We have been to Cozumel 4 Thanksgiving now. We know several very good restaurants. Kinta has always been the best meal and for the price, it is the best value.

A fellow traveler recommended Kinta for a much-needed off-resort dinner. So glad we tried it as the ambiance and food was excellent. The Wood Fired Oven (the initials appear on the menu!) Catch of the Day was wonderful with roasted Brussels sprouts and cherry tomatoes....More

We had been staying at a dive resort for a week and got tired of the buffet. This restaurant was a wonderful escape with creative and imaginative food. We had all the side dishes along with the lobster lasagna and the vegetarian offering. Highly recommended.

The ribs and fish of the day were excellent. As with most restaurants on the island the service leaves something to be desired. Did not come back to refill drinks

We tried cuatro tacos and my group didn't like it, however, we loved Kinta and dined their several times. Maybe the prices are not added as they seem to be a bit on the pricey side compared to the other Mexican restaurants... More
