Loved the spa treatment it was amazing I would totally recommend that part of our treatment. The meal however was average at best 😕 staff were lovey so service was great however the actual food was a let down, I had the cheese burger and specifically ask there be no tomato ( allergy’s) only to start eating and find tomato thru it like they had put it in then realised it said no and simply picked it off in places 😕 fortunately i don’t have a anerflicatic allergy or we could have been in trouble . My friend ordered steak and chips with salad, you can’t really call a piece of brown lettuce and 2 tomatoes a salad. Everything else was amazing apart from the food 😕.

Pretty disappointing meal and service. Unlikely to recommend. So disappointing when there is such a stunning outlook.

Been here before and the food was amazing, last night it was very average. View was amazing! Staff very attentive and did well, very pleasant. Kind of not keen to go back sadly..due to the food it was poor and not worth the expensive price.

Food was beautifully presented & cooked. Ambience top class. Service was excellent. The only complaint I have was my seat was close to the window , there was a very cold draft coming through the door frame.

Maryanne and I have frequented Agave and have found that over the last few years that each dishes is absolutely delicious and well presented. The service has also been consistently good with the waitresses making you feel welcome and your needs are catered for. And of course, the view is stunning. Ticking all the boxes is what keeps us coming back!

Great views of the sun setting over the sea. The food was amazing,especially off the Stonegrill menu, where you cook the food yourself on a hot stone.

I booked well in advance and asked for a table with a view. When I arrived we were given a table with a view of the back wall and doors (not a window seat with a view). The table with the window seat with a view remained unoccupied for the whole duration of our visit. Absolutely appalling. The staff seemed extremely disorganised, slow to take orders, wanting to remove bread before it was finished, forgetting drinks and failing to take our dessert order until we requested them to do so. The food was delicious but overall very disappointed with our visit.

Im sorry guys but your food was not great, the “gourmet” milk hot chocolate was just hot milk with the slightest hint of chocolate...not ok esp when you had to pay 8 dollars for it. The chowder is just full of cream and no flavours to speak of. The pulled pork burger well my son who loves pulled pork only managed to eat half but no one queried why he didnt finish his food...thats a clue that something was not right. Calamari was great. Fish and chips..well i question the suitability of the choice of trevally as a fish for that dish. I can say however,the service was great. Friendly and efficient and i loved that but its the food that wouldve brought me back but its not likely. Such a great location guys, honour it with better food. If soneone leaves their food on the plate,,,ask why. The dumpling gyozas were so bad i cant even start to describe it. And ive had many...but kudos for at least serving everything with a smile.

I booked online for 5 people and a baby but for some reason they only had me down for a table of 3. Regardless the staff were very efficient in organising us a table straight away. The food was fantastic and the staff were lovely. We will be back.
