This place has a great atmosphere with a nice view of Coal Harbour. The service of the staff was friendly, professional and very attentive. I ordered grilled scallops, sock-eye salmon and crème Brulee dessert. This was the best seafood meal I have ever had. Must dine here when in downtown Vancouver.

Great atmosphere! We sat outside and it was perfect. Service was wonderful and food was amazing. We had the Cardero's salad with Ahi on top and it was perfect. Our son had the kids spaghetti and loved it...not a tiny portion either! Can't wait to come back!

You can't beat the setting - right on Coal Harbor. The views are amazing. The food was quite good. The service was a little lacking - friendly, but not very attentive. Regardless, I would gladly go back for another lovely evening.

We were celebrating a family event and chose Carderos. The server we had was excellent, gave us time to visit, and order, and enjoy the evening. Our meals were superb and I would highly recommend this location for anyone going to Vancouver. You won't be disappointed. Reservations are a must if you are restricted for time. Every table has a...

Great spot right on the harbor. Can't beat the views, we only had the fish taco appetizer as we came just for some drinks while enjoying the view, they were good, not the best, but worth it. They also have live music every night.

Service on both nights was excellent, friendly and efficient . Food was really good, fresh and tasty, especially liked the fish taco,s. Live music each... More

We enjoyed supper last night on the deck overlooking the harbour and mountains. The views were spectacular, the food delicious. Super friendly staff and decent prices made this a very positive experience.

We have been fans of Carderos for many years. It works for us as a venue for a family gathering, a quick drop in meal, or a special evening out when friends are in town. Service and food are always consistent and we always enjoy people watching the mix of tourists, business travellers and locals who dine here. Depending on... More

The food was disappointing considering the price of the steak dinner. The service was as good as the meal!

I had a marguerite pizza which was perfect. The service is wonderful everyone was friendly and professional. The only draw back is there is only... More
