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

Not a great location, in a strip mall just off Oakland Blvd. their neighbors are business's I would not want to enter in the middle of the day. 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....

This was our second time at Candela and will be my last. The reservation was for a party of 4 at 7:30pm, it took them 10 minutes to find the reservation (they filed it under the first name not that last name) and kept say you do not have a reservation (was made under Open Table with a confirmation). After... More

I have written a prior review on this restaurant, and our visit Saturday night was the best yet. We shared the ensalada rustica. Entree portions are a good size, so we usually share an appetizer. We also enjoy the bread, served warm with a hint of olive oil. Our bottle if Chardonnay was $27. We each wanted lamb even though... More

Although the strip shopping center where it's located almost stopped me from entering, I was very lucky my dinner companions talked me into trying this place. The food was excellent and the chef was a real character. His wife is the hostess and they are passionate about the food served. They both came by our table and talked about their... More

Had amazing tapas and wine there last Saturday night. Shrimp, Moroccan sardines, oyster mushrooms and more. However at one point the chef came out and called all the wait staff together on front of the diners. He talked about making great food and loving to cook for people, then went psycho on his staff for not keeping bread on the... More

Chef Armando does a wonderful job, not only in his creation of uncommonly delicious dishes, but he is a perfect host and lastly has created an intimate and welcoming ambiance down to the decor. We were a party of 13 for a birthday celebration. The chef seated us in the new adjacent room which was beautifully decorated and comfortable. We... More
