My Favorite Mexican Restaurant in Cathedral City

Tucked in a strip mall on Hwy 111 near Cathedral Canyon Blvd, sits the La Tablita Restaurant. A non-descript facade disguises a fine dining experience in Cathedral City. This is my go-to place near home when I want some good Mexican food. They have daily Lunch Specials and at the moment, they... read more

This place is the best. You feel as if you are in Mexico with the decor and ambience to start. I have been here several times and the food never disappoints. I usually get the Tacos pollo asada or carne asada they are both delicious and fresh tasting. Of course you always start out with the chips and salsa, the... More

This was the second Mexican restaurant we visited on this trip. (See our review of La Perlita) La Tablita was portrayed as "nouvelle Mexican" .. we would not go that far .. but what we had was very very good. It's a lively but not too noisy restaurant and clear that members of local community frequent this restaurant. Family run,... More

Definitely get the Tortilla Soup - lovely presentation, taste and portion. I also had the spinach enchilada which was just OK. My partner had tacos which looked excellent. Prices are reasonable and the décor is fun with bold blue and yellow/gold. Service was very good and friendly.

Was there today for dinner with the family. The waitress missed up our order. Did not give us what we asked for, even when we asked twice. The waitress wanted to charge us for some tortilla that went with our dinner. We talked to the manager and we said if Hr was the Manager and he told is, oh yes.... More

A return visit to this restaurant that we found by chance on a previous visit to Palm Springs. A warm welcome we had the great lunch menu, excellent value and the food cannot be faulted

It wasn't to die for, but it was okay. Seems odd to have one half of the space as a Mexican Restaurant and the other half a Sushi Restaurant....

Pretty mediocre service and food. I had lunch with two friends, we each got a combo and were pretty underwhelmed with the food. The wait staff spent a lot of time chatting with each other.

I was looking forward to dinner after several recommendations. The salsa was very good and dinner was good. The service was probably the worst I have experienced. One adjoining table commented that service has dramatically gone down since an ownership change.

Since we are locals here this is one of our consistently good Mexican restaurants in the area! We have tried several different dishes and especially like their tortilla soup and Chili Rellenos.
