If you want to eat contemporary Spanish cuisine, don’t go to the world’s oldest restaurant. The food here is nice, but the real reason you should come here is for the experience. The restaurant has real character and you feel like it has changed very...More

This is a "must" place to go. Excellent food, the best service I had until now in Spain - waiters speaking Engish - and smiling (very rare in Spain). The environment is impressive (probably as it use to be for last 300 years). Highly recommended!

Very nice place where you are best to reserve in advance, we enjoyed a full lunch with croquets, asparagus, antichoc, the piglet as main course, (chicken was also very good). Service was good and efficient. Recommended.

I have no idea why reviews on here indicate the food was sub par. The suckling pig (why would you get anything else!) is to die for. Said to be the oldest restaurant in the world, the inside provides for a very cool atmosphere...almost feels...More

Since we did not make any reservation, we turned up just before it opened at 8pm and tried our luck. Luckily we got a table and were seated in the basement, which is quaint and atmospheric. Waiters were attentive and we had the entrecote steak,...More

It's the oldest restaurant in the world, lots of history, beautiful oven. Good service, decent food, I loved the pork suckling, however nothing exciting to accompany it, so it was a very dry meal. Enjoyed the Sangria. I enjoyed the experience overall, however this is...More

I guess all I can say is that we ate in the oldest restaurant. We had ordered the pig and lamb and both were horrible. The lamb had a ton of fat on it and the pig was the head of the pig and no...More

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as

We had the roasted suckling pig and vegetable etc (but no wine, only Sangria and juice). We paid less than 50 Euro.
