“Beautiful Garden Setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

The food was great and reasonably priced considering the quality. The garden dining room is unique and lush. The owner of this restaurant and Kinta knows how to create a setting that elevates the experience.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

Really great food. We rotated between kondesa and kinta during our visit. By far the best restaurants on the island. Great outdoor seating!

“All Around Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

Picked this restaurant from tripadvisor for our dinner on the last night of our trip. Went with 4 others at about 7:30pm, walked right in and got a table. I was actually disappointed when I left because it was pretty dead and I wished it had been busier...more people need to know about this place.

The Jikama tacos were unreal! My girlfriend got the Queso Fundido app and it was incredible as well. 5 out of the 6 of us elected for the recommended special which was grilled red snapper, garlic shrimp and vegetables all drizzled with a light sauce infused with beer. It was fantastic! All of our apps and entrees came out on time and hot. It's also nice to see a restaurant that still maintains proper course serving procedure - apps, salads/soups, entree, dessert. If you didn't get your salad when the rest of your party got their appetizers, it's because you weren't supposed to.

Price was great in my mind, for what we got. Under $100 USD including tip - we had 2 apps, 2 entrees and 2 desserts along with multiple bottled waters and soft drinks. The service was amazing as well. Waiter was attentive, courteous and obviously enjoying his job. Long story short, this place is a nice change of pace and I'd recommend it to anyone!

“Creative Menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

We decided to visit this restaurant on our last night in Cozumel, The restaurant is setup in a beautiful courtyard with lighted trees and gardens. The menu is very creative and the presentations are beautiful. We had the fish & shrimp special and the surf & turf and it was delicious. Be sure to save room for the chocolate cake. The chef/owner stopped by to check on us and we had a nice conversation with him. The pricing is reasonable and the service very good.

“Attentive staff, beautiful ambience, creative menu!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Our family if four ate at Condesa last night while vacationing in Cozumel. We had a blast. We waited at the bar for a table and found our bartender to be witty and quite knowledgable. He engaged in conversation with each of us. Our servers were quite attentive and actually all had a wonderful sense if humor. Everything we ate was fabulous from my and my husband's fish, to my daughter's pasta off the kids menu to my son's specially prepped gluten free surf and turf. I finished with a glass of Malbec while my daughter opted for the churros-which were bite sized with Carmel and chocolate dipping sauces. She inhaled them!!
