After reading the tripadvisor reviews we had to check the place out. You would never find it unless you are looking, but it is worth finding. The fish tacos (and burritos) are fantastic as is the tuna ta taco. If you have picky kids the cheese gringas are a cheap and delicious alternative. Don't go to tofino without eating here!

You can order anything here without making a mistake! Be sure to try the Diablo Cookie - chocolate with chilies and sea salt. Also the lime/mint drink.

The tacos are amazing- I had the salmon and the cod and both were excellent. However it's very popular and it does take a while to prepare so be prepared to wait. If you're in a rush there is another less famous taco place in the same plaza and it's also very good (although can't remember the name).

Luckily we were told about Tacofino before our visit to Tofino. If you don't know it's there, you probably won't come across it. Anyway, we had the fish burrito on our first visit. It really was the best burrito we have ever had. This led to a second visit when we were torn between having another burrito or trying the... More

The long lines will clue you in that Tacofino is not to be missed. It was well worth the wait (and to be honest they crank out those tacos so quickly it's really impressive). Both the tempura cod and ahi tuna tacos were delicious (with a slight edge to the tuna). My husband also had a burrito on our second... More

Last year, a family member who lives on Vancouver Island told me "if ever you visit Tofino, you just have to have a fish taco at the yellow bus in a parking lot" Well, the opportunity came about, the fish taco was wonderful (and extremely messy to eat, but that's part of the charm) and now I wonder how long...

If you love seared ahi tuna, you will looooove this one. I could eat this any time. They also have other different tacos and burritos that are amazing. The chocolate diablo cookies here are the bomb too!

Our Innkeeper recommended that we have a fish taco at Tacofino for lunch when we visited Tofino and it was one of the best recommendations we've ever had. The fish tacos are to DIE for! So good, we cancelled our reservation at a fancier restaurant in town and came back for another round for dinner. Also had them with the... More

We come to Tofino every summer and tried this one for the first time last year. This year the kids were chanting "Tacofino! Tacofino!" on our first day here. We've been here a week, have been to Tacofino twice and will undoubtedly be back. While I love the fish taco at SoBo's, the fish tacos here are to die for.... More
