It's fun to have dinner with locals who know where to go for good food and atmosphere. The night before our business meeting our business acquaintances became friends as we dined at their recommended place, Cabo Seafood Grill & Catina in Oxnard.
They also knew to order table side guacamole right away. This dish was not only good on chips, but heavenly slathered on the freshly made, hot corn tortillas that were continually replenished.
Terry enjoyed a plate of grilled and seasoned prawns, they looked great!
Michael ordered the fish of the day, which happened to be halibut. He gave it a thumbs up, and it looked good from my place at the table.
Stanton had a lovely combination plate, enchilada and what looked like two tacos. One of them is definitely carnitas, and the other I'm not sure, either al pastor, or carne asada. It all looked very flavorful and fresh.
I also had a combination, a fish tostada and prawn sopa. I was SO impressed by the freshness and perfect seasonings of both. The sopa was quite rustic, with quaintly misshapen sides and varying thickness. And it was also delicious.
We decided to try the cheesecake for dessert, one, with four forks. It was TALL and big so it was perfect to share. It was creamy as well, with a kick of cinnamon in the crust. All in all this is a great place to go for a casual dining experience in Oxnard.
