Our Story


Experience the true flavor of Mexico at San Diego's premier Mexican cuisine destination. Established in 1996, El Agave Restaurant & Tequileria offers its patrons a unique dining setting within the largest tequila museum in the United States.


My family and I came here for an early Father's Day dinner and it was fantastic. The restaurant is up to par with their new covid routine and patrons are evenly spaced throughout the restaurant. All the food and desserts were excellent.

Absolutely lovely restaurant, the decor is amazing and provides the atmosphere. Its definitely a bit more on the upscale side but worth every penny for the experience. I recommend this to anyone in San Diego visiting.
