We have been to the Magnolia several times and I agree that the service is a bit old-fashioned. However, the food is normally of a very high quality only to compare with the best restaurants in Puerto de la Cruz like Kafka and Regulo. The Magnolia has a lunch offer that we have opted for a couple of times –... More

Have been here before on several occasions and mostly enjoyed. Ordered a bottle of the House white to get us started - good value at 9E and chilled to perfection. My wife had the beef stroganoff and I had a fillet steak with pepper sauce. Stroganoff was really nice and my steak was cooked to perfection and served with a... More

We went here because previous reviews were good and they had a good value menu of the day option. However, while the seafood soup was wonderful the vegetable one had bits of chicken in it ...not a problem unless your a vegetarian; unfortunately my friend was. To the restaurants credit, they haply replaced the soup with Gazpacho and we all... More

Looks like and is a lovely restaurant, the food was average, overpriced and the staff were pleasant but too attentive in that you felt you were being watched so the plates can be whisked away as soon as your cutlery hit the plate and your wine glasses was virtually empty, felt a bit creepy and smarmy and not relaxing as...

The Magnolia Restaurant, which is situated almost opposite the deluxe hotel Botanico in the coastal town of Puerto de la Cruz on the north side of Tenerife is our most favourite restaurant on the island and in fact is one of our most favourites across all the countries we have visited. Since our retirement a few years ago we tend... More

Lovely food,excellent service and a great friendly atmosphere. My husband rates the steak tartare as the best he has ever had as well as the fish soup. I liked the Canarian soup and the selection of fresh market fish. In the ten days staying at La Botanico we dined here three times. Booking is essential as it is a very... More

Service here is at a Spanish pace, so don't go if you are in a rush. We had the most fantastic chateaubriand, which was cooked to perfection and served with a variety of vegetables. Delicious deserts too. Tasty house wine, and several wines by the bottle also. When I went midweek a lot of the diners were on the Set... More

We had a great meal at Magnolia,,fortunately had booked as it was busy.Service is somewhat slow and everything is done at their own leisurely pace but the food is well worth the wait.The avocado and prawns was a meal in itself and a delight and the chateaubriand top class.Their selection of home made desserts are exemplary. Magnolia is not cheap... More

Stylish interior. Food above average, but often poor service. Unless you are a newly-rich russian, easily impressed by smug servants, don't go there at night when the reataurant is busy. Maybe because they are a bit understaffed they appear not very observant, creating awkward situations, where you and your guests are left way too long with empty plates or glasses.... More
