread pudding, though we usually skip dessert. Renee, our very attentive waiter, sold us on it and it was really good. We'll be back

We had a great experience here. Kinta is a block off the main road along the ocean. From the front it doesn't look like much - but it opens into a beautiful courtyard. The food was delicious! The presentation of the plates was so neat. And our waiter - Renee from TX - was awesome. Everyone should eat here at least once while on Cozumel.

Dining at Kinta is a special experience. The natural setting with the trees and stone walls is lovely. Service is friendly with knowledgeable waitstaff who also give great recommendations when asked. The food is every bit as good as the experience. This is our third time at Kinta in three trips to Cozumel and it has been consistently good. We look forward to trying their other restaurant, Kondesa, next time in addition to coming back here.
