We were a group of 8 for lunch, and the restaurant was full of happy diners. Everything we ordered was delicious. My husband and I ordered the broken eggs and chips, which were so good. For our main course, I ordered the solomillo while my husband had the oxtail. Both were delicious and cooked to perfection. Our friends ordered other... More

What fun! It is fairly difficult to get into this local favorite. So, try to make a reservation a ways out. Otherwise, take your chance and wait at the bar (that is part of the fun). We finally got a table around 10:45 but the ambiance and food were worth the wait. My husband had the hake and I had... More

The food was great, the service was impeccable, and Lucio came out and greeted a few tables. Met a great family that had just flown in from Mexico City, and ended up talking with them for awhile. I don't think I could recommend this place more highly!

Absolutely loved the food at this wonderful restaurant. Plenty of awesome Tapas and at a reasonable price too! Really great fare and would definitely come back. Fried egg and chips, prawns in garlic oil, and amazing bread. Oh, and I forgot to mention the jamon iberico! It all sounds a lot better in Spanish so I attach the bill for... More

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

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.
