Wonderful place to eat and enjoy the scenery. Food is great and the servers are friendly. Sometimes this restaurant can get a little noisy but its always busy with a great vibe. Sitting around the bar can also be fun as you watch the chefs...More

This restaurant is always a good place to visit for a good, consistent steak or seafood meal. The view is very nice, and the wine list is adequate. On the Saturday night we were there, however, the place was so noisy, we couldn’t hear each...More

Had a great salmon burger (one of the best anywhere) and pinot gris. Attentive and professional service. Tables are very close together so a table inside can be very loud. Outside in the summer is absolutely wonderful.

Carderos has been a local meet-spot and gathering place for many years now in Vancouver. Great location, marina views and upscale pub food (try the wok-squid). Only complaint is “large barn” sound annoying to hearing-aid visitors or anyone wanting to just speak to their other...More

Very mediocre food, service, surroundings harken back to the 1970's, the worst part of the 1970's rustic decor. Nothing fresh or remarkable here. Largely older patrons. Don't waste your time.

Good food, on top of the water on Coal Harbour. Rustic and simple. Nice to have a beer and ear a good fish.

We were looking for a restaurant that served Thanksgiving dinner and found this place in the harbour. We had the Thanksgiving menu which tasted great. Service was good, staff was friendly. The only downside: we barely finished our salades before the entrees were served.

Service was good, dishes are on the high scale of mediocre for Vancouver standards. Ambiance and location is superb. Kitchen seemed way behind the curve and we waited 45m for our dinner.More
