    The food is delicious here. The fish tacos and shrimp tacos are so tasty. We tried the vegan churros and they were a great dessert choice. The servers are very friendly. We will definitely go back.

    The guacamole was so good the first time I was there but this time it was terrible, tasted like the avocados were not ripe. The service was great but the food was mediocre.

    Our server Maddison was amazing. She was so helpful and always there when we needed her without being too overbearing. She was very knowledgeable. The food (all you can eat tacos) were so good! And it happened to be National margarita day! Which were also delicious. Can’t wait to come back and dine again! Thanks!!

    With the full restaurant and then the guitar player walking back and forth it was VERY loud which made it hard to talk and made overstimulating. Although the guitar Music was nice, it would have been good if he sat at the back and played so that the music and ambiance would have been enjoyed but not overwhelming. Thanks

    Made a reservation two hours before a show that we were seeing in town. It took 20 minutes for drink orders to be taken. Appetizers finally came out at the hour and 15 minute mark. Half an hour before we had to go to the show, we asked the waitress if our main courses would be much longer. She told us that they would be a bit of a wait. We then ask to pay our bills and for take out containers so that we could pack up and leave as soon as our main courses came out. Our food finally came 10 minutes before the show. However, the waitress had forgotten to give us our containers. We had to remind her again. Despite being pleasant, our waitress was not punctual, attentive, or apologetic for the wait. She came to our table maybe three times during our dinner. The food is overvalued and very expensive for the quality we received. There are much tastier and better valued Mexican options in Peterborough.

    Appetizers were outstanding, the ceviche the best we’ve ever had. My one of the main was great, my fish tacos very mediocre with very small bits of fish smothered in a much over-sweet sauce. We will come again, but pick a different main!

    Great food, pricey but very fresh and quality ingredients. The mariachi singer adds to the ambiance. I recommend the tacos al pastor, queso birria, the guacamole, and the tres leches and horchata creme brûlée for dessert. The flavour of the food and desserts were exceptional- the creme brûlée was curdled due to heat but the flavour made up for it. The tres leches was very flavourful as well, but should have had more time to absorb the milks and should have been served cooler. Overall very delicious and would order everything here again.

    Great food. Wonderful service. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful in selecting a meal from the menu as it was our first time eating at a Mexican restaurant. Many different dishes to choose from The interior of the restaurant was clean , modern and inviting. Great ambience. Great drink list if you are looking for margaritas. Recommend making reservations especially on a Friday. Appeared to have many regular repeat customers.

    Seated right away as we had a reservation (highly recommended for a weekend visit). Server was attentive but not intrusive; gave us enough time to decide on our choices, and eat them. Drinks were good, food was average - we expected a little more of the unique flavors of a specialty Mexican restaurant. Pricy, too. Maybe it's post-covid costs. Would recommend the restaurant, but for us it's a one-and-done.

    This was my second time attending in two weeks, and I must comment on the lack of consistency. I went for a lunch date two Saturdays ago with my husband and son. The three tacos we each ordered were fulfilling and delicious. The serving of meat per taco was moderate and satisfying. My girlfriends and I meet up monthly for dinner, supporting our locally owned business in the downtown core. They had suggested we go to La Hacienda, but since we've been there often, I suggested we cancel that reservation and go to Agave instead. Unfortunately, this turned out to be a disappointment, to say the least. The tacos we ordered had maybe a tablespoon of meat per taco and were smothered in sauce. All in all, we were in and out within 40 minutes of sitting down, with no offer of refills for the cocktails we ordered. It was a very rushed experience overall. I can't say I'll ever suggest going here again. Consistency is what keeps the locals coming back!

    Diablo Shrimp was good but didn't expect them with "shells on" in a sauce. Very messy & would not order again. I'm hoping the Chef forgot to remove them & they are not always served this way.

    Overall it was great experience. The vegan empanadas were amazing and both of us enjoyed our dinners. Although it was a little pricey, I also understand that location and overage must be difficult to contend with, and so the price can be overlooked in favour of the experience.
