Sobrino De Botin - Review
Grab a bite at the oldest restaurant in the city. Oh sorry, I meant the oldest in the country. What?? … the oldest in the world? Really? All the time since 1725? Spoken of in literary classics? Try the roast suckling pic (a favourite of Ernest Hemingway), the roast lamb and the baby eels. You’ll be eating in a vaulted cellar.
Also, visit nearby attractions which are covered in Madrid itinerary 1 day.

Sobrino De Botin, Madrid Reviews
If you didn't know, this is in the Guinness book of world records as the oldest continuously running restaurant in the world. Famous for its 300 year old continuously running wood burning oven. That be known. I had the true pleasure of taking my parents there for their anniversary, they had dinner there 53 years ago on there honeymoon. The food Is spectacular, and the service is TOP notch. It is expensive, you should plan for $75 a person on an average. That included 2 apps 1 bottle of reasonable wine, an entree and dessert. Well worth every cent.
Very hospitable and very friendly. I went without reservation as I wanted to see the restaurant, and as I was on my own I didn’t think I would get a table. I spoke to the staff stating that I just wanted to take a few pictures, and maybe order a dessert at a quiet table, but the waiter was kind enough to give me a whole table at a prime location in the restaurant while there were still queues of tourists waiting. The staff were very attentive throughout my whole experience, and it was a lovely ambience: worth a visit!
Good, antique place. People say its the most antique restaurant of the world. Also that Hemingway recommended the sucking pork. Yes the place is nice and you will find many many foreigners trying to live the experience but locals will tell you there are better food in other places. Anyway. If you go there. Try the sucking pork or gaspacho. By the way... The portion is big.
The location is superb, the staff is nice and welcoming (After dinner they also gave us a tour of the building). I tried the famous pig and I liked it, but my lady got a veal steak that was completely plain and tasteless. The potatoes we got as side were also quite tasteless. Dessert was very good. Overall we had a nice time, but the place is way too overpriced for the quality of the food. The price and the quality of the food was partially made up for by the historical building which was really cool.
we went there after a joining the walking tour, it was recommended by the guide. we had pork and lamb, which was their signature dishes, but it was just average. we had the table downstairs in the rectangular cellar, our table was just at the entrance of the kitchen and near the stairscase. unfortunately there was no other free table at the back, it would be much better to sit away from the staircase. during our meal 5-6 waiters had been chatting loudly all the time next to us outside the kitchen, there was once we were surrounded by waiters chatting over us, I found it so disturbing while I tried to enjoy my food and chat to my family. i wont recommend to others. just taking picture outside the restaurant or at the guided tour will be good enough.
