“Great spot for a quick bite or a longer stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

I dropped in here with a friend for a late Sunday lunch on a Sunday. It has a great and relaxed atmosphere, with indoor and outdoor seating. Outdoor is recommended (weather permitting) as it has a great view of the harbour. The bar area is comfortable with friendly service. The restaurant has a good range of meals, coming quickly even though busy. The salmon was very special!

“So good we returned the next night......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Good food, good service and excellent atmosphere. First night was by chance and went back for a 2nd night. This can sometimes be a mistake but here it was even better. Maybe the best steak I have ever had!

“Top notch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Ten my wife and I had dinner here and were totally impressed by the food and service. We finally found ourselves back in Vancouver and could not wait to have dinner here. We had such high expectations and were not disappointed. The best service, the best food and fantastic decor. The cedar plank salmon is to die for. Our waiter Ryan was outstanding. This is undoubtably one of our best meals and experiences ever.

“"Great location and good food"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We were finishing up our 6 weeks of holidays traveling around Canada and Alaska with a 3 night stay in Vancouver. Staying at the Westin Bayshore hotel we were only a stones throw from Cardero's which was highly recommended by friends. We had lunch and dinner there during our stay and were pleased by both meals but I don't believe the food is as good as other places throughout BC that we visited. The location of the restaurant is second to none and the atmosphere it projects is first class.It has a beautiful bar area with some very comfy sofas which would be the way we would prefer to use next time rather than the restaurant seating

“Great restaurant with magnificent view near downtown Vancouver!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

My wife and I spent two days in Vancouver following an Alaska cruise. Not knowing the city, we asked hotel staff for restaurant recommendations. Cardero's was at the top of their list. The facility is located on a dock overlooking a yacht basin just a few blocks from downtown. We elected to be seated outside with a view of the harbor and some beautiful sailboats and yachts.
The restaurant had a nice menu with something for everyone. My wife chose the salmon and I selected the scallops. Both meals were generously portioned, well prepared and tasty. Service was attentive without being overdone. Definitely a wonderful dining experience!
