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

Usually I don't rate restaurants but this time this restaurant deserves it. Had a steak fajita and what to say? It was the best I've ever had. Not 100% Mexican - but a great taste. (better than the ones I had in Europe , the US or even in Mexico). Margaritas are also how they should be. Not the cheapest... More

If you want a break from the local Chinese food this is a good western style place. If you did not know you were in Xiamen you would think you were at any other Mexican restaurant in the USA. The food was good. I had the fajitas and they were tasty. The margaritas are excellent. The staff is attentive. They... More

This joint is owned by a local Chinese lady who is married to a foreign man. Her brother pretty much runs the place and you can see him on his bicycle or doing something sporty when there are not too many guests in the house. The preserved carrots they served as an FOC starter is yummy and I am a... More

I stopped here for dinner and was not disappointed. The staff was very friendly, the menu was well composed with plenty of temptations, and the drinks were general tried and tested crowdpleasers. I had prawn taco and it was simply delicious.
