My Daughter and I ate in El Mago last year and thoroughly enjoyed the food. The lamb was the best I had ever eaten. My Daughter had the fillet steak which was cooked to perfection. We have just recently been back to Tenerife and El Mago was on our list of restaurants. The menu had changed slightly but was still just as good. We had the Strogonoff which I would highly recommend along with the steak. We had the stuffed mushrooms stuffed with veg, the best starter I have ever had, it was so tasty. The menu is different to the normal run of the mill restaurants which makes El Mago so special. The staff are very friendly the restaurant is very clean and the views are lovely. Look forward to my next visit there.

Like others who have reviewed this restaurant in Costa Adeje, we went there for dinner every night. The best part of the menu is the House Specialities, shoulder of lamb, paella, fillet steak to die for, garlic prawns, etc. and a great selection of good value wine. the staff are very helpful and friendly, and the setting is very relaxed and informal. The view over the Atlantic ocean is so relaxing and romantic. Don't miss the chance to go - this restaurant stands head and shoulders over its competitors.

We stayed in Adeje and visited El Mago, worth a visit and can highly recommend the slow cooked shoulder of lamb. We went twice, and had the lamb both times. The staff are friendly and the place clean and tidy. Certainly not the most expensive place we ate, and would highly recommend it. If, like me you hate being accosted by every person standing outside a restaurant trying to entice you in, and in the end you walk away and don't know where to eat, go straight here... you won't be disappointed. They were great with kids.

We also ate at the restaurant downstairs as noticed it seemed packed every time we walked by so took that as a good sign, was slightly disappointed although must say the steak was huge and cooked nicely and you get a lot on your plate, lots of sloppy cabbage and carrots though, the house wine wasn't great or too chilled either. It seemed to be full of ex pats taking advantage of a massive average tasting portion of food for not much money.... wouldn't go there again. But if you like that type of thing you might like it.

We were staying at the Jardin Tropical and the El Mago is only 100 yards from the hotel.

Tripadvisor reviews had encouraged us to give it a try and we weren't disappointed. In fact we loved it so much we went every night of our 5 night holiday. The food was terrific, the shoulder of lamb to die for and the Fillet was as good as I've had anywhere. It's not the cheapest but was worth every penny. Way cheaper than the hotel prices and the view was gorgeous. Staff couldn't do enough for you and we annoyed the guy downstairs who tried to get us into his restaurant every evening we went for the steps to El Mago

The restaurant is situated upstairs but this just means a great terrace with great views of the ocean. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

March 30 2010 - my husband just return from Tenerife and found El Mago one of the nicest places to eat. They are a little more high end but well worth the extra money. The service was subperb, food tasty and the sunset view romantic. If we ever go back to Tenerife we will definitely go back to El Mago restaurante.
