You don't expect this from a Taco Truck. When the food is served, the tables go silent and people "inhale" it. The best mexican I have ever had (apart from my wife's of course).

In our experience this is the best place to eat in Tofino. It is permanently located outside the town, at the end of a gravel food/crafts plaza, but very local knows where it is. There is always a line-up but has eating tables outside.

Tuna tacos are even better than the famous fish tacos. I now go once a week to Tacofino in Vancouver!

Husband, son and I came for dinner. Great fish tacos. We liked them so much we came back a second time during our stay in Tofino. I'm gluten free, and they only offer flour tortillas (I just ate the filling out of them), corn tortillas would be a good offering.

I've tried Tacofino in Tofino, Vancouver and Kelowna, multiple times... and I've never been dissapointed! Their tuna taco is by far the best taco I've ever had, anywhere! The wasabi, ginger and cabbage are superb next to the fresh tuna. I've also tried their avocado taco, which is a really great veggie option. My boyfriend always gets the pulled pork... More

Delicious fish tacos out of a funky food truck at a reasonable price. Nice location with picnic tables.

Not really sure what all the hype is about. It was good food, but long wait on a drizzly day. Marginally worth it. Price is fine. This is a food truck.

Good fish taco but not exceptional, I ordered guacamole on the side for $3.50, you only get a very small amount. I also ordered mango coconut smoothie, it came on a sweet side and I think they used powder mix, which was a let down.

Being from South Texas we enjoy a good taco. Although their tacos were good, the ones we had did not stand up to the rave reviews I have read on Tripadvisor. It was kind of a letdown after waiting in long line to get a taco like a hundred places in San Antonio can offer.

Best fish Tacos & Burritos EVER! No other taco will ever compare. Lime/mint freshie was perfect beverage to accompany our yummy eats. Great value, super friendly staff! Thanks for the experience, you will be one of our first stops next time we are in tofino.
