Dear Customer, We regret to hear that your experience at Chile&Agave wasn't pleasant. Prices in the menu had to be adjusted to mirror the increment on minimum wages that came with the year. We've always been proud to serve artisanal dishes made from scratch, fresh...More

Great place to relax with some awesome Mexican food and drinks. I haven't encountered anywhere in Niagara that has Mexican food on this level. If you want to have an authentic Mexican experience, this is the place.
