The fish tacos are to die for!!!!!!!!! The seating area is super quaint and reminded us of Europe, we absolutely loved our experience and would return back here if we were back in the area.

Check out this place for the damn best fish tacos in your life. You will start hating your favourite taco restaurant in Canada for small portions and fish with no flavour after tasting theirs!

I was in Mal Pais for my for my daughter's wedding in January. We had fish tacos at Product C. We tried to go back but did not catch them again. Please give me the recipe - it is haunting me and I don't think I will ever be able to go there again. Thank you Rose
