Ideal during the summer and cozy in the winter, La Candela has established itself as one of Barcelona's popular, hidden gems. Their small terrace nestled in the Born is a quiet getaway from the busy downtown streets of Ciutat Vella. Don't let the rustic restaurant entrance deceive you, as the front bar only serves as a place for locals to have a few drinks before continuing on their way. If it's too cold to dine on the terrace and you're in the mood for a hearty, intimate meal, walk a few steps towards the back door and you'll discover a large and inviting dining room. La Candela's food is fresh, diverse and there's always something different on the menu so it's worth coming back multiple times; which most people find themsevles doing.
