Mi esposa y yo fuimos de vacaciones a CDMX. Comimos aquí en nuestra primera noche en la ciudad y la comida era fantástica. El chef ejecutivo Norberto Ruiz vino a nuestra mesa y fue muy amable. Mi esposa es celiaca y nos guió a través del menú. Esperamos volver aquí algún día, ya que fue una experiencia culinaria increíble.

The chef David Izquierdo presents elaborate dishes with very good ingredients, complex flavors and interesting textures.
Haven’t eaten this good in a very long time.

A restaurant that exceeds your expectations! The food is absolutely delicious and the service is excellent, very attentive. The ambiance is very relaxing as it is very quiet and enjoyable. Great wine selection as well. I recommend the arroz de verduras, absolutely exquisite.

Hubo varios inconvenientes de entrada no tenían registrada la reservación, hubo que pedir varias veces las cosas, bebidas y condimentos, se comentó intolerancia a la lactosa y no lo consideraban y eso representó cambiar el plato

Por fin me decidí a conocer Candela Romero, sin duda fue una fantástica elección. Te reciben de una forma cálida, el servicio es espectacular y nada atropellado. Las sugerencias que nos hicieron en el vino y la comida fueron adecuadas. Candela Romero es uno de esos lugares en los que uno puede pasar una sobremesa larga tomando algo y disfrutando una gran tranquilidad, espacios cálidos y una sutil elegancia. La carta de bebidas es excelente, el menú es increíble (los arroces son imperdibles) y siempre vale la pena llegar al postre, que los presentan de forma maravillosa y saben mejor. De mis nuevos favoritos en la ciudad.

We were in Mexico City for New Year's Eve. we were pleased that Candela Romero allowed us a reservation a day prior. Situated in the lower level of a fancy hotel, a couple blocks away from the Ángel de la Independencía, it was a prime location for the situation.
We arrived and they seated us promptly. And we looked around at a lot of other couples looking sort of bored. Our waiter came first off and asked us something (he was kind of mumbly and our Spanish isn't perfect). After a bit, I managed to ask him for a menu. Which took about 5 minutes to receive.
We ordered our drinks and waited for the food menu. At 40 minutes in, we finally received the food menu.
We had been in Mexico for two weeks at this point. We get it. Take it slow. Chill out. That's fine. But waiting 40 minutes for the menu is spectacularly different.
We got the menu and it took 20 minutes minimally to put in our order. The help staff came by and gave us complimentary soup and a second drink order. It would be another 20 minutes and we received our meal.
At this point, we were almost giggly. Another couple stormed out, not having finished their meal. Many of the other tables turned over, and we watched as we became the ones there the longest and watched others inquisitively wonder when the hell they would get their menus.
When the food finally came, it was spectacular. We ordered both of the fish dishes. The texture of the cod was wonderful--rich, flaky. The tuna was almost raw in the middle (a good thing) and the eggplant purée with it was garlicky and wonderful.
So, the food was spectacular. The service was nothing short of inattentive and abysmal. And it wasn't for lack of staff. The place was adequately staffed for the amount of people there. It just took forever to get the menu.
All in, it was a 2.5 hour endeavour. A 1.5 hour slot would have been appropriate.
So, close. But no cigar. Improve.
