If you are in Zihua you must go here for dinner! It's on the second floor so you overlook the street, has nice ambiance and if you have room for dessert, it's delicious! Don't miss this place and Carlos and his brother Leonel are very gracious~

We always have to go to Agave every year. We love the food and ambiance. The service is excellent. The mashed potato stuffed chili rellano is excellent and a favorite. The seafood is always prepared perfectly and the soups and salads are wonderful.

Reservations are recommended but we were lucky to get in twice without. The food is fantastic and beautifully presented. The daughter of the owner loves to practice her English so we enjoyed that.

The first night we tried to go to Agave we couldn't get a table so we went somewhere else. We are thrilled we went back another night and got a table. The restaurant is on the 2nd floor and it's worth getting a table by the railing to overlook the street below. All of our meals were cooked to perfection... More

This restaurant serves beautifully prepared authentic Mexican cuisine using local ingredients. The best choices are the seafood dishes although they also make an excellent chile rellanos. The margaritas are the best in town in my opinion. It is located on the second floor of a building in the heart of the city and it is fun and exciting to observe... More

Our third year in a row to visit Agave did not disappoint. The smell of garlic pulls us in, and the beautiful presentation and little touches such as homemade flavoured butter keep us coming back. Delicious seafood and banana flambé with mescal were highlights. A small intimate room adds to the "special" feel.

Servers were attentive and spoke English well. Our meals were all terrific -... More

Staff and place were fine though if you can't do stairs don't go. There were 3 of us and let's just say they need to really be honest with themselves about cooking and presenting dishes that are not traditional Mexican. You can't just get it half right.
