Taco shop

Tiny taco shop located on Margate Harbour Arm. 



Following super fun kitchen takeovers at Mala Kaffe in August of 2019 and a Halloween party at Hantverk & Found in October, Dive went on the hunt for a space of our own. 


We were ecstatic to secure a space on Margate’s Harbour Arm in January 2020. Margate based design studio VACUUM sourced materials and fitted out our Tiny Taqueria. Grand plans for private dinner parties, outside seating and margaritas in the sun were unfortunately derailed by the development of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have had to adapt and completely transform our business model, adios cozy, elbow to elbow sit-down dining, hello ultra-contemporary website ordering and contactless collection.


Following the most recent Government Guidelines we look forward to offering seated, outdoor dining from July 4th. We will be open Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays with sights on adding more days as and when we feel ready. We will operate strictly by reservation, bookable via our website, with a £1 booking fee that will go directly to the RNLI as it has over the course of our Sunday Collection Service, we had to increase the fee from 50p to £1 as the website wont accept payments under £1. Our menu is designed to be transportive in a time where travel isn’t so easy. Ceviches like you would find on the Baja Peninsula, our Carnitas are heavily inspired by ONDA in Los Angeles, the Fish Tacos are a riff on the Fish a la Talla from Contramar in Mexico City and our Cadillac Margaritas hail from the cook’s birthplace; San Antonio, Texas.


Our tortillas are bought it, everything else is made in-house. Meat is outdoor reared and high welfare, fish is supplied from Fruits de Mer in Broadstairs, or directly from fishermen on the harbour…if we are lucky.



Please email or DM us on instagram with any feedback, menu suggestions or just for a chat.



We look forward to seeing you soon.




Thank you for your support!
