We got there about 12.50 (which is early) last Sunday and yet there people already queuing outside waiting for the restaurant to open at 1 o clock. The food and service were both excellent and the atmosphere was buzzing.

Casa Lucio was recommended to me last night by a native of Madrid- of course I couldn't get a reservation. I came early 12:45 to Taberna Los Lucio & a line formed behind me. It was the best meal I've in Spain in 11 days. I had fresh artichokes with crisp onions!!& my entire was red peppers with bolognese. I... More

Managed to get a table on our second attempt. They don't take bookings, you have to wait in the small bar area until a table becomes available. Had to give up on our first try. It gets very packed, but well worth the wait. It's now my favourite Madrid restaurant. Everything that we ordered was just right, from the salad... More

This place was crowded which is normal on Friday night. We waited about an hour for a table but drank some delicious wine while we waited. Once seated, it was a tight fit since there was 6 of us and it's a small place. However, everything we ordered was DELICIOUS!! There was nothing to complain about! The waiters were friendly,...

The speciality of the house, as the name suggests, is Huevos (eggs) in a variety of forms. The dish we ordered effectively amounted to egg, chips and bacon on paper, but in fact was a beautiful marriage of those components. As one of the complaining type reviews says, the eggs are fairly runny in places, so be warned if this... More

This place gets very busy but there is an excellent selection of wine and food. The specialty are the egg dishes which are simple but delicious. Not had a bad plate of food here over the years but always feel a bit hemmed in.

Known to locals as "Taberna Lucio," this place is an institution, though not on the level of Casa Lucio, its older brother on the other side of the street. Came on the recommendation of an old friend, got seated in the special table in the back surrounded by racks of wine, and ate some of the best raciones we had... More

Good atmosphere, packed restaurant, though little space and a little shortage in ventilation. Tasty Croquet and green salad.

On entering this long thin taberna the first thing that catches the eye are immense bowls of eggs on the counter - for this is the house speciality - eggs in various guises all of which are pretty damn good if our visit was anything to go-by. However the menu is more extensive than eggs and there are other top... More

Our diner was very lively and with very Spanish tipical dishes and drinks. It was overcrowded which is always a good sign.

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.
