On the water and close to downtown-perfect for lunch or dinner

Great location and great service on the water. We had the pleasure of watching a huge rain storm pass us by while enjoying the calamari and New England claim chowder. Nice bar selection and an awesome fireplace to relax next too

So many years after my first visit, Carderos still continues to deliver unpretentious, delicious, tasty food wthbgreat value for money. As my handle suggests I have a preference for grazing small plates and Cardero's offers great opportunity in that regard; however they certainly offer awider range of dishes, with a clear bent on seafood.

Stunning location - it doesn't get more beautiful or 'Vancouver' than Carderos. Lots of options including seafood, hand tossed pizza and gourmet burgers. Located off the sea wall so you can enjoy a sunset walk after dinner. Great for business lunches - upscale but fast.

There are so many great restaurants in Vancouver however Cardero's has the ambience and the view!! Staff are friendly, food is good and of course many seafood options. If you truly want to enjoy the coastal experience this is a wonderful spot to spend some time. Be aware though at peak hours, quite busy and noise level is high.

Great location in the midst of the marina in downtown Vancouver and good views, especially from the outdoor terrace. The service was excellent and the food was excellent too. However, it bills itself as a fish restaurant but the selection of fish was rather sparse. What we had was excellent (shellfish trio for me and cedar plank salmon for my... More

As my title says,........the food was, well, ok I guess. Not great though. Great location however, very good. I'd probably recommend it for a burger and beer before the hockey or some other event.
