Came here tonight with friends and family. Sam or host was very attentive and helpful. Food was amazing, great taste and flavors. Two of our group don't do well with spice and there original meal had to much flavor for them. Sam was very helpful in organising alternate meals for them. Highly recommend this place and would come again.

We were just blown away by how good this Mexican food was...in New Zealand! Having od'd on New Zealand fare for nearly 2 weeks, we were ready for a culinary change for lunch. We stumbled across Coyote Grill walking around Queenstown and gave it a try...and so glad we did. Food was authentic but with a Kiwi flavor twist.

We previously had Chuy's of the US as our favorite, but the chicken fajitas were fantastic (well seasoned and quality meat unlike the lower-quality chicken found in most US fajitas) and my vegetarian wife had Coyote Grill as her favorite and just as we did with Bombay Palace for me we went back twice for her vegetarian quesadilla (Grilled garlic,...

I had the fajitas. I don't know what sauce the meat was cooked in, but it tasted really bad. The wine was terrible. They have no wifi. Service wasn't friendly. Food is insanely overpriced for the quality. Go to Caribe Kitchen instead!!!!!

Apparently the kitchen thinks everything is improved by drowning it in bland cheese. Not true. Anyone who has raved about this place being "authentic" has never been to Mexico, Texas, or California. This is about as authentic as my socks! Ordered a pair of enchiladas. They came smothered in cheese to the point where I couldn't tell the chicken from... More

During a recent trip to Queenstown we had a mexican meal sitting upstairs at the windows overlooking the park and harbour. There was a good range of menu items available, I had the Fajita's and my wife had the Taco's both meals were great. The view from the top section is great and creates a good atmosphere to enjoy your... More
