Botin dates back to 1725, and little appears to have changed since it opened, including some of the waiters. The dining rooms, on the second and third floors of a building near Plaza Mayor, are a study in old Madrid, with dark wood–beamed ceilings, black-and-white checkerboard tile floors, and lots of bullfighter pictures on the walls. It's not just 18th-century charm that keeps this place popular with Madrileños; Botin also serves some of the finest suckling pig and roast lamb (cooked in an ancient wood-burning oven) in the city. Be warned: This is a meat eater's paradise, and you'll be greeted at the door by shelves of piglets in clay dishes awaiting their fate in the oven.

Open Mondays through Sundays 1:30 pm to midnight.
