Location, location, location - great spot it is. If you are finishing off your stroll on the sea wall this is a great spot to spot for lunch or dinner. Not super fancy given the location, but the service was very good. We had oysters, mussels and shared some appetizers etc. I will be going back.

We have walked by this restaurant too many times to count and finally this last time in the city we decided to give it a try! So not disappointed...we had the best lunch outside on their patio enjoying the waterfront view and beautiful sunny day. Food was awesome and the service was even better. Such a helpful server and ever... More

We were staying at the Westin next door and the concierge highly recommended the bar at Carderos. Were looking for a late night bite and brew and boy did we find a good one. Walked in the bar. The atmosphere was dark and cozy, with warm bar decor and fantastic ambient lighting. Tall bar tables down the middle of the... More

Our diverse group wanted seafood, steak and spaghetti, and they had it all! It was rich and warm and tasty, the service was spectacular, and the waterfront view was glorious. The prices were very fair, and our request for a fun, affordable seafood and steak place was truly fulfilled here.

This restaurant was recommended by the Marriott hotel staff and it lived up to my expectations. Although we did not have a reservation the wait for a table was no more than 10 Mins. The waiter was engaging and gave great recommendations on food after discussing what our taste preferences were. The ambient light was set a little low later... More

Stranded in Vancouver I wandered down to the Marina from my hotel. I was a bit disappointed as the Broadwalk seemed pretty dull although there were lots of joggers. No coffee shops or cafes, but there in the distance was Cardero's. It does not look much from the outside, in fact I had to search a bit to find the... More
