My husband and I went to dinner there at the recommendation of the concierge at our hotel as we were interested in dinner and listening to jazz or blues. While the waiter was very attentive, that is about the best I can say. It was so noisy that it was impossible to hear the music at all! My husband had... More

This is a unique little joint built on stilts over the water with nice long patio with gorgeous views of harbour and mountains, great bar/lounge area and large indoor dining section. It's busy most evenings so you may need to wait for your table in the bar section but they have a cute way of notifying you when your table... More

My boyfriend and I recently moved to the West End, and I have been dropping a lot of not so subtle hints about going for dinner at Cardero's. Yesterday he surprised me with a Valentine's dinner reservation, and my high hopes for the restaurant were completely exceeded. Our server, Toby, was amazing right from the beginning. He brought us tasters... More

We had a group out on the patio Friday night and Stuart was one of our 2 servers. He was great. He kept us all laughing and enjoying the food and drinks. He was efficient and knowledgeable and very personable too. Thanks for the great food and laughs.

This is our "Go To" place for waterfront view, good food, great staff and live music (in the Lounge). We have never been disappointed with food. Highly recommended the "Wok Squid" (calamari) as an appetizer.

Truly enjoyed our meal at Cardero's. Service was excellent - attentive, informative & when we were finding it hard to choose our wine & our waitress Adriana was very patient ; ) It's refreshing to eat a meal with the food cooked so perfectly - amongst our group we ordered steak, salmon & seared tuna & all were as hoped...

This is a beautiful location in Vancouver's Coal Harbour, right next to the Westin Bayshore and walkable to Stanley Park. It has a great rustic seafaring ambience and a cozy lounge area. However, despite its location and decor, the food is very run of the mill and my order often comes out cold or with something missing or wrong. Service... More

Went for Dine Out Vancouver and had loved it. I am not a seafood lover, but will try some. I had Manhattan clam chowder and the Cedar Plant salmon. Wow that was great and would have again. Dessert was carrot cake that I don't see on their regular menu but tasty. Service was good, nice selection of wine. I recommend... 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.
