We just moved to Cathedral City and this restaurant was recommended by the locals. It is so good! The prices are right, the food was tasty (Abuelita's tamales!) and the drinks were a generous poor. The service was very friendly, prompt and just the right amount of attentiveness. We will definitely be back!

We were in Palm Springs yesterday and went to La Tablita while we were in town. They are better than ever. The food was magnificent. Thanks much, for maintaining this quality for more than a decade.

Big menu, lots to choose from, lunch and dinner and sometimes it's noisy with a singer and piano. Open for lunch and dinner and they have a liquor license

I enjoyed lunch with my Cousin, Aunt, and Uncle here on a Friday. The food is good, the traditional menu quite authentic Mexican, and all enjoyed their choices. Service was good when at the table bit scarce, and we really had to flag the waiter down for the check (the waitress who'd taken our orders was long vanished). That's the... More

We went there because we heard they also served Japanese food. And according to the manager they did but stopped. But we had an awesome experience. Great service, great food, and really cold Dos Equis. We'll go back!!

And the sauce was really yummy and the safood abundant. My partner... More

Well visiting friends in the area we were advised to go to La Tablita. We went a little after the lunch time rush and retreated to a very good meal. Definitely a Mexican atmosphere with all the trimmings in the restaurant. The food was very very good the staff extremely friendly and the price very reasonable. We would highly recommend... More
