We had four great meals here. We felt welcome and appreciated. All meals were presented well and tasted even better. Our appetizers and wine were also very good. We are glad we stopped here to eat.

My wife and I had such a lovely evening here. The patio was just magical and we loved the family recipes. Food was really great. We chatted a lot with the owner who was so friendly and charismatic.

Hi! I was wondering if anyone knew if and when Candouni closes for the season? We are taking our honeymoon in the beginning of November and wondered if they would be open. Thanks!
