“Mexico comes to Paris!!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

Upon researching for bars/restaurants in rediness for our romantic trip to Paris we were able to read up about Bar Candelaria on the '100 best bars in the world' website and due to our hotel located a 2 mins walk away it was something not to a miss! We also decided to make this our venue for our 1st meal during our stay in the Marais area of Paris. And some experience it was!!. We started in the cocktail area at the back (through a small door at the rear of the eating area) The cocktails were 12Euros a pop bottled beers 7Euros! So the budget took a swipe before we really got going!! Although the bar area is very quirky with candles offering the only light it generated a really nice ambience. The staff were very friendly and were more than willing to talk about anything and everything with the word Paris in it! All the tables were reserved wich obviously confirmed its popularity towards the trendy/chic Parisian crowd that decended an hour or so later. It was buzzing! We then made our way back into the eating area at the front which i can only describe as something like a small kebab style takeaway shop! There is only 1 table for 4 and approx 8 stools at the bar. BUT the tacos and burritos were amin

“Bar Candelaria is just great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

This is a very nice cozy cocktail bar. The cocktails are very tasty, and mostly locals go there. If you are in paris, this bar is definitely a place to check out and meet local people.

One of the coolest bars we visited in Paris. The entrance through the taco shop is in experience none should miss

“Yummy and reasonably priced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

I live in Brussels and there is no decent Mexican food here. I was excited to go to Candelaria for lunch. We tried to get in for dinner but it was completely booked. The lunch menu is limited but everything we had tasted fresh and delicious. My favorite were the carnitas tacos.

“We had a great cocktail here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

My husband read about the best new bars in the world, and this was it. They are from the state and make handcrafted beautiful cocktails. At first we didn't think we had the right place as there is a taco stand that you walk through to get to the bar. The kids had a lovely mocktail. We had dinner around the corner at the Argentina restaurant which was great. We arrived an hour before the bar opened. This turn out to work out, because it got busy. The atmosphere was very hip and fun. The cocktails were on the spending side, but hey you're on vacation. Live a little.
