Unfortunately this great restaurant changed owners back in September 2013 and you can not even compare the quality and service of what it was to now. Would not go back.

After hearing great things about this restaurant, I was really excited about visiting Agave and getting some quality Mexican. However, I was pretty disappointed. The restaurant lacks any kind of ambience and I found the the waitress to be somewhat awkward and cold. The food was pretty average and completely overpriced for what you get. You're better off going to... More

This was my second time to Agave at it was very disappointing - especially as it was just after our engagement. Food was so expensive and it was so dark I could barely see what I was eating. Cocktails are nice but again, so overpriced! Why would you go here when Bills is just over the road and beyond amazing!

The waitresses were very friendly, that was it... We were there on a saturday night and asked for the king prawn fajitas. And instead of king prawns we got small prawns. The manager explained that they were out of king prawns and always choose what is freshest, and they compensate by putting more of the other stuff. Well, fair enough,... More

I booked this through a deal on Eatability that offered 50% off all food. I came here with my friend and we were really looking forward to it - my friend had been before and said it was great. It is great no more. Apparently new owners have taken over, one of them was serving on the night. He was... More

I'm almost relieved to read reviews similar to our experience as I was starting to believe that maybe I had just imagined this bad experience in our heads! My partner and I also dined there using a deal voucher. I was so excited to try this place with a voucher which helps eliminate the expensive risk of trying a new... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighbourhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colourful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighbourhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
