Good food, nice atmosphere

My husband and I wandered in here on a rainy Saturday night. There weren't too many people, most likely because of the rain. We found a table quickly and began to enjoy the lovely patio. Service was slightly on the slow side but fit the casual nature of the restaurant. We enjoyed the Steak Fajitas... read more

I was looking for a place to eat to avoid cooking dinner. I like their patio for outside dinning and Mexican sounded good. So Agave Maria was my choice. I went in knowing that the food has always been hit and miss since the restaurant changed hands. Last night was a miss. I ordered the Queso Fundido cheese dip appetizer.... More

A lovely place for lunch or dinner, especially on the pretty umbrella covered patio. Very good & fresh chips & salsa, and a very nice selection of tequilas. The Chili Verde that I had was delicious, served in a bowl with rice & beans on the plate and tortillas on the side. Really savory and tender. Everyone seemed to enjoy... More

We sat in the patio, which was nicely arranged. We did not enjoy the food, however. It is definitely not authentic mexican food. I was very disappointed in the asada salad, nothing like the description on the menu, and it was not worth $13.95. My husband was not impressed with his chile verde burrito. Talking to some of the locals,... More

Out on a Saturday day trip with some friends, our return route took us through the center of Ojai. On a bathroom stop, we ask some locals for a good Mexican restaurant and this one came highly recommended. It was mostly back up by Trip Advisor reviews While there was nothing wrong with the food, it was neither outstandingly delicious,... More

homemade salsa, homemade chips, wide variety of designer Margaritas. If you can stand the wait/crowds you are in for a treat.

Relaxed casual atmosphere with lots of ambient outdoor patio seating this is a lovely place to get a good reasonable priced mexican meal in Ojai. The food is great, hearty sized portions, with ample dressings. The fajitas, which I don't normally order were tasty and satisfying, the marinade made things very interesting. The fish tacos were fresh and came with... More

The duck quesadilla and the margaritas were very good. I ate at the bar and the service was outstanding. This is a very good causal restaurant.

The atmosphere seemed nice and there were a lot of people in the place, so we took that as a good sign. Unfortunately, the items we ordered, tortilla chicken soup and tacos, were pretty bland and flavorless. They were adequate but nothing to recommend. In a town with more than one Mexican restaurant, it seems you could find a better... More

Food was good, not impressed at all by my woman server. Because of the service, I did not go back a few weeks later.I expect when seated to be given a menu. Also ut should not take 15 minutes to return with my drink. Which by the way was so so. Dinner was very good. I was alone and my... More
