Went there with friends because their fav was closed. It's kind of out of the way but easy to get to on a side street. Bar is nice, good GF offerings and were very cooperative in converting plates to Gf. Oysters were excellent, Ciapino was really good, my wife had Shrimp served over lentils, she wasn't impressed, said it was... More

I've enjoyed Cabezon several times over the past few years. It's always a great experience. This last visit I simply had a cocktail, a wine, a Caesar salad ( which was very generous in proportion), and a shrimp appetizer. It was all excellent and plenty of food.

With my boys being engaged in social activities for New Year's Eve, it seemed like a great opportunity for my brother and I to indulge in a wonderful seafood dinner. My key desire was to find a menu with subtle flavors, whimsical uses of local fare, but deliberate in portion. Cabezon "caught" my attention. In particular, the Tork Oysters and... More

We visited Cabezon on a rainy weeknight with our son, daughter-in-law, and infant granddaughter. We were seated almost immediately. Our server fussed over the baby and we never felt unwelcome-it is a very family friendly environment for such a small, upscale restaurant. The food is sensational. We started with the Caesar salad and enjoyed the twist with both radicchio and... More

Drove there a little after 6 pm thinking we would not get in....my wife went in ahead to find if there was a chance to get... More

Landed in Portland on a Friday evening at 5:30. Found Cabezon by searching for places near the airport. It was an quick trip to the restaurant during rush hour and we appreciated not having to get in the standstill traffic on 205. Parking was tight on the small, neighborhood streets near the restaurant, but Nicole learned to drive in Paris... More

I went to Cabazone with my family (husband and 9 year old daughter). The restaurant is pretty small so there was small wait even though it was a weekday. It was worth the wait in so many ways. The food was amazing, well prepared and lovely presentation, sourced locally when available. The service was attentive but not intrusive and atmosphere... More

We have had dinner at Cabezon several times. The menu is varied and always contains local fish & vegetables. The layered flavors and combinations are incredibly creative and filled with mouth watering flavor. We plan to return soon!

Cabezon is a small intimate restaurant that specializes in local seafood. The environment welcoming and quiet enough for conversation among a group of 5. The romaine radicchio salad was crisp and perfectly dressed. Our favorite dishes were the mussels with chorizo and the cioppino. The servers were friendly and attentive to our needs. YUM!

Portland has a lot of good seafood places but this is my favorite. Spanish influenced food but mostly just well prepared and fresh. Nice bar and good selection of wines. Located outside the core of the city but close to the airport if you are looking for good food but needing to go to the airport for a departure or... More
