I was recommended this place by a local ... and was a bit worried about the lacklustre reviews from TripAdvisor but nonetheless booked here for lunch. Are we glad we did? This place was awesome. Ok it might not be everyone's cup of tea but it certainly was ours ... We booked in advance and had our table waiting for... More

I know that is the spanish culture to eat standing and very fast but i thought that there was too much. Too many people... Wine was good, Jamon iberico great and also the "Huevo rotos" good. It is a speciality... I didn't fall in love for this place but for something fast can't be an idea

Almost always, I find helpful reviews in TripAdvisor. However, for Casa Lucio, I was glad I ignored the lackluster opinions found in TripAdvisor and trusted the author Penelope Casas, expert on all things Spain, especially Spanish cooking: her esteem for this restaurant and its owner brought me here. And it was the absolute best meal we enjoyed in our two... More

There is only one thing you MUST do while in Casa Lucio, TRY THE HUEVOS ROTOS. Now a days it is almost impossible to get a table here so try the Tavern right next door (la Taberna de los huevos Lucio) where it is the same kitchen just in a first come first serve setting... Also a good plate of... More

Have been to Casa Lucio many times and always the food is excellent, but this time there was a unique dish, hard to come by of, fresh baby sea eels cooked in fantastic garlic oil. It was a TREAT! I'm still enjoying them.

Get an impression of what home made cooking is in central Spain. Traditional dishes in a typical tavern. A bit of a tourist trap, for Spanish tourists too. Efficient service.

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.
