“Only true bar in town”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Owned by an artist couple, this bar and restaurant has great drinks and delicious pizza. Very clean and decorated really nicely with a mix of old (indigenous masks) and new (abstract paintings done by the owner himself). It makes for a relaxing atmosphere! They show a movie every Wednesday evening and occasionally have live music. I highly recommend the mushroom pizza and their slushy-style mojito. The staff there are mostly friends of the owner and are extremely friendly. Not open Sundays or Mondays and typically only open for dinner until late night.

“Best Restaurant in Gracias Lempira”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Most people are gladly surprised to find a gourmet restaurant of this quality in Gracias. The menu offers local and international dishes and quality wines as well as great tropical cocktails like mojitos and margaritas.

What makes the restaurant unique is the fusion of local (traditional-ethnic) ingredients with international gourmet dishes. For instance you will find Loroco Pizza in the menu among other unique dishes. Loroco in an edible herb highly praised by the local Lenca ethnic communities. The owners are committed to using local produce and organic ingredients.

The environment is classy, romantic and safe. It is the perfect place to relax and for a date.
Kandil is owned by Angela and Byron Mejia. Byron is one of the most prominent painters in Honduras and has decorated the restaurant with some of his paintings.

Kandil is without a doubt the best restaurant in the City of Gracias.
