Great food, eggs with bacon and solomillo delicious. Dessert was like a bread pudding, nothing special. Very affordable but the waiter was rude, with a really bad attitude. Not sure if I will be back.

This is a typical Spanish restaurant in the heart of Madrid. The set menu we had chosen for a business dinner was reasonable, with good food but a bit expensive for what we got as main dishes. The wine was good and served generously though! The deserts were also very nice and very typical. The main drawback was the noisy... More

To start, we had no reservation (there were 4 of us) (highly suggest you make one) but they took us anyway. We ordered the entrecot, albondigas and chulete and while it was all very good, the entrecot won for flavor, taste and texture. Food aside, the service was outstanding. Why I love Spain: Reason # 1: the people. Our daughter... More

Beautiful setting but not for those on a budget. The food was delicious but there's not a lot of choice for vegetarians. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

I went to this restaurant for the reviews but the service was awful our waiter was like in a bad mood and no tolerance and took a lot of time to bring our food. Also, if you like healthy food this restaurant is not for you because the food is FULL of oil. However, if you decide to come (for... More

I was recommended this restaurant who is from Madrid and she knows I don't like tourist traps. All I have to say not many tourist at all. Everyone here was local for the most part, and I will say service started slow. Once we got our drinks then it was on a roll and things were served with style and... More

Wonderful dinner with our Madrid friends at Lucio's. The food was exquisite. The wine list extensive & very reasonably priced. And hanging out with Lucio at the table was a treat - seeing how international movie & music stars regularly stop in. Definitely recommend it!

Thank Ben A

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.
