Mexican
Classic Mexican with an eclectic downtown St. John's feel. A high energy room with an overriding Dia de Muertos theme. Customer focussed staff and the largest tequila selection in Atlantic Canada with a large variety of original Margaritas. Moose Taquitos are a must!

Great food! Great drinks! Normally order tacos but decided to branch out and get something different this time and I was not disappointed. Would order the enchiladas again. Street corn needed more cheese. Was lacking compared to previous times I’ve gotten it. Otherwise it was great.

The food & the service was real good. Unfortunately, the sound and echo noise from the other tables was excessive to the point that we had problems hearing and speaking to each other at our table. There must be some way to dampen the sound effects with insulation etc. You should try and find an engineering/sound company who can do a survey and suggest a solution.

The dorotos are life changing. The cod tacos are devine. They were out of street corn which is understandable because they're so busy- just gives us a reason to go back again! The blueberry pom margaritas are our fav though would love to see bar service be a bit quicker. Overall excellent experience and always recommend this place to friends.

Food was delicious....but service not so great. We waited over 30 mins to get bill and ended up having to go to the bar to find our server and pay it.

Excellent food and ambience. Service was great as well, however a touch more attention to water refills would have been the last touch to bump my review up to a full 5 stars. My only tiny complaint for our experience. Overall it was an excellent evening!

Food was excellent with the exception of the rice which was gummy and bland. Otherwise, the moose taquitos were outstanding, the guacamole was wonderful and the enchiladas and tacos were so good. Highly recommend it.

Four of us went out for a girls night and had a great time! Booths are super spacious and it wasn’t too crowded because we went early in the evening at 6. Our server was great and kept checking in to see if there was anything we wanted and kept bringing us extra tortilla chips. He recommended what tequila to order as well. We all had 2-3 drinks, a meal, and split dessert and app between us. It wasn’t too loud, just other people out for a good time. Really enjoyable experience! We will be back to try out the brunch sometime soon

If you are looking for authentic Mexican food at a very reasonable price than Cojones is the place for you. our table of four had a great meal with excellent service. The margaritas are awesome. Large selection of Tequila brands. Well worth a visit. Try the duck nachos, really yummy!

During date night my wife and I decided to try Cojones and found that our decision was not a regret. From the moment we walked in to the moment we left every minute was enjoyed. We loved our meals and our drink and can guarantee we will be heading back on the future.

I can't understand how this place stays open. The food was unimaginative, not well prepared. Service was slow and poor overall. Server was sweet and charming, but too busy. Mexican cuisine, tradionitional and modern, has so much to offer, such diversity! How anyone could come up with this menu is baffling. Drinks were solid.

Awesome dinner! Best Mexican We have eaten in 30+ years of doing so. Lots of flavour which and nothing was defused under a mound of cheese and sour cream which seems to be often the case elsewhere.

The service was fast and our waiter was super knowledgeable about all the menu items! The moose taquitos are amazing!! And the nachos are HUGE. All in all a very yummy (but also very salty) dining experience. Would recommend to anyone for looking for a Mexican meal but be weary if you’re not into salty dishes.
