When you eat out as a couple you expect to eat together. How difficult can it be for the kitchen staff to ensure this happens? Why would you send out one meal leaving the customer wondering when the next will arrive? It wasn't like we'd ordered anything complicated. No apologies offered from the staff, just a simple "It won't be... More

Called in on the off chance, found the staff very accommodating and helpful selecting our food. The food was served in good time and tasted very nice. If you like Mexican food then visit this place.

Putting it nicely, my 8 year old is a picky eater. However, she could not get enough of the fajitas. She has never had fajitas, we ordered them so she could have 'chicken and cheese' and she ate everything on the plate (a month later, I'm still in shock). Overall the food was very good, atmosphere was fun and view... More

The decor looks in disrepair. We were hoping this didn't affect the food quality but we were wrong. The sizzling fajita wasn't sizzling. The kids' chicken looked inedible. For these prices you can get much better food in many other places in Queenstown.

Restaurant is in great location. Staff is really kind and the food is delicious. You don't wait for food much long and would definitely come back. I would reccommend this place.

Really enjoyed our meal here. The restaurant is split into a main restaurant at street level and a bar on an upper-level across the street overlooking the lake. We chose to eat at the bar upstairs for a nice view of the lake. Service was very friendly. Margaritas were good. I enjoyed the Chicken Chimichanga and the steak enchilada. Both... More

Dinner at the Coyote Grill was OK. Not the best Mexican I've ever eaten, but the service was fantastic and super quick.

Went here for dinner on Sunday 1st January. This is not a public holiday but was charged 15% public holiday surcharge. Total rip-off as they would not pay the staff any extra. Food was good but feel ripped off.
