The food was not bad but definitely not worth the hype. I thought wildsides taco's were better. Way too overpriced. you wait forever for your order too.

You won't be disappointed. So so good. The queso sauce in the tacos reminds me of the kind my grandmother makes and no one has ever come close to that! Great prices considering you are in Tofino. Try the watermelon basil fruit slushee. I'm going back tomorrow.

I agree with the previous writer - this is a gem and not to be missed! It is a busy venue with locals & tourists, all willing to wait to sample the food and the food is definitely worth it! The fish and tuna tacos were absolutely amazing but everyone around us was pleased with what they had ordered. Seating is at picnic tables with the locals which makes for a friendly & welcoming atmosphere. We did have an expensive restaurant meal out one evening but all four of agreed we would have been more satisfied if we had gone back to Tacofino!

Not your usual tacos, this is a gem. Taco truck in a parking lot with picnic tables, but the resemblance ends there.
Kimchee anyone? Tuna and fresh ginger taco is a standout. The pork burrito is the ultimate comfort food - soft, oozing with flavor, too big to eat and too good not to finish.
Fantastic chili/ginger/salted chocolate cookie. Get the idea?

Best tacos ever - ok, maybe not EVER, but certainly in the top three. But where is it? in the back corner of the parking lot of a surf shop and also the same lot as Chocolate Tofino -- this restaurant is a former food truck - no wheels, Tacofina Cantina is not going anywhere - it was a truck , but now an al fresco delight with a couple long picnic tables. Serious fish tacos were about the best ive ever had. $4 not too muc for the quality... We went back for seconds and my son wants to eat there everyday.
