We all loved our food here, we would come back in a heart beat!! The portions are huge - be prepared to take some home with you. Especially if you add bean and rice to your meal as a side. Very reasonable prices, and lots of refills on the drinks. Excellent customer service! I can't say enough good things! Try... More

Good food at a good price, if you like Mexican you'll love it. Big portions and a friendly staff, large seating area and great service. Large menu to choose from and very authentic, real Mexican food.

I had a large birthday party here (25 people) and the El Cazador staff did a terrific job of communicating with me throughout the planning process and during the party itself. I would specifically like to thank Natasha, Jose, Andres and Leo. They did a wonderful job of setting up the tables, getting the food out right on time, cutting... More

We happened upon this place coming back from Deception Pass. The chips and salsa were okay, nothing special. They did have a mild & a hot salsa. Chips were typical bag chips. The food came quickly & was hot. It was very good from the chicken mole to the shrimp tacos. The atmosphere was typical too.

We have enjoyed our meals at El Cazador. The service is good, attentive wait staff, the food is served hot and it is tasty. There are other Mexican Restaurants in Oak Harbor, and we have tried them all, but this one is our favorite.

The decor is traditional Mexican, dress code is casual. The staff are prompt and friendly. They never let you run out of chips, salsa or drink. The service was excellent. The menu was a real treat, with many dishes you would not normally find at a Mexican restaurant. I had the choro pollo, which is chicken on top of crumbled... More

The staff was very attentive and the food was excellent. We enjoy dining at Mexican restaurants and this was one of the best. The prices were very fair for the generous, fresh prepared portions. As stated earlier, the service was excellent also.
