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!

Madrid was my last stop after a 5 city European vacation. Went with my wife for dinner to this highly recommended restaurant. I do not know if the waiter was having a bad day or a toothache but he didn't even say hello, he just handed the menus. I had to call him back for the wine list. No bread... More

Nothing is forever... except maybe Casa Lucio. I have been visiting this restaurant since 1975 and I never grow tired of its delicacies. The attentive staff treats nobility( they do visit) luminaries and mere mortals equally. We all get the warm and personable manner that signifies Lucio's gastronomic philosophy. The regulars have the advantage. Tables preferred for decades by loyal... More

This is a tight dining space meant for conversation but if you don't mind that, the food is very good. We were part of a large party and I should note that one of our guests knew the owner personally, so our service could have been excelled. However, I don't think that's the case as I looked around at other... More

This Restaurant, Casa Botin and Mercado San Miguel are my favorites in Madrid. It is a very classic restaurant, the service is outstanding, food, what can I say, I feel like I'm in disney when I have the chance to dinner in places like these.

This place is a must. It captures the essence of Madrid cuisine. Owner always present and food is tops in the city. The locale is a bit touristy but it's a great spot.

My husband and 2 sons visited Casa Lucio and had a much better time than we expected. This restaurant has a long tradition in Madrid--we thought it might be a bit stuffy but it was not. We were surrounded by Spaniards--which was a good sign. Our waiter had a good sense of humor and Sr. Lucio briefly stopped by our... 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.
