In the centre of downtown - we sat outside and were very comfortable. The service is excellent and the food very good with great variety and good size portions. Couldn't fault it.

Went for lunch while visiting family in Palm Springs. The decor is nice and it's clean inside. The chips were kind of stale but the salsa was good. The staff was very friendly but the service was slow. The place was empty so the waiter spent a lot of time at the bar talking to the bartender while we waited... More

This is our first visit to Palm Springs as husband and wife and one of our first experience to enjoy true authentic Mexican food. The service from Wilfred was outstanding, the food was fresh and truly good. No long wait. We would definitely recommend this for great food enjoyment.

We had a great experience here. We will definitely go back. There was a wait for a table so we sat at the bar and had great service! I tried the chicken barbecue quesadilla and it was amazing. The margaritas we're good and strong. Great bar specials and great happy hour specials.

Came here with my girlfriend after trying to decide on a place to eat. Glad we chose this place. The giant margaritas were delicious and strong. I had the mango seafood salad which was amazing and full of flavor. The guacamole paired well with our drinks. I hope this place stays just as good as we will be back for... More

It was the perfect place to stop to relax and enjoy lunch while visiting Palm Springs on our desert getaway. The Carne Asada Plate had good flavor and was reasonably priced. Great drinks.

We went to Maracas this week and found it to be a great example of Mexican cuisine. The beef fajitas were perfect as was the pork carnitas and chicken enchiladas. Chips and salsa were delicious as well. Not to mention delicious margaritas. Pleasant and engaging staff, except the host (clearly someone helping out the owner) who seemed out of place.

We wanted the eat good Mexican food and that is what we did! Full plates. A little to much for our daughters but very tasty! Good burritos and tacos. Not fast food restaurant quality but real Mexican food.

It was 109 degrees when I walked into Maracas. I needed a place to recuperate and celebrate my hike to San Jacinto peak on the nearby skyline trail. I was welcomed in despite looking worn out and a little dusty. You can sit inside with a/c or outside under the cool mist blowers. The service was exceptional. They keep a... More
