Everyone in our party was very impressed with the service along with great food and wine. Chef Armando takes special care of his customers. Be sure to get a bottle of Juan Gil . Food you cant go wrong

We were told about this place by a friend. Driving up to mini mall we noticed the restaurant was located next to a check cashing business. This was not the best first impression. Walk into the restaurant and everything is transformed. Low level lighting and a warm inviting atmosphere made you forget about everything you had seen outside. It seemed... More

Candela is a Family restaurant where the attention is fantastic. Armando the Chef and Yudaris will make your experience unforgivable. I recomend the gambas as starter. The Sangria is delicious. Prices moderate.

As other reviewers have commented, the restaurant is located in a fairly unattractive strip mall a mile or so away from the centre of Wilton Manors & does not look particularly inviting from the outside. However, the delicious food inside makes a visit well worth while. During our visit my partner and I both had cod croquettes as an appetizer... More

Service is impeccable, the food scrumptious. Very tasty! The Spanish wine we had was exceptional. This Spanish restaurant is one not to be missed. The Chef comes out to each table which is a nice added touch. It is very cozy inside.

We arrived anticipating the best based on reviews. Location is a bit iffy but seemed perfectly safe to us. Decor is nice, very friendly and the menu is mouth watering. Owner is very active, directing staff and very involved but it's his restaurant so why not. His wife is lovely and both are passionate about the food. First served bread... More

Don't be put off buy the exterior, they are located in a small strip mall, and looks a bit dinghy, but come inside for amazing food and service. The chef and his wife owners are always so happy to see you and provide an amazing meal. This is a meal for foodies, and don't be in a hurry. Bring friends,... More

They were just taking the metal coverings off the windows and door to open. The K Mart across the street is closing. If I had not seen the place reviewed on "Check... More

I have to say this restaurant is very good. Ignore the negative comments! Excellent service, greeted by the owner/chef. He gave us a brief explanation of the food and his background. Excellent wine selection! We had a Spanish 100% cabernet....the best! Great price too. Appetizer...croquet and iberico ham. The ham melted in the mouth and croquettes crunchy and rich cheese....
