Expert review of El Molino Blanco

A singing chef to go with your chateaubriand in this popular nightspot.

As the name suggests, it's the white windmill at the side of the flyover that first catches the eye in this quirky cabaret restaurant. Inside, you'll find that the noise of the road is lost to beautiful tropical gardens and a cornucopia of Canarian artifacts. With a singing chef and resident trio to provide the music, this is a nightly dinner dance for the over 60s.

Food and drink: 

There is a nice menu of Canarian/Mediterranean fusion dishes which are well prepared and presented. The restaurant also has a good, and expensive, wine list of local and Spanish mainland wines.

Ambience: 

It'a mainly more mature visitors who enjoy a post-dinner dance to the cabaret. It's popular with groups too. Rod Stewart dined here on his last visit to Tenerife but as he didn't invite me to join him, I can't share the pics with you.

Service: 

The service can be understandably erratic at their busiest times.

Location: 

Alongside a busy road on the upper side of the motorway, it's a taxi ride away from the resort centres.

Price advice: 

Prices are on the high side in my opinion. Expect to part with around 50 euros a head for three courses without drinks.

Tables to book: 

The corners may look nice and intimate but you'll be left to go hungry there. Stay central where you're under the waiters' noses and feet.
