Very crowded, popular spot on the water. Great location. Great food. We had to sit at the bar by the kitchen because the place was so packed. That turned out to be wonderful; we loved watching the nine cooks put together such nice meals.

10 of us including two children went to this restaurant yesterday and we really enjoyed it, the shrimp dumplings, the salmon, and the Wok shrimp were awesome. Katie provided excellent service. Recommend

Hot spot for locals andtourists but food was overpriced for portion size. Famous fried rice looked like white rice with peas added. Prawns were small shrimp, not prawns at all. Does have great view being on the waterfront.

Everytime we come to Vancouver, it is a must to come to Cardero for dinner. The view is spectacular, the fish always fresh and the quality always at the top. Highly recommended.
