The Margaritas were delicious!! Happy Hour gets packed and seating is very limited. There are tables outside, but only half are able to accommodate alcohol. Waitstaff was very friendly and the place is tastefully festive!

Nestled in what seems like a small restaurant this place has excellent cuisine and is only a short block away from ElPaseo the main shopping street in Palm Desert - the salmon is delicious as are the nachos and Margaritas - definitely worth a try-

Chose Fresh Agave for dinner tonight and we're SO glad we did! It was, by far, the best Mexican restaurant we've tried in the last two years when vacationing here. I had the fajita burrito and it was outstanding. It was packed full of chicken and veggies and the chicken was char-grilled with the perfect amount of smokiness. My husband... More

Great food. First Mexican restaurant that I have been able to eat at without burning my mouth. No spicy food for me. I had the shrimp enchiladas with the sauce on the side just in case, but I was able to put it on. The strawberry margaritas was great too. Many families here and the California fire department even showed... More

Wow! We were blown away by this little restaurant! We were not sure what to expect, but when we arrived it looked like an authentic little Mexican cantina we were use to while travelling to Mexico. They served fresh chips with the most amazing guacamole that is mixed right at the table. I had the mole chicken and it was... More

Had dinner with our parents, who are locals, as they indicated this was their favorite Mexican food restaurant. Well, it did not disappoint. Great food, specifically the fresh table side prepared guacamole and the fajita salad! Great service too! Will definitely go back!

Many of the restaurants in the area are closed in July and don't open until September - thank goodness, otherwise we would have missed this gem! Busy restaurant with good service. If you are gluten free, and there at lunch, try the Three Jimadores! I thought that the beef fajita was the best of the three. (My mouth is still... More

Fresh Agave have a range of mexican cuisine reflecting that some staff came from the legendary Armandos on el Paseo. Unlike Armandos Fresh Agave does not have the patio overlooking el Paseo. They are on Highway 11 so the patio is better for cars and a bit loud. The food is decent and costs and in line.

Found this restaurant to be just the like one just down the street called Armandos. It was packed, claustrophobic, too small for the amount of people dining. Food was good.
