Good Mexican food in Xiamen

Good atmosphere and excellent Mexican food for being in China. I would recommend the fajitas and nachos. The prices are also very reasonable.

After seeing the reviews online (and having a night on my own), I gave Coyote Cafe and Cantina a shot. The menu is typical of any chain Tex-Mex joint in the US, and has a good selection. The service is quite attentive. I opted for the chips and salsa, the fajitas, and the ginger margarita. The chips were quite fresh,... More

Coyote is a Mexican restaurant in the Siming district near Yundang Road ( coffee street ). This is a very nice area in Xiamen full of western style restaurants and coffee bars. We had nachos with beans and jalapeños as appetizer. My colleagues ordered the chicken fajitas and I had a spicy burrito. Loved the food. Of course they have... More

I think it would take a particularly bad chef to get Mexican wrong. This is in no way to under rate this fine cuisine with its regional nuances, but Coyote is not about nuances! Coyote is about Nacho, Taco's, re-fried beans and lots of it! It is all good but none of it is great! Coyote moved location a year... More

I stopped with a group of 5 for a business dinner. Service is typical spotty China service where your drinks go empty unles you ask for refills. Drinks are weak and small but flavor is good. As for the food I and my wife prefer true Mexican Taqueria food where little English is spoken. Chain style Mexican has no appeal... More

Coyote does Fantastic Mexican food. The Daringo steak is a favorite. I'm a regular when I'm in Xiamen. It's hard to beat. Easy to find and in a good location

We've been eating at Coyote Cafe for years now. This place is a great find if you crave Mexican food like we do when we're away from home. We almost always stop by for either lunch or dinner or both when ever we're in Xiamen. Try their margaritas, they're probably the best you're going to find in southern China.
