Passed this little gem of a restaurant strolling around Madrid. Close to lunchtime we got intrigued by the loads of recommendations on the door and decided to give it a shot. Nice relaxed service (also english spoken), nice selection og good wines by the glass and very tasty, luxury but still somewhat simple tapas. We shared tuna with spring onion,... More

I ended up here by mistake, but couldn't be happier. My son and I sat at the bar. I had a Rioja and the Jumilla pastel de espinacas y puerros con gambas. It was delicious. Friendly staff, happy, light interior. And reasonable prices.

We loved this place! We got there right at opening (which is 8pm!). I would recommend getting here early since it filled up pretty quick-there are only a few tables in this little establishment. It's located on a street with a lot of great tapas bars actually. There was only one server so I'm glad we got there early so... More

Tried the oxtail and the black pasta, both were good but very pricey (20 and 17). For it to be that pricey I'd expect exceptional food. If I could give 3.5 I would

Inexplicably amazing food - squid appetizer, ham croquettes & ox tail to finish off the meal - plus a great selection of tasty delicious wine.

Good food, excellent service. Food on the more expensive side, wine on the cheap side. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

We came to Casa Lucas on our last night in Madrid. We were doing a food crawl and my husband and I decided to go to a different restaurant for each part of the meal. We came to Casa Lucas for the main dish and choose the risotto. Just thinking about it now makes my mouth water. A lovely hidden... More

My friend and I chose Casa Lucas for our first meal in Madrid based on TA reviews, and made sure to get there early. We had a delicious dinner for a reasonable price. At this time I don't remember what we ate, but everything was excellent.

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.
