Read mixed reviews about Botin but decided to go ahead with the reservation as their suckling pig is one of the best rated in Madrid! I must say the experience has been excellent! We were given a table in the basement which is truly unique...More

I have been visiting Botins for years with family , friends and solo and have always given hight ratings until now. This last visit was very disappointing and, frankly, poor. It felt like a tourist conveyor belt ! Items simply placed on table for you...More

Went with my wife and another couple out of interest in Hemmingway. Food excellent. I had the legendary suckling pig and my wife's hake was also excellent. It was very busy. Staff were a bit blunt but very efficient.

Four of us went there on 29/07/2019. The food was less than average. The communication with staff was minimal. The wine was not great. It was overpriced. The good thing was there was no crazy music as there is in other Madrileño restaurants.

We ended up eating there 2/3 nights in Madrid. The original draw was the fact that it is the oldest restaurant in the world, with an oven used from 1725. The pig suckling was delicious and the strawberries with cream were divine. But the reason...More

According to Guinness book of world records, this is the oldest restaurant on the planet. The food is truly Ibéric and the establishment old and genuinely authentic. Good service but slightly over priced. The suckling pig was very good as was the roast lamb

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel concierge. The food is homely, generous in portions but lacked the essential flavour of Spain we were hoping to enjoy, My roast chicken was basic, and my husband’s roast pork was dry and lacked the succulence of...More

It depends on how much wine you have; but a good dinner with one appetizer, two entrees, one bottle of wine and desert would range around 100 Euros. It is worth it! We had the Cochinillo it was excellent.
