We had such a great meal here. The service was warm and attentive. The menu was interesting and delicious. Felt very current and modern. Lovely setting, outdoor courtyard. Little hard to find but worth searching for! Highly recommend!

We went twice at this restaurant, each time it was wonderful. Great food, great drink. We try the shrimp mole: a lot of shrimp, good sauce. The tuna with seasame was perfectly cooked (sashami style). The midnight pork ribs was delicious. For appetizers we try the squid and the wood oven bread, everything was good. The backyard it's just wonderflul,... More

We absolutely love Kinta's sister restaurant, Kondesa, so when we found Kinta we were thrilled. Another amazing culinary gem in this Scuba Diver's paradise! Louis was our server and he was attentive yet not invasive. Our food was excellent, we both had the Red Snapper, mine cooked in the massive wood fired oven. Be sure and sit in the back... More

Our party of 4 ate at many restaurants during a week. Kinta was by far the worst. Servers were hard to understand, drinks tasted bad, the food was mediocre. We went there because we had a great experience at the sister restaurant Kondesa. There are many other great places to go- Kinta needs some work.

We have eaten at this place once before while visiting the island and the food and service was great but it seems we never went back.We tried Kinta again and boy we weren't disappointed!!

Once again Kinta was outstanding! We love the expanded outdoor space and being able to watch our meals prepared on the wood oven.

Everyone at the table enjoyed their meal. The shrimp and scallops enchiladas was excellent. The others at the table dinners were excellent as well. The service by Luis and Lucy was very nice. The couple at our table talk about their stupid dog way too much. The desserts were delious.

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
