Sobrino de Botín
The undisputed king of Madrid’s old establishments, Sobrino de Botín is not only Madrid’s oldest restaurant, but the oldest restaurant in the entire world, having been founded in 1725. It has the Guinness World Record certificate in its window to prove it. Specializing in roast suckling pig, Botín is the place to visit for a true slice of history and a banquet-sized meal. It was a favorite stomping ground of Ernest Hemingway, who used to write in the empty dining room on mornings, before enjoying a huge lunch with friends.
