Casa Lucio attracts many diners: locals, in the know tourists, even the Spanish King and Queen and state and foreign dignitaries, not to mention many of our American Presidents and Ambassadors and it's easy to see why. Enter owner Lucio who has been a fixture at the restaurant for years until he took over and made it his own in... More

Bit of a labyrinth of rooms some of which seem a bit crowded. Enjoyed the food. Saw Mario Vargas Llosa there!

This was a very good restaurant which we were delighted to find. The food was very good and fresh and the menu was quite extensive. The steaks were massive and none of us were able to finish them off. The wine list was also extensive and not too pricey.

RESERVE if you want to get a table and try to be seated downstair: a must. If you have to wait, the bar will... More

We recently ate at this restaurant after my husband's family (from Spain) insisted we have dinner here one night. It was absolutely amazing. We all (my husband and I and our two (young) girls) loved it. The food was delicious and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We tried everything they suggested and it exceeded our expectations.

We were made to feel welcome and was well looked after. The food was very good and plenty of it. Note though that if you want the special madrid stew they serve that on Wednesday lunchtime. A nice touch was that the owners daughter gave us a souvenir newspaper which showed the very many presidents and personalities who have dined... 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.
