“An Excellent Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

Just had a great dinner at Cande. I had the grouper with coconut rice and fried plantains, and my girlfriend had the jumbo shrimp dish. Both dishes were excellent. We also had an excellent appetizer that had a sampling of empanadas, fried cheese sticks, fried shrimp, and other items. Everything we ate was great, and so was the atmosphere. The place was decorated very nicely, and the staff was great. A great experience all around. I would definitely eat here again.

“Excellent local fare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

I entertained some guests from Bogota and we had a delightful meal. I had the local beef dish and everyone was very satisfied with the meal. The dance presentation was fun. The fact that my four guests were Colombian, from Bogota, and were all happy says something.

“Excellent evening”

Great local food, very friendly service and even a little show with local music made this a great evening. We felt that value for money was quite good given the excellent food quality

“not good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

We were here for my birthday. Not a great experience!!! Ram rack is really bad and grilled shrimp so salty that I couldn't eat it. Ram rack was like beef jerky. They advertise the entertainment as if it makes up for the food. Both are really bad!! The only good thing was the champagne!! don't eat here,,,,,,,,,,,,but do eat at club de pesca!!!!!!!!!!!!! the best ever.............

“Worth a visit ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

Into this small narrow space fits a restaurant serving very good local food in a super ambiance all well served up. The music and dancing is entertaining but not intrusive.
