For a well prepared meal in a garden setting or inside, this is the place to go. Good food! Generous helpings. Try their salads or anything else for that matter.

During our stay in Graaf Reinett we had both lunch and dinner at Agave and what a nice surprise it was! Excellent food made by chef André van Rensburg, a joy for the eye and a joy for the tastebuds. The garden as well as the dining room have a kind of understated French Bistro style which appealed very much to us. The service is really friendly and the housewine is excellent, we can not fault this restaurant in any way.

Hot bread rolls, very nice food, well prepared and nicely served. The wine was to warm and the proposal of putting ice into it kills my philosophy about wine. Its like some people drink wine and coke or whiskey with water. The place is very nice and woth a visit. The prices are on the very higher side and overprized. They have to think that people might come back a second time or more times and concentrate on returning customers and not only once off customers.

Agave provides a day-time and evening menu. We have tried both. The daytime menu is full and generally predictable with some exciting alternatives; the evening menu has more adventuresome choices. Overall, daytime comfort meets excellent Karoo gourmet.

Agave is fine dining at its best - with a karoo twist, white linen, low lights, soft voices, vast restored and tastefully appointed dining room - and then when you think your wallet must be in line for a good hiding and the food lavish but disappointing comes a surprise and delight - a compact three course menu, with vegetarian option nogal, beautifully presented on vast white platterses with very reasonable (and good) wines available by the glass. Try the fresh Karoo lamb kidneys on roasted with a fruity jus; ample mains must be lamb - veal chops on mushrooom risotto; also the lamb neck on couscous and honey base; creme brulee to top it off. Price for a two course meal for two, with couple of glasses of wine R380. Consider the money well sepnt - splendid evening to be savoured.
