Very nice atmosphere and awesome staff, but the food was just weird. I had red snapper and my husband had shrimp mole, then we got the corn on the cob side dish. None of it was inedible, just really different taste. I guess if you want something really different, go here.

I came here with my girlfriend and then we returned with a friend. Everything we tried was superb. I especially liked the glazed slow cooked pork, yum! Only thing I'd note is that the mains don't have a lot of side to them so if you need some green then order a side salad. Highly recommended.

Six of us visited this sister restaurant to Kondesa, and we were not disappointed! The food was artfully presented and we all ordered different selections. The wood-fired selections were especially good. Lobster tacos were a hit as were the grilled snapper, pork pastillas, and shrimp in mole sauce. Terrific service. Great atmosphere in the lovely courtyard. We look forward to... More

Not great for vegans as almost everything has queso. The food presentation was beautiful and there was a variety of dishes on the menu, unfortunately, mostly meat-based. I was able to order two salads sin queso. The dressing on the spinach salad was amazing. The veganized beets were underwhelming. The cauliflower was was vegan as is (or so I thought)... More

Kinta definitely is a contender for best dining experience and food on the Island of Cozumel when it comes to a fine dining dinner experience. We ate there twice in the week that we were on the island, both times leaving extremely satisfied. My brother had the pumpkin seed crusted Grouper, which he said was some of the best food... More

We had dinner here one evening after a recommendation from a fellow friend/diver. The food, drinks and service were excellent. The price was reasonable. It is open air dining.

We ate here after visiting its sister restaurant the night before. The garden setting is lovely, and the food was lusciously and creatively prepared. The wood fired grill adds great flavor. The service was professional and efficient. I'll be back!

Enjoyed a nice dinner here. The cocktails were great and the good was yummy. My husband's fish was prepared perfectly and the Mexican corn was awesome. It was a lovely place and the service was very good.

I wish I could say that this place is the best on Conzumel but I can't. The garden is beautiful and very romantic and cozy but the food is unfortunately overpriced and not that tasty. They try to hard with the food and it only comes halfway. We had pulpo, it tasted like a paella and not in a good... More

The Elotes (Corn) on the cob was unbelievable as a starter, we had the wood fired fish, shrimp enchiladas, and blackened chicken pasta....all were very good and topped it off with the warm cake. Great ambiance in the back, with lighting and music, friendly staff/servers with great suggestions! Would go back in a heartbeat!
