Great Mexican in Port Townsend

The food was good, and the staff was very friendly. Port Townsend isn't where I would think of for Mexican food, but it sounded good, and the reviews were good.

Great salsa, loved my chicken enchilada. Service was great too. Cold beer. Near the water in Port Townsend. Would definitely come back here next time we are close by.

After a rough day on the water making our way across to Port Townsend, we were hungry after tying up to the dock. Our meal at El Sarape did not disappoint! We started with a carafe of fruit studded sangria, very nicely prepared. But the real star of the meal was the Chili Colorado Burrito. The chunks of pork in... More

Decided to go there for lunch since the reviews were good. The service was the best we have experienced. The lady was very professional, clean, neat, and friendly. The food was good. We had the lunch taco salad and 1/2 plate of nachos. Lots of shredded chicken in the taco salad and the shredded beef in the nachos was very... More

Family oriented; unpretentious; nice change from more heavily promoted "touristy" waterfront restaurants; prompt service; customer focused; varied menu; large portions; good value.

The service is good, and the food comes out very fast. Compared to most restaurants in Port Townsend, the prices are a little less. Large portions, friendly people. Wish they had whole black beans as well as refried beans...

Had dinner here my first trip to Port Townsend. The service was very friendly and attentive. I sat at one of the front window tables, which made for an interesting street scene as I ate, especially with the Steampunk convention in town! The Cadillac margarita was one of the best I've ever had, perfectly mixed. I'm only an occasional drinker,... More

I go in there once in a while and have lunch or dinner and the staff is always super kind and professional. Very relaxed place and not too spendy, worth it for the people.

We stopped at this restaurant and it was a very pleasant surprise. The food was very fresh and tasty and the waiters were excellent. The outside does not look that inviting, but once inside ... you can tell why it is a local favorite.
