Food was great - very reasonably priced. Host is very accommodating. It was during the world cup and the place was very busy, yet we got served quickly.

We've been going to this restaurant for years and always loved it. Raymond, our Catalonian waiter, was always attentive to our needs and a pleasure to converse with. He retained his European class manner, but was not nearly as friendly and attentive as he had been in previous visits.Recently, this restaurant moved to a new location. We were very disappointed...

Even though the owner means well, the place is ready close down. My wife and I were regulars as the food was good and the prices were decent. Our last time there we got a severe stomach infection resulting in non-stop vomiting and diarrhea, followed by visits to the gastrointestinal doctor and bills of hundreds of dollars/thousands of colones.

Try the empanadas, the enyucados and the crepes! Service is very friendly. The atmosphere is tranquil, with smooth music and always exhibiting paintings from local artists.

The food was well executed. I had the trout which was faultless, though my wife found her steak indifferent. No surprises there, as Costa Rica is not known for the quality of its beef. If you have not tried empanada's I can recommend them as a starter. The restaurant itself has attractive Decor, and unusually for Heredia is set back... More

My husband and I spent 6 nights in Heredia and ate at this restaurant two of those evenings. The owner was incredibly nice and helpful. We asked for his recommendation both nights and received some of the absolute best meals we've had. -The first night we ate Trucha (trout) with a honey mustard sauce, new potatoes and an amazing vegetable...

A large group of friends -- four of us pregnant -- had lunch at La Candelaria. The salad bar is a bit sparse, but since I've never been to another restaurant in Costa Rica with a free salad bar, I won't complain. The Spanish owner was very friendly, and gave us wonderful recommendations. The food was delicious. We will return!
