Coyote has a nice setting. It is a not quite high end restaurant that could be anywhere in the world. Good location in the Marco Polo area. The food is good but lacks sauces and some Mexican flavors. The portions are not big but expensive. Three of us cost about 700 rmb. Service was friendly and attentive.

Overrated and over priced,good for a change but not a big deal.Service quite approximate.din't try cocktails but the menu seems quite interesting.As a plus they have menu for Chinese and one for foreigners instead of a bilingual one.

went here last night with my girlfriend with our usual pre dinner expectations we've come to hold since coming to china in search of non Chinese cuisine and that's: let's go here and watch them not amaze us on their take & was surprised that it's actually not bad at all! For starters we had the nachos with chicken which... More

Popped in late one evening by chance as a visiting friend knew of it. The food is top drawer and very authentic not to mention very keenly priced. Pineapple Margaritas are a must and service is polite and efficient.

Mexican food in China doesn't get any better than this. I'm a Texan, so I don't deal with bad TexMex. This is good stuff. If your Language skills are limited, don't worry ... Adam will cover you for English. Good man!

Especially on a hot day, the frozen Margaritas are a treat, and a good deal on happy hour! We visited with family and friends on several occasions - and have tried most of the meals - salads, nachos, burritos (vegetarian and meat choices) all very well prepared, served quickly and efficiently. We go here when we need a Tex-Mex fix... More
