This restaurant came highly recommended for exceptional food. I couldn't agree more. I came here with friends on a Tuesday evening, the restaurant was very quiet, but that just gave us exceptional service from our waiter and the Chef/Owner. We received details of great food recommendations and knowledge of some of the various Spanish Wines on the wine list. Our... More

If you live near or pretty close by this restaurant and have not been here... you are asleep on a diamond in the rough. I've been here twice with couples and have thoroughly enjoyed both experiences the restaurant is quaint. just small enough to make you feel like you're off the beaten path but big enough to where you could...

It is family style eating so order a couple of plates, a bottle of wine and enjoy the atmosphere. We had the sea food paella, it was very good, if... More

The appearance when you first drive up is a little unsettling. The liquor store next door doesn't help. But a true hole-in-the-wall treasure is what this restaurant turns out to be. The ambiance inside takes you away from the strip center where you parked. The service is attentive from the start. It seemed as though "the kitchen" was fully aware... More

As other have noted, location isn't the best, but no problems at all with the area. This is basically a tapas café with some entrees. The interior is nicely decorated and gives a very warm and cozy atmosphere. We had reservations at 630 and were seated promptly. Waiter and staff were attentive. We started off with a nice warm and... More

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

Dear all We went there for the first time based on the good feedback received so far and since it is 1.4 km away from our home. The restaurant is typical spanish and they serve also authntic food. We had nice wine which starts from USD 33 a bottle. All the courses were around USD 10 to 20. So the... More
