Afternoon drinks Tasty coconut shrimp!

This place was a quiet little Mexican resterant with highly attentive staff and a HUGE plates of coconut shrimp! The patio is cleanly kept and very comfortable for an afternoon visit with friends. Beyond the place being rather small and not open very late the foods quality speaks for itself. The... read more

It was a disappointing experience. The food was below average. Salsa and guacamole were not fresh.... Not a place I would recommend for Mexican food. Nothing we ordered was tasty.

We discovered Chile and Agave when overheard someone talking about it. Now my husband and I frequent there as do my three sisters and their families. Great drinks, staff and food. Went for Cinco da Mayo they had awesome band right from Mexico. I love Mexican food but have a cilantro allergy, they have no problem accommodating me and have... More

We got married May 30th in Niagara-on-the-Lake, and because we love Chile and Agave so much, we had them cater our rehearsal dinner for 25 people. They did an absolutely amazing job: if you are looking for a different sort of catering for an event, I would definitely suggest it. We had so many compliments, and people had such a... More

If your really into Mexican food and dining experience this is the place to be. Food was cooked to excellence and friends and I enjoyed the Latino atmosphere and decor. It did not disappoint and we'll return soon!

This was my first experience at a Mexican restaurant. The atmosphere was great and I liked the décor. The waitresses were very nice. It was busy so we had a bit of a wait. She served us guacamole and it was fresh and excellent, however I was not impressed with other dishes; found some had a strange oily taste &... More

My husband and I went for dinner one night as the restaurant had been recommended. The food was average. Most disappointing was the guacamole. It was not fresh at all and looked like what I buy at Costco.

Ojed, Gerente at Chile & Agave, responded to this review

We are sorry to hear this. Our guacmole appetizer is made fresh at the table during our dinner service , the kitchen makes the sides of guacamole roughly three or more times per day. We use a simple receipe with the freshest ingredients, no powders or fillers. Although when our supplier is short we do get whole avacados from costco.... More

We had eaten here before and enjoyed the meal so we decided to take our daughter and son-in-law. We went for lunch so it was not overly busy and service was efficient and pleasant. We shared the Chile and Agave Mix from the appetizer menu as it was a sampler and gave us the opportunity to try different menu items.... More
