We stopped for a quick bite at Tacofino as we had already eaten and had dinner plans too. We just heard great things about the yam taco and couldn’t avoid it. It did not disappoint. The yam tempura was juicy, seasoned and delectable. The crunch from the cabbage paired with the acidity from the coleslaw really brought it all together. The tortilla was nice and grilled so the attention to detail was clear. We did have to wait a while but not cause of lack of effort. They had 4 to 5 people on the taco burrito assembly line constantly preparing orders. It was very organized and appeared clean. The staff was really friendly and we can’t wait to come back for a steak taco and/or their breakfast.

A must try in Victoria! Very attentive staff but very little space to sit inside. That said, the food is outstanding. We sampled the pork burrito and fried yam tacos and they were spectacular! Highly recommended for a quick lunch.

Can you ever go wrong with Tacofino? Absolutely not. I've been to the Tacofino Ocho and Gastown (religiously) and I can never curb my craving for their tacos.

Having a chance to come to the Victoria location was a treat, especially since they're open till 11 pm. Staff were very friendly and service was quick (though your mileage may vary during peak hours).

10/10 would take a trip and make time on Tuesday for tacos anytime

This place was on my must check out list during my trip to Victoria and it didn’t disappoint!!
I had a fried fish and a steak taco and both were delicious!!! The proteins were cooked to perfection and the tacos were just enough loaded that it had flavour punch without melting the taco shell/tortillas!
Super quick turnaround time! The place was a little noisy but that’s not a big deal.

Eating at Tacofino on Canada day was a awesome experience!
It was my first visit & the employees created a terrific vibe. It was so keen to watch the employee prepare the burrito 🌯! It was a very satisfying meal. Burrito was a bit messy to eat hence why napkins are in abundance.

I definitely will return to this restaurant.

So damn good 🤤

Nice vibes in a convenient spot downtown for some killer Mexican food. The offerings might not be “authentic” but they’re reaaaaally good - get over it. Loved everything I had here, and even the margarita delivered! Hot sauces have my mouth-watering at the memory of them…

Definitely a spot I’ll be coming back to!

Incredible Tacos!
Found myself pulled here by my sister while visiting her this weekend. Popped in line (there often is a short line I hear), and had our order taken, then delivered shortly thereafter. A number tag and bottle of water with a cute blue cap is handed to me before we head to our table. The server recommended the crispy chicken taco. My sister swore to me that the steak taco was the best I’d ever have. The former was great, but the latter was indeed true. Get a steak taco.
Bonus points for local Phillips Brewery on tap. Modern aesthetic and low key vibe brought it all together.
Highly recommend checking this place out.
