Our first day in Vancouver and we went for a walk along the Seawall, we decided to eat at Cardero's as it looked very welcoming. We weren't disappointed! The food was great, great menu, friendly and knowledgeable staff and fair pricing. I would definitely go back for seconds!

This was our first time at Cardero's Restaurant and it did not disappoint us either. Both food and service was impeccable. Especially our server of the night, Ashley. He was very caring and had high quality service skills. As an industry professional, Cardero's had definitely exceeded my expectations. I will for sure recommend this to others as well as come...

We ate much here with friends and Cardero's was EXCELLENT! Since it was a perfect September day we ate outside which was a very nice atmosphere. All four of us enjoyed our meals, in particular the salmon. Our waiter was very knowledgable about all the selections on the menu and was able to answer all our questions. If we ever... More

We had a lovely evening here, sat outside on the deck, overlooking coal harbour. Our waiter was really friendly and fun, the food was superb, the scallops I had were amazing. I would recommend booking before hand as gets very busy, certainly worth a visit!

This is an excellent restaurant with great views of the sports marina. The weather accompanied us in our visit to Vancouver and we stumbled across this restaurant in a stroll around the waterfront . All choices are excellent. the fish could not be fresher and the service could not be better.

A view of the seaplanes taking off and landing, the yachts in the marina, Stanley Park and the North Shore Mountains...what could be better? This is a wonderful spot to soak it all up, and have a fantastic meal on top of it. The restaurant accommodated a group of 8 of us on short notice, giving us a table where... More

We got to Vancouver and wandered down to the waterfront, totally jet lagged after our flight from Scotland. We didn't have a reservation but they were able to give us a table or we could sit at the bar. We chose to sit at the bar. I had the loveliest salmon dish I think I've ever had - I didn't... More

I love this place that hasn't changed for years. You know exactly what to expect, no unpleasant surprises. The location is great and the lounge is a wonderful meeting place for friends and family, especially when you can score a seat by the fireplace with the responsibility to keep adding the firewood. The patio is beautiful as is the view.... 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.
