Casa Lucio has to be one of my favorite restaurants when visiting Madrid! It's dishes are made up of the most authentic Spanish recipes and they definitely know how to make your mouth water! Casa Lucio is a very distinguished restaurant in Madrid so my recommendation is making reservation in advance! I have visited twice now in two different years... More

Not a great expirience. The salads are nice but heavily dressed. The squid and aubergine were undercooked, poor batter and low grade frying oil. We left most of these. Everyone was eating eggs and chips. As it was busy everyone was hassled through as quick as possiable. There must be better eating places.

The one we wanted to go is under renovation so our hotel booked its sister restaurant just opposite. Earliest reservation is 8:30. We were greeted by someone who couldn't careless. Everything we wanted to order apparently were not good according to our waiter! So we then ordered everything he recommended. We had ham and scrambled eggs for starters and steaks... More

Crammed tables, difficult to book, not central. You read in reviews that it is visited by celebrities but there is nothing really special about it. The food is OK, the prices a bit high, and the waiters don't speak English! We had to ask for the help of the people eating at a nearby table to order.

I visited this restaurant with my wife and we had an exceptional meal. We ovviously tried the huevos which were very nice but quite hard to get excited about egg and chips. The leg of lamb and steak tartare were, however, exceptional and we washed it all down with a well recommended bottle of Ribera. I can't wait for my... More

I called for reservations at 20.30 and was told they were full. I persisted and was told to come at 22.45, which I confirmed to be 21.45! Had drinks at the bar, and got a table at 22.00! Outstanding service and very good food. Egg dishes and calamari were the standouts. A wonderful evening?

We didn't have a reservation but stopped for a late dinner like 10 pm. Very well recieved, great food had the Huevos Casa Lucio, which although sounds simple is great, Potatoes with scrambled egg. Had the typical ham. Service was nice, our waiter was very helpful. Would definitely be back. Best dessert in out trip to Spain.

My friend and I stopped by for lunch without a reservation, after seeing it recommended in a Frommers guide. We ended up grabbing the last open table (I think we arrived around 2pm?). There was no waiting area -- you're either seated or turned away. Our waiter was nice and courteous, and took our orders promptly. We shared the churrasco... More

Having previously had an excellent night at 'Eggs of Lucio', the junior offshoot of this place, and having had to book here 3 nights in advance, so busy was it, we arrived with high hopes - dashed within seconds of arriving. On coming through the door, we found a couple of staff chatting in the 'cloakroom' on the left hand... More

Casa Lucio is a Madrid staple. Has been around for decades. Hard to get reservations, but not for it's elegant or chic interior. Simple, traditional decor and food. The kicker is that it it food done properly and with exceptional service. Wait staff is extremely efficient and courteous. Our waiter (Ivan) had us in stitches as well as keeping us... More
