CROWDY AND GOOD

one way to determine the quality of the place is the amount of people in a restaurant. If you walk down in cava baja in madrid, you can get a taste of this, you can see empty palces and crowded places. so, there might be some differences, isn't it? indeec casa lucio was cworded and very good. the... read more

Albert, my boyfriend, told us we have to try the eggs with the potatoes. So we did. It was as good as he told us it will be, great traditional Spanish meal. When there - try also the txacoli (wine from the basc country). Sweet and good.

Going to Madrid and try some tipycal food from there, so go to Casa Lucio. The most popular food is the simplest one: Huevos estrellados. This is broken fried eggs on french fries potatoes. It is a very popular restaurant in Madrid and a lot of famous people: writers, cinema directors, actors, top models or the king of Spain Rey... More

The truth is that it is very hard to eat bad in Madrid (or was I simply lucky?). If you wish to try all typical dishes and spend an evening in pleasant, typical setting - go for it. I found all courses very correct & tasty, the staff is extremely well trained and friendly. The tables are set very close... More

If you go to one restaurant in Madrid, come here. Very typical atmosphere, very good, authentic service (but don't expect chatter, just efficient, friendly service). It is not cheap.

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

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.
