The review about the tortillas in accurate...the worst I have ever eaten. Although the ambiance is quaint and quite indicative of a Mexican restaurant, the food is disgusting...cold, flavorless and just run of the mill. I won't go back.

Have had a number of very good meals at Del Agave. Prefer sitting on the patio when the weather is nice. The food is very good, although not spectacular. Service is friendly and prices are fair.

True locals know that hands down this place has the best Mexican food in San Clemente. Great vibe and reasonable prices (for its downtown SC location), too. Del Agave is not to be passed on.

Del Agave is a unique and atmospheric Mexican restaurant in a quaint, old building in San Clemente. There are several good reasons to go there, like the piping hot soup and the tray of hot sauces that they bring to your table (including habanera sauces!)....More
