Las Adelitas is an authentic Mexican restaurant in Prague, owned and run by a group of Mexican friends.

We found it almost by chance, their restaurant at Americka was about 100 yards from our apartment, in the residential area of Vinohrady.

We turned up without a reservation on a Tuesday night in November and were surprised and pleased to see the restaurant very busy, all with local people. We only got a table as someone else had booked a table and not turned up.

The staff spoke English and gave us English menus which included all the staples you would expect in a Mexican restaurant; enchiladas, burritos, tacos, etc.. They served local and Mexican beers, and had a respectable wine list with some excellent Chilean wines we've enjoyed in the UK, though these were pricey by local standards..

We enjoyed a delicious chicken soup, home made tortillas and guacamole for starters, enchiladas and tacos for our main courses. These were washed down with Pilsner Urquell and rounded off with coffees. The food was delicious, it was presented a bit differently from Mexican food in the UK and was a bit lighter.

We had been greeted and seated by one of the owners when we arrived and he came by to check we were enjoying our meal, then again for a bit of a chat when we'd finished eating. He told us the recipes and presentation are very authentically Mexican and that would by why I found it different from 'UK Mexican'. I haven't visited Mexico yet, so I shall look forward to wonderful food when I eventually go.

We visited a second time a week later and were greeted like old friends.

As well as the restaurant we visited, they have another one in the Old Town at Male Namesti.

The restaurant we visited did not appear to be wheelchair accessible due to steps down into it.
