Of course the food is good, the wine is great, the building is old and famous...but none of that has meaning until Phil gives it to you! Amazing. You show up an hour before the restaurant opens, slide past all the grammers shooting their #posts...More

We had a fantastic tour guide,Phil, who was very knowledgeable on not only the restaurant, but also the entire city. He was very friendly and answered all the questions we had. I would recommend requesting Phil for any tour that is booked through this company!

As someone who loves to cook, I would 100% recommend visiting The Botin Tour and Lunch/Dinner with Meg! Meg is an awesome tour guide and made the experience worth while. Yes it's a tourist attraction but super unique and a must do when in Madrid!
