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"

We have been to this restaurant several times before over the years, and chose it for our special meal out to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed! After a lovely starter, we had the Chatteau Briand, which was cooked to perfection, expertly carved and served. For a special treat, we had the Crepes Suzette, which was cooked at the table, and has to rate as one of the best ones that I have eaten. The entertainment was ok, but that's not what we were there for.

Helpful friendly staff, including the receptionist who took our reservation earlier in the day. We spent a fair amount of beverages, but it was very worthwhile. Needless to say, we will be back. Its not the cheapest place to eat, but well worth the cost. Give it a try, I'm sure you wont be disappointed.

After passing the restaurent a few times and spotting how nice it looked we decided to have a meal here . We could not get over how nice the place was and spotless . It was the perfect setting for romantic meal . The service was brilliant and the food better still and can honestly say we ve have not had a meal as good anywhere in the uk . Unfortunately due to having 2 young kids with us we did not stay for the entertainment but still had a great time so good we went again before we coming back . I would recommend coming here to anyone who go s to Tenerife . Some people might complain about the prices but you pay for what you get and its worth every penny here

Our hotel receptionist recommended this restaurant as we told them we had a special occasion to celebrate. We did not have to pay for the 10 min taxi journey to El Molino Blanco as the restaurant had provided our hotel with free/gratis taxi voucher to get guests to the restaurant (one-way only). We had read the reviews and asked to be seated indoors. What a fabulous night! We had meat paella which was 36 euros for the two of us. The food was nice however you are actually going to this establishment for the entertainment. We saw four singers, including the brilliant singing chef and everyone in there was in a jovial mood & many people seemed to be celebrating a birthday/special occasion. Many customers got up for a dance & the atmosphere was great.

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.
