Definitely a tourist trap but one that you must go as Botin is the oldest restaurant in the world per Guinness WR. The restaurant has 4 levels with a great ambiance and plenty of corridors with great detail. We made reservations over the internet for a party of 4. We were seated in the basement/wine cellar which was great. Although it was crowded for dinner on a weekend, the waiters were very attentive and polite. We wanted to order the whole suckling pig for the table but it is only for a party of 6 but the waiter brought out a whole pig and we took pictures allowing others at tables to do the same. It was great as we got to hear all the great comments about the food and wine from the people all around us. The waiter gave us 4 menus to take with us as a souvenir. The suckling pig and lamb shanks were delicious and the meal came with wine and dessert all in all the price was very reasonable for Madrid.
