Loved the service. Loved the food, the fish tacos are excellent. Eat at one of the outdoor tables, you're bound to meet someone interesting. An experience not to be missed if you're in Tofino.

Our guide Brandon from Tofino Sea Kayaking said we need to head over to Tacofino for some killer fish tacos. I'm obsessed with fish tacos and these were amazing! No stinging on the fish, it was so perfectly deep fried. We had the halibut a.k.a the fish taco and the tuna. The tuna was also amazing but the halibut was... More

must wait in line at this food truck but they are quick and the food is worth the wait. Fish tacos are superb and most can eat two as one leaves you wanting for more! Seen others having burritos and they were huge!

We beat the rush. I had sent my mom earlier to find this and she couldn't find it. If you don't know it is there I can see how you can miss this. It is in the back of a parking lot. We got there and we a had a very little wait. The tables were full, but someone was... More

I tried Fish, Tuna and beef tacos. They were all delicious and packed with layers of great tasting food. Everything was right. Textural contrast and balance with acidity. Touch of cilantro, all creates a party in your mouth which starts at the very first bite. It is not cheap, starting at $4.50 and the service is slow but it is... More

Tacofino Tacos were amazing and the best fish tacos I have ever had. They are definitely worth the wait. I think we waited in line for 30 minutes but the line never went down and people kept coming. I can see why the tacos are wonderful. This is a must!!! The only down fall is there is limited seating and... More

Long wait, lack of space to sit, but good tacos. I have had better (in Mexico)...but these are yum and I would go back. I recommend the fish tacos.

You have to wait but it is worth it for the fish taco. Crispy, fresh ling cod, home made salsa, chipotle crema and cabbage slaw - a wondrous thing.

I couldn't stop eating here. Everything's just great! I especially loved the little sushi in a taco; Tuna Taco, with tuna, ginger, seaweed and wasabi mayo. If you're in Tofini you must eat here.

The fish burritos and Tacos were amazing! If you want something a little more felling get a burrito! The drinks are okay. It's worth the 45 min wait in line at lunch time.
