Kinta has a wonderful lit outdoor garden that they seat you at. It was really beautiful, a great place for couples to go. Prices were not bad, about 20-25 per person. Obviously a lot higher the more drinks you get. The food was delicious, worth the visit.

The outdoor patio seating was beautiful. The service was attentive and friendly. The food was exceptional, a special find in Cozumel. The grouper was perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious. My fiancé ordered the filet and did have to send it back to be cooked a bit more. He likes his meat medium well which is difficult with a very thick cut steak. The rest of our party was finished eating by the time they came back with his steak which was a bit awkward and uncomfortable for him. The drinks were splendid! I would say that it's a bit pricey for the portions served, but that's to be expected at a finer restaurant in a tourist destination.

We were celebrating our anniversary in Cozumel and had this place recommended for us. A reservation was made for us and as soon as we showed up for it we were brought to a nice table that was somewhat private. The outdoor space at this restaurant is beautiful and doesn't make you feel like you're in the middle of town. The food was good and we got a complimentary dessert. The service is excellent and the staff was very attentive. Definitely one of the higher end options in Cozumel but not over priced!

...and I love grouper! I love to see them when I am diving and I love have it out for dinner. Kinto nailed the fish with a fusion of pumpkin seed topping that added just a special crunch for the dish. We both had grouper and it was spot on. Side dishes of veggies added well and we ended the meal with a delicious bread pudding. Wine selection was also excellent. Kinto is new to us and we will be back...it was a great meal in beautiful Cozumel.

The food at Kinta Bistro is likely the best available in Cozumel. It is a mix of local flavor and contemporary cuisine. Their black bean soup, Peskado Koketo fish and Chile Relleno vegetable dish are exceptional. The front of the restaurant can be a bit deceptive, but venture in and enjoy the courtyard sitting area. The food unquestionably deserves a 5 rating, but we give it a 4 because the courtyard can be a bit warm and they try a little too hard to be contemporary. Definitely dine at Kinta at least once during your visit when you want exceptional food and a switch from local cuisine in local restaurant environment to something closer to a fine dining experience.
