Tuna taco perfection

Tuna taco immaculate! Tasted the pork and kimchi, and fish tacos - good but the tuna taco was divine.

Being from England, our cousins in Canada told us that we needed to take a trip to Tacofino. It did not disappoint. A little difficult to find from a map view point, however you're glad once you find it. Queues are a bit crazy at lunch, highlighting the popularity. The fish tacos are a must, along with the coconut shakes.... More

This place was a "must do" for my first trip to Tofino because it was listed as #1 through tripadvisor. The second day we were there, we decided to give it a try. I got two tacos - the cod and the tuna and my friend got a beef burrito. I didn't taste his but said it was really good.... More

Tacofino rules!! We visited Tofino for our honeymoon and hit up the Tacofino truck for a bite, the line was long, the prices were moderate, but the food was exceptional!! Fresh, flavourful, and satisfying. By far my favourite tacos place, I've eaten at many taco places in Van, but these were my fave to date.

The tacos are amazing - fresh, flavourful and filling without being too heavy. I highly recommend the tuna taco and a side order of kimchi. My husband enjoyed the spicy chocolate cookie. If you can, I suggest arriving just before noon to beat the rush.

Loved this place! Just a small food truck hidden in the back of a parking lot behind Live to Surf, but by far the best burrito I've ever had! So good we went back for seconds. If you are in Tonfino you need to check this place out, you wont be disappointed!

After some reservations ( located in a rustic old hippie type foodie truck) we tried the fish and the tuna tacos and shared a burrito. Good thing we shared the latter it was huge. Fresh tasty and gooey but so worth searching out where they were located. Even the multitude of crows enjoyed our left overs. Unique experience

When you see a line up of folks standing in the rain to buy a taco or burrito either everyone is crazy, or the food is superb. Tacofino is superb. OK, the rain is during the winter, but in the summer the lineups are longer...lots of local kids and pretend surfers who come for a few days. The "fish taco"... More

Damn this place has some tasty tacos! Wanted to try it based on reviews and my love for food trucks! We were so impressed, we went back for seconds straight away and wished we were staying in Tofino longer so that we could return. Recommend the fish and beef tacos, amazing flavours.
