A wonderland restaurant

Wherever you are on the costa Brava, take some time to go to Peratallada and book a table at the Candelaria. It is a very small and very well preserved medieval town. You will be enchanted. And then you will arrive at the restaurant following a narrow cobbled road. Have a look a the photos on the... read more

Visit while you can! This little place is headed for fame, Michelin stars and a waiting list - so get there soon! Gastronomy without pomposity, beautiful presentation without ostentation and flavours, textures and combinations out of this world. Amazing.

Absolutely fantastic meal from start to finish, beautiful romantic surroundings and a laid back atmosphere, with service to match. I really wanted the try the taster menu (minimum 2 persons) but the wife looked at it and didn't fancy half of the menu so had to opt for the normal menu. Everything we were served was fantastic, the way it... More

I was very much looking forward to this restaurant but was not impressed when we ate there. I have eaten in many concept restaurants, some which work and others which fall short, this fell short in my opinion. I had what was the worst Caesar Salad I have ever eaten, a strange dish of congealed smoked chicken with a few... More

I was blessed to eat in the best restaurants in Peratallada during our stay, and I must say this was the best spot! Food was delicious, different and a real experience! The cost reflects the quality, but for our last night of a wonderful trip, it really topped it off wonderfully! Staff great, food was hugely exciting, well worth the... More

We liked the original combinations in every course, from the welcome appetizers thru the desserts. Not a word of complaint.

We went there in March 2015 and the food was delicious. We had the daily menu and it cost 22€. Very good quality-price. The waitresses are also very nice. I wouldn't mind going back again.

We heard of this restaurant around three years ago, and it has become since then, one of our favorite places to have dinner ( they also offer lunch services some months of the year) A very charming, romantic, easy-going restaurant. The decoration is exquisite, and the service is really good; go there if you are in a romantic visit, family... More

We have to be careful about reviewing restaurants in Peratallada as we own a house there and eat in all the restaurants from time to time, so it can be invidious to make comparisons. There is a general trend locally which has developed in response to the economic climate, which is to reduce prices, to introduce more tapas style meals,... More
