We went to several of Kinoki's movies during our stay in San Cris. Theater fine, though seats small for overweight people like us. They also have small theaters with huge recliner chairs that one can rent for a higher price and select the movie to be seen. We never ate at Kinoki because at night it is very loud, usually...

Kinoki has a huge notebook of international films to choose from. One can rent the film of your choice and either the deluxe seat viewing room (200 pesos pesos​) or the standard theater seat vieqing roomm (200 pesos). What a deal! The hard part is selecting one film from the hundreds of films available, including many documentaries on relevant local... More

I went late on Thursday (11:15 pm). Me and my boyfriend asked for pasta. The place was very nice and it seems it's perfect for tea and tisanas, films, but the pasta we ate wasn't good (they served it too raw, and it was tough). Maybe it was too late to go on Thursday and they were in a hurry... More

I love Kinoki, the food is good and the film selection is excellent. They're also a great resource for the local film community.

This is a restaurant with excellent food, music and ambient. A little away from the flow of people but close enough to continue your visit to SanCris in a few steps. The coffee is from the best stores in SanCris and if you are fond on cultural-alternative films, you can watch them also in small theater rooms or bigger groups... More

I suppose I'm a bit of a tea snob... I tried 2 puerhs and liked the natural the best, but it wasnt as strong or interesting as I was hoping for. The magico tasted like vanilla rooibos, not cardamom. It's a casual swanky place great to hang out for a while and people watch and have some tea!

Kinoki runs both movies of its own twice an evening, or you can rent one of the two viewing rooms and choose a movie of your own from their catalog of so many movies who can count. There are classics from different countries; there are documentaries; there are an endless variety of films from which to choose. We lucked onto... More

Nice laid back place for drinking wine and watching the streets of San Cris from the balcony. They show movies, which you can pick from a catalogue of indie/local productions.

We've been here before and love this little place. It's our go-to place for our vegetarian friends for their fantastic stuffed potatoes. They are a meal in themselves and done to perfection. My favorite, having tried a number of them, is the Zapata with cream, corn and rajas (sliced fried poblano chiles).
