Cardero's features great fresh fish in a fun and cozy harbor setting. One of the main draws of coming to a restaurant like this is the opportunity for guests to sit and watch the boats come in and out of the harbor as they dine. In fact, should diners happen to own a boat, they are more than welcome to dock it and make the two-minute walk to Cardero's front door.Cardero's features primarily seafood, given its waterfront location but also offers a wide range of classic west coast cuisine and wok dishes.

In addition to our in house dining, we also offer take-out daily.

Went for thanksgiving dinner. The turkey they served was not meat off the bone- it was a sort of rubbery pressed together white or brown meat into a cylinder shape and sliced. Really off putting- the rest of the meal was good. But will not go back for turkey dinner again.

I eat at Cardero many times. Usually the food is good, and Service is fantastic. Also, we enjoyed the view greatly! However, the recent visit was not that great. The dish I ordered was not as tasty as before. I guess the food quality largely depends on who the chef is that day. Sadly the same food I ordered this time was not as good as on my previous visits.

The food and service was as usually excellent !!!
Had a little problem with the reservation. Reserved table on patio weather permitting-was sunny and 19C or table inside by window if raining. Checked in with hostess 20 min before our reservation time and after all this she giving us a table by the wall.
We asked for the table on patio as it was being cleaned and she told us it was for other people-they had a later reservation, I guessed, because there was nobody else waiting for tables. At the end and after waiting for about 10 min. she gave us a table inside by the window and told us next time we have to ask for patio when we come in even though it was on our reservation for a week !!??

Today we three ladies celebrated one’s birthday at the best table on Cardero’s patio and it was very lovely. The view, the ambiance, the good service, and the very yummy food made for a wonderful friends’ lunch. This is a great restaurant for “shares” and we ordered four dishes which we enjoyed tremendously. Then a shared dessert and 3 teas and we were finished and very happy. My hubby and I come here a lot and now I think we three ladies will return soon also. A truly lovely afternoon!! Thanks, Cardero’s!

The food and service at Cardero's is amazing! We started with some drinks and appies. We had the Thai curry mussels and the wok squid... so delicious and portions were generous! Then we had the Sesame Crusted tuna.... soooo goood!! Shared the 16 ounce rib-eye... that was a huge portion! The food is always spot on! So delicious!! We couldn't miss having dessert especially when they had pavlova on the menu... we had the pavlova and crème brule. Make sure you save room for dessert!!! But what made it even more special was the special attention we got from our server Kristi! She as absolutely amazing. so attentive and she made our special occasion even more special! It was a very memorable evening!! We will definitely be back soon!

Another business meal extremely well handled by our server, Kristy. She was attentive, knowledgeable, and really read the pace of conversation well at the table, knowing just the right timing for ordering etc. Hope to have her look after us again!

Great food...this time the sable fish and the bone-in rib eye.

See you again, soon!

The view is the draw but the outdoor area is beautiful and kept warm enough to enjoy through the fall. We had several seafood dishes and all were delicious, especially the Arctic char. The wine list could use a few more by-the-glass options.

It was a special week for my wife and I.
We were celebrating our 1 year anniversary, 1 year living in Canada and also her birthday.
The restaurant staff were very welcoming and congratulated us before we were even seated.
Shawn service was perfect, always smiling.

The food and the wine were awesome!
