The best tacos on Governors Island in New York City!

The best of governors island

gimme those tacos!



Thank you for Googling Taco Vista, purveyors of the undisputed best tacos on Governors Island and home to one of the best views in New York City! We’ve got it all: Simple yet delicious food, thirst-quenching cocktails, service that is both informed and philosophically sound, a soundtrack that will leave you thinking deep thoughts for days, and did we mention a view that may very well ruin all other views for you ever again, sorry not sorry? Like my mom has always said, why drive all the way to stupid Montauk when you could take a 7 minute boat ride and be steps away from the perfect mini-vacay at Taco Vista?!

Where we’re located

While our beachy vibes may totally scream SoCal to you, we’re actually a LOT closer to where you live than you think! We’re located steps off of the Manhattan ferry drop off point as Soissons Landing (such a fancy name tbh), and just a short walk from the Brooklyn and NYC Ferry drop off points. There’s also a lil’ map below if you wanna plug that into your GPS!

If you’re gonna get all the way out to Governors Island, you might as well do it right! You can also visit Governors Beer Co., a craft beer pop-up with some of our favorite brews on the market! You can check out our current beer menu here, but we also carry a nice selection of canned wines and canned cocktails. If you’re taking the Manhattan ferry, just look for the happy little blue box blasting Wham! on repeat directly next to the landing dock. Come say hey!
