I have gone twice and bothI have gone twice and both times the meal has been exquisite. Wonderful staff and interesting menu. It has quickly become my favorite restaurant in south Florida.

So happy to have found this place!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMNot to be missed in Fort LauderdaleCandela is a very special find in Fort Lauderdale! Located in a rather drab strip mall, that is the only mediocre aspect of this restaurant. The wait staff is warm and accommodating as is the chef. The menu is varied and exciting with about 5-6 entrees that I am still excited about returning and trying. When I mentioned that the pasta dish with shrimp, calamari, clams and mussels sounded interesting but that I wasn't fond of clams and mussels, the chef/owner volunteered to make the dish with shrimp and calamari only. It was delicious! Fellow diners had the beef, fresh fish and the chicken dishes and all were very pleased with their meals. It was an excellent dining experience that I cannot wait to revisit!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe Need More Like this One!What a great find! I can't believe this restaurant has been around for more than five years and we just found it...Probably because of the strange location...But, it is that location that probably keeps the prices so moderate. Food was delicious. All four of us enjoyed our varied dishes. Interesting, Spanish-oriented wine list (appropriate for the food). They were out of the wine I initially chose and they actually suggested a wine that was $8.00 less. It was delicious! We shall return!!2/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
