Enjoyed a couple of hours on a deck in late afternoon. Sunny and calm space. Ahhhhhh.
We visit every few years when on vacation with family. It never disappoints!!
Delicious food and excellent service. Best restaurant in Vancouver!
We came here for my birthday dinner, I had sablefish my husband had striploin. The dishes were okay but was not spectacular. We didn’t get to sit at the patio but we were seated by the window at the lounge side.
Cardero’s is the place to go in Vancouver to bring your out of town guests for delicious seafood, great service and a beautiful seaside atmosphere. Definitely one of Vancouver’s finest spots
Service was great, view was great. The food was ok, nothing special. We had drinks, appies, Steak w. prawns , Tuna Avocado salad & dessert. Nothing really made me say “this was amazing!” But it was still good & the prices were reasonable. Just felt like I could have had the same meal anywhere.
We had an amazing experience at carderos! The service was above and beyond and the food was delicious!! We will definitely be back again
Disappointed there is no longer bread for the table. Everything else was still as good as my previous visits.
Excellent casual dining with incredible views
Our server was very good, the food was good but it missed the ambiance that we had previously since we were in the middle of the restaurant in a 4 seater table. We were at the window last time and it made the experience so much better. We had the shrimp cocktail to start but the sauce was very plain and not as tangy/horseradish as I’d prefer. The manager tried to accommodate but it wasn’t as good as I’d like. Our meals were good though.
I had the sablefish and I think it’s the best meal I’ve ever had at a restaurant. Awesome service and awesome food! Will definitely be back.
Great spot with awesome views. Love making a meal out of their fantastic appetizers!
I have been going to Cardero’s for over 25 years!! Every single time it has been outstanding! Top shelf all the way! We had Mike as our server that day, and he was excellent! Truly, always a remarkable experience!!
Great casual place for a nice dinner with amazing views. Food is always fresh and delicious. Very professional service. Noise was very loud due to other patrons and many small screaming children which is outside of the restaurants control.
Birthday dinner for the most deserving husband in the world ❤️
Loved the setting, food was phenomenal and service was more than on time. I will definitely return here, our server was very friendly too. He went above and beyond 🙂
Wish I could reserve a table on the patio
The shrimp dumplings and seafood trio were delicious
On arrival at opening, very odd that (seemingly inexperienced) host was seating people without a reservation before those of us who had them -- just because they were in line first. Once seated, very professional server and nice gazpacho soup; sangria on the other hand was rather watery. Sad that even on a holiday Monday they wouldn't serve a brunch menu -- we were not the only people surprised by that decision. Still a great view and comfortable outdoor seating option.
The food is top rate and the location is great on the water.
We enjoyed all: food great and was more than expected so had rest for dinner next day; service was great and enjoyed where we sat looking out window; we’ll spaced and no worry about virus there.Thanks.
Was good. Server was great. Will be going back again.
From start to finish the customer service was amazing. I left a comment prior to our meal that it was my boyfriends birthday and it didn’t go unnoticed! Our table had a beautiful view of the harbour to add to our experience. The food was delicious and the dessert was the icing on the cake (literally) - We even got an added dessert for the occasion! We will definitely be back thanks again.
Food and service outstanding. Ambiance not so much. Place is in dire need of a refresh. Frankly I was expecting more. I would go again and dress down. Very casual.
I understand the current climate is unforeseen but I have been to quite a few restaurants since lock down has eased and they have done an amazing job adapting to the new way of business. How ever Cardero's have a long way to go to improve customer experience.
I've been here many times before and this visit was most disappointing. I had requested the patio as it was a special occasion, my friends fair well meal. We were seated in the bar.... at a dirty table that the server had to ask us to step aside while they had the chance to clean it. Over looking this it then took our server 15 minutes to take our order another 15 to bring drinks and then we were left for over 20 mins before our food order was taken. The food took for ever to come and was luck warm when it finally did. At this point we had been in there for over an hour and a half.
The bill came to $110 for one glass of wine and 2 substandard main courses. I will not be returning to eat here any time soon as so many more establishments have gone above and beyond to welcome back their customers, making them feel safe, welcome and valued. Cardero's really missed the mark - I'm extremely disappointed as this was one of my favorite places.
Although the restaurant was located right by the water We could not get a patio seat so sat inside and it was incredibly warm inside- Almost too long to be enjoyable to eat.
One of the best spots in Vancouver! Great food and excellent service
Service was AMAZING! The quality of the food was very good! We had the truffle fries as appetizers. They were very tasty. For main course i had the halibut which was very good and well cooked. The rice wasn't so great but in general very good plate. My boyfriend had the sirloin steak with a salad and a lobster tail. The steak was outstanding. The lobster tail was good but very small. We also had Caesars before dinner. Probably the best Caesar I’ve ever had! We sat on the patio with a view of the marina it was beautiful. Overall amazing restaurant
I love Cardero’s! The place is so cozy and the service was really good. The staff were enthusiastic and they accommodated us very well. I love the view too. I would definitely come back!
Lunch on the patio.
Gorgeous day, fantastic, safe service
All the staff are very helpful and the food is awesome!!
Great service, and food was top notch. Amazing view, but a bit pricey.
Came for an anniversary dinner and could not have left any happier with our experience! Our waitress Maria was super sweet, personable, and extremely helpful in ensuring our night was amazing. Food was fresh and hot, and the limited edition lemon ice pie is to die for - definitely one of my favourite desserts ever. Maria even told the chef it was our anniversary, who then came out to deliver a personalized message on our dessert. Great experience!
Travis made the afternoon, great service and great food!
22 year wedding anniversary dinner , it was a nice dinner , food was great and service was great. I had added in comments anniversary dinner , wish table could have been a better location.
Great service and food!
Was a very nice evening. Staff were nice and following safety requirements.
My daughters 34th birthday!
The best part of my experience was the view and service. The food was adequate. First had the burrata salad, the burrata was watery. Next my friend ordered the soup which was suppose to be the red chowder, but it came as cream chowder and she has specially said she did not want that. Then ordered the meatballs which were ok, followed by the sweet and sour chicken, it was terrible. The desert was a special and that was excellent! I was so disappointed because Cardero’s has always been one of my favourites. Maybe I’ll give them another chance!
