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

I was never so happy that the first restaurant we planned to go to, that particular evening turned us away, since they were planning on closing the kitchen that evening. We started looking for the next place to eat and we stumbled upon this hidden gem in Peratellada. Nice, little restaurant with an eclectic decor and very friendly service. We... More

My wife and I had one of our best dinner experiences ever at this romantic restaurant in this beautiful little medieval town (see attached photos). The whole dining experience was exceptional, from the welcome drinks and olives - to the deserts! Service was perfect - and well timed between courses - and at a very reasonable price! The appertizer (Foia... More

Was delighted by the pre dinner tasters, the sophistication of the menu. Had the smoked squid and octopus(with real smoke), giant octopus, entrecôte, slow cooked pork, dorado - all was flawless. Accompanied by great service and atmosphere. Must visit.

Very romantic and was a pleasant last evening for us. We have tried various restaurants in the village, some bad (La Cort), some very good (las Coquas del Psss), regular (El Bonay). This evening in the Candelaria we have to mention the service was excepcional, also the details and the food. The chef is wonderful, even to the last detail.... More

Peratallada is a beautiful little medieval town loaded with tourists and traditional tapas restaurants, many very good. Candelaria is a unique little jewel nestled a bit unobtrusively on a quieter street. The restaurant is small with perhaps 15-20 tables and as others have said is decorated in a unique style, with many different candles (naturally), framed art and other chatchkes,... More

Food is very good, surprising and with an excellent service. The place has a very unique decor, it makes you feel somewhere else. I would highly recommend this place for couples or small groups.
