I had driven by here many times but finally made it a point to stop in for a visit. The large menu had me scanning it for several minutes, having a hard time deciding what to try. I finally went with meal #44 (see picture), which is comprised of pork, chicken, egg cake and broken rice. I substituted the broken rice for fried rice. The meal was pretty good, though not particularly outstanding. The place was busy and had a pretty good vibe about it. The servers were fast and friendly, and the prices were reasonable. It's a good fit for all budgets.

The Moqueca is a wonderful restaurant in the harbor area. The fish stew is fabulous which brings us back whenever we are in town. Great flavors, authentic cuisine, good service and great food. Can’t wait for our next visit. Very quiet at the lunch hour with nice views over the harbor.

Sometimes, you just want Thai Food...and don't have to go far. Well, we are fortunate. We have it close by and it's good too. Personally, I love Pineapple Fried Rice. This comes with Shrimp, pork and chicken. If I had one complaint, I'd like more shrimp. My husband gets one and that leaves one for me. He loves the Spicy Basil plate. Uh, too spicy for me. But he's ordered it several times; so he must like it. The people there are so friendly and we really enjoy going here. Is it the best Thai food I've ever had? Nope! But then I've been to Thailand and have eaten a lot of Thai Food. Blue Elephant is down home cooking, tasty and good.

I had four cheese ravioli with meat sauce in a restaurant known for pizza. It was so delicious! It came with two toppings of my choice. I suggest the zucchini and mushrooms. The bread sticks are to die for! Toppers Pizza offers a myriad of topping choices for your pizza. There really is something for everyone. Outdoor seating is available for a lovely view of the harbor.

Some friends recommended the restaurant so we headed in and I went for a Chef's choice combination of Sushi and Sashimi as well as some Mixed Tempura, plus Miso. The Miso was fairly standard, the Tempura was light and tasty, and all the fish on the Sushi/Sashimi was very fresh and had good flavour. One interesting thing was that we were advised which Sushi to eat without Soy as he had added flavours that would be ruined, like one had some chopped onion/vinegar on top. Overall very fresh and very quick.

This is my favorite sushi I've found in Southern California . Their atmosphere is beautiful looking over the boats in the Ventura harbor (from the back row of tables). Their rolls are unique and delicious. It's small but packed with flavor. Although it's nothing to look at from the outside (it's located in a shopping place parking lot) don't let that discourage you!

Stopped in Oxnard for the night and after looking for a restaurant happened on the Cabo. Looked like a local place as it was busy but staff found us seats for 6 in the bar area. The waiter was friendly and gave us good service as did others. Fun place. The fish tacos were very good. Wish there was a local place like it.

Right on the canal with indoor and outdoor seating. Generous sized tables, great menu for choosing your favorite meal. Crispy tacos were a favorite at our table. This restaurant is extremely bright with windows everywhere, one level no steps, plenty of parking.

We had a good seafood lunch at this lively restaurant in the Channel Island Harbor. Both the grilled ahi tuna sandwich and the blackened cod sandwich were very good.
You place your order at the counter and bring a number to your table. Servers were efficient.

Living in Oxnard, we had heard that the Fisherman's Catch was the best seafood in the area. It took us awhile, but we finally tried it. We were disappointed. We went later on a Sunday. There were not a lot of people waiting, but the people behind the cash register were very disorganized. It seemed that they were just messing around rather than taking care of the people waiting. When it was finally our turn, the gentleman at the register told us that they were closing soon. We were unsure as to why he said that as he said we had time to order and eat. We placed our order - my husband ordered the Ahi Sandwich and I ordered the plate of grilled Mahi Mahi. Each came with one side. We got our number and waited for it to be delivered. It seemed like a long wait, but my order finally arrived, but they had forgotten to place my husbands order with the chef. As a consolation prize, the owner gave my husband a small cup of New England Chowder. My piece of fish was very small, dry, and overdone, yet barely warm. My side, which was rice, was not even warm and a very small portion. I was just about done with my meal before my husband's was delivered. His was hotter and he did enjoy the sandwich - but it was on the small side. If he had not had the soup, his meal would have barely satisfied him. I know that I left hungry, and the meal was not cheap. The atmosphere is very much like a cafeteria with lots of long tables and uncomfortable chairs. They were cleaning tables and putting chairs on their top as we were eating. They did ask if it was okay for them to spray the tables in order to clean them - which we said no problem. All in all, a less than satisfying experience. We probably won't try it again or recommend this eatery as there are so many better ones to choose from.
