Restaurante Botin – World’s Oldest Restaurant (Guinness World Record)

Restaurante Botin in Madrid, Spain, was founded in 1725 and is the world’s oldest restaurant according to the Guinness Book of Records. According to Wiki, the restaurant was founded by a french man Jean Botin and his spouse, and was originally called Casa Botín. The official Botin website says that the restaurant continues to be run by the third generation of the family. Miss A and I had a chance to try Botin in 2008 and I was so excited to be able to dine in such a historic location!!

And of course, selfie to show how happy I was to dine at this special Restaurante Botin 🙂

Highly recommended if you are already all the way in Madrid! Great food and most importantly to experience a well preserved restaurant that has survived almost 300 years. It is not often we in Singapore get to experience such a long standing piece of history 🙂
