TOP 9 Mexican restaurants in Prague
Where to enjoy real Mexico in Prague?
Getting a proper Mexican food in Prague, no tex-mex, wasn't exactly easy just a few years ago. However, with the development of Prague's gastronomic scene and the wave of Mexican immigrants, Mexican cuisine has begun to look better and nowadays you can enjoy tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas and other typical dishes or drinks at a number of places. A common feature of all Mexican restaurants in Prague is the bet on authenticity, fresh ingredients and homemade recipes.
We've put together our picks for the best Mexican restaurants in Prague that are not only popular with locals, but are also popular with visitors to Prague.
La Casa Blů
Address: Kozí 15, Prague 1
GPS: 50.09114, 14.42181
A cult place for many native Praguers, as the popular Czech film “Samotáři” was filmed there. This Mexican restaurant is located in the city centre, however it's a great place to eat at standard prices. It was founded in 1996 by a Chilean from Prague and the place still has a special Latin American charm. The interior is older, but cozy. We especially recommend the nachos.
Address: Masná 620/2, Prague 1 - Old Town
GPS: 50.08926, 14.42319
Agave Restaurant can be found just off Old Town Square, next to one of the busiest bar streets in Prague. Therefore the evening doesn't have to end with a Mexican-style dinner. At Agave you will find the best Mexican food in Prague with famous nachos and a large selection of mixed drinks, tequila and rum. It's a modern place with friendly service and authentic food, perfect for a date or a party. It tends to get busy in the evening, a quieter time to visit the restaurant is around 5:30 pm.
address: Újezd 38, Prague 1 - Malá Strana
GPS: 50.08291, 14.4046
Cantina is a cozy Mexican restaurant in Prague operating since 1997, making it one of the oldest places with Mexican food in Prague. Don't look for a modern concept here - sombreros and ponchos hang on the colourful walls, and you can sample classic dishes like burritos (stuffed wheat tortillas), fajitas (sliced marinated steaks) and more. The huge selection of Mexican tequila is worth mentioning. The restaurant can be found below Petřín in Prague's Újezd district, so you can end a romantic walk with a visit of this nice place.

Whichever of the four branches of Las Adelitas you choose, you will have the feeling that you are not eating Mexican food in Prague, but maybe right in Mexico City. The walls are a bit dingy, the tables are wobbly, but that's what makes the place all the more charming. The dishes have authentic Spanish names and taste authentic. Their frozen margaritas are also famous. The service can be a little slow, but nothing that should deter you from visiting. We recommend making a reservation a few days in advance, it's often crowded.
Address: Pod Špitálem 363, Prague 5 - Zbraslav
GPS: 49.97855, 14.39498
One of the best Mexican restaurants in Prague, worth travelling to the outskirts of the city for. Barabizna can be found in the Zbraslav district of Prague, accessible by public transport from the Smichovsky railway station. The experience is the interior itself, which is thematically decorated in the spirit of Mexico and with photos of the painter Frida Kahlo. Dishes are served on traditional plates and the menu is very wide. Those who like large portions will especially enjoy it. And when it all comes together, it's the ultimate Mexican experience.

Prague 10: Žitomírská 10, GPS: 50.06856, 14.45585
A family-run bistro in the centre of Prague founded by three brothers. Do not expect any large restaurant for many guests, it's more of a smaller place, but all the more friendly and family atmosphere. If you want to taste real traditional Mexican cuisine in the heart of Prague, you've come to the right place. And don't forget to try one of the drinks as well.

When you walk into this place, it's already clear that everything here revolves around Mexico. The original paintings on the walls, the colours, the dusty tables, all contribute to the atmosphere.

A small, pleasant restaurant with two branches, owned by a native Mexican.

Guests recommend trying the Sopa de Tortilla soup, which is differently spicy every time but always with lots of vegetables, nachos and cilantro.
