It was a Wednesday in December so we were practically alone. I enjoyed it. Nice atmosphere. Very near the centre of the old part of Cuenca.

Spent four days en Cuenca eating at some very posh restaurants including the Parador Nacional. But Candela was very special to us. Great food with friendly service. Not to be missed.

I totally agree with Peter from UK.
The front is misleading. These guys give you super service and super food.
We even got in half an hour before they opened for beers in the bar.
Thanks a lot for a great evening for 7 MC bikers from Norway :)

Don't be put off by the unimpressive frontage of this restaurant; it's a little gem. Our party of four sat outside in the dimly lit alley (yes, really) and shared goats cheese salad, crocheted, cod/bacalhau and pork sirloin, which were all superb. We finished with browcheese (brownie/cheesecake combo) and pear tart which were also great. Btw there is an English language menu if you need. So give it a chance and trust the chef!

The restaurant offers a relativelly small, but good selection of different courses to share.
The idea is to try different flavours and share them in an informal and very familiar atmosphere.
The warm attention from maitre and waiters is something really different you can enjou at meson Candela.
Please do not miss the sliced Lomo and the codfish.

Nice location with a convenient Parking at the Auditorio (200m walking distance)
