During many years I dreamed about having dinner in Casa Lucio. I lived in Madrid some years and I have visited it many times but never had the opportunity of stopping by this very well known and acclaimed restaurant. So, this last visit I promised myself that I would find some time to have dinner there. I am not disappointed... More

Great welcome, very busy mainly with Spanish people celebrating the new year. Excellent wine, service and food. For those who like perfectly flavoured grilled meat this the the place. Owner came to our table and made us very welcome. Service was relaxed but attentive in a busy environment. The waiter helped us by suggesting two of our daughters split the... More

Looked forward to this restaurant, we did have a booking as we heard it was necessary. The food was good, but if you order a steak, make sure you order something to accompany it. I made the mistake of not doing and the waiter didn't offer any advice to the contrary. Ended up with a steak on a plate!!! Found... More

This is the place that Spaniards go to enjoy their favourite food from lightly fried eggs on crispy chips to bull's tale stew or partridge or roasted lamb or suckling pig. It a restaurant that reassures by the quality of the ambience and the fact that your fellow diners are Madrilenes. The food matches the place...

Casa Lucio is a famous place in Madrid. Its fame comes from fried eggs and fries. However, it's poor quality and frozen french fries were just disappointing. You cannot expect a customer to be happy with the idea of paying 12€ for frozen food, no matter how famous or emblematic it is. I actually do not recommend no-one to go... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Europe. The food is of high quality and you can feel that is their goal. It has an authentic old atmosphere, and you are greeted by Lucio before the end of your meal. Highly recommended.

I came here with a large group of my family and had a great time! The food was incredible. I ordered cochinillo (suckling pig) which came with potatoes and a side dish of fries. They were utterly delicious and the meat was very succulent with generous portions. I also ordered a side dish of vegetables but was disappointed with this... More

Reserve if possible so you get to sit in better areas of the resto. However, they will accommodate your one-day-before request if this is your first visit (they specifically asked) at Casa Lucio. Not sure what their threshold is for similar situs. They sat us under one of the archways, but we were there to try their food. We ordered... More

Eeven before entering the restaurant, the facade is so beautiful made of old wood! The welcome was spectacular and we had a great time. And on top of that, Mr Lucio came to greet us at our table. The food was very very good. We had the cigarillos (lobster) a la plancha and Churrasco with fries (barbecue) which is warmed... More

I had visited before with the family and had such a great meal that I returned a year later - this time alone. The osso bucco (in the photo) was absolutely delicious. The selection of wines good, and the service exceptionally friendly. It opens at 8pm and fills up quickly. I was first in line. TOP picks would include the... More

Staying in La Latina

Neighbourhood Profile
La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood, 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.
