Food was excellent and with good portions. I wasn't able to finish an appetizer. The margaritas aren't the most authentic, but their food was probably the best Mexican food in downtown Palm Springs. You really need to stop by this place early. I would give them an excellent review, but I felt I was kicked out after 45 minutes being... More

In-door-outdoor patio area where band is situated is the best place to be seated......little bit of a dance floor and a party atmosphere is in play. Seating along the street side has... More

We usually make it a point to stop here for Sunday brunch during our annual trip to Palm Springs with friends. And usually the service and energy is great; however this time it was HORRIBLE!

Food was great but the drinks are even better. Loved dining outside on the patio. Take a tip and make a reservation as then you don't have to wait so long for a table.

This is a great restaurant for atmosphere and life music. If you're looking for a good Mexican restaurant I would recommend el Marisol. The food here is very mediocre but atmosphere is great.

Located at 368 N. Palm Canyon Dr. in Palm Springs, The original location offers excellent fare for a reasonable price. The menu is varied and everything is good. There is a second location I will try next visit to Palm Springs "Las Casuelas Terraza" at 222 S Palm Canyon Dr.

Las Casuelas provides a fun atmosphere and good Mexican food. There was entertainment on the Tuesday night we were there. Service in both the bar and at our table was friendly and efficient. I would order the cerviche tostada again in a minute. My wife enjoyed shredded beef tacos.
