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"

“An entertaining evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2014

This is a venue for a special occasion: the food is good though rather expensive but the chief attraction is the entertainment. On the evening we were there the girl singer was excellent, she had a powerful classically trained voice. Although her choice of material was unfamiliar to me, she performed beautifully with a piano accompaniment. They have about 3 or 4 different acts, each performing for about 30 minutes. There are 2 roving musicians (accordion & violin) who stroll around the tables. After the meal and the entertainment, you can dance. It is worth booking a table near the stage and dance floor or at least where you can see what's going on. Nice setting.

“Disappointed ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014 via mobile

We read the reviews on this site and booked a table here during our holiday to costa adeje. The setting in the garden was lovely and the service good. However I was unable to even cut my chicken dish never mind chew it! They did offer to replace it but by the time a new dish is cooked and brought out, your partner is finished. So quite disappointed with this place unfortunately.

“Spoil Yourself”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

A beautiful restaurant for a relaxing and special meal. The service is first class, the food and wine .excellent and there is no rush, you are served at a pace to suit you .We visited last year and made a point of going twice this year. The setting is beautiful and there is live music from 8.30.If you want to treat yourself it's well worth a visit.

“Worth a vist.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

Went here a couple of times in June 2014. The food is well cooked & a decent selection. Entertainment on a weekend is entertaining & varied, on the last w/e visit there was a young female "opera" singer who was very good & well worth listening too, followed by a standard turn if you like a dance.
