Good place full of locals

We had a nice time there. Even though it was full around 10:30pm, they managed to find us a place. The service was quick and the food was good. You gotta try the huevos rotos and the fried eggplants.

We went to Casa Lucio thanks to the recommendation of one of our cab drivers. He told us Casa Lucio was one of the best places to eat in Madrid. We were greeted in the entrance by Lucio, the owner of the restaurant. He was very helpful and he even got us in (it is recommended you call beforehand to... More

We had dinner at Casa Lucio one of our nights in Madrid, and of course, it was delicious and very pleasant. Although you have plenty of dishes to choose from, we were advised by our great waiter to eat gambas al ajillo and mushrooms for appetizer, and then solomillo for dinner. For dessert we were given la torta de Santiago... More

Went there without reservation on a Sat evening. Luckily we arrived as they opened and they could fit us in. Food was great - it is authentic and very tasty. Can recommend the Churrasco beef dish (have to fry it yourself) and cinnamon rice pud for dessert. Service was friendly too. Would recommend to reserve a table though as it... More

The service was excellent and the food was fabulous. Definitely a must restaurant in Madrid. Don Lucio takes his time to greet his guests and makes sure everything is perfectly prepared.

A tradicional, yet alyays trendy family run restaurant specialliced in classis spanish dishes. Don't miss the famous "huevos rotos", broken eggs over a layer of fine fries and Jabugo ham. Attention is better if the owners know you already, not bad in general. Expect a ticket of some 70/80 € p/p for a good dinner with wine.

Having just arrived in Madrid our hotel front desk managed to secure a 10.30pm (kitchen stays open till midnight) reservation at Casa Lucio, a Madrid dining institution which has been operating since the 1970s. When we arrived Maestro Lucio himself happened to outside the restaurant being photographed and greeting visitors and passers by. The bar area in the front with... More

We managed to get a table for 10 on spec as we were passing looking for a place to eat. The menu scared us a bit with it's pickled partridge and tripe but the very helpful waiter suggested he bring us a variety of dishes to share. We were very pleased with what we got, the house speciality, lightly scrambled... More

Neighborhood Profile
La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighborhood with two unique personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is characterized by a young population and a bohemian vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other businesses popping up in the area. In the northern part of the neighborhood, the Cava Alta and Cava Baja streets constitute the tapas center of Madrid, where each age-old restaurant serves up distinctive specialties like huevos rotos and patatas bravas. Locals have come here for generations to while away hours over drinks and tapas with friends. On Sundays and public holidays, the streets to the south of La Latina metro station transform into a giant open-air market full of locals sifting through tent after tent of art, apparel, and antiques. Any day of the week, the intriguing blend of the traditional and the hip make the streets of La Latina worth exploring.
