My friend and I stopped by for lunch without a reservation, after seeing it recommended in a Frommers guide. We ended up grabbing the last open table (I think we arrived around 2pm?). There was no waiting area -- you're either seated or turned away. Our waiter was nice and courteous, and took our orders promptly. We shared the churrasco... More

Having previously had an excellent night at 'Eggs of Lucio', the junior offshoot of this place, and having had to book here 3 nights in advance, so busy was it, we arrived with high hopes - dashed within seconds of arriving. On coming through the door, we found a couple of staff chatting in the 'cloakroom' on the left hand... More

Casa Lucio is a Madrid staple. Has been around for decades. Hard to get reservations, but not for it's elegant or chic interior. Simple, traditional decor and food. The kicker is that it it food done properly and with exceptional service. Wait staff is extremely efficient and courteous. Our waiter (Ivan) had us in stitches as well as keeping us... More

Tried Casa Lucio on advice of our hotels' receptionist. We arrived dressed up for a night on the town, but were treated miserably by the surly wait staff. The food was unexceptional and inhospitable waiters made us feel unwanted. We were so excited to experience what we had hoped was going to be a fabulous dining experience, but left very... More

Several slightly relaxed Brits were squeezed in to this restaurant last minute and we had a selection of dishes recommended by the staff. Everything was great. We had a great evening and felt really lucky to have stumbled on this place. The patron came to say hi, although I think he found us a little noisy, he was welcoming and... More

I was in Casa Lucio because a friend of mine from Madrid invited me. I don't know if this restaurant has a good value for money but food was great. I tried the famous "huevos de Lucio" and a T-Bone steak afterwards which was exquisite. The service can't be better! And although Lucio, the owner, doesn't deal with customers nowadays,... More

This restaurant located on the narrow Calle Cava Baja is officially called, "Taberna de los Huevos Lucio," and from the outside it is obviously a favorite of the locals. Our group of 3 couples were the only turistas at the restaurant, but we felt welcomed and well-treated by staff and nearby diners. We were seated at a table that was... More

Casa Lucio is a Madrid classic. If you go to Madrid must have their famous huevos estrellados! Fast service, delicious food. Most of the guests are locals. This is THE place for authentic Madrid cuisine.

If you want an informal taste of Madrid, this is the place. A classic venue with an authentic style, the service is friendly and typically Spanish, the wine list is simple but excellent (try the 2009 Rioja), and the food is delicious. We had some tapas to start, followed by Churrasco - a sizzling beef fillet for two, served rare... More

Service is rushed, staff arrogant, atmosphere stuffy and almost everything comes with fries. A well established, local restaurant who's client a over the years seem to have gone to its head.
