Just visited this restaurant on a Saturday night. The outside looks un appealing, but once you go in your opinion changes quickly! The owners are there always, he is the chef and she takes care of everything else. There both friendly, and willing to accommodate your special requests. the tapas were to die for, try the croquettes, the octopus and... More

This was our third visit to Candela. We really like so much about the restaurant. First of all, it is nothing like a chain restaurant….and that is a WONDERFUL thing. It's has a very welcoming ambiance and unique style…..small, personal, family run. The service is professional, courteous, and helpful. We don't hesitate to ask questions about the menu. Most of...

We went for dinner based on different reviews that we read online, and we were really happy with our decision! It is a spanish-like restaurant, with tapas & spanish like dishes, although some of them are more inspired to South America....The quality of the food is really good! The vaca frita (ropa vieja) was really good and the Pollo Extremadura... More

If it hadn't been for a friend who has eaten here before, I never would have known about it. First things first, ignore the neighborhood & strip shopping plaza that it's located in. Once inside, it's cozy and nicely decorated. The staff was the husband and wife (assuming they're the owners) in which the husband is the chef and the... More

Greeted upon arrival and table had a reservation sign for me. Alternate seating was offered but not necessary since the decor and ambiance is right from anywhere on the salon. Server was very hospitable and detail oriented. She went over the menu and explain everything I asked for. Super nice plate presentation and flavor is outrageous. Definitely will recommend and...

I am from the Northeast and I have been coming to Candela for 6 years, usually once a year during my annual trip to South Florida. I wrote a stellar review after my first one-of-a-kind visit years back and since its been so long and the place has changed in many ways, I thought it was time for a new... More

Food in this place is absolutely amazing! Choices are so interesting! The staff, especially the chef are down to earth and personable. Lovely atmosphere. We were four adults getting together after four months of not seeing each other, this place was the perfect for our get together. Oh yeah, the wine choices are superb.

This place is wonderful - the owner is quite established, and NOTHING he makes is anything short of fantastic. VERY friendly and clean. A nice romantic spot for dinner as well.

Awesome Spanish food with generous portions and good prices. Away from the tourist spots and off the beaten path, but worth finding. Just off Oakland Pk. Blvd. - 2909 NE 6th Ave. Friendly staff and delicious food. My favorites - chicken extremadura and paella.

Thank Sharon B
