“Thanks Nelio for making our wedding luncheon so special!”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

Just wanted to say a rather belated but big thanks to Nelio and his team for putting on such a fantastic wedding luncheon for us back in Nov 2010. It helped to make our day very special and last long in our memories. To this day most of the guests talk about the unique setting and wonderful food. I would without hesitation recommend Candlesticks to anyone who is looking for an intimate venue for their special event. Thanks again Nelio, and hope to see you again sometime soon. Lee & Jessica

“So good and unique is the only description !”
Reviewed 1 February 2012

Having been last year and upon reading mixed reviews , I decided to re visit .
This place is not your average restaurant . It has that 1980s feel to the menu with classics such as boeuf bourgignon , stroganoff etc .
Nelio , the owner , is very pleasant . He has an amazing knowledge of world wines and recommended a beautiful wine to go with our meal .lots of choice on all courses . Great value . Wow !

“I Cannot Recommend This Place Highly Enough!”
Reviewed 29 January 2012

Looking for a restaurant in Stamford for a family occasion, I found Candlesticks on the internet. I rang to book a table and was dealt with by a very pleasant voice who took my booking.

The next evening we arrived and were welcomed by Nelinho, whom I had made the booking with, my family were immediately struck by the friendly welcome we were given. We were ushered to a table and drinks were ordered, we thought that the table at which we were sat was to be our table.

The wine list for this restaurant is extensive, through conversation with our attentive host, we found that Nelinho is a wine judge, often asked to officiate at national wine tasting events. Perhaps that is why the wine list is so good! He is from Portugal, and the restaurant does have several Portuguese specialities on the menu.

After our food orders had been taken, our choices coming from a wide ranging set menu, we were informed our table was ready, which caused surprise as we were not aware of other rooms in the restaurant.

We were led downstairs into an atmospheric cellar room illuminated with candles, and seated at a generously sized table.

The food very quickly arrived, the starters were excellent, our choices ranged from pate, to smoked mackerel and avocado salad, all of the food was beautifully presented and generous in portion.

A pleasant and attentive waiter, overseen by Nelinho, quickly removed plates and our main courses arrived, these ranged from steak in a sauce, to mushroom stroganoff, and beef stroganoff. The meals were accompanied by fresh vegetables served ‘silver service.’ The quality and quantity of the food was most excellent and clearly the product of an establishment that cares very much about the food and service offered.

Dessert was a cornucopia of decision, with so many tempting offerings, but I will leave you to discover these for yourself!

All in all the meal, service and welcome were superb and I personally feel this restaurant should and will climb the Tripadvisor rankings, I hope so as it deserves to be at the top.

Great value for money.
