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

A very Portland place super casual welcoming with excellent food and beverages of the adult variety and affordable! They even served plain noodles for fuss budget but adorable granddaughter. Writing this reminds me we must return.

Small and mostly seafood menu. Our group had cioppino (need more bread to soak up the great broth), fat mussels with chorizo and crisp fries, pan seared sturgeon, lamb chops. All was very well prepared, high quality and tasty food. Beautifully plated presentation. Nice local wine and beer list. Great place to bring family, friends, visitors. Attentive staff too. Definitely... More

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.
