Went to this place with a coworker. He had been there before and recommended it. The seafood was very good and the atmosphere was quite nice. Great location by the water in the harbor. Service was very good. Overall very good, but I would not say "excellent" but it came close!

Conveniently located near the convention center, this is a cosy restaurant on the water at the harbor. Menu is diverse enough that everyone should be able to find something they like. However, my wife was a bit disappointed there was not main course involving shrimp. The service is superb. My (adult) daughter loved the mac and cheese sidekick. Definitely try... More

This place came highly recommended but we found it very noisy and very trendy. It was if people came to be seen. I don't think they came for the food. Don't bother going if your looking for good food.

This is a fantastic restaurant right in Coal Horbour, a view to take your breath away. The food is the best seafood I have ever had, the fresh oysters are fabulous. The salmon and the halibut for lunch, again the best. We were in Vancouver for five days and we went twice and we would have went back again if... More

Second visit in 2 years to Cardero's. Great place, low key, buzzy and fun. Wonderful food (salmon is the best I have ever eaten) superb beer and wines and impeccable service. If you can get a table on the patio the view of the marina and the mountains is amazing. Brilliant place

Service was superb. We were a group of 10, no reservation and seated within 10 minutes with what appeared to be a full restaurant! Oysters were good, the special soup was good and the cedar plank salmon was good also. Others in the group liked the salads and pasta dishes. Very good value in a great location on the marina.

Cardero's is an institution between downtown and Stanley Park. If you are lucky enough to get a table with a window, enjoy the view while you have a drink and sample some of their excellent Wok Squid! Very popular for lunch or after work so make sure you send someone early to get a table.

Great service, location, ambience and most importantly...seafood! I had the Wild Coho Salmon which was done perfectly. The scallops were prepared and served to a very high standard, the shrimp sublime! No idea of the prices (company funded), but I would be prepared to pay a little extra for this kind of quality and location.

My wife and I took a friend to Cardero's who had never been to Vancouver before, so choosing the right restaurant was very important. Near his hotel at Canada Place it was a nice walk along the seawall and into the restaurant with views of a marina and parts of Stanley Park and the North Shore mountains. Lighting and atmosphere...

Cardero's looks lovely from the outside, and from the inside looking out. Inside we found it quite noisy and dark, but everyone seemed to be having a good time and so, in the main, did we. Service was slow to start with. We were hungry and had hoped for a really good experience, so were underwhelmed by the merry banter... More
