Botín, Madrid

(3.9/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
Botín, founded in 1725, holds the Guinness Record for world’s oldest restaurant. It boasts quite a pedigree: Francisco de Goya worked here as a waiter and it’s mentioned in an Ernest Hemingway novel. For a special dinner out, consider the roast suckling pig, or, if you’ve partied until the early morning as Madrid’s residents often do, try the traditional garlic soup with a poached egg. The menu is available in English, and busy evenings here are accompanied by live music. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Madrid holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Botín and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • The restaurant is open from morning until 4 p.m. and then from 20.00, so if you come here keep in mind)), we would not have booked a table and the staff were very friendly and helpful, the food is very tasty, meat mjagchajshee; prices are above average, but the price = quality; the restaurant occupies the whole House in three floors. And they have a very tasty cake)) in General to visit required

  • I went with my partner this Sunday for lunch, once a freetour recommend it us, inform us "not high" price and the picturesque place, as soon as you enter seems that you transfer to another era, the site is worthwhile, we ate in the underground plant next to the stairs to the cellar, awesome food... a scrambled eggs with sausage and potatoes good , although something expensive, simile with the croquettes, were great, and the suckling pig... to say... very good piglet really, although of course 25e ration... very good desserts, 6e custard, is paid the site really brutal attention all plants were full of people, especially foreigners with paste of course, much Eastern... back to give me another caprichito, but within a time!

  • Oldest Restaurant in the world according to Guinness. Yes the place is expensive but its a five start. Great Cochinillo Suckling pig. The place is great you should try to peak to see the kitchen it is legendary. The best area is downstairs just pay attention to the stairs and everything around the tables. It's a must in Old Madrid area and a deserved stop no doubt
  • The food was not outrageously expensive. The roasted pork portion looked small when it arrived but was more than enough. The skin was so crisp to protect the delicate moist meat. I had a mid section of the 3 week old piglet. My wife had the roasted lamb and it was the whole entire leg and some more of a 3 month old baby lamb. The recipe stew was also good but a little too rich for me. The service was excellent and the waiter was very helpful with our strange questions.
  • I went here in August and it was the best meal I ate in all of Europe! Also, by far the best Sangria. I forgot to take a photo of the food, but it was amazing. They have a very small menu that they do fantastically well. Very reasonably priced for the fame, actually cost less than other restaurants in the area for even more food!
  • Excellent suckling pig. Very accommodating staff, they took care of the pram and my daughter's bike. Cramped dining rooms, but it contributes to the old atmosphere. Very good service, highly recommended
  • One of the oldest restaurant in Madrid. Ethnic look walls reflect age old culture tradition and how it has entered the modern era. Furniture gives a rich look of taste and feelings of a bygone era. Extremely sensitive people they make every stone unturned to leave you with grand memories for a life time. A must visit and recommend place. If you really do not know what to start with with out hesitation ask the nearest person around to guide you to wonderful starters main course followed by tongue twisting dessert of foodie world
