It has gone ....

This quirky, typical Maltese restaurant appears to have closed much to our disappointment, despite its unique decor, its unique food, sometimes cooked unpredictably, it was a little gem that left you laughing or complaining, in our case laughing.

Kandles might not be fine dining, but it's certainly quaint. As we were looking at the menu outside, a small boy came out and handed us a piece of paper telling us there would be free wine with dinner. We thought, "why not!?". There seemed to be a good mix of locals and visitors inside, and the atmosphere looked nice.... More

Just getting in an "old smell". Dirty and sticky cutlery. Really poor quality set menu.... Salad tasted very bad, traditional soup was dirty water with coliflower taste and the sword fish dry like a shoe and watery and tasteless sauce. Group of Maltese women dinning, screaming and drinking too much, one of them almost threw up on my jacket. Horrible... More

The headwaiter or whatever he was, behaved like an army cook but army food tastes a lot better. The bragoli looked like an aborted fetus in a sea of blood (tomato sauce straight from the can and not stew) and were evidently stuffed with breadcrumbs. The potato and salad portion were small enough on their own, even smaller when you... More

First of all the discount of 50% I had purchased from maltadeals4u was not valid for pizza, whereas on the site of maltadeals4u it was clearly indicated that the discount was valid also for pizza. So we had bragioli. On the menu it was indicated that the filling of the bragioli was supposed to include hard boiled eggs, but there... More

I ate bebbux as a starter and they were delightful. As a main course I ate king prawns with rice and they were exquisite!! Excellent service and very friendly. I recommend this restaurant for both families and couples

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!
