Great Place to Sit by the Water and Have a Beer!

Visited Cardero's for Sunday lunch. Sat at a table by the water- it was wonderful. I was dining alone and felt very comfortable. My server was excellent. Had a beer, some clam chowder and fish tacos-terrific. A lovely setting to enjoy a great lunch!

Walking the waterfront between Canada Place cruise terminal and Stanley Park we found Cardero`s . The sunny day prompted an outside table, with a view of parked yachts and seaplane take off & landings. We chose in season pacific halibut and local Stanley Park beer. The fish was cooked to perfection .A simple satisfying meal with good informative service .... More

Well-prepared fresh local fish - Cardero's delivers good value and great choice. We were a group of 10 for dinner, so the ambient noise we were contributing to wasn't a problem. This is not perhaps the best choice for a quiet, romantic diner, as they use a ship's bell to signal that a table is available. Our server was knowledgeable,... More

We called in for lunch and enjoyed it so much we returned for dinner the same night! The food and service were excellent! We also enjoyed the live music. The location is lovely as well, being a very easy and enjoyable walk along the waterfront promenade.

This restaurant belongs in the family of a few others that are all located in incredible spots (Sandbar Granville island , Seasons in the Park etc...) but the food is just ok. I give it 4 stars because I had so much fun with my friends that the food didn't really matter - but - I would not go there... More

This place is right on the water in Coal Harbour. It has great views of the bay, Stanley Park and the sea planes coming in. You are surrounded by beautiful yachts. Simpy a lovely spot to eat. The food is not fabulous, but not bad. I had a "salmon burger" that was a grilled piece of salmon on a very... More

The food never disappoints. The mussels appetizer is a must for our family. The ever changing trio of seafood specials are a favorite. For the carnivore who needs meat there are various choices, ribs, steaks, pork. The ribs and steaks have both been sampled and have been re ordered. Service is friendly, attentive, and efficient. The view is great! A... More

My wife and I were staying at the Fairmont Waterfront. For a nearby seafood restaurant, our doorman suggested Cardero's. It was an easy 15-minute walk along the waterfront. It was a Friday evening and understandably packed inside. Fortunately the doorman called ahead and made a reservation for us, so we were seated almost immediately upon arrival. We shared a half-dozen... More

We visited Cardero's after a trip to Stanley Park during our stay in Vancouver. We didn't have a reservation but we were quickly seated with no problems, it was mid afternoon. We opted to sit in the restaurant side of the pub, there is also a lounge style side and both enjoy great views of the harbour. The food was... More
