We went to Agave for happy hour expecting great margaritas on a Mexican Restaurant. I was not impressed with the margaritas. After the happy hour, we asked for tequila shots and we were charged over $7.5 for each shot!!! The tequila served was NOT premium tequila. As for the food, it was good, but not great. We had tamales and... More

This is the second Dominican restaurant with the first in Santo Domingo. The food is seriously great Mexican food with a great staff and 2:1 margaritas on Mondays. The salsa is full of flavor, but not hot and so spicy it burns your lips. The enchiladas in tomatillo sauce will scorch everything in its path. The flautas are a favorite... More

It's not real Mexican food but is much better than the typical Texmex, there are many different options They have a nice place for kids in the location at Bella Vista in avenue Sarasota They have to improve the desserts that are inedible

My only thinking is it's a little overpriced and the place could use some improvements specifically aesthetics. Otherwise I liked it.

I went to this place after reading reviews online and it sure didn't disappoint me. They have both an indoor and outdoor seating area. Not a great place to try the beers but good if you like trying other food. I tried their cilantro margaritas and they sure didn't disappoint me. In food I tried what the chef called winner... More

Must be best Mexican restaurant in Santo Domingo. Roast pork mole with rice was outstanding. The margaritas are top notch. I was surprised at the cilantro margarita which I had doubts about but it turned out to be my favorite. Service and ambiance were both excellent. What a staff. I am anxious to return

I visited with my family, enjoyed the food and the ambiance. Decoration is simple and the food is good, not spicy but tasty. We had the famous margaritas and I liked the passion fruit, not traditional Mexican but very good.
