Very Good, Historic Madrid Restaurant

The restaurant offered great service, good food, and a fine historic (at least compared to the US) setting. Very enjoyable, and highly recommended, particularly if you are trying to have a traditional sit-down dinner.

TRadition. The best word to describe this place. Best eggs with chips in town. It sounds dificultless to cook that but when you try them, you know what I´m talking about. Meat also delicious. The price might be an inconvenience.

Several people told me about this place, I receive some tips before like: make a reservation with anticipation, go during the night and order whatever you want all is good. Restaurant schedules is 13:00 to 16:00 and 20:30 to 24:00, we arrive 20:15 and wait in a line of 20 persons, assignation was fast and service faster. Inside the restaurant,... More

I visited Casa Lucio with my partner on the recommendation from a Spanish friend and the hotel concierge that it wasn't to be missed. On the entering the restaurant, we weren't greeted by anyone at the door. There is a bar right at the entrance which made it a bit chaotic and it took a few minutes to get the... More

If you are seeking a family place to have a good time, and try the famous spanish egg dish "huevos estrellados" look no further! This is the place. The rest of the food was good definitely not a Wow! Standard spanish fare but not superb. Always honored to meet Mr. Lucio in Person. Our parents, 60-70 age range, had a... More

Intimate restaurant with perfect tapas and a good selection of vines to accompany. Prices over average, but well worth it. Tip: very popular place so remember to book in advance.

This place makes you feel like you are invited in a traditional spanish home. Perfect for those who want to explore what a real spanish dish is like. Although my cochinillo was salty which i was not surprised because this is the 3rd restaurant ib Madrid that i've got a salty dish. Maybe it's what they like in here. Pork... More

Staying in La Latina

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.
