This place is a great to taste local food, from Caribbean stews, seafood to an Italian Osso Buco. They offer great service and the location is close to local hotels in Isla Verde. Ambiance is great for business meetings with a Caribbean flavor.

Candelas offers excellent service and excellent food. Our large group had suckling pig, squid, plantain chips and sorullitos for appetizers. They were all delicious. For dinner, may ordered the fish special with asparagus, others the osso buco and the ribs. Everybody had raving reviews.
Service all night was outstanding and they have valet parking.
Only drawback was that prices are a bit hi.

Came in for a late lunch. We were all hungry and grouchy, ready to fill our bellies. Little did we know how tasty the food would be. The stews are excellent!, especially the goat. The waiter and staff were so nice they split a dish for my two friends offering extra ravioli. Desserts were heavenly as well. Highly recommend this place. Awesome people, wonderful ambiance. A+

This place had THE MOST decadent bite of food I have had ALL year! We had the Confit Suckling Pig and it was Ah-mazing!

Next was the Braised Ox Tail and it tasted like it was cooking for 4-5 days. the avocado salad was made from the best avacados I've seen in a long time.

They have valet parking and a great wine list with perfect service from the staff.

I suggest you stay for a little while and have a drink at the bar which is stunning!

Can't wait to get back here!!!
