This place is a good find. The food is good, a little modified to local taste. The chips and pico are authentic. Not easy to find corn chips in China, let alone Xiamen. Staff is friendly. Recommend.

Food is good Mexican/Western food, at a good price. Drinks are great, with a long list; don't forget to try their specialty - Margarita's. I would often go here just for their Margarita's; try the ginger.

I don't have so much experience in Mexican food but i like the food in this restaurant. The menu is big with many choices for main dish and also for drinks. I like their quesadillas. The service is always very welcome.

Spent an enjoyable evening here but don't expect truly authentic Mexican food. This is Mexican via China after all. Keep that in mind and you will enjoy it more. Extensive menu with reasonable prices. Worth a try if you want a break from Chinese food.

Good for food and drinks. Food is good but not the best if you are die hard fan of Mexican food. I love it since Mexican food is very close to Indian, especially beans and rice. I usually make sure I visit Coyote every time I am in Xiamen.

Food better than you think.. But took forever and had some lost in translation moments, but generally well done. Worth a try.

The reason for this review is to tell the owner of this restaurant (we were told he is currently in USA) what an amazing man he has on his staff - Ozzie. I chose Coyote from tripadvisor, as we haven't been to Xiamen before. Living in China, we are always looking for Mexican food for a treat. The food was... More

Tasty food, nice service and average price. Recommending large portions, food not so hot and spicy as it could look. Enjoy!

This is a trendy western spot for sure. I tried the fish/chips and wouldn't do it again. I took one bite of the fish and returned the entire plate. I selected a burger instead, it came on a tortilla. The beer was cold, American Football / ESPN on the TV, quiet, only a couple other folks. Not sure if I'll... More
