I've eaten here dozens of times and everything always tastes great. LOVE the guac they make at your table for you. Great drink menu as well.

“Not as good as the Sequim location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

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!

“Decent food but too pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

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. The food was ok but not worth the money.
