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

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

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.

In town for a conference, met with a large group of folks at Cardero's. Due to the size of the group, there were many folks coming and going. We arrived late, were seated immediately with the group, our orders taken quickly and delivered in a timely manner. During the rest of the evening, orders were placed and received, again, quickly....

My husband and I each had a fish dish. I had the salmon and he had the sablefish (black cod). Both were cooked to absolute perfection. While on the expensive side of a meal, it was worth it to have the fish.

Food was unbelievably good. Service was awesome. It was honestly the shortest wait for food I've ever had at a restaurant. Almost the whole table of 6 had the salmon, and loved it. And then we had the dessert of the day which was a New York style cheesecake. So. Good. I would definitely go there again and again. Too... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood 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.
