1583 Coal Harbour Quay, Vancouver (map)
Price: Fair +
I don't know what's with all the summer babies, but it's definitely the season for birthdays. A couple weeks back, J had a birthday party originally planned for Sand Bar, unfortunately they didn't take reservation (or was it our party was too big), so we had to relocated. The new chosen restaurant was Carderro in Coal Harbor area.
The restaurant is situated right next to the marina, so it's rather picturesque. The interior had a large airy open market feel. Because of this, the noise level was quite high as there restaurant got more busy, so it was hard to hear sometime. Also, they do have live music after 9pm on weekends, but once again due to the loud noisy, it was not as enjoyable as I would have liked.
Another dish which I accidentally deleted the photo was A's salmon. I have to talk about this dish, because it was horrible. I think it's the driest salmon I have tried thus far. A pretty much had to drink some water with each bite. Also the burger barely had any tar tar sauce which could have helped with the dryness. In a nutshell, this is definitely one dish that I won't recommend.
Although I liked the restaurant location, decor and service, but I just can't say the same for their food. Therefore, if you are looking for a good place to chill for the summer, this may fit the bill, but just be prepare for some average food (at least base on what I had).
