This restaurant was highly recommended by our whale watching tour (Legacy Charters). It was a little hidden from the street but a great find. The tacos were awesome and the portion size was a lot (included beans and rice). The only negative was trying to...More

We were almost reluctant to try this restaurant as it's a Mexican restaurant in a town that should be 'mainly good in seafood' (and we are from Texas..) but it was great! We were pleasantly surprised with the great flavors. Would recommend if you want...More

My son and I had lunch at Pablitos and it was great. The fish tacos were especially outstanding, but everything was really good. I also like the grapefruit soda. The fixins bar had some interesting toppings and salsas to finish off a great taco.

Very close to the ferry, down a small alley, lots of selections, very fair prices, will go back on my next visit to Friday Harbour

My husband and I were not impressed with Pablito's. $19 for two smallish enchiladas and rice and beans? Definitely not worth it. Enchiladas were just okay and rice and beans didn't have much flavor. We did like the chips and salsa.

And the margaritas were terrific too. I think we have pretty good Mexican food in California...turns out it's not as good as in Friday Harbor. A local suggested we try this place, and I am forever grateful. Food was excellent, innovative and happily received.
