This is our second time back and so glad we did!! The burritos are jammed pack with goodness! We had the beef and the crispy chicken this trip and didn't disappoint. On our last trip we had the crispy fish and was also amazing. You have to try the chocolate diablo cookies:) The staff are super friendly and love chatting.... More

Had fish tacos here two days in a row they are delicious.We come here every time we visit Tofino. After a disappointing and expensive dinner the night before at Wolf in the Fog this was a cheap and excellent lunch that was so much better value. If you visit Tofino you must try Tacofino

So we were staying in Ucluelet for our son's wedding and we wanted something fun and local a few nights before the wedding for a family/bridal party meet and greet. We called Tacofino and told them we needed enough food for 35 people and we needed it in about 3 hours. They said no problem and had everything ready to... More

This was recommended by a friend to be the best fish tacos ever. We drove to Tofino with this pretty much as our main objective. Indeed, fantastic fish tacos! They also have other things on the menu if fish tacos aren't your thing. It was the weekend of a rain storm and not high tourist season so the town was... More

I'm a huge goody and I can confidently say that this is the best fish tacos I have ever had. Every time I mention Tofino, my friends always ask, have you been to Tacofina? Now I know why. Last trip, they weren't open and this time we are lucky enough to get a couple of orders during the winter season.... More

Tacofino was closed the last time we were here. This time a lineup and a bit of a wait to get the food. But great crispy chicken burritos, filled us up and were very yummy. It was nice out so we could sit outside, which is nice. Will be back. And will try different stuff at the Victoria location.

The lunch we had was fantastic. The Tuna taco was to die for. I had a chicken burrito and it was fantastic and quite large. The fish taco was also great

Tucked in behind the "Live to Surf" parking lot, you'll find a line-up of hungry locals and tourists salivating in line while they anticipate eating the killer fish tacos of Tacofino. Don't forget your umbrella and boots in the winter season because the weather will not slow down the line-up. The tacos are a perfect combination of tempura crunch over... More
