I'm not a taco guy. Or even a Mexican food afficionado. So when I went along with my wife and son, who had raved about this place, I was not expecting much. However, I have to say, the tacos at Tacofino were an eye-opener. I'm sold--I go there by choice now. The bench seating is pretty rudimentary--like a monk's refectory.... More

Bit of a que and wait to get the food but in a way it adds to the very relaxed mood, shared long tables mean you end up speaking to a whole range of people and lovely sunny day October helped....

The hardest part was finding Tacofino. It is a way at the back of a small collection of businesses. It was pouring rain and the road in is very rough. It is south of the actual townsite, right off the highway. It was fine one we got there. I had a tuna and a black bean . Both were good.

My University bound daughter took me to this great little hole in the wall dining experience. Atmosphere is dynamic and it caters to a youthful crowd. Food is well prepared and bottom line . . .tasty . . . now to visit the Tofino location . . .

Very busy on a rainy day. The fish tacos were excellent. The pork burrito was just average. Apparently, the crispy chicken burrito is their best burrito seller. The only disappointing thing is that they have no large umbrellas or rain shelters at all for their outside tables, which are the only tables they have, so we ate in car. It... More
