Best Mexican Food in Xiamen

It's a bit pricey for a restaurant in Xiamen and by foreign standards, it's nothing special per-say. Nevertheless, if you are looking for great Mexican food in Xiamen (or China in general), drop by here.

Went for dinner as it's near our hotel and we liked it! Service is surprisingly good and the food was so yummy! It does take a while to get your food but it's definitely worth the wait.

This is a great Mexican by Chinese standards (its Chinese operated). The food is verging on authentic and very tasty nonetheless. I'm not local and just on a business trip from Shanghai, but it seems this place is home to quite a significant American community judging by the other tables. They do a decent draught lager and its spicy, but... More

Thank for your review. I only want to make a correction to your statement about being Chinese ownership, as my wife and I own this restaurant and I am an American citizen having lived in Xiamen for 13 years. However the past few years we have been spending more time back in the states and during our absence my wife... More

Great mexican food and atmosphere. Margareta's are good and you can also get a good burger here. I like to go for a walk afterward along the lake, so beautiful.

It's hard to find good Mexican food, especially being abroad in China and when you've lived in San Francisco your whole life. This place was pretty good. Didn't have the same burrito we were looking for but still very good! Friendly staff and great food, what more could you ask for!

Had a fantastic dinner here. Nachos, enchiladas, burritos... Certainly the best Mexican food I've had in China. The staff were wonderful, very friendly, efficient, took the time to explain the menu, offered recommendations. Really this meal couldn't have been any better....Except for price: food prices are very fair and reasonable, cocktail prices are not. (my only complaint!) 60 kuai margaritas,... More

The restaurant itself makes you feel that you are not in Xiamen (which is nice). The menu (one in chinese, one in English) offers a good choice of Mexican and other western food! The point which didn't really satisfied me was the efficiency of the waiters and the kitchen! The restaurant wasn't really busy for lunch but still we had... More

I used to rave about Coyote when they were in their old location. Since moving something has gone adrift. We used to drink rather a lot of their margaritas but of late these have definitely become like alcohol-free zones. Tasteless ghosts of their former selves. Then just to compound matters, last week we arrived before our guests and ordered drinks... More

Being from Southern California I crave good Mexican food. It's hard to find, in Asia! This is one of the better places I have tried, though, I have to admit, I only ate there once. It could have been more spicy but there was some kick and the ingredients were pretty fresh. I wonder if their guacamole is any good... More

I started going to Coyote when they first opened and was pleased when they moved to this new location. Food has always been good and the service as well. One of my regular places I like to go when working in Xiamen.
