Botin: please don't go
I WAS QUITE DISAPPOINTED W/bOTIN. I used to go many years ago and it was considered the top for classical panish dining in an old world atmosphere. We went in January and food was so bad that I was sick all night long. The suckling pig is half cooked aand stored on an open display/showroom and obviously, full of bacterias.
The ambiance and service was more of a tacky tourist spot, no locals, extremely expensive and nothing was fresh
Favorite Dish: none
Botin: Madrid's oldest restaurant
Officially called El Sobrino de Botín, this restaurant is considered Madrid's oldest. It's been open since 1725 in Old Madrid, close to Plaza Mayor. The restaurant is on multiple levels: the ground floor room is beautiful with traditional Spanish decor, while the basement is vaulted and cavernous. I was concered that this would be a tourist trap, and the restaurant is popular with tourists, but was pleasantly surprised by the tasty food.
