Visited here on Sunday afternoon. It was busy and parking was a bit of a challenge. However, the experience proved wonderful. The staff were excellent (even with it being busy), the food was delicious (enchilada suizas, fish tacos and carnitas nachos) and the views from the deck of the San Diego skyline (and the beach) were beautiful. I'd definitely return.

Incredible views of the San Diego Skyline with innovative cocktails and fabulous appetizers , Happy Hour 11 to 11 how cool is that. They've changed the menu to include delicious and creative traditional Mexican dishes with a large selection of seafood , chicken, and carne selections. You can't miss with Candelas on the Bay. Highly recommended!

Just had some light snacks here - quesadillas, chips and guacamole, and steak tacos. Everything was excellent.

We were enchanted by the photos and menu on the website and having a harbor-side table at the window. The food and service were disappointing on a very busy Thursday night. The manager Stefano provided excellent assistance and service when the waitress seemed unable to give adequate attention to our table at the far end of the restaurant. The food was average. The view is the best part of the restaurant. The happy hour menu runs from 11 am - 11 pm, maybe a sign that they strive for quantity over quality.
