Nice upper level dining with pleasant view. Very good tortilla soup, great chicken soup, surprisingly good pasta dishes, experienced wait staff. Very nice little restaurant.

We loved this restaurant and will definitely love to return. Our host was extremely charming and paid a great deal of attention to create a lovely dining experience with beautiful cuisine and top notch service. We had many beautiful dining evenings but El Agave was my favourite!
I also really enjoyed the ambience of second floor dining. Very quaint with lots of character!
Do not miss the Spanish coffee drinks.. Mucho Bueno!!!

Quaint friendly with excellent service! The second floor seating is so refreshing it makes you feel like you are in Europe! We started with a tomato salad then my husband had the lobster which was a generous serving done perfectly. I had the bacon wrapped shrimp! The food was excellent. We seldom visit a restaurant twice however that evening we made a reservation for our last nigh in Zihuatenjo. Don't miss this restaurant when in Zihua!

We go to El Agave every year and returned twice this year. We wish we had gone more often because there are a lot of great choices and the quality of the food is so good. We tried the octopus carpaccio because we had never encountered it before - we will definitely have it again, it was delicious. My husband had the octopus ajillo and it was SO yummy. I had the fish filet ajillo one night (only 120 pesos - such a deal) and the pasta with grilled chicken and poblano pepper sauce. ALL our food was delicious and nicely presented. Compared to the fish and most things we had at restaurants on La Ropa, the food at Agave is such a great value. Also, the wine selection is small but very good and we think the price is right too - under 300 pesos per bottle.
