Worth a visit - fun and very busy

This restaurant is on a lot of people's recommendation list when visiting Madrid. Pleasingly though the clientel is a mix of tourists and locals creating a busy and vibrant atmosphere. One tip - be prepared to be choosy and pushy about the table you are given - if you don't ask you will be sat... read more

This place is very cool, to start off with. Jamon hanging at the bar - of course! The wine we ordered was cold, and placed on ice right away. The salad I ordered had HUGE chunks of tuna, boiled potatoes, egg...very very tasty. The appetizers are really good too! Salmorejo was awesome! The place has a great feel to it.... More

We ate here with a large group (18) and were not disappointed. We sat at a long table in the upstairs dining area, which made us feel a part of the ambience instead of being hidden away in a private dining room. Even with so many of us, the service was excellent. The menu offered all the classic Spanish dishes... More

My family and I visited here on a recommendation, 5 of us were seated and we noticed many people had made an effort to dress up which was nice. The service was impeccable and the wine (house red) was gorgeous. But the food just wasnt great. The garlic chicken was on a bed or soggy/greasy chips, the prawns and mushrooms... More

I've been there with 2 local friends in April and we tasted some egg-based dishes. super delicious! The place was crowded and gave me "positive vibration" , though prices are a bit high for young travellers. They told me the young-old owner runs 4 different places under the same name, on the same street! This must mean something :) I... More

Went there because we were told we could have some of the best made fried eggs in Spain and frankly, it didn't disappoint us. Traditional food, quite pricey, but it was worth it.

We love this restaurant, the food perfect and service excellent. They mixed up our request to have our favorite waiter Adolfo But we were pleasantly surprised with his replacement.... They never fail.....

It is a traditional and classic restaurant in Madrid where you can appreciate some Spanish classic dishies like Huevus rotos (not sure about the spelling) and deserts like pan perdido. Don Lucio, 82, the owner is usually around tables and chats with customers.

Crowded restaurant in the old quarters. Must book. Their famous egg dish is a must. Ask the waiter for suggestions. Reasonably priced.

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 local Spanish cuisine.... 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.
