Never had a fish taco before and now I'm wondering why. The fish so light and crispy, with a crunch from the cole slaw and the fresh tomatoes!! Your view is the straight and the mountains on the other side. Beautiful. SO worth the stop
We stopped by for lunch, for two. We ordered a Baja Fish taco each and a prawn taco to split. The Baja fish tacos were yummy, and were a good size for a lunch portion. The prawn taco was meh, glad we only got one...to split - We'll be back for more fish tacos though. Good enough to repeat and judging from all the cars and people there (it wasn't a long wait) everyone else in the are ogress this is good food and good value.More
This little shack tucked between the highway and the seashore was literally a breath of fresh air. Sitting on a rock or picnic table in the sunshine was a great experience while enjoying a visit to Vancouver Island. The prices were average but the really...fresh homemade food made the experience a great deal. It was obvious that this was a well known spot as there was a continuous stream of customers for take away service. It will be a "must stop" on my next Island trip.More
Our Niece suggested Tidal Tacos a few years ago and we HAVE to stop in for a meal each year when we are on the Island to visit family. There can be a bit of a wait during the busy part of the afternoon, however...it is so worth it!More
Yes the tacos are decent.. not authentic but tasty. However... If youre so busy that it's an hour wait.. which they are not.. you need to either expand or improve. You can rave about fresh all you want but it's maybe the fish and veggies...hardly count.. ok why the chip on my shoulder.. well the wait didn't help. But the chick running the show is.. well miserable. The service is rude, arrogant and crap to say the least for a very basic taco with thousand island dressing that takes a minute and a half to make but 30 plus minutes to get. I'd personally go across the street to insteadMore
From the depths of a tiny shack come tasty tacos for a satisfying picnic on the beach. I do not know how it can be done efficiently in the two person operation to churn out fresh ( maybe not fast) food order by order, but...it seems to be a popular spot. You can bring your own chairs or sit at picnic tables or on the rocks or straddle a wooden structure with a friend. Next time it will be a burrito feast.More
Stoped on the side of the road on the way to Coombs. I had a shrimp burrito and my waive and daughter had a beef and bean taco. The food was very good, fresh and filling. It took a very long time to get our...order but in the end it was worth it.More
You'll find this tiny little shack basically in a beachfront parking lot. It does offer a grassy area with picnic tables and direct access to the beach. Bring your own chairs if you like.
(Some changes to seating & additional condiments due to COVID-19 being...observed).
Everything is made to order and extremely fresh. In fact, they frequently close up early due to running out of fresh ingredients.
Usually open Wednesday-Sunday, Noon-5pm
Cash or e-transfer only
Prices are reasonable and reflect serving sizes
Food is delicious; especially the prawns!
If you order a taco, get 2 you won't regret it. The burritos are bigger.
Also available as a salad or kids taco.
The tacos are very full and VERY messy, almost impossible to hold (request a fork). Not recommended for eating in the car - get the burrito for this!
Be prepared for a long wait time, it is the standard (there's even a sign that says so. 30 min-1 hour). No one seems to mind as the food is worth the wait; enjoy the location in the mean time.
A nice west coast twist on a Mexican taco.More
This is definitely one of my favorite places to eat! If you are hungry, order the burrito as it is larger then the tacos but the tacos are great as well (but order 2 of them to satisfy your hunger). My favorite is the baja...fish but the chicken is also great.
Amazing views of the ocean where you can typically eat at a picnic table or sit in chairs you bring yourself. Amazing food and amazing ambiance!
My only complaint is that this place is typically not prepared for the volume of food that they provide. There have been several instances of me trying to take friends and family and travelling over 45 minutes to get there only to find out they are out of food (during opening hours). Twice they were out of fish, once out of fish and chicken, and twice where they were closed altogether during opening hours due to running out of food. There is no phone number to call in advance to ensure you are not wasting your time and resources to go there.
All and all I still crave Tidal TacoMore
