Wonderful twist on classic Mexican food. Great selection of tequilas and wonderful servers. Try the turkey jalapeno enchiladas, carne asada or the salmon and spinach enchiladas.

A change from the normal fare with my Chinese colleagues - the day before they asked for a McDonalds to compare with those in China - the US won by a large margin. This night they asked for Mexican - Trip Advisor found me the Coyote Cantina - very close to our hotel. They loved the nachos carnitas - liked... More

Had a very nice Saturday night dinner here with my companion. Have eaten here many times and it is always consistently good so time to acknowledge Coyote Cantina with a review for their ongoing efforts. Very large portions served on platter sized dishes. Creative Mexican and Southwestern dishes not normally found in a Mexican restaurant. Kudos to the chef. Casual... More

I love this place. The margaritas are amazing and strong. The food is so good! Sweet Corn Ravioli, and Sonora Ravioli are to die for!

Don’t ignore this restaurant due to its strip mall location. Inside you’ll find a vibrant, sophisticated décor and great margaritas. You won’t find great New Mexico or Colorado style burrito, but if you stick with the specialties you’ll have tasty food in a whimsically decorated restaurant close to Redondo Beach. If there are less adventuresome eaters in your party the... More

My wife and I love Mexican style food, and this restaurant does not disappoint. It has a unique take on the style. The service is always amazing, and the food leaves you wanting to come back and try something new on the menu, but I seem stuck on some favorites, such as the Turkey Jalapeno Enchiladas...simply incredible.

If you would like something a little different and still have an amazing margarita..... this is the place. It is a small place and mostly tables not booths... not the place if you want romantic. Everyone who works there is friendly... I have tried at least six different items from the menu, all have been great.

We started with a great long margarita and some draft beer (Fat Tire), and then brie quesadillas with mango salsa. You can't go wrong with tortillas and cheese, and the mango salsa was tasty but the combination didn't quite work. Guacamole was only okay, and a slightly stingy portion. We then had enchiladas and the tostada salad, which were good... More

Amazing food and great choice on the menu. Lovely and lively atmosphere. Very very friendly staff. Especially the Irish owner. Probably the best meal we have had in the states. The kids loved it too.
