Sub par at best. People don’t come for the food - they come here because it’s a Guinness word record holder for oldest destination (although it isn’t technically true). They know they’re a tourist destination (read: trap) and they know it so they don’t even...More

Oldest continuously operating restaurant in Madrid. Famous for its suckling pig. It was good, but I’ve had better. Good friendly service. Very nice antique locale.

Two words summarized our visit to Botin - Cochinillo (roast suckling pig), and old (oldest continuous operating restaurant in the world, since 1725). The cochinillo is excellent; we have tried plenty of Chinese / Cantonese style roast suckling pigs in the past, and while Chinese...More
