Located at the marina at Coal Harbour in downtown Vancouver, this character laden eatery, with an outdoor heated deck is nestled in a marina filled with boats of dreams. Food is well prepared, from a large and varied menu, that has meals arriving promptly, and served by competent and friendly staff. Very relaxing, with wonderful views to entertain.

Carderos was exactly what we were after. Low key, great ambiance, unpretentious. Food was excellent; fresh oysters and seafood & lamb pops cooked to perfection. Good wine selection too.

Back in Vancouver I had to go and enjoy Cordero's again as last time was over 6 years ago. Well, it did not disappoint and the service and food are still as great as ever. I ordered a simple spinach and walnut salad and the dressing was perfect, and this was followed by a delicious sablefish that melted in the... More

Waterfront Brewery type atmosphere on one side, fine dining restaurant on the other and out door deck for sunny days. The best salmon we have ever tasted. Fresh Alaskan is heavenly. Service was excellent, we ate there at least twice a day. Great menu with choices for all tastes. Excellent Canadian red wines available at very reasonable prices

We had not booked for dinner but that was not a problem, we were shown to the bar and informed there would be a wait for dinner, that didn't bother us, we were given a... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
