Botin Restaurant – The Oldest in the World

Botin Restaurant in Madrid is touted as the “Oldest Restaurant in the World.” Such prestige is confirmed and awarded by the Guinness World of Record. The restaurant has been serving food since 1725! Yeah, 9 more years and the restaurant will be celebrating its existence for 300 years! Wow, right?

But, let me say this: I didn’t eat here. Not because it was expensive but I forgot my wallet at my apartment and I only had €20 with me. So, I told myself that I’d be back but I got busy with my summer course. I totally forgot this “must thing to do in Madrid.” However, most locals I talked to won’t really recommend it because it’s “for tourist only.” That’s their way of saying, “Ive never been there” 😀

Perhaps, the most famous waiter employed by Botin Restaurant is Francisco de Goya.
