Two tacos, beans and chips were a super lunch. The fish in the taco was the best. Just a short distance before you get to Town Center. This is a don’t miss place.

Best lunch of the trip to us! Loved the fish tacos!! So much we went two days in a row! We thought the service was terrific. Just a one woman show but managed everything so smoothly and so friendly. Take a stop and enjoy! Aloha!

We're happy a lifelong resident recommended Tropical Taco to us. Fresh fish cooked to order. The fish and chips were hot and delicious. The casual and exceptionally clean seating area was really nice too.

Shared a massive plate of two fish tacos which came with a side of tortilla chips and beans. Both were equally delicious and came in a very large size, perfect for two to share!

There's a reason this café is always jammed- good food and lots of it! We noticed the fish taco servings were very generous and decided to order one order to share....good decision! The generous serving was more than enough lunch for the two of us....More

One of our favorite spots for lunch, quick and easy service, sometimes pretty busy but that is a good thing as it means the food is excellent which it is. Try the fish taco, that is really good...

I had the beer battered fish tacos and they were great. There was outside and indoor dinning. They were a little slow in getting the food to the table but it was made fresh to order.
