Definitely a little hard to find as it is a small little place on the second floor with not really good signage. It's probably one of those places you happen upon when looking for someplace else. Some other tourists we met recommended it, so we tried to find it. None of the local nearby shops even seemed to know where... More

The ambience is wonderful; a small second floor balcony overlooking a colourful street. The service is first rate; the servers are friendly, informative and will address you in English or Spanish as you choose. The food selection and quality is first rate; the prices are moderate. Great choice

This second floor restaurant overlooks a busy one-way street in the heart of the tourist section of downtown Zihua. Lionel, the owner, presides over one of the best restaurants in the city. The decor and ambiance.are first rate, the mixed drinks are exquisite and everything on the menu is first rate. And it all comes at a an amazingly reasonable... More

The food & service is excellent, and the wine list is better than most in Zihuatanejo (includes a nice variety of Mexican wines). The Spaghetti / Chicken with Poblano Sauce is great--wish we could get it in Vancouver!

Agave is a recent addition to the restaurant scene in downtown Zihua and well worth a visit. The chef produced some creative twists on classic dishes that were seriously good.

upstairs restaurant in downtown Zihua. The owner takes pride in his food and wine selections and his service. The ambiance is just right. The service can be fast or slow depending on the customers wishes. This is one of the places in Zihua not to miss

The restaurant is located on the second floor above a street active with pedestrians. This provides nice views from the upper level location and at the same time a sense of privacy. White tablecloths, beautiful art on the wall, and tasteful decorating add to the upscale feel of the establishment. The menu offered some traditional Mexican dishes along with others... More

This was our second time we have visited this fine eating establishment. Second floor, crisp white table cloths, finely decorated with a street view and breeze. We tried the tortilla soup - fantastic with richness and flavour. Shrimp taco appetizer - very good. Chile Relleno - best we have had in Mexico, and a chicken breast glazed in a unique... More

We ate at a lot of restaurants in Zih for our 10 day stay, this was highly recommended to us. It was fine, no complaints, but for what we spent here, I would continue to try other places, then return a 2nd time.
