We'd read about the pizzas at this place, so on a road trip last year, stopped in and were absolutely in love with the food. The decor was interesting, the place was packed, and we found the kind of pizza we love - beautiful thin...crust, tons of choices including vegetarian for my husband, plus, great service. We were too full to try any of the other options, but it's on the list to return again!More

Loved this place! It has a nice indoor patio that provides a pleasant relaxed atmosphere. But what makes Kandil special is its delicious pizzas. Can’t miss their Choros, Lotoco and Chipilin pizza...it is a unique gastronomic experience.

We stopped by Kandil Pizza y Cafe as we were reviewing it for our upcoming trips next summer and later in the Fall of 2020. Definitely the best stop between Tegucigalpa and Copan. Conclusion: Strong recommend and will definitely be back. Pros: - Place is...absolutely nice, well kept, and cozy. It was a perfect for decompressing after a 5 hr drive from Tegucigalpa. The outside patio is very clean, with great and well thought arrangements and decorations. The main room in the cafe side is also really cute and cozy. We decided to enjoy the amazing weather in the outside patio. - Food quality: Really good. Not the greatest pizza I've ever had, but definitely one of the best pizzas I've had in Honduras. We ordered a half Kandilera and half Tomato/Oregano. The tomato/oregano was meant to be a margarita pizza, but I didn't get any basil. It was a special ask (not on the menu) but will consider for next time. - Service: Outstanding. Cesar and our server (can't remember her name) were awesome not just serving us, but also answering all of our questions. Cons: Non really other than my "Margarita" pizza not having basil. Again, it wasn't on the menu and it was a special ask. They were so nice accommodating it. In summary, great service, really cozy, clean and well designed place, and good quality pizza.More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Gracias. While it is not the typical Honduran cuisine you might be looking for in Gracias, it is well worth a try. Their pizza is amazing. They also sell some of our favorite Honduran grown coffee. We...have lived in Honduras for ten years and have traveled extensively in country. My wife is a coffee lover and she says that this place sells some of the best. We definitely recommend the stop!More

Eating at Kandil was a sweet experience. It should be a place that every traveler eats at while in Gracias, as many of the pizzas feature local ingredients such as loroco and choro. The design of the restaurant is charming and the staff were very...friendly. I personally tried the Colosuca pizza along with a natural beverage and I wish I had visited Kandil more than once during my time in Gracias. Indeed, Kandil is one of the several reasons I have for wanting to return to Gracias at some point in the future! Highly recommended.More

We were in Gracias for several days and this was the last night before we fly out. It was already starting to fill up and we had a large group (10) but we got two different tables just slightly separated. The restaurant has a great...atmosphere, great service and the pizza and wings are definitely worth it. I would highly recommend a stop there while in Gracias!More

This is the second or third time we visited this cafè and pizza place. They give you the option of different types of pizza, which is thin and crispy, and they let you create your own pizza with the ingredients you want. Many of the...ingredients are locally grown. They also serve beers from all over the world. The coffee is very tasty. I have recomended this cafè to many friends and family members. It's easy to get there from the main park.More
