Waited in a huge lineup but well worth it. Six of us ordered everything from fish tacos to beef burritos. Each one said theirs was the best....absolutely delish.

If you can find this place it is well worth the long line up. Extremely fresh ingredients, fish tacos were the best.

We came here because of the good reviews and because we had heard they are gluten free friendly. They definitely know what they are talking about with gluten, but unfortunately the only option completely free from gluten contamination is the black bean taco, as the meats are either marinated in soy, tempura or grilled on the same grill as the...

Just had fish tacos for lunch. The cod was very tasty but the albacore tuna was spectacular. Best we've had.

Amazing. Never had a taco like this before. It's not in the downtown core of Tofino so be prepared to drive or go for a lengthy walk. Ask a local - everyone knows where it is. It's worth the effort to get there.

After a day of surfing, this is absolutely the perfect way to satisfy a ravenous appetite! Despite my love of Sriracha, I recommend liberally applying the Valentina hot sauce all over their perfected fish taco and digging in! Get two if you're hungry, or just want to keep you tastebuds happy for that much longer!

The restaurant is actually located inside a school bus at the far end of the shopping center and is not visible from the road. The menu is... More

If you can find it (tucked into the back of a parking lot) you will love this food truck. We had a couple of lunches here and the fish tacos were great. They use very fresh fish in large quantities. I could not believe how much seared tuna I had for $6. The chef punches above his weight class because... More
