For more than 500 years one of the staple foods of the Canary Islands has been a milled flour known as gofio, ground in windmills that at one time peppered the islands. Few working mills now remain. For Don Felipe, the man who first established the restaurant in the 1990s, the windmill of El Molino Blanco represented the traditions of his homeland. Today it reminds us of a fundamental food still prevalent in the Canary Islands and represents our commitment to preserving the best of Canarian traditional cuisine combined with the finest ingredients and years of culinary know-how to provide a unique and unforgettable dining experience. Choose from our inside dining room set within a traditional covered courtyard adorned with curios from Tenerife's rural heritage intertwined with rich foliage, or on our garden terrace with its scented flowers and lush tropical plantings. If it's a special occasion, why not book our intimate gazebo table set within the garden which gives you additional privacy in a rustically romantic setting. From the moment you set foot in El Molino Blanco we want to ensure you enjoy the very best food, service and entertainment so that you go home from your Tenerife holiday with precious memories to last a lifetime, or at least until you return to share your time with us again. "Through excellence in food, service, ambience and entertainment, to provide a feast for all the senses and a memorable dining experience customers will want to repeat"

We visited this restaurant a few nights ago whilst on holiday. It had excellent reviews, a beautiful venue, excellent food but a clumsy and arrogant waiter. Not only did he shower us in red wine due to his lack of attention he proceeded to laugh with other guests to imply that I had spilt the wine. Further more he was... More

We saw this place advertised near our hotel and the food looked delicious so we thought we would give it a go. First impressions were good and the staff were helpful and attentive. This is a large restaurant but the setting and ambiance was delightful. We ordered a bottle of house red wine (22 euros) I ordered prawn cocktail to... More

The singing chef was superb too We all agreed whilst the most expensive meal of our stay, it was... More

Excellent restaurant with very good service. Looks like a traditional Spanish restaurant amid the new options in las Americas. Expensive but includes good traditional entertainment. Well worth a visit but probably only once per holiday due to cost.

We visited this restaurant recently whilst in Tenerife after it being recommended to us. We had prebooked as suggested. A group of 6 of us went on a Sunday evening which I believe is the quietest evening. Staff were very welcoming and we were quickly shown to our table and offered drinks. A very good Menu with lots of choice... More

Description

For more than 500 years one of the staple foods of the Canary Islands has been a milled flour known as gofio, ground in windmills that at one time peppered the islands. Few working mills now remain. For Don Felipe, the man who first established the restaurant in the 1990s, the windmill of El Molino Blanco represented the traditions of his homeland. Today it reminds us of a fundamental food still prevalent in the Canary Islands and represents our commitment to preserving the best of Canarian traditional cuisine combined with the finest ingredients and years of culinary know-how to provide a unique and unforgettable dining experience. Choose from our inside dining room set within a traditional covered courtyard adorned with curios from Tenerife's rural heritage intertwined with rich foliage, or on our garden terrace with its scented flowers and lush tropical plantings. If it's a special occasion, why not book our intimate gazebo table set within the garden which gives you additional privacy in a rustically romantic setting.
