The food, service and ambiance excellent. These are real pros. They do not take chances. From the moment you enter restaurant you feel the precence and the energy.

My expectations were very high, since everybody recommended it, however I think it was not something special. We had better dinners that did not cost that much elsewhere in Madrid.

On our recent trip p, nothing apparently says Madrid more than here. So we thought. The waiting staff, especially the maitre'd were as rude as you can imagine. Being here in Spain this was shocking as this is a country full of fabulous service and care. Once into this awful place we ordered food, good grief, a truck stop would... More

Not what I expected, this is a very authentic Spanish restaurant, packed with locals. It was recommended by our local leader, feedback from the team was very positive all round, just watch out as there are some rather odd dishes like tripe which I avoided. The most bizarre is egg and chips which is a favoured local delicacy! Worth a... More

How can a simple dish of eggs over potatoes taste so heavenly! I had this dish as a starter instead of entree. I plan to try and recreate this dish at home! The service is excellent. The wait staff is formal, yet friendly. Wish I could go there again!

You are greeted at the door with a complimentary glass of champagne. Service is excellent, food is delicious and reasonably priced. 3 courses with wine were 60 Euro total. Make sure to try their famous broken eggs.. french fries covered in runny eggs. Mmmmm so good.

We always eat at casa lucio when in Madrid it never disappoints, lovely atmosphere and fantastic food, we have to book to ensure we get a table especially if we want to go at the weekend. It would spoil our trip if we couldn't eat there

Some Spanish friends took us to Casa Lucio for dinner and we were impressed with their choice. The famous dish here was a surprise for us-- A plate of potatoes cut as "french fries" and topped with poached or coddled eggs. It looked odd to our eyes but tasted delicious. We agreed that it is an unusual but uniquely tasty... More

You can't beat this in Madrid or for that matter in Spain. The Patriarch Lucio still gracious with his customers. Great boquerones, piquillos, huevos estrellados etc. Well balanced menu. And in addition very fair prices of food and wines with unbeatable service and authentic madrileño ambiance. Don' t miss this restaurant in the beautiful old Madrid.

This formal restaurant is very charming and accented in wood, and well located. Service is appropriately excellent and attentive. The food is traditional and prepared with pride. I had a starter of a half order of their special for that day of white bean stew, which had in it black pudding, chorizo, and big chunks of bacon. It was delicious.... More
