Fantastic Mexican Food @ Cantina, Prague, Czech Republic

We searched on the internet for the best places to eat in Prague and were astounded to find that a Mexican joint was at the top of the lot. Obviously, you don't have to only eat the local cuisine to enjoy a certain country as our previous visit to Lokal indicated. So we were all game for something new and had some pretty high expectations for this visit. Turns out it has some serious substance to back up its good reputation!

Great Mexican food at affordable prices

The obligatory Pilsner Urquell (48 Kč for 0.4l) when you are in Prague. You can also choose from a extensive list of tequilas, cocktails, wines, and non-alcoholic drinks. 

The exterior

The funky Mexican themed bar

Notice the gurney sacks on the ceiling. Nice touch!

A must have for a Mexican joint, the sombrero!

Food was excellent here and we were surprised by the portions especially the fresh prawns and the huge burrito which could have fed two. We loved the tangy flavours from the prawn dish and were mighty impressed with the meaty burrito. Even the small details such as the cheese quesadilla and the salsa that went with the burrito was good. There were many other things we wanted to try from the menu but our waistlines definitely wouldn't have agreed with it!

Burrito cantina (299 Kč) - big flour tortilla stuffed with beef steak, shrimps, rice, cheese, served with homemade salsa pico de gallo and sour cream

Plump, juicy shrimp and meaty, flavoursome beef in the burrito

Camarones con tomatillos (155 Kč) - grilled shrimps with sauce made from green tomatoes, onion and cilantro, served with cheese quesadilla 

This was on the special offers menu, and we have to say the prawns are really something special!

Cactus to feed your Mexican stereotypes ;)

The restaurant is located within walking distance of the St. Nicholas Cathedral or Charles Bridge

Verdict: We loved the experience here and were vowed by the authentic and delicious Mexican food. If you are looking for a break from Czech cuisine this place ticks all the right boxes.

Opening hours: 11.30 to 24.00 daily.

Location: Újezd 38, 118 00 Praha - Malá Strana
