Really really nice place to go and eat.
Visited for lunch whilst in Cadiz for the day.
Restaurant is stylish, staff were very friendly and spoke good English and the food was excellent. Would certainly recommend!

We had a meal here last Sunday between 8.30 and 9 pm without booking thought we'd take a chance after reading some reviews. All I can say is the staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was first class. We had the prawn and chicken lollipops dusted with coconut to start -delicious... Cod Loin with guacamole, Octopus with pickled mushrooms - not my taste but my husband loved it. The waitress took great pride in serving our dessert of Lemon Tira Misu which she had made herself. It was served in an espresso coffee pot and very impressive. The perfect end of the meal for me was the mojito sorbet which was wonderful...Overall 3 members of staff served us and each and every one were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was very busy with a large party of 12 in but this did not affect the service we received. We'd go back and would certainly recommend to family and friends...

We booked this place as we knew it is very popular and gets busy. The restaurant itself is beautiful, very cozy and a really very nice atmosphere. The starters were tasty and quick to arrive and the wine choice and recommendation was very good. Unfortunately, the main courses didn't impress. It felt as though La Candela was trying a little too hard to be 'foody' - small portions, artistic presentation. Although the presentation was good, the flavours were just not there and it just felt a bit over-hyped. I had the octopus, which,whilst nice, didn't blow me away. They'd tried to make it very high quality with some ingenious sauce concoctions, but the flavours just didn't work. The service was very good though, quick and attentive and our waitress tried really hard to help us with the menu and recommendations. We'd probably go back, but not as our first choice in Cadiz.

Pathetic service .. Rude waiters .. Bad food ... Seems like the resturant staff keeps posting good reviews coz there is no way any customer can give the resturants service a good rating

Two days ago, we found this place with my husband from Tripadvisor. I can just say that La Candela is better than the reviews I read in this page. We tasted tapas and they were really original, really tasty. We tasted fried shrimps with coconut powder, home-made croquets, two of them were fantastic. Very friendly staff, good music, good tapas, good wine in good ambiance... Definitely recommended!
