Went there with friends and I am amazed at the quality of the food. Humus was right on the dot, the steak / halibut were just to kill for.

Presentation is highly trimmed / standardized, no creativity on that front, but clean and interesting, brought the flavor to my nostrils as if it was targeting them.

The choice of wine is reasonable and pretty much all their food goes spotless with the Ripasso (Tomassi family).

Remarkable and friendly service, not a single mistake. Spotless.

Lovely position sitting over the water at the harbour. The service was very good and the selection offered was excellent.

Would certainly recommend this restaurant to those visiting the area.

Next to our hotel, we wandered in. 30 minutes to get a table isn't bad without a reservation, & we could walk the boardwalk along the Bay as a great way of passing the time. The service was good, food well done, & the patio was great! What a view!

Two of us discovered Carderos on a recent trip to Vancouver and we're so pleased that we went. One of the best meals we had in the city. It was really busy, and as we didn't have reservations we weren't sure we would get seated, but were quickly offered seats outside on the heated patio. Each chair had an additional blanket in case it got chilly. (We didn't use them but it was a nice touch ) The food and service were fantastic. We paired the meal with a Quails Gate Gewurztraminer white wine - nectar! We ate prawn dumplings and fish tacos for starters, following with stirfried prawns and eggfried rice, and a glazed salmon with veggies. All absolutely delicious. The pastas and pizzas being delivered to tables around us also looked really good. We would definitely book to go to Carderos again when returning to Vancouver.
