“Hidden gem.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

It was our first visit to candles and to be honest it wasn't our first choice. But on a very busy weekend they accommodated us with a table for four. And how glad we were . The food was excellent and the restaurant itself had a great atmosphere. It was also great value for money. Can't wait to go back on our next visit.

“A very good meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014

This is a small basement restaurant, but it is very friendly and the food is proper restaurant food- not pub grub. The basic approach is a choice between three or four course meal formulas, like restaurants in France do. A la Carte dishes are there, but tend to be a more expensive option, so we chose the 3 course format. It would have been easier to stop eating when we had had enough, if the food were less enjoyable, but we didn't and so we were very well fed when we left. All six dishes that we ordered were delicious.
Prices are very reasonable considering the quality and variety on offer. We would recommend Candles very highly.

“Amazing as always!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

Once again i had a gorgeous four course meal here with my family. It is such great value for money we keep coming back. With every main you get two FREE side orders to choose from EACH! Truly spoilt and well looked after. It provides a warm atmosphere with lovely attentive staff and good quality food. Well worth a visit, you wont be disappointed.

We had a nice evening as the service,ambiance and wine could not be faulted. But the food was very disappointing.

“Hidden gem found”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

Found this lovely restaurant whilst viewing the Llandudno parade over the bank holiday weekend in May. Located below a recently opened holistic centre, this was a surprising and welcoming restaurant experience. Greeted by smiling, local friendly waitress, we were presented with a varied menu, with some vegetarian options. Service was prompt and the meals came quickly, hot and well presented. They were very tasty and so was the price. We will be recommending this restaurant to our friends and family.
