“Average”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

Nice surroundings in the middle of 'Old Town' San Diego. Pretty restaurant. They were busy, but was able to seat us right away at 8pm on a Saturday night. The food was average, I didnt finish my very small taco salad because it got soggy really fast...too bad, because I paid $10 for it. The service was very slow...our waiter was sweet and kept apologising. Theer were 5 of us and we were all talking alot so that is the only reason why the slow service didnt seem to bother us...otherwise it would have seemed like forever that we were actually served our food. After we ate, I headed to the ladies room in which I immediately turned around and decided to wait...the smell was horrible and there was a line. The bathroom was messy, you could tell it hadnt been tended to for a while. Over all not the best experience, will not be going back.

“Good Old Town Mexican”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

I ate dinner at Cafe Coyote in May 2014 with some business friends, and enjoyed the dining experience.

The restaurant is located in Old Town San Diego. It's a large restaurant capable of seating large groups of customers.

The food was good, but nothing special. Portion size was good. Price was reasonable for the area.

Customer service was excellent.

I would eat here again and recommend to my family and friends.

“FISH TACOS”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

There was a considerable line the first night we went to Café Coyote, but they seated us quickly. The service was great and the food awesome. Fish Tacos were amazing.

“EXCELLENT Mexican food in the heart of where San Diego began !”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Excellent food, long wait for the order, enjoy the wait by ordering an appetizer as you are seated and tell them you're in a time crunch and please bring it ASAP. Out door dining after 4PM is delightful as the outdoor dining faces the East. Drinks are great through a bit pricey. Overall the best restarunt in the Historical downtown of Old San Diego. C&H
