Why you should eat here: -The view of harbor is lovely -The waitstaff was friendly and accommodating -Pretty good food/menu (fish tacos are good here) Why maybe not... -There is better cuisine throughout the city if you are a foodie. Final thought: Pop in for a local brew and cup of clam chowder to watch the boats in the harbor.

Cardero's is right on the water surrounded by boats. The food is excellent and the service backs it up. Had the grilled scallops and a fresh Caesar salad and they were fantastic!

Nice terrace on the water with heating, so you can sit outside much of the year. The service was very good and food was superb.

Food is good but the main attraction is the atmosphere. Great view of the harbour. I would return, especially to sit on the patio.

My wife and I arrived around 215 this afternoon when the restaurant was far from busy. We were seated immediately next to the window along the marina, which was lovely. We enjoyed the pan fried oysters, which were perfectly cooked. For main courses we had scallops, and the "special" salmon with dill sauce. Both were unremarkable, and in fact, we... More

Pub style decor, busy place with a mix of clientele. Good menu with nice choices, mostly fishy. Dishes were really good quality. Service was good if a little stretched. Good value night out. There is a patio which would be nice in the summer.

This was recommended to us by family. Very well frequented so booking is advisable. Built on stilts over the sea in the harbour, it is a bustling place but amazingly well organised. The service is excellent and the extensive and varied menu makes selecting a meal difficult! As you'd expect, fish features extensively on the bill of fare and I... More

Cardero's was recommended by a business colleague. Situated overlooking a marina, it's an open style restaurant with a patio on the water. It seemed an eclectic mix of patrons were there, from the rich and trendy Porsche-driving couple, to the 6 business men at the next table, to the bachelorettes get-together, to the families with young children. Our young server... More
