“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

Our host at the villa we are staying at recommended Agave as the number one restaurant to dine at. She was right! Leo, the owner and waiter, ensured that everything we put between our lips was perfection. He made the sauces and over sees all of the cooking. He also buys all of the food for the day in the morning from the local fishers and market. I had the chicken with red mole sauce, delicious! and my date had the shrimp wrapped in a delicate swath of bacon with a green (not spicy) chilli sauce. Picante! We plan to go back.

We recommend that you seek out this restaurant that is called Agave, not El Agave.

“Best food in Zihua!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

Agave re-opened tonight...the ONLY negative is that this is our last night for this stay in Zihua.
The food here is fresh, inventive and very reasonably priced. Agave is a little hard to find but very much worth the effort.

“Great food and value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

I actually found El Agave after searching Trip Advisor. It is located on the second floor of a downtown building. The entrance was a little hard to find, but very much worth it. Four of us dined there and had various fresh seafood and beef entrees. All of our entrees were very flavorful. The atmosphere was nice and serene. The service was very good and we felt it was an excellent value. We definately will return this fall
