Great food, but a quick bite
Casa Lucas has received great reviews on numerous of Review sites (Yelp, 11870, Tripadvisor) and I totally see why; Good quality food, authentic and attentive staff, medium priced and good location. We ate the third and last "Hot tapas" dish on the menu consisting of pan-fried chicken breast on a bed of caramelised red onion shavings served on a piece of fresh white loaf. The whole tapa was topped with a yellow pure (do not know the ingredients), however, it reminded me of a root vegetable pure with sweet tones. The second course out was a tomato, basil and goat cheese salad generously sprinkled with a tasty and sharp-coloured olive oil (could have added a few sea salt flakes to send me "off the top"). Thirdly, we were served a black good portioned caneloni filled vegetables (carrots) and gambas placed in a thick (and delicious) sauce of cream, seafood stock and poppy seeds (WOW!). The only big, big minus was that the place is small and too popular for its own good.. Meaning the tables in which initially are meant for four are filled-up with five-six-seven making the path line to kitchen/bar for the waiting staff a walking nightmare (and the guests are bumped in the back a few times..). The restaurant does not have desserts. Do not know if it is because they simple do what they can best (the excellent food) or, again; want people to leave once they have eaten to increase the table turnover. Regardless of this; the waiting staff are friendly, experienced and quick. I would recommend the place for a (small) group of friends (not couple) who wants a dinner before hitting the city OR come between 19-21.00 and you will be enjoying the dinner for a longer period. Good luck!
