Fun small house like restaurant. Menu has a very good selection. Flavours are pretty good but not like Mexico. My only beef would be 1/2 the menu is prepared by deep frying. Try oven baked or grilled.

First visit to the restaurant, came with friends and none of us were overwhelmed. The food we thought would be more original and presented better but left thinking it was just a glorified Taco Bell. Not sure if we would come back. Don't know what we expected but we all thought it was not as good as some of the... More

Had a birthday dinner here with my wife and son. Food was excellent, as was the staff. Very friendly and food came out very fast. Thought prices were reasonable, and portion size was generous. Would come again.

My wife and I were shopping near by and as always I checked TripAdvisor before to see what unique restaurants were in the area. We found and chose Chile & Agave. And that was a very wise decision. We were there around 130pm for lunch and the place was totally empty. We were the only diners for over an hour... More

Our family enjoyed Chile and Agave. The service was good and the food tasty. Prices seemed a bit high (13.25) for appetizer nachos, but food was well prepared.

This delightfully decorated gem delivers quality food that has been artfully arranged and served with friendly effeciency. Bright colours balanced with bold flavours are a composition of a meal that can be plentiful enough for sharing, or designed for a smaller appetite. I have dined here 3 times and had 3 different meals that were all worth ordering again. Maybe... More

after having travelled to Mexico in the past year or so it was nice to find a restaurant that brought you back to being there, the service was great and the staff is extremely friendly, Well worth checking it out and the food is awesome!
