Mexican
Eclectico Restaurant & Agave Bar is a daring new culinary concept that explores what it means to eat outside the box. Our Pan-Latin fusion cuisine with a contemporary Mexican heart is exciting, new, and barrier breaking, offering a shareable tapas-centric culinary experience with affordable value and quality ingredients. Eclectico is not just a name, but a way in which we think and the way by which we exist. It invites the guest to explore not what is, but what could be, if we venture to step outside the realms of tradition.

Menu offerings are both familiar and unexpected. We strive to provide not just great food with delightful elements of originality, but also an unforgettable dining experience. Local artists set the ambiance with hand painted interior and exterior décor to encompass a new interpretation of blended cultures. Where art is life and life is sustenance, Eclectico is the canvas on which we create our passions. We are located in the luxury Shops of Merrick Park.

The service and food are excellent. The restaurant is beautiful. Their signature margaritas are great but a bit too sweet. Their classic margarita needs to be better. Overall a great experience. Would definitely go back

Interesting take on Mexican dishes and other South American fare, served tapas style. Service was excellent and the Avocado Cheesecake is not to be missed. The unexpected fire show was a treat.

Interesting to approach to nouveau Mexican. Fundamentally flawed as the food was not particularly good. Outside of a vegetarian chorizo, the rest of the meal was not tasty. This included mac and cheese tacos, portobello tacos and loaded fries which were far too similar to bar food.

While there was nothing wrong with the service, it was a bit uninspiring.

We enjoyed the whole experience at Eclectico. Our server was very sweet, the 7-day happy hour was a nice treat for our first round of Micheladas (not on the menu but delicious!) and every dish we tried was really fresh, flavorful and satisfying. My favorite was the ahi tuna tostada. Oh - almost forgot the Fire Dancer, which was really cool AND not obtrusive or over-done as sometimes is the case.

The restaurant is beautifully decorated. We went for Miami Spice month but ended selecting from the regular menu. The service was exceptional. Food was really good. We only ordered tapas: guacamole with chicharrón, carnitas quesadilla and ceviche. They had a girl with entertainment and showcasing fire. It was really cool.

The atmosphere & art were what attracted me to this location. The food was surprisingly better than expected. We had the miami spice menu which included salmon (meh) & the lamb chops (delicious). The highlight & pleasant surprise was a fire “goddess” performer which made the atmosphere that much funnier & entertaining.

Is there a way to give more than 5 stars? Eclectico is not just great dining, it's a taste experience like no other. My wife and I were first-timers at Eclectico for Miami Spice and became instant fans. Their menu stood out from the other participating restaurants because of the diversity, they had vegan, pescatarian and meat options for both appetizers and entrees. Demi, our server, was awesome! Attentive, charming and delightful. The food, simply put, is uniquely amazing in the way it is prepared and presented, not to mention the explosion of wonderful flavors. Those combinations? Omg, how do you do it? Ramzi, if you're reading this, the Causa Commotion is an absolute gem and must be a permanent fixture on the menu. We will be requesting it (and much more) on our next visit... which btw, will be soon!!!

The ahi ceviche was pretty good but very spicy. Beef tacos where extremely salty. The fish tacos had something sweet that didn't match. Carnitas where super dry and very salty too. Our sever was very attentive and apologetic.

Don’t get me wrong, the food here is actually very good. However, it’s WAY OVERPRICED!!! The portions are very small because most of the plates are tapa style. I wasn’t a fan of the drinks either. Do not come here unless it’s happy hour.

Decided to try this place out and it did not disappoint. It’s tapas style so it was fun to share multiple dishes. My favorite were the short rib patacones. Also love the horchata creme brûlée and the miami spice cocktail made with mezcal and banana liquor which tasted like an ild fashioned…can’t remember the name. Our server, Demi, was professional, knew the menu inside out and took good care of us. The only thing missing was more people - so go try it!!!

I have nothing but great things to say about this restaurant. Our service was excellent and the food was out of this world delicious. The only thing that would have made it better was the churros that were only available for the Miami Spice menu. Overall a wonderful experience, I can’t wait to go back!

The presentation of food and service was superb. I tried the Miami spice prix-fix menu for $42 I had vegan croquettes as an appetizer and a do-it-yourself vegan taco platter. For dessert we had the creme brûlée. Everything was so amazing and fresh and we had a fire dancer as entertainment.

It was a nice restaurant to look at but I was very disappointed with the food. The waiter seemed confused about the menu and didn’t know how to describe the drink ingredients. We had to the queso fundido which was ok but had raw peppers sprinkled on top and impossible chorizo. It was ok. They brought out all of the food at once which was disappointing because the tacos became cold and unpleasant to eat. We asked why this happened and the waiter simply replied it’s like that on a slow day. We had the Mac and cheese tacos which were cold and loaded with chunks of jalapeño more than Mac and cheese which really upset the flavor. The alligator tacos were decent. All in all I would rather go to chevys or talavera in Miami way better food and value. We won’t be returning to this restaurant.
