This was our second time we have visited this fine eating establishment. Second floor, crisp white table cloths, finely decorated with a street view and breeze. We tried the tortilla soup - fantastic with richness and flavour. Shrimp taco appetizer - very good. Chile Relleno - best we have had in Mexico, and a chicken breast glazed in a unique red sauce that will make you want to come back for more. For dessert a stunning banana flambé.
Hat's off to the owner Lionel for his menu selection and setting very high standards. Excellent presentation, five star for flavour, wonderful service and very modest prices. You won't be disappointed. Bon appetit.

We ate at a lot of restaurants in Zih for our 10 day stay, this was highly recommended to us.
It was fine, no complaints, but for what we spent here, I would continue to try other places, then return a 2nd time.

"Is this one of the best meals...?" I've eaten in some of the fine restaurants in France, London, Hong Kong, (blah, blah...) that set an impossible standard. But was it outstanding? YES. As others have said, Lionel is a great owner and will help and make adaptations to the menu if you want. The sangria is the best I've had in Mexico.

We consistently have extremely good meals here. Having returned to Zihua again this year we have had two very memorable and excellent meals here and in my opinion it is one of the best restaurants in Zihua.

For our first meal we shared a salad and then had prawns cooked in a tequilla sauce and the garlic octapus. And we returned for Valentines night and shared the carpaccio of octapus followed by the prawns stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon with a wonderful sauce and also the prawns in jamaica sauce. Our desert was a most delicious banana flambe with a twist - absolutely mouthwateringly delicious. Agave also has an excellent white Mexican wine, which goes well with their food.

Lionel and his staff are also very helpful and professional. Lionel particularly has a passion for the food he serves and will help you choose from the menu if you need anything explaining.

Don't miss this restaurant - I highly recommend it.
