Nothing captures the laid-back spirit of the West Coast better than rolling surf and beach-side eats – and that’s exactly how it started for Tacofino!

What began as a food truck in the back parking lot of a Tofino surf shop has now grown to encapsulate multiple restaurant locations across Vancouver. This popular taco bar is all about blending a well-travelled palette with down-to-earth roots. Each bite is designed to transport you to a beach-side escape where the sun is shining, and the vibes are always right. Its bold flavour meets back alley BBQ with local ingredients all wrapped up in a delicious tortilla.

The result is mouth-watering comfort food that shines best when paired with local beer and good company – and it’s about to reach a whole new level.

Coming off the high of last year, Tacofino is bringing back its much-loved Brewery Dinner Series from September 2023 to March 2024.
