This place was recommended by Javier Bardem. Ok not really, but could've passed as his twin, our bartender/waiter from Flauta in Barcelona.
It was beyond packed when we walked in. We had to hustle big time to get a spot. We ordered the traditional eggs and potatoes. Their house wine was a perfect compliment to our perfectly cooked crispy julienne potatoes with sunny side up eggs on top.
Javier was right.
*I came here three years ago, but Yelp Spain wasn't up and running at the time.
Came here upon recommendation from our hotel and it was ok.
I thought the food was too salty! We ordered the grilled squid which was nicely prepared but had too much salt! We also had the croquettes which were nice, it had cheese and ham. Mmm, but nothing out of the ordinary.
The place itself is small and narrow, so it can get cramped.
Service was ok.
I know there were other dishes on the menu, maybe we just didn't get the right ones.
The tevern's name translates into "Lucio's eggs", and it offers eggs in all variations. My favorite: French fries with scrambled egg-white. Sounds weird, tastes delicious!
Lucio's is situated in Madrid's lively La Latina barrio.
Came here for the famous huevos estrellados. Alright, it's fried eggs over fries, that's all it is. Great for a hangover. Otherwise, I'd try a different dish.
