Description: 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.

We weren't expecting haute cuisine, but came here in the recommendation of expats and boy were we disappointed. Ok the food is tex-mex, not Mexican, but it was terrible. How difficult is it to make tex-mex??! Barely edible in this case. Even the nachos were poor. Mediocre service, well what else to expect in Wan chai. Thank god for the... More

I went to Agave in Wanchai and LKF. LKF is more like a bar with some bar food whereas Wanchai had more selection of food. I like this place. Good selection of tequilla anf teq base cocktails and food is great. Must try beef steak machos (not a typo), molcajetes (not sure if I spelled ot correctly), prawn fajitas. Only... More

Not difficult to find a seat without reservation on Friday night if you don't mind sitting at bar table. Buy one get one free during Happy Hour. But staff there not interested in giving you the second drink. You have to chase again and again. But the bill came very quick. Tequila and nacho tasted good with fair price.

Went for lunch with a group of 6 after passing a few enjoyable evenings here over the years. The set lunch was a reasonable price: soup or chicken tostada followed by pork chop, chicken leg or a fish fillet served with a choice of Mexican rice or steamed rice and steamed vegetables or refried beans, with tea or coffee for...

This bar is located in quite a lively district of Wan Chai, just down the road from the MTR station. The bar is a tequila bar, and has a lot of varieties stored - the portions are quite generous. Didn't try the food myself, although on the grapevine heard that it was so-so. Definitely a good place to go for... More

I went there twice and ordered burritos. You get two burritos, covered in crème fraîche and guacamole bust almost no cheese. Inside, you have some spicy meat but not much else. That's about 180HKD. Quantity and quality-wise I was disappointed after hearing good things about the restaurant from friends. I have not had any problem with service going there. The... More

Nice restaurant and easy dining experience. Not the biggest selection of mexican food but the old favourites are there. The pitcher of margaritas were very nice. Definatley worth a visit for an inexpensive dinner. We were a crowd of 6 with two pitchers of margarita worked out about £35.0 each !

Popped into Agave yesterday for the set lunch, which, like at other restos in HK, offer great value (compared with regular menu). Soup or salad, main, coffee or tea around $60. My friend opted for zucchini soup and chili con carne. I ordered the salad and chivichanga (never saw it spelled that way, but apparently it's legit). The most popular... More
