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.

An absolutely fantastic little restaurant - great décor and the most wonderful and skilfully cooked food at a very reasonable price. We had some amazing dishes - one with Parmesan Dust, which vanished in your mouth, on a superbly cooked steak, and the most incredible smoked chocolate and mango pudding! The mango gaspacho was bursting with flavour and quite delicious.... More

I checked out the 4 top rated restaurants already listed before heading into the town. The woman at our hotel in Bisbal d'Emporda said Candelaria was definitely one that she'd recommend. We showed up at 9:15PM on a Thursday night without a reservation and they went out of their way to accommodate us (another place told us to come back... More

At Candelaria you will not only be completely charmed by the fine dishes and tasty desserts, you'll love the atmoshpere and the place itself - every singe corner of the restaurant is magically decorated, it's like a quaint museum of lost things, gathered almost by chance in a perfect little place in a small Catalunian town. A hidden cobbled alley... More

We found this place by accident. My husband reserved at the other restaurant but when we arrive that place there were not many people so we decided to walk around then we found this place. We had a wonder time, good meal, good service. Pricy meal but you get what you pay for.

This is an eclectic restaurant which we discovered a few years ago, in this beautiful village close to the square.A return visit a few nights ago reinforced the fact that this should be an annual pilgrimage!The restaurant itself really is wonderfully quirky;almost worth a visit just for that.The duck starter wrapped in an intense fruit covering was one of the...

Had dinner here last night with the family (two teenage lads and my wife) and it honestly exceeded our expectations. Firstly the decor is different to anything else around here, quite eccentric and full of eclectic 'stuff' but really makes it a cosy and welcoming environment to be in. Immediately presented with a aperitif of beer and a little amaretto... More

We had the most fantastic meal and evening. We had planned to return to a restaurant that we had gone to 4yrs previous but stumbled on the Candelaria. The owner has the most enchanting cat who sat outside and enticed us in to what can only be described as a truly magical dining experience.We had our 2 young children in... More
