Agave offers a menu showcasing regional specialties and creative dishes from Guadalajara, Mexico’s second most populated city, as well as Jalisco. Ingredients used such as various chilies, cactus and fresh green tomatillos are imported from Mexico, whilst our tortillas are handmade on site. Guests can try our wide selection of tequilas or savor our well-known margaritas at the long bar. The ambience is authentically Mexican as vivid oranges and reds exhibit the unique architectural style of Luis Barragán, one of the most influential Mexican architects of the 20th Century.

It was Cinco de Mayo and I needed some tequilla. They have a great supply here, but the food was only so so. Not spicy enough, not crispy enough, just not enough to stand out. Ambience great - but you expect that on the day.

Food was really tasty and especially big portions. Window seats are great for people watching. They only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is down to the price, quite expensive for what it is.

Amazing food, great ambience, good service, friendly staff. Located on the wan chai strip this is one of the few places you can get a wholesome non Chinese meal. We had the nachos with ground chorizo, some fajitas and a pork dish and each one was just perfect. The right amount of spice and seasoning it was a delightful experience.... More

This bar used to be one of the best Mexican bars in town. Unfortunately due to poor service, mediocre food and substandard drinks many other Mexican bars have now surpassed Agave. This bar is now just one of many Mexican bars charging you lots of money for the privilege of eating and drinking ordinary food, whilst being served very slowly!

The atmosphere and decor makes this place awesome to go to. The food was good, the vegetarian burritos were yum. The highlight of this restaurant are the 2-4-1 Margaritas. I recommend the fruit margaritas , especially the strawberry. :-)

Restaurant is located in the middle of night clubs and bars street in Wanchai area. Food are very delicious and portions are quite big. I ordered mixed burrito and chicken salad (little bit chili). I liked it very much. It's good place to have nice Mexican food.

I passed by and decided to stop for a very late lunch. The Magarita was quite okay but the Chicken Fajitas were only average and the service seemed to be not really motivated.

Being big Mexican fans my partner and I were keen to see what Agave was like and it didn't disappoint. Great range of food, lovely staff and decent value. Would recommend to anyone wanting a Mexican hit in HK. Ideal location for bar scene too.

Agave is a Tex-Mex bar and restaurant on Lockhart Road in Wan Chai that we visit from time to time for nachos, which they have done well in recent years. Made a recent stop here prior to attending a performance at the nearby Hong Kong Academy of Performances Arts (HKAPA), food was quite marginal this time around. We ordered the... More

Staying in Wan Chai / Causeway Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centers of Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and restaurants, both areas are bustling with people – tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart. Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye – find boutique stores in the above ground floors of buildings and wander into side streets to find interesting restaurants and shops tucked away from the main roads. Wan Chai especially has experienced a modern revival in recent times, with an influx of trendy restaurants and bars around the Star Street area. In addition, both areas contain many of Hong Kong’s iconic tourist attractions worthy of your visit.
