“We have tried so hard to recreate this taste!”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Tacofino's fish tacos are quite simply fab-u-lous. My husband had the fish burritos and he said the same. They are served from the back of a decorated bus, and the seating is very casual at long tables in a woodland-type area.
Since returning to the UK we have tried to make our own, and have visited a Mexican restaurant, but nothing has matched up to Tacofino!
Do not miss!

“Loved it! It was exactly what I was craving!”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

We stopped for a snack after a day of beach trails and this was exactly what we needed. We each had a fish taco with a side order of guacamole. We had lime-mint freshie drinks which tasted like mojotios without the rum, very tasty! You definately will need two tacos if you are looking for a meal but one is perfect for a snack! I'm not an expert on fish tacos but I have had them in Mexico and various Mexican restaurants and they stood out for me!

“OH YEAH---TACOFINO!”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

My main wish is this food truck was closer than 3000 miles! Hidden away in the back of a gravel-roaded shopping "center" alongside the highway, it is sooo good! The bean (veggie) burrito was a nice meal in itself. Lots of atmosphere, some outside seating but a MUST eat when in Tofino. If you like mexican food, don't miss Tacofino.

“Stick to fish”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We sought out tacofino after reading the reviews here. We enjoyed our meal but it did not live up to the hype. We had to wait quite a long time. My husband's fish taco was tasty and substantial but my beef one lacked filling - meat and vegetables were sparse. Making any complaint about the lack of filling was impossible because the only person who would speak to you was the order taker and there was a long line. Mango and coconut smoothies were absolutely delicious.
