Very good ethnic food, served with a smile. Slightly idiosyncratic decor which would be improved by throwing out the plastic flowers! However the eclectic style did not take away from the overall experience.

went in because it was first place we saw serving traditional rabbit stew. dusty windows, dark wood interior, tables little sticky,chipped crockery did not bode well. however meal itself was the best rabbit we had in st Julian. tastiest food whilst in malta.

9 of us ate here. Restaurant was fairly quiet. Food ranged from excellent to poor but the majority thought it was just ok. Bill was reasonable but we didn't choose to visit again

We found this restaurant while wandering around and decided to give it a try because the menu sounded interesting. We chose the set menu and we were very pleased - the food was of ample proportions and service was good. I recommend the rabbit dishes highly - you will not be disappointed!

We thought, it being last night in Malta we would experience a traditional restaurant but we were very disapponted in our choice. Portion of Fish supper for 28e was small for two people compared to some other maltese eateries we had experienced. They left us for ages before asking us if we would like dessert, by then we didnt! We... More

At Kandles I had the worst dinner I've ever had. Apart from the attractive prices the quality of food is very poor and to compliment this the cooking is terrible. Me and my wife had the chicken breast portofolio and as described in the menu it should be pan fried. As the food arrived this chicken was cold from inside,... More

We were seated and the waiter brought round a fantastic piece of fresh tuna to show us. We were both swayed and ordered starters and the tuna. The starters arrived during the main course and... More

Overall I was quite pleased with Kandles, its a typical rustic style Maltese restaurant. Wrapping things up below: Pros - Food was good. I had the three course Maltese menu - with the Maltese sausage on toast, fish (Lampuka?), and a cake. The fish was beautiful, cooked perfectly, with a caper and tomato sauce that was delicious. The dessert was... More
