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, gr...

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 one thing I LOVE about Carderos is the consistency. I know that whenever I go there, the food and service will be amazing. I do think, their Salmon is one of the best dishes out there!!!

Re: atmosphere. Too large, too busy, too noisy. Guess it's more about personal preference - food and service are obviously drawing crowds in! We would probably choose a less busy time to come to Carderos in the future.

Unfortunately old faithful appears to be dying. However atmosphere is still cool because of location and view. Service was great but hard on the up sell. Like an espresso Martini from an espresso coffee at the end of the night?? Seriously. Anyway food was just average and not like it used to be.

Our server was fantastic. For a group of 14 to have water glasses filled at all times is fantastic. Food was okay, I was expecting better, maybe because they were busy when we went for dining.

I enjoyed a catch up dinner with a friend of 40 years. The little deuce booth I asked for was ready right at 7:00. The serving staff was perfect as was the food. I forgot to look outside at what I’m sure was an incredible view but was so busy enjoying my friend’s company! A great evening thank you... Looking forward to another visit next time I’m in town.

Our service was Fantastic from the time we sat down to leaving. A special mention goes to one of your male hosts (short black hair) who sat us at a table that best suite our needs rather than the one that was originally assigned to us. He said to us, “No problem I would want the same to”. 👍✌️

Good food and good service, but my sister called in advance to ask the restaurant to put candle in dessert for birthday, and they said they would, but they did not follow through. Disappointing as we wanted to make the meal special for the birthday girl.

A little dark, even with the candles. We were in the bar side of the restaurant. Went to Dine Out and decided to do the Happy Hour instead and it was just great. Most of the food was great; the one item that was not good was mentioned and the server went above and beyond to make us happy. This is a recurring theme, your servers just rock.

Nestled amid the yachts and seaplanes of Coal Harbour Marina, Cardero's offers spectacular views of the local mountains and Burrard Inlet. 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

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.
