AOL Travel Editor’s Review

The oldest restaurant in Madrid, Botín has been serving up traditional Spanish cuisine since 1725. It attracts a large proportion of out-of-towners and a good showing of locals, as well. The product of its wood-fired oven (which also dates to 1725) is traditional Castilian fare such as roast lamb. There are four dining rooms, from the upper story with its bright tiles and high windows, to the cozy old cellar with its brick arches. The food, décor and service are as good as any in the “traditional Spanish” category, but the crowds of loud foreigners mar the atmosphere a bit.

  My group ate here in 2009. The food was phenomenal....roast suckling pig..their specialty. Service and atmosphere were equally phenomenal as well.
