Cantina Agave is one of our go-to places when we are in Shanghai. Is it the best Mexican food? no. But it's not fair to judge Cantina Agave against a So-Cal burrito stand or a Tex-Mex restaurant on the border of Mexico. Cantina Agave is pretty decent Mexican food available ten thousand Kilometers away from Mexico, and for that we are thankful.
Cantina Agave is in a great location in the French Concession, and it's quite an enjoyable place to have a meal, sit outside, and people watch when the weather is nice.
The burritos are good, the nachos are good, and the salsa is decent. The service is at times slow, with several waitstaff at times milling around the front door area, oblivious to the waves and shouts of the patrons within.
