What a great restaurant! Do not miss it!

My family and I asked around and several locals recommended casa lucio. We almost did not go because it was a bit out of the way for us.... I am glad we changed our mind. Casa Lucio is a charming and deceivingly large restaurant with expert service and a steady stream of locals coming in to eat... read more

We stopped for a bite after las pulgas. Busy, but they seated us quickly, tables turn fast. Ordered the huevos rotos with jamon, the confit artichokes with beetroot chips, and the grilled octopus. Best huevos I've ever had, even in Zaragoza. The artichokes were great. The pulpo was grilled perfectly and served with mashed potatoes, the sauce was too heavy... More

An traditional restaurant where you most probably will meet the owner and creator of this restaurant. The restaurant is on the higher end of the price list, but there is value for money. The place is perfect for a business dinner, you can easily get a table where you can be more isolated. The egg and potatoes is really good.

We LOVED our lunch at this highly-popular (but not 'touristic') Madrid specialty restaurant... our table for two made for ideal 'people-watching' as nearby Spanish couples & groups enjoyed their local cuisine choices. Mouth-wateringly tempting omelettes, braised 'rabo de toro' (ox-tail), garlic chicken, & vegetable dishes flowed smoothly from the busy kitchen. 'Miguel', our excellent 'camerero' (waiter, speaks English) assisted our... More

Everything about this eating experience is wonderful...so long as you have a reservation. So many people turned away...but that's because it's soooo good. The service is very nice and helpful: the food is delicious: and the atmosphere is bustling. My wife and I ate there two days in a row and had the same items...the pardon peppers, the jabugo ham,...

You will talk many months after about this place. Kingdom of good food and typical madrilene atmosphere it is my favourite place in madrid to eat and I am sure you will share my opinion. When you order your food you can close your eyes because you can't miss. Every dish is better than other

The place is crowded and small, employees barely speak English. The food is good but not different than somewhere else.

Reccommended by a local and a friend that had been there before, even ex-rey Juan Carlos is a usual patron here; We just had to try this place! It was superb, dishes were simple yet so flavourful and hearty. Be sure to order a bottle of wine! It gets really busy, so make sure you have a reservation. We didnt... 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.
