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 Windmill....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

We went there for a special friend's birthday. We had a great time. Food was good, plenty of choice a place for a special evening. Entertainment was excellent, the Singer/Pianist was brilliant and the other act Violinist/ Accordionist made you want to get up and dance, which we did!
Staff were very attentive.

“Fantastic Night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

We have been to this restaurant so many times we have lost count. We understand it is now under new management but it still looked the same. It was quiet but everywhere in Tenerife at the moment seems quiet. What made up for that was the entertainment. The singer and piano player were simply the best! And when the singer played the piano at the end of the session - incredible! We are going back again. Our only niggle was the food wasn't the best but we had a fab night.

“Still the best Barraquitos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

Have visited this place each time we've visited Tenerife but unfortunately are budget couldn't quite stretch to a full blown meal this time.

However, couldn't pass up the opportunity to have a couple of barraquitos (coffees) and as always they're delicious.

Staff were very busy and seemed a little stressed running around but we sat at the bar and didn't have to wait very long and service was friendly and efficient.

Till the next time!

“Disappointing evening”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

As this was the last day of our family holiday we were saving the best for last but unfortunately this rustic restaurant fell short of our expectations. We had a warm welcome and overall the service was good. However the menu was limited and in our opinion overpriced and we struggled to find something to our liking. The food was okay but we have had much better during our stay in Tenerife. There were very few people in the restaurant which surprised us as it was a Friday night.

The live entertainment was pleasant but suited more to an 'older' audience.
