The restaurant is lovely. Service is good and food is excellent. Try the shrimp cocktail. Oldie but a goodies. The seafood chowder is amazing. Every dish is so wonderful. The patio is terrific with great views. Love stopping here first

After a leisurely afternoon sat roadside at The Water Street Cafe, we strolled along the harbour front to Cardero's.....a perfect late afternoon location for a fresh bite to eat. Even without a reservation, we were seated quickly on the outside terrace, making the most of the early evening sun. A fantastic wine list and superb menu, beautifully explained by our... More

Love going to Cardero's. Another Restaurant that we frequent pretty much every time we are in Vancouver. Love the location, waterfront, surrounded by wonderful yachts and lots of hustle and bustle. Great service and the food is not bad either. Middle of the road menu which is what we tend to enjoy. You can eat either in the dining room... More

We had a late and slightly boozy lunch here on Sunday afternoon. They have a solid wine list, with lots of local BC choices. The fresh oysters were great, although having more than one variety would be an improvement. I had the catch of the day, a halibut entrée, and it was delightful. Great patio, great service.

Cardero's patio is hard to beat!. We had a leisurely lunch here on our last day in Vancouver and it was excellent. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. My husband had a burger and said it was the best he had had in a long time. I went with the salmon burger and it was fresh and tasty. We will... More

The deck in this place is really the area to eat in this place. There is no happy hour here unlike many of the other restaurants in Vancouver - guess they feel they can attract the tourists with out it. Prices are a little on the high side - but food is good quality - not outstanding. Service can be... More
