Just ok....I ordered the fresh fish tacos, basically got a few small pieces of heavily battered, greasy fish, more batter than fish. No grilled option... The tortillas were fresh & the beer was cold, which was nice but overall, nothing special. Very dusty tables since...its in a super dusty spot.More

We had seen this taco shop a few times on our way to and from the beach and finally decided to go in and try it out. Our first impression of Del Mar Taco was that it was a really nice space full of lively...succulents, and cactuses. The man running the place was also really nice and did a great job of managing the number of guests that flooded in behind us all on his own. We ordered the vegetarian burrito and tacos-- both delicious! What we couldn't stop talking about was the homemade tortilla chips! Soooo good. When we go back, an order of chips and guac is a must! If you have a sweet tooth, go for the "churro" chips. Another great excuse to eat those tortilla chips!More

So good and cheap too. Ended up eating 4 tacos! The fish ones were my favorite but the shrimp was good too. Right next to the beach.

Del Mar Taco Shop has the BEST fish tacos I have ever had anywhere! We found this hidden gem at the beginning of our four week stay near Dominical and have eaten here at least once or twice a week! They use fresh fish (not...the typical tilapia you find at most places), topped with shredded cabbage, special sauce and guacamole. The fish is fried to perfection and not greasy. The service here is friendly and fast. They are taking safety precautions regarding the pandemic, so it feels safe knowing they care about public health. If you are visiting this area, do not miss this place, it’s the BEST!!! Thank you Del Taco, we will miss you when we head back to the states!More

We had chicken and beef taquito special meals. We really enjoyed the food and the calming vibe. Highly recommend this little place for a casual meal.

We went for lunch several times at our recent stay nearby. The flower chips and guacamole were great but the House hot sauce is where it’s at. Also be sure to grab a smoothie.

I own Tree of Life Cabinas, and not only do I eat at Del Mar Taco at least once a week, I send all of my guests too. The food is freshly prepared to order and always delicious. My favorites are the HUGE burritos and...the guacamole with freshly fried tortilla chips. Great staff and location with a view of the ocean too!More

This was one of the highlights of our trip. Great food in a laid back environment. The fish tacos and fish burritos are amazing. We will reminisce about this place for the rest of our lives. Try to go

The food was very fresh and tacos were delish. We went back the next day for burritos and would have loved to try other items if we had more time.
