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. 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"

The atmosphere is excellent and the singing chef is a treat !

Food is ok and has improved over the last year, but its still well worth a visit.

I'd done a fair amount of research before taking my girlfriend away on holiday on where and how i could pop the question. El Molino Blanco (the White Windmill) came up a few times and so i went to their website. Look at the virtual tour and you'll get a feel for how stunning the restaurant is. I chose it hoping for the best and it was.

Everything was perfect about the night, i'd emailed the restaurant and they'd reserved a special table (always book ahead and they will really treat you well) in a really romantic part. Throughout the evening all the staff were brilliant and made us feel really specialThey helped arrange when the question could be asked and really made us feel at ease (me most of all!) It is such a romantic setting any girl will love it.

The food is amazing, the live music is brilliant and the atmosphere inside or outside is brilliant.

Would recommend to everyone i know and will be pushing them to make sure they visit should they ever go to tenerife.

It's about 5 euros each way in a taxi from the centre of Playa de las Americas, and the food is priced no different to a decent restaurant in the UK (we paid £85 for a 3 course meal with 2 bottles of wine and champagne...so not bad!)

Enjoy it!

Ps. Thanks to ALL the staff at El Molino Blanco for helping create the perfect night

We got in a taxi at 10pm on our last night in Tenerife and said to the driver - can you take us to the best restaurant around here for couples please? He dropped us off here, and we weren't disappointed!

Stunning setting - we sat outside in the vineyard, lit with fairy lights, fountain trickling away, some parrots in a cage nearby. Classy.

The food when it came was fresh, high quality, and reasonably priced. We were the last to eat there and they didn't rush us. Nice staff.

Hiiiiiighly recommended for couples. Get your table booked. It's as good as any other restaurant in the area.

Visited Tenerife again this September and just had to have a night out at the El Molino Blanco Restaurant again. We had an excellent meal cooked to perfection and the musical cabaret was superb. Take your friends and your family and be treated like film stars. If it is a special occasion so much the better.
