The food was top notch the service was excellent, this is fine dining with a casual but cozy atmosphere. Do not go in a hurry, take time to enjoy the surrounding and wait on the fresh meal being prepared just for you.

Kinta is one of our go to restaurants in Cozumel. Since we were last there, they have added a wood burning oven in the garden area. I love the Kinta and Freska salads, more than enough for 2 people to share. Friends ordered the flat...More
