Cazador is a bistro-style restaurant that specialises in Game Food.
Head Chef Dariush Lolaiy writes a chalkboard of daily specials, alongside a changing menu of game staples, seasonal produce and vegetarian options.
Cazador is an unpretentious, cosy place with kooky decor and friendly staff. The wine list is short and considered, and there’s a selection of lesser known craft beers to enjoy alongside venison, duck, rabbit, pork, pheasant and fresh, seasonal vegetables.
With a bit of forewarning hunters can bring us their catch and we’ll cook and serve it to share.
Cazador has been run by the Lolaiy family for 25 years – there’s always a familiar face behind the desk, and enthusiastic waiters to help with choosing from the menu and finding drinks to match.

Service was exceptional, and nice touch on giving us complimentary glass of liquor at the end of the meal in celebration of my husbands birthday.
We’ll be back, and I have already passed on our recommendations to our friends.
The pheasant was delicious and the dessert – genius! We ordered and shared between four the chocolate mousse, figs, ricotta, meringue w goat curd and baklava.. and each dessert was incredible! If I could give it more than five stars, I would. Fantastic service too.
Had entree: Kalamari, mains- braised duck and Stoneys venison, desserts: chocolate mousse and chocolate/mango sorbet- all perfect.
A great dining experience – thanks Cazador !

The food was at best bland or over-spiced as I feel they are trying to deliver more than is feasible
I will not be revisiting as I believe it is past it’s prime
The service was fantastic, we enjoyed the live entertainment, and the food was really good. The meat eaters in our dining party raved about the Pheasant and Wild Pork. My pasta was very tasty and the desserts were scrumptious.
I even blogged about this restaurant at http://celestereviews….
The meals we really good value too.
