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

It looks deceptively nice from the outside and it was the firs restaurant with a spare table and we were starving.... should of kept looking. 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

the food quality was not great, my wife left both her starter and mains as they did not taste good. Old style restaurant with lots of wood which meant that we were visited a few times by big cockroaches during the meal, which the waiter just laughed off as nothing he could do about the dinosaurs.

We first visited this restaurant a few years ago and thought it good & therefore wanted to try it again despite some poor reviews. The night we went it was very quiet which was worrying as other restaurants nearby were very busy, but we decided to give it a try. Our meal was o.k, nothing fantastic but nothing bad either....

Decided last night in resort to eat out. Chose Swordfish, Octopus in garlic and a mixed grill for our less adventurous member. Really good food at reasonable prices. Nice little friendly restaurant, serves local wines and beers. Will go back again.

Poor service, unprofessional staff and tasteless food. (how can you serve a tasteless fish feast? ask their chef) Tourists, don't get attracted by the cheap prices. They are just there to trap people in.
