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.

"Is this one of the best meals...?" I've eaten in some of the fine restaurants in France, London, Hong Kong, (blah, blah...) that set an impossible standard. But was it outstanding? YES. As others have said, Lionel is a great owner and will help and make adaptations to the menu if you want. The sangria is the best I've had... More

We consistently have extremely good meals here. Having returned to Zihua again this year we have had two very memorable and excellent meals here and in my opinion it is one of the best restaurants in Zihua. For our first meal we shared a salad and then had prawns cooked in a tequilla sauce and the garlic octapus. And we... More
