Great food and nice outing

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

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.
