This is a nice casual spot with good food. There is not a huge menu or large wine selection. We were seated in the center of the room and it was extremely loud. I’m sure we ordered fish, perhaps a special of the evening, but we don’t remember exactly what we ate. The service was a bit rushed, but okay.... More

This was my second visit it will not be my last. I was fortunate to get a metered parking spot right outside the entrance. On entering I found it very busy and was told to wait, one of the servers took my a side and got me a special little table out on the deck overlooking the Coal Harbour, and... More

Cardero's is pretty good, pricey, great location with great views of the Harbour action. But noisy - not condusive to conversation or business transactions. If you're there just for gazing in each other's eyes......go for it.

Good food, great location along the seawall, upscale casual atmosphere, and good service. There is often a bit of a wait, but worth it for the food and beautiful vista!

Full disclosure: This place is just down there road from where I worked for many years and it was a regular destination so it's a bit hard to be objective. Cardero's is located over top of the water in the middle of Coal Harbour Marina. With that in mind, the food could be rubbish and it would still be enjoyable... More

This place is a no brainer for people wanting to eat out in a beautiful setting. Whether you eat inside or outside on the patio you will love this place. Its my most favourite restaurant in the city bar none. Love love love the Ahi Tuna. The BEST in town that is for sure.

The location is beautiful, and if you can nab a seat outside in the summer, then it's with a visit. Otherwise expect to be eating with a) tourists b) stuffy Coal Harbour types c) inside envying those outside As regards to the food, you're paying a premium for the setting, the meal itself (and service) is very average. I'd rather... More

Food and atmosphere was wonderful. Wait staff very friendly and accommodating. Can't complain about the view as it's right on the water, and in our case only a few hundred yards from our hotel! Highly recommend this place...

After a leisurely bike / cycle ride around Stanley Park we were directed to Cardero's for Oysters and seafood - the advice did not disappoint! The Oysters and spicy sauce were soon despatched and followed by Cardero's magnificent Salt and Pepper Squid - absolutely delicious, in fact so much so we ordered and devoured a second portion. Our Kiwi waitress... More

My experience at Cardero's was great. There was a 20 min wait on arrival, but it did not seem too long. The service was great, the food was pretty good, and the view was amazing.
