We stayed a week in Madrid and ate at a few restaurants in the city. This one was one of the best with good dishes and good value.

The food was great, but the waitress wasn't really friendly. she did not gave us feeling she was happy to have us as a customer - maybe she prefers Spanish guests over tourists. The food on the menu is mostly sea-food

Hungry for a late lunch, we stumbled onto Casa Lucas. It was filled with locals, and happily buzzing. Our server kindly helped us with food allergy issues, and recommended some excellent wines. Pinchos were delicious. Moderately priced, excellent food and service. Thanks to the staff for a great experience!

Indeed this is a good place to stop and have a Glace of wine and some tapas. I recommend to go for pinchos and the portion is so big you have to share. Gourmet food at very reasonable price. Good service.

Arrived to an empty tapas bar at 8pm, ordered tapas from owner who was very friendly, had several plates and looked around and the place was full of a mix of tourists and locals on their way home from work. Memorable pork on onions with scrambled egg on top. Really enjoyed meal and very good value.

We stopped here on the off chance as it looked like one of the busiest restaurants in the area. The waiter said we could have a table in 5 minutes and we were extremely glad that we waited. The tomato and goats cheese salad was fresh and tasty and the wild mushroom risotto and foie gras were exceptional. House wine... More

Our expectations were high going in to Casa lucas given the number of reviews stating the food was 'mind blowing'. I think it is fair to say the place went above and beyond our expectations, and we would happily take a trip back to Madrid just to dine at casa lucas again. Selma was an incredible host, making sure we... More

Casa Lucas was recommended by a food tour and it did not disappoint. Arrived at 2:30 & it was packed. The signs in Eng and Spanish say ask at the bar for a table. There are about 6 tables. They told us it would be 5 minutes and gave us an Eng. menu to view. In 5 minutes we were... 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.
