“Hands down the best Mexican in Oak Harbor!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

The service is on the pretty slow side, but it is hands down the best Mexican food on Whidbey. Not the best Mexican food EVER, but definitely the best on the Island. We will definitely be frequenters of Esteban's!

“wonderful chili verde”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Hadn't been to this restaurant in some time so was pleased to find the quality of their food and the service had not declined. The chili verde was excellent as was the chili relleno, but the true test is the homemade salsa... very good!

“A perfecto Mexican meal experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Fast service began with HOT chips and unusually excellent salsa. We shared a huge serving of arroz polo that was totally delicious as was their margarita. Having eaten hundreds of Mexican meals, this one was at the top of the list. We'll definitely return when in Oak Harbor.
