A table of 5 visited for a birthday celebration. We had starters and mains, and some desserts. Unfortunately the food is very average, nothing was wrong as such, but could of had that little extra finish. Nothing more than you would cook at home, maybe even a little less. We ordered some drinks and they had ran out of certain... More

This is our favourite local restaurant for a number of reasons. Earlier this year we booked our wedding lunch there for a total of 16 guests and from the minute we went in to enquire, the owner and staff were friendly, helpful and flexible. They are all really lovely. Nothing was too much trouble and what could have been a... More

We were visiting Llandudno for one day and were recommended many places around town. We decided to go to Candles mainly because was very close to our hotel. We couldn't have been happier. Very nice food, nice ambiance. Loved their music. The service was great. Jess and Tian did a great job. They were excellent.

After saying we were going to Llandudno for the weekend, some friends told us about Candles, a small intimate restaurant, only open during the evening. We were made to feel very welcome upon arrival. The food produced by the owner/chef was of good quality and perfectly cooked. The portions were generous and value for money. Excellent service. If we were... More
