Had the cochinita pibil, it was excellent with habanero sauce. Michelada wasnt the classic with clamato but it was still excellent. Music selection was very adequate (mexican-latin). Service was okay, could be better though.

Great bar service here, makes all drinks and the chicken fajitas are excellent, as well as the nachos. Highly recommended if your looking for western type food while in Hong Kong and in the Wan Chai district

We only ordered the Tortilla Soup and Steak Nachos and wow, what a meal! I'm from California and grew up with some amazing nachos, but this restaurant sure gives ours a run for its money! No a/c though when I went, so if it's a hot night, you might want to order "mild" salsa.

We decided to take my mother out to dinner while on vacation here. Since she is from Southern California we figured why not a home town norm for her... Mexican. Took a few minuets to get seated which was fine then it took 10 minuets to have a waitress stop by for drink orders. As the time passed and our... More

I regularly call at Agave when in Hong Kong. The fajitas are outstanding but the can vary a little depending on which chef is working. As one might expect, Agave has a good selection of Tequilas and margaritas and Mexican beers are a favourite. Happy hour is also good for 2 for 1 deals. Devore is traditional Mexican and service...

Good food but noisy rather than great ambience! Service good, nacho starter excellent. My beef fajitas were a bit stringy. Overall a bit lacklustre.

Pretty poor Mexican in Wanchai, seems to be targeting Tequila drinkers more so than diners. Found the food quite bland and then spent most of the rest of the evening on the toilet with indigestion. Will not be returning.

I wasn't expecting to come across such fresh, delicious Mexican in Hong Kong but Agave is certainly that. We shared nachos and a fish dish (simmered in a tomato and green olive sauce) and both meals were really fresh and made with high quality ingredients. The margaritas were also excellent (and the staff able to advise on the numerous tequila... More

This is a regular stop for me. Used to be a great place to sit, drink and people watch. Don't know if under new mgmt or what, but a bit of a wreck now. They only have one AC unit working, so now the Windows (where all the great people watching took place) are firmly closed. They said they can't... More

We were here for dinner, seated right away. Service was hospitable however ambience was a bit on the tacky side. Dimly lit and cheesy fit out. GUACAMOLE: We were starving when sat down so inhaled this. Plenty of chips (couldn't finish them) fresh guac a little bland needed more lime/lemon. PRAWN CEVICHE: Rubbery texture, do not order. They offer a... More

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.

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.
