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.

We have eating at El Cazador in Sequim many times, so were excited to see there was one in Oak Harbor during a recent stay. The food was good, but definitely not as good as the Sequim location!

The last time we had eaten there, I split a meal with my mom. I guess we shouldn't have told them that we were splitting it because they charged us an extra $2 just for a plate, they didn't even split the food up or give extra. The portion sizes were small. We had chimichangas but looked more like mini-chimis.... More

The restaurant is family oriented and has an obvious spanish flair. The help is friendly, quick to smile. Service is good, the food is good. The place is clean and has plenty of tables. Prices are a little high, but worth it. Delivery service available.
