We got right in even though there was a crowd waiting to be seated. We learned they all wanted outside seating. Dinner and our waitress was amazing! We ordered the salmon and the halibut and they were wonderful! We stayed at the Westin Bayshore next door which was only a two minute walk.

We had a table on the deck. Service was good and prices reasonable. My wife and I shared two different appetizer plates (fried oysters and shrimp dumpling?) and they were tasty.

The location in coal harbour is fabulous. We were on the deck in the sunshine. Our waiter was fantastic - personable, attentive, great timing. Our after-dinner tea and coffee took a while to materialize - the restaurant was packed to capacity on a weeknight. We went for an early dinner, I think if we were arriving at any other time,...

A group of 5 of us decided to try Cardero's for the first time and on the first day of Dine Out Vancouver. I will definitely be back in the summer for drinks on the patio! For the $28 dinner menu I was pretty impressed about the quality of the food. I ordered: 1. Tomato Bocconcini Salad vine ripened tomatoes,... More

Add this place to your go-to patio list for enjoying nice days outdoors with good company and great food. This used to be my secret choice for oysters but also quite high on my list of favorites is the Mussels in coconut curry sauce with Asian herbs: try it, love it! PS. The waterfront ambiance is perfect for romantic date... More

The location is awesome. Patio seating has a nice atmosphere. With heating lamps it is cozy outside regardless of the temperature. There was a lineup at the opening time. Friendly and informed staff. Now for food. A cup of Manhattan chowder was mostly vegetables with a trace of potatoes in a tomato broth. Very good. Veggies still crunchy, not too... More

Visited with family and enjoyed steak, salmon and a home prepared burger between us. Despite being busy, we didn't wait long for the food and it was nicely presented when it came.

We have been to Cardero's a few times and have been pleased every time. It is very busy and you can see why it is. The wait staff is well trained and good. The food is good but not fancy. Eating outside is great!

I went to this restaurant with my wife according to the recommendation of the visitor guide and it did not disappoint us. We tried the halibut, lobster and scallop which are all fresh and taste good. and the staff were very nice. We enjoyed a pleasant lunch there with sea view. There was a bar area which was broadcasting the... More
