Nestled amid the yachts and seaplanes of Coal Harbour Marina, Cardero’s Restaurant is as famous for its expansive views of Burrard Inlet, Coal Harbour, Stanley Park, and the North Shore Mountains as it is for its fresh seafood entrees and its curated wine list (which boasts some excellent B.C. wines, such as Burrowing Owl and Painted Rock Estate winery).

On any given night of the week, the year-round patio, as well as the restaurant and pub inside, are packed with regulars, locals and visitors. Cardero’s has many long time regulars , says manager Ronnie Teti. He speaks fondly of Jack, who comes in twice a day and orders the same dish: cedar plank salmon and ice cream for dessert. “Once in awhile he deviates and will order a steak or lamb,” Ronnie quips. “He also gets very offended if his “seat” is taken.”

While many Vancouver locals consider the restaurant a second home of sorts, Cardero's is also a popular choice among visiting tourists, including popular film and television actors and musicians. Those who are curious about the restaurant's A-list guests can look to the wall of celebrity autographs where famous faces like Kurt Russel and Goldie Hawn, Bono and Liam Neeson have all left their mark.

Update for review on Jan 16 visit. Craig, the general manager, left me a voicemail with an authentic and sincere message acknowledging the poor seating arrangement. I really appreciated the time taken to follow up.

Good ambiance, great service. Seafood entrees are a bit on the pricey side, but then again, it's an upscale bar / restaurant. The pub fare (burgers, sandwiches) are more reasonable priced. I had the spaghetti bolognese. One of the best I've had, but wished they gave me a slightly larger portion.

Great Location

Hanging out from the seawall in Coal Harbour is Cardero's Restaurant and Marine Pub, We always seem to end up here when we have people from out of town who want to go out to dinner. They're a good restaurant but I think they benefit a lot from their location. The last time we were here we had one of the wok's and the tuna and were underwhelmed to say the least. The pub is fun and they have neat marine artifacts in there but forget about enjoying yourself if you plan on going there on a weekend evening. Its small, cramped and they put way too many people waiting for tables in there. Cardero's is a good Vancouver destination restaurant but there are many better ones out there.

The entire staff at Cardero's went out of their way to make us feel special . From taking our reservation to accommodating all our food and beverage needs we felt we were in great hands by the hosts and servers. The food was delicious and the servers knew their menu and explained things very well. Our dinner party was a great success thanks to your staff , our friends from australia were thrilled with their dining experience. We found it excellent and rate it as one of our favourite restaurants in downtown vancouver .

The server was intrusive and constantly interrupted our conversations. I was also upset that we were seated in the corner of the restaurant even though I specifically asked for a table with a view because it was a special event for us. Food was great. It was just unfortunate that the service was terrible.

Food and place were very good but the service was unsatisfactory. Waiters were very busy that they could not attend to customers’ needs well. Example, the fries that we requested to take home was never given to us. It took a while to take our orders. We could have given more tip but because we were not happy with the service, we did not.

Choose from a selection of freshly grilled fish, or try the juicy wild salmon baked on a cedar plank in a wood-burning oven. Other favourites are grilled steaks, wok squid and wood-oven pizzas. Sample some of the many B.C. wines (offered by the glass or bottle) or try the diverse selection of beer.

Where to eat and drink in Coal Harbour

Location, location, location! Situated right on the water at the Coal Harbour Marina, Cardero’s offers a prime spot to drink and dine. Look out at the boats and the mountains, then look down at your plate and marvel. This is seafood par excellence, with Oceanwise fish and delicious recipes. The location gives it a romantic, out-of-the-way feel, and there’s live music to boot. All in all, this is my favourite Coal Harbour spot.

Perched on stilts and jutting out into Burrard Inlet, Cardero’s in Coal Harbour offers a gorgeous side patio, complete with heat lamps and blankets and, indoors, a broad bank of windows facing the North Shore. Choose their dining room for more formal meals of fresh daily seafood, or opt for their casual lounge with the same menu but with bar seating and a cozy fireplace. Their subtle nautical theme will have you floating away with a relaxing meal in no time.
