El Sarape is located near the pier in Port Townsend, along a street lined with old historical buildings. The dishes are very good, in particular the flavored Chicken Chipotle, the service is friendly and fast. A great spot for lunch or dinner.

Great menu selection, large portions, fast and friendly service and was reasonably priced. We were tired, hungry and the rest of the town seemed to be closed down. We found a little piece of Mexico tucked away at the end of Water Street.

The El Sarape restaurant in Tumwater, Washington opens at 11 AM every day of the week. We went at night but their website said they are open for lunch. Hope that helps!
