Arrived in Madrid having been told this was a place to have a dining experience so during the day located the restaurant and booked a table for 2 at 8:00pm that same evening. When we arrived at 8:00pm we were greeted by a large queue. It felt like a queue to the sales. Seated on the 2nd floor we were given menus and the waiters wanted to take our order straight away. We sensed this was a "get them in, get them out restaurant" so ordered a glass of wine each and slowed the process down. I ordered the 2 house specialities - the soup with egg and cochinillo and was disappointed with both. The soup was bland and the cochinillo came with 3 potatoes - not very inspiring. As someone else has written only about 1/3 of the pig was edible and was ok but not worth the best part of ?25. Total bill for the evening was best part of ?100. I wouldn't recommend this unless you want to put a tick in the box and say you've dined at the oldest restaurant in the world.
