A wonderful little restaurant

Candela offers great Latin and Mediterranean food. The best is the paella. On our visits there, the chef/owner personally comes to your table, chats with you, and answers your questions. Because the restaurant is small, you get lots of personal attention. Would be nice if the restaurant offered a... read more

We read about this restaurant on trip advisor and thought we would give it a try. It is located in a small strip mall next to a check cashing store. Once inside, it felt homey and has a nice country Spanish style. We started with two appetizers. One was the shrimp in garlic sauce and the other was a stuffed... More

Located in a not so beautiful area in Wilton Manors, you will be impressed once you step inside. The staff is very welcoming and accommodating, the food is delicious, very Spanish cooked perfectly by the chef owner.

A total of 10 of us had dinner and it was great as always. My wife and I have been there at least half a dozen times, but some in our party never had. Armando the chef/owner checked on us 5 times to see if all was well. His wife Yudaris kept the wait staff running smoothly. All in our... More

I am so glad that I had read the other reviews about the location. If you drive by this strip mall you would not go in. But once in the front door it is a great experience. Food was delicious and service excellent. Only negative was I thought a limited wine list.

Cuban Chef Armando creates great Tapas and Meals. Extraordinary for a hidden restaurant off the beaten path

Amazing restaurant about 10 minutes from Fort Lauderdale beach, up Oakland in a nondescript location but don't let that fool you. Menu has a wonderful selection for everyone and good choice of wines. The Chef and owner Armando browses around the restaurant, as time permits, to ensure all are please with their meals. Atmosphere is warm rich colors and colorful... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Wilton Manors. Don't the location fool you, as it is not on the Wilton manor strip but near it. Definitely worth going. Nice place for a date. Great wine list. Different specials. Delicious food made with love. The chef will even come around and ask how everything is. I frequent this place... More

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
