Lovely food

Nice little restaurant on Triq Paceville. Cosy atmosphere, and great food. I had rabbit, and my wife had pork chops, which were both delicious. Got free wine too!

My wife and I were wanting to experience real maltese food, as the night before (9/3/2015) we ate at the restaurant opposite The Maltese Mama which we both found excellent!! But this night (10/3/2015) we were enticed by the quaintness of Kandles, My wife had a passable swordfish steak I "played safe" and had Maltese Roast Beef and roast potatoes... More

Recently had dinner with my wife at Kandles Restaurant for the second time. Very unprofessional: Quite evident that food is not freshly cooked as you have it pronto served within 5 minutes from ordering it!!! For a fast food restaurant that is excellent but surely not for this type of restaurant! No breathing space is allowed between the starter and... More

Very good food, went with family for a birthday dinner. starters of crusty bread and bruschetta were very good. I had fillet a la islola which has maltese sausages and is simply amazing. the rib eye was cooked to perfection and also the rabbit done the maltese way was very good. roast potatoes and/ or chips plus salad and vegetables...

Found this restaurant on the first day of our holiday, and ended going there 3 times in a week. Simply loved the food and the atmosphere. Rabbit was delicious, best for maltese food in the whole st julians. Friendly staff, and good value for money. Definately on my top list. Highly recommended

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!
