The view overlooking the water is spectacular. There was a live band playing . The food was excellent , service was amazing and the wine was reasonably priced. The nicest part was that I could walk along the sea wall to my hotel in one direction, and to Stanley Park in the other direction. Location was fantastic. Looking forward to... More

I feel bad about giving this highly-rated restaurant such a dismal review, but I went there with several friends some months ago and had a disappointing experience. First, our server dropped a tray of drinks on one of us (which happens, we understand this, this is not what the problem is), proceeded to apologize, helped cleaning up the mess... then... More

Went last night for a quick casual meal and really enjoyed it. There was live entertainment which was very nice. It was a fellow and his guitar singing Jim Croce type music to hum along to. Really great vibe in the lounge. I had the Wok Prawns which is a Thai Curry with peppers, green beans, prawns and crushed peanuts.... More

I made a reservation for three. The reception was excellent and I was asked if I wanted to sit at my table before my other guests arrived since I was early. I said yes. After a few minutes at my table a young girl approached it and said, "Hi! Do you wanna drink?" I was so shocked I did not... More

Loved everything about this place. Loved the fresh seafood selections, the friendly and knowledgable wait staff and most of all the live music! This place was recommended to us by our concierge at the Westin nearby and they were spot on. They also made another recommendation the night before which we were quite disappointed with, so we were reluctant to... More

Four of us went to Cardero's for lunch on a sunny but cool day. We sat inside, but the light from outside made it bright. Our sderver was excellent, and the food was the best of the three times we've been there. We selected a bunch of different appetizers, as there was not a "Lunch Menu" per se. We had... More

Went with friends to celebrate a birthday! We arrived early for sunset and stayed for almost 4 hours.We had fun eating, drinking and celebrating with friends. My husband and I weren't really hungry so we shared a salad and pizza. Excellent choice! Thin crust pizza served hot with fresh ingredients. Some of our friends had the salmon which they devoured....

This restaurant is located in an excellent location on the water in Coal Harbour in downtown Vancouver. We were there on a Saturday evening and with all places on a Saturday it was busy. There was a wait to get into the restaurant part so we chose to go into the pub side and got a location on the couch... More

This is our second time to Cordero's to enjoy some food and drinks and just hang out. The mussels are so amazing and the drinks even better but the view is what makes it! I would go back again and again. Busy place so reservations are a must if you want the dinning room, bar side it just as good.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
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.
