No one will ever accuse Candelas Restaurant in Downtown San Diego of wasting energy. This romantic hideaway relies on the dim flicker of candlelight to set the mood and illuminate its four separate rooms. Not only a date spot, couples, friends, and family can all enjoy what Candelas has to offer. Literally hundreds of candles light the lounge and dining areas, including a secluded chef’s table surrounded by a mini wine cellar — perfect for a couple’s night out when reserved on a week’s notice. Specializing in sophisticated Mexican cuisine, every course tastes better than the last, culminating in a mouth-watering dessert (one favorite: the Torcrepas De Cajeta) – served by a friendly and professional staff that operates on the same level as the ambience and the food.
