This restaurant is really lovely, the photos people post don't do it justice. It's a really well done , lovely atmosphere and excellent service. The food was first class we had the salmon and beef jerky to start - fantastic followed by beef and tuna. It's a small menu which I always prefer, everything about the food was amazing. Wine...

Beautiful little restaurant in a picturesque town. We booked not quite knowing what to expect but were treated to an absolutely delicious meal. We were welcomed by our host and asked to pick our table (we had the whole place to ourselves!) We received complimentary aperitif, olives, bread and a delightful cauliflower puree. Started with prawn carpaccio with pineapple and... More

Restaurants in tourist hotspots can often disappoint and we had no great expectations for Candelaria despite the positive TripAdvisor reviews. However our Sunday lunch last week was well worth the trip. We were warmly welcomed by the owner/chef which is always a good start and our waitress was also very charming. We decided to go for the menu which at... More

We loved the decor here especially the deep blue walls and the musical allusions. We received a very warm welcome and were brought complementary glasses of vermouth and a dish of olives. While we were looking at the menu we were brought an appetizer of mushroom foam which was delicious. For starters I had a warm octopus salad with grapes... More

Fancy and original decoration with a lot of attention to details. The food is simply amazing! Something between fusion and molecular kitchen with local and international influence. We had the Kobe beef which was like in my best dreams! Before and in between courses little appetisers and drinks are being served. Very romantic in the evening.

Wherever you are on the costa Brava, take some time to go to Peratallada and book a table at the Candelaria. It is a very small and very well preserved medieval town. You will be enchanted. And then you will arrive at the restaurant following a narrow cobbled road. Have a look a the photos on the web. The place... More

Visit while you can! This little place is headed for fame, Michelin stars and a waiting list - so get there soon! Gastronomy without pomposity, beautiful presentation without ostentation and flavours, textures and combinations out of this world. Amazing.

Absolutely fantastic meal from start to finish, beautiful romantic surroundings and a laid back atmosphere, with service to match. I really wanted the try the taster menu (minimum 2 persons) but the wife looked at it and didn't fancy half of the menu so had to opt for the normal menu. Everything we were served was fantastic, the way it... More

I was very much looking forward to this restaurant but was not impressed when we ate there. I have eaten in many concept restaurants, some which work and others which fall short, this fell short in my opinion. I had what was the worst Caesar Salad I have ever eaten, a strange dish of congealed smoked chicken with a few... More
