To start things off the waitress I had could not speak English, so communication wise it was a hassle and with regards to the meats and specials of the day it was not very clear. Anyways, I heard many amazing reviews about this restaurant’s fired...potatoes and egg dish, the huevos rotos so that was my starter. The dish came and all was good until I found a thick black hair in the plate. I obviously called the waitress a told her, she didn’t seem to understand what was happening and a Spaniard in the restaurant translated for us, there was a pelos in the dish and I showed it to her. She seemed like she didn’t see it but she turned the chip the hair was on and naturally the hair fell and this waitress continued insisting that there was no Spaniard in the restaurant told the waitress he saw the hair but she ignored him. We asked to speak to the manger of the restaurant, he/she never came so I just packed up and left. Safe to say I will never enter this place again.More

A good experience in every way, the famous eggs were delicious and the staff was friendly. The decor needs a breath of fresh air.

This place had very good food, wine, and very pleasant waiters! We liked it so much, we went twice in 5 days and have a reservation here for my husband’s birthday. This is a shot of our waiter cutting the jamon. Enjoy!

We were some friends, we were the first to get in the restaurant. The waiters were quite impolite and unfriendly. We ate in the bar, we didn’t want to sit down, but we asked for several dishes. The famous eggs were quite “normal” nothing especial....There are a lot of places better. But the two waiters should do a course in kindness and hospitality. Even the man in the cashier looked as if he was making fun of us. Really umpleasant experience. And please, don’t ask for “croquettes” not recommended. And please for the boss, teach your employees take care of the customers!!More

I went with a colleague of mine to Casa Lucio to have dinner. The place was recommended to us by our Spanish colleagues and they said it is the best place to eat fried eggs and eggs dishes. The place was a total disappointment. Food...is average and expensive for what you get. Service was awful, to say the least. When the restaurant opened at 20.30, it looked like they were making us a favour, zero attention to the customer. The waiter who served us was rude and gave us zero explanation of the dishes. He was arrogant and he threw the dishes to the table. He refused to serve what I asked for dessert (it was a dish in the menu, so nothing out of ordinary...he simply said “no no no” and that’s it). I was speechless. The place is definitely overrated and non customer oriented. I surely will not go back again.More

Very disappointing evening. This restaurant opens at 8.30 pm, you feel as if you are being granted a Royal audience . Pleasant staff. My husband got a meal he didn’t order. My sole was rubbery ( I didn’t know you could do this!) . Tasteless...lukewarm food. Nice wine! Disappointing all round.More

This restaurant has a traditional setting and menu (pics attached). We started with the roasted peppers that good and sat on a bed of fries. We also shared the tripes that had a good sauce. I then had the hake cheeks grilled that came with...grilled potatoes. Overall, we had a good meal and the staff was helpful.More

Hidden in a vivid barrio, this restaurant brought me many memories of the food you would have during these long family lunches or dinners on the weekends. The staff is incredible, in full of control of their operations and the quality of food. The dishes...are recommended to share in the middle. The Jamon is of outstanding quality as well as every meat place we chose to taste. I loved that at the end we were offered complimentary traditional desserts which is the minimum that a restaurant must do and set as an example. It is rare to find such restaurants where you can feel at home and nostalgic of your family's traditional dinners( referring mostly to Mediterranean culture )More

The portion is very generous indeed. You have a big bread awaiting you on the table and the dishes are served with fries (thin ones - so delicious we ordered another portion!) Enjoy it! You will not regret for sure!
