We've eaten here before many times, but it's still one of our overall favourites every time we visit Vancouver. The views across the water are terrific, and the meals have never disappointed. The staff are also very friendly but provide excellent service. Not cheap, but great value compared to the other nicer restaurants in the downtown area. This is a... More

The dinner included wok fried rice and mixed vegetables. The waitress was so pleasant and even took the time to share a little history with me about Vancouver. The... More

We were given to understand that Cardero's is a popular restaurant that features live music. So, we made the reservation and arrived about 20 minutes early. The place was mobbed, and we had to wait for at least 20 minutes in the not so warm entrance. We were finally seated and were overwhelmed by the noise made by the crowd.... More

My husband and I went to dinner there at the recommendation of the concierge at our hotel as we were interested in dinner and listening to jazz or blues. While the waiter was very attentive, that is about the best I can say. It was so noisy that it was impossible to hear the music at all! My husband had... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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.
