“Amazing Latin American fusion”
Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

Lovely place excellent ambience and cool and hip people In a very trendy part of the city. The menu was varied and offered a taste of Latin American with a sophisticated European touch and Spanish flavored. The staff is attentive and very nice. A must visit while in Madrid

“Great drinks!”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Nice place, great drinks! However, the kitchen was not yet open that afternoon. Tried a couple of different drinks that I really enjoyed, one of them was the passion fruit mojito. The place has good touch on decoration, plenty of space and I will visit again to try the food. Cheers!

“Great place, great meal”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

We had just arrived in Madrid, were hungry, were wandering around the neighborhood but getting discouraged because it was August in Madrid and many, many places were closed for vacation. We stumbled onto La Candelita, it was early and the kitchen not yet open but the staff was wonderful -- sat us down, let us order wine. The meal we had here was one of the best of our trip. We opted for the tapas. I would recommend the tuna in miso sauce, and the arepas (each with a different filling - beans, pork, chicken). Finish up the meal with the tapioca with passion fruit for dessert. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable.
