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.

This is a great location in downtown Palm Springs, food was excellent and we could sit and people watch while we had lunch. Nice view of the park and the mountains.

I wonder whether servers know they can make or break the experience of dining out. Our group of 6 was seated immediately outside for lunch.

We had lunch outside facing N. Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs. Not a lot of tables so get there early. Also, a little sunny depending on which table you get. Quite a variety of Mexicn food at reasonable prices. The service can be a little slow, but worth the wait. Friendly servers.
