Please do us a favor and remove Peruvian Cuisine from your front sign....your ceviche, anticuchos, or seco has nothing to do with our traditional dishes, you may be able to fool a non native, but for Peruvians, there is no comparison, ceviche was all chewy, anticuchos all dry and burnt, etc. We left pretty much all what we ordered, and...

Great try for out of town for the weekend. There is a similar restaurant near my home and i love their food and this menu was similar. How could I go wrong? They are newly opened, no liquor license yet and the host was kind enough on the phone to suggest we bring our own bottle. That saved the night.... More

A lively and authentic Peruvian restaurant, La Candela is a welcome spot to have an authentic, inexpensive meal in the middle of Hicksville. The menu is a bit odd at first with widely ranging choices but as you narrow it down it focuses on fish and chicken. The ceviche we sampled was a sea bass which was outstanding. Most fish... More

The food was delicious, the atmosphere and service was great. The food was great, could be a lot for one person if you are not a big eater but great for leftovers.

Great little restaurant nestled in a small little plaza on S Broadway in Hicksville. Great Peruvian food to choose from. You won't be dissapointed. Love the atmosphere as well.

My wife and I went with a Peruvian friend and she was enthusiastic about the cuisine and told us this was Real Peruvian. I loved the Pisco Sour and the meat's were all excellent. The Chinese rice with the south american twist was excellent. The service was great and the atmosphere had good music and was good for families or... More

As a Peruvian myself I feel at home at this restaurant. Before this and some others in the area Peruvians had to make their way to Queens to get something familiar to home. With good service, clean facilities, and enjoyable entertainment, this restaurant is one of the better ones in the area for a Latin experience.
