“Large party was a success!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

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 the cake and communicating with me on all aspects of the party. I truly appreciate it! Great job!

“Mexican anyone?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

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.

“Nice Local Mexican Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

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.
