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

We saw this place on Check Please. It was great. I had the fried black pasta with squid. The rope veiga, the grouper and shrimp, and Moroccan chicken were good too. We will be back .. next time we will have more tapas and share the dinner.

Not only are the portions generous, the food is excellent and the price is right. There are a variety of flavors on the menu, so it's nice to have a selection depending on what strikes your fancy. Recently, I enjoyed the beef carpaccio appetizer and the Moroccan chicken entree. Both were excellent. The restaurant offers beers and wine -- not... More

Who would have thought that this amazing gem was hidden in this strip mall. The owners were there and very accommodating. The food was very traditional Spaniard food.

We were taken here by friends last week and had an excellent meal. It was a weeknight and we were shocked that the place was empty. We went back on Saturday and the place was packed. The left side of the menu is made up of warm and cold tapas. The right side lists entrees, which include fish, chicken, beef,... More

The food at Candela's is a mix of the chef / owner's Cuban born Spanish raised influence. It is always fresh, flavorful and creative and affordable. It is family run and you feel like you are eating in the family dining room. No foo-foo frilly décor, but down to earth.
