There are so many bad and good reviews on this restaurant its tough to decide to go or not.
I would totally suggest going. You will never forget it. This is the oldest restaurant in the world. The experience was awesome. The food its self...More
You may have read about the horrible service and bland food yadda yadda blah blah blah. Well we beg to differ. We made reservations and asked to be seated in the oldest part of the restaurant which is the lower level. We were seated promptly....More
Had dinner here a few days ago. Ordered the items marked with Cap Letters on their menu as there are the so-to-speak Specialties of Botin. Had Botin salad, garlic soup, lamb and sangria.
Services were mediocre - he gave us the impressions that we all...More
Probably other staff are kinder but this guy was extremely rude and unprofessional. Do NOT lie to your guests about how you organise your guests around the restaurant. We would've been fine if you gave us the real explanation for not giving us the seats...More
Whilst in Madrid we thought we would experience the oldest restaurant in the world.
We had roast suckling pig and the roast lamb. Both were very tasty and massive portions.
Staff very friendly and polite. Would definitely recommend.
We booked 'The Botin Experience" (through Insider's Madrid) and Phil was our excellent guide on 10/31/18! The tour was comprehensive and lasted about an hour during which we learned a great deal about the history of this restaurant which has been operating in the same...More
We had dinner here in December. I had the filet mignon and my friends had the veal and lamb. The plating was boring. Three potatoes and a piece of meat. No sauce. No ambition to make it interesting. The steak was ok at best. Not...More
this is the oldest restaurant around the world, and you'll notice the quality of his service. You can find here the traditional Spanish food, I lie if I said this is the best food I ever taste but it's delicious. The service is excellent, professional...More
I was just at this restaurant for Thanksgiving with the family and had what I would call the worst steak I have ever paid for. On the menu it is described as 400 grams of meat except it is maybe 250 and the other 150...More
The very fact that the restaurant is the oldest permanently working restaurant for 300 hundred years intrigues. The staff is not young but works swiftly. The administrator invited to take photos of the kitchen, basement, etc. Our group has chosen the house menu. The suckling...More

Hi it is open for lunch we went here for lunch and loved it, please note that you need to book this restaurant in advance because it's very popular you can visit the website for this restaurant and book a slot time it's very easy and they will email you back to confirm all very reassuring, it really is charming and lively place to eat but make sure you mention you want cellar table not upstairs it's by far the nicer part of the restaurant for photos and the wine cellar down a floor from cellar restaurant.
Enjoy it we loved it, we had suckling pig and the Lamb both fantastic.

We had made a reservation for eight people and when we showed up at the restaurant, our table was ready. One of the members in my party was in charge of making the reservation and since he was staying at the Westin Palace Madrid, I bet he did it through the concierge. Concierges have many special ways to connect with many places because they are always calling for reservations and they might have priority.

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.
