Cabezon is a great choice for high quality food with a very nice atmosphere. We were especially happy to be somewhere that was quiet enough that we could hold a normal conversation. The food is mostly fish, but there are options for people who just have to have their meat. The highlights were the mussels appetizer with chorizo and fries,... More

The starter of blini was delicious! Freshly made. We had a late dinner while attending a dog show. Surprise the food was delicious. We both had the fish stew, it was cooked to order, had a lovely lingering tomato flavor. Service was excellent.

Although a bit of a drive for us we wanted to try something new and were focused on seafood. What a nice, great surprise to discover Cabezon😄 Every dish we had between the five of us was delicious and the ambiance and service was great. Wish we had room for desert but we will leave that for our return Enjoy

Cabezon is a cozy restaurant about a 10 minute Uber ride east of downtown. But it is well worth the ride. For starters, the blini with trout caviar was spectacular. This was followed by a large mound of huge mussels, topped with fries and a yellow sauce... some of the best mussels we've ever had. Entrees were the delicious cioppino... More

Land at 3:00, rent a car ($$$$$) drive to Marriott and check in. Search for "seafood" and this place pops up. Looked like a likely possibility. Easy to make an "open table" reservation for 6:30. Local draft beer and a martini to start. Shrimp bisque. B+ (just a bit too salty) Cioppino with white gulf shrimp, local fish, Dungeness crab,... More

Great meal on the way to the Portland airport for an evening flight! Seafood was outstanding as were the salads. Pink lemonade was a real treat and unexpected.

For the second year in a row, a reservation led to a fantastic dinner. Restaurant appears to be a local gem as it is filled with locals not tourists. Dining can be outside or inside, not a large space but excellent. Children have been seen there.

We are summer visitors and went to Cabezon last year, and even though we love to try all the fabulous restaurants in Portland, this has become one of our favorites! We just returned from another fabulous dinner with our friends. We all agreed that every dish we had was outstanding, creative, well flavored, and a very attractive presentation! One delicious...

We were looking for a good seafood restaurant and saw the TA reviews for this restaurant. Glad we went as we had excellent food. I had cioppino which was very good with one exception - too spicy. The others in our party had basil shrimp over lentils and salads which they were very happy with.
