Best fish tacos ever. So very worth the wait. Yes, even in the rain. In the cold. Super friendly guy at the order window. Superb food. I risk triggering food sensitivities for this, it's so good. A highlight every time we come to enjoy tthis breathtaking part of the world. We hope to be back. Soon.

First visit I tried the Tuna Taco and a pork gringas. The former was fresh and full of flavor and texture, the latter was tasty, crispy, cheesy, melty. Only disappointment was that they were sold-out of the spicy chocolate Diablo Cookie, so we returned for a second dinner a few days later. It was worth it!!

I wasn’t expecting there to be a line up....and a continual stream of customers thereafter....on a Tuesday in mid February, at 4:30 pm in a driving rainstorm, but there was. After eating our fish tacos, I now know why. From Angus, the friendly surfer dude taking the orders, to the amazingly efficient guy and girl preparing the food, this place... More

Actually turned into this little outside mall to eat at another place until we saw the line for TacoFino and wanted to know what all the fuss was about, we ordered up the crispy chicken taco, I ate half for dinner cause it was so huge - ate the second half next day at the hot springs - almost better...
