      Cantina Agave serves up basic mexican dishes such as tacos, what is impressive is the long list of Tequila and Frozen margaritas. It's small and gets busy late at night and on weekends when the weather is good.

    Cantina Agave is a Mexican gem in the middle of Shanghai. Though many restaurants claim to have Mexican items on their menus (nachos, chips and guacamole, margaritas, and so on), this place is the real deal. Cantina Agave's chips and salsa include salsa from a salsa bar with 5-6 different options. Their guacamole actually tastes like it was made, not spooned out of a can. And their margaritas are legitimately tasty and made right, not the junky knock-off stuff you find at other restaurants that tastes like straight sweet 'n sour. They've even got an IPA on tap for those who want something different. Every menu item I've had from burritos to tacos to the chicken salad have all been delicious. Most of the staff is very friendly and helpful, especially the management. The decor is nothing that to brag about, but the quality of food and drink more than make up for that. Not a great spot for a business meeting or a quiet date, but absolutely the place to go if you want have a craving for real Mexican food.
    A bit sad to lose my favorite Mexican place

    I just returned from dinner at Cantina Agave and can say it was truly one of the worst experiences I've had eating out in Shanghai.

    Since I moved to Shanghai Cantina Agave has been my go to place for Tex-Mex. I have always recommended it to friends and I still think the food and beverages are some of the better tex-mex available in Shanghai, but the service I had tonight was absolutely obscene.

    I ordered 2 tacos, but was served a burrito instead of the tacos I ordered, the manager insisted that the waitress had taken my order correctly. Honestly I was fine with the burrito, I just wanted some recompense for the error, a drink on the establishment or taking the difference between my original order and what I served off the bill (20 RMB at most). Any restaurant that cares even a little about its customers (and its reputation) would probably do at least this much.

    Instead the English speaking manager on duty went on a rant about how the waitress had double confirmed my order (she hadn't) and she didn't even offer an apology.

    I'm a bit sad to lose my favorite Mexican place, but people deserve to actually be treated like valued costumers when they go out for a meal and this place just doesn't want to do that.
