Stopped by La Candela for lunch today. Had the chicken tacos and a Sol beer. Tacos were great and beer was cold. Wait service was excellent. Will be back !

They have a great lunch special here, includes Jamaica drink, soup, a main course and two side dishes for a VERY good price, and the service staff is always very friendly

I always love to go to Candela and in January when I had guests we went several times. It is always a treat because the owner and staff are so friendly and warm. and the food is good. Price is fair, overall it is always a positive experience.

We stopped here for lunch at the suggestion of our hotel concierge. The lunch was very good. We shared the fish tacos and a bowl of chicken and rice soup. Good margaritas as well. They serve chips and this cheese dip that is quite spicy with the food. Excellent, not pricey Mexican lunch.

We at at La Candela on our last visit to Cozumel at lunch and the five of us each enjoyed our meals. This time my husband, son and I tried it again and were even more impressed. The food is fresh and delicious. We tried breakfast and loved that too - eggs, pancakes, bacon and great coffee. My son and... More

We love eating at La Candela. You can get a huge meal with soup, main course and drink (jamaica?) for around $7.00. We never walk away hungry. The waiters are very attentive. The only thing to know is that you have to ask for your check since it is considered rude to bring it to you. We love the free... More

We ate at La Candela for the first time in July. The food is pretty good, reasonably priced. The owner stopped at our table to make sure that everything was okay and sent over a plate of complimentary desserts. We'll probably try this restaurant again on our next trip.

We ate here twice and really enjoyed it both times. Everyday they have a special menu of food that is already made for a quick lunch or an easy to go food for people. If you ask, you can look at what they offer for the day and they even let me taste one of the dishes that I had... More
