Good food, great service

A lively restaurant overlooking Coal Harbour ; outside seating for a sunny day - it was 29 degrees when we went. Excellent grilled coho salmon and scallops followed by rhubarb and strawberry crumble, also surprisingly excellent. Beer from a local micro-brewery. Staff friendly and efficient.

Great service from the staff. Good advice on portion sizes and what was good to eat. The evening was not rushed and the atmosphere was lively, but not too noisy.

The first impression is of a fun place to eat but you should be aware that it is very (and I mean VERY) noisy. We were six people eating at 6.30pm and it took 45 minutes to take our drinks order and an hour more before our food arrived. When the main course arrived one person had been forgotten and... More

This beautiful restaurant offers stunning views of Coal Harbor and some great seafood too. I eat at the bar and enjoyed some raw oysters, a very fresh kale/quinoa salad, and a nice cocktail, all while talking to some locals who convinced me to stay for the live music. That was a nice added bonus and a cozy little venue for... More

The three of us each enjoyed a great lunch served by Ashley. He was a great server. We sat on the patio under the heaters on a rainy day, but it was very pleasant, regardless of the weather. All of us enjoyed our dishes, served promptly and hot. The drink selections were quite extensive and we enjoyed local beers and... More

We were given a gift certificate for a restaurant group of which Cardero's is a part of. We asked the staff of the hotel we where we were staying and they recommended Cardero's. We made reservations for our second night in Vancouver. We got a table on their outdoor deck with a view of the boat dock and water. Our... More

I enjoyed my birthday dinner at Carderos very much. The view from the patio is beautiful. Friendly service and the food was delicious. I enjoyed the scallops and my husband was in love with the halibut. Probably the best seafood we had on our 10 day vacation and Alaska Cruise. Top notch food, service, and atmosphere

This was our second visit to Cardero's amd we weren't disappointed. There were 5 of us. We shared oysters as an appetizer. For the main course, one had the daily special of seafood trio, one had prawns with a mediterrean salad, one had steak, one had the pork chop and the 5th had the scallops. All dishes were excellent.

Visited here recently as a group of four on a Tuesday evening. It was very busy but our reservation was honoured immediately. A fantastic vibe and buzz about the place. The staff were friendly and very efficient. We had a varied selection from an extensive menu including steaks, pork chops and halibut accompanied by local wine. Each dish was well... More

I ordered the half lobster and it was truly wonderful. I had always wondered what people meant about the sweetness of lobster meat as I had never tasted such sweetness until I dined at Cardero's. I had it served with drawn butter but was surprised how much I enjoyed the lobster just by itself. I also shared the vongole pasta... More
