Spending my birthday evening at Casa Lucio was the highlight of my trip. The food there was a scale above the rest. They have two restaurants located on same street and was lucky to get a table since booking are always full. The tapas here were certainly a level above what the standard tapas places offer. Everything from the Croquettes,... More

We actually did not have a reservation and unable to get a table. They suggested their sister restaurant across the street. (forgot name) Decided to give it a try. We read that Casa Lucio has good ox tail, so we ordered it at the sister restaurant. But the sister restaurant did not have it that evening. The waiter checked with... More

Typical spanish food. Traditional restaurant with good food. Famous for their eggs: huevos estrellados. Simple straight forward "home made" taste of spanish food.

Everything we ate here was very good, with large portions, so be "wary" of this! Service was fine without us being able to speak English. The lamb and steak main courses were especially good.

No visit to Madrid is complete without a gustatory delight of a local Cocido. Casa Lucio is the perfect place: easy to locate, welcoming host, and quite reasonably priced. I had no reservation, but got a table in 10 minutes during an busy afternoon service. The food is Muy Rico! The callos is the best I've ever had. The sucking... More

An old-style Spanish restaurant reccomended by a Mexican friend/chef. Popular with the locals; not another tourist in sight for a Saturday mid-day meal. We had grilled mushrooms, melon with jamon iberico, langostinos, and grilled sole. Oustanding.

Great food I would recommend the curasco grill which is 55 euros for 2 people. It comes very very rare but you get a extremely hot plate that you can cook it to your liking. And it was amazing. You would pay at least £100 for this quality food in London.

A wonderful menu with an array to suit all tastes. Staff very attentive and willing to assist with all choices. The salads fresh and the meat so tender. A very busy restaurant clearly due to the great food and atmosphere. I highly recommend. Make sure you call for a reservation so you are able to get a table.

Our Madrileno friends chose their favorite restaurant to show us the real cuisine of the city. They have seen both the President and the King eating there on occasion. Try to get a table in the cellar if you can. Patata and revueltas is no ordinary chips and eggs, and the lush gazpacho is close to a best ever. We... 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.
