The restaurant has great Mexican food in a garden that looks like it is straight out of Japan. The menu is from all over the world, but we stuck with the Mexican food. The fiesta margarita was awesome. I have issues with tequila and there was no problem here. We then had nachos that were excellent and I had the... More

After visiting several Mexican restaurants in the Palm Springs area, seeking a desirable place to hold a rehearsal dinner for approximately 40 people, my husband and I literally stumbled upon this restaurant while driving by. The exterior was very well kept with plenty of parking, which was important after driving around downtown for half an hour looking for a parking... More

My wife and I ate at this restaurant and had a great experience! Our waitress Magdalen had knowledge of the menu and suggested things that we should try. I had the two item combo with a shredded beef taco and a chile rellano and my wife had a Carnegie Masada taco and a shrimp enchilada. Everything was excellent and so... More

I love sushi and have been disappointed with the selection in Palm Springs, my husband brought me to a Mexican restaurant and they have a sushi bar. I ordered the spicy yellow tail roll, and to my surprise it was very good, fresh yellow tail, professionally wrapped into a roll with just the right amount of spice, to heat up... More

Margarita's provides a relaxing alternative to the more crowded Mexican places along Palm Canyon and, if anything, the food is as good or better and the staff far friendlier (Vasili was our server and struck just the right balance of being attentive without being in our face). The dining area is airy and spacious with a high pyramid cathedral ceiling,... More

We had never been here before but friends recommended it. It is a very interesting restaurant, they have a full sushi bar, a Mexican menu, and American menu. They have a large bar and the décor is very nice. We opted for the Mexican menu the salsa was very good and the meals were good, large portions but typical American... More

We went to Margarita's today to celebate my birthday. Restaurant is very pretty inside but food was pedestrian at best-probably the least good of any Mexican restaurant I have visited in Coachella Valley. My daughter had a Cobb Salad which was just plain awful-we should have sent it back but did not. Greasy dressing drowned iceberg lettuce and there was... More

We have stayed in Palm Springs many times and always head towards the main drag. This time we lucked out, by going the other direction. What a FIND! We had the choice of Sushi or Mexican food. We both had Mexican food, my husband also had an oyster shooter and everything we saw looked extremely delicious. We were eyeing the... More
