Cardero’s is loud and fun, with a great view, a fantastic patio, and lots of room for the kids to run around. It’s located on a wharf overlooking Coal Harbour, in a building that looks like salvaged bits of wood and metal flung together to create modern art. Inside, it’s all comfy caramel-colored leather sofas, exposed wood beams, floor-to-ceiling windows, curved wooden bars, and a great old cast-iron stove in one corner. The menu takes a global approach, offering Chinese stir-fries, Cajun ling cod, mussels in curry sauce, Mediterranean pastas, and North American chops and burgers. The food is not exceptional (hardly surprising with so much fusion confusion), but there is something to satisfy everyone, especially if you’re traveling with kids, and a respectable beer and wine list to keep the grownups happy, too.
