Ate there last night and had a wonderful time. The staff is attentive and service above average. Had Cherry bombs, Ahi tostada, grilled octopus and the flatbread for appetizers. Flatbread average but everything else surpassed expectations. Enchiladas were excellent pork ribs fatty but very tasty, pesto with shrimp and chicken good and the wood fired fish was fresh but somewhat... More

Let's face it, Cozumel is known for some of the best diving in the world. High end cuisine? Well, not so much. That has changed with Kinta. The octopus flatbread reminded me of something they'd serve at Spago--simply fabulous. Companion opted for the beet salad, presented beautifully. Peskado served with cilantro rice and roasted cauliflower was delicious, and I was... More

Kinta was a very welcome surprise, hidden away from the the main tourist areas - a foodie's delight at very reasonable prices. The quiet garden with the wood fired oven provided a backyard ambience, perfect for spending time with friends or family. Twists on classic Mexican dishes were as tasty as they were beautifully presented. We recommended the tuna tostadas,... More

Great food and service. Sat in the garden area and it was wonderful. Would go there again for sure. The cat in garden area made me feel like I was at home.

Kinta is always a lovely time, with excellent food, wonderful drinks and/or wine, and impeccable service. I love the backyard space, too - very cool and chic. I love Kinta. Definitely a great place for a nice dinner.

We had dinner at Kinta on 3/5. We had made a reservation for 3/4 but the monsoon downpours deterred us. We have eaten at Kinta on previous trips but if memory serves, this was our best meal there yet. A glass of wine , a mojito, a bottle of wine (hey don't judge) 2 apps, 2 entrees & 1 dessert... More

Ordered the tuna appetizer that others recommended and it was lovely. My main dish a pork tenderloin served with yams was a little disappointing and tasteless. Partner had stuffed pepper with was fine but not outstanding. Cocktail ok. Service was good. Just not necessarily worth the extra money for the garden experience.

Unique, interesting menu prepared outdoors in their wood fired oven! Has a chic, elegant feel in a cozy garden.

My husband and I love good food and found this place to be perfect. The food was creative and delicious. We each had a salad to start and it was mind-blowing. I had the fish of the day which was red snapper and it was cooked in their wood oven and served on a sizzling hot plate. My husband had... More
