While it's hard to find a bad restaurant in Palm Springs Maracas is one of my favorites. The outdoor seating is great if you aren't in direct sunlight. It is Mexican food so you will enjoy it if you like Mexican. The decor is lively and attractive. We visited at lunch and were seated right away. I had the beef... More

Right in the heart of downtown! A great location to dine and people watch. Enchiladas and fish tacos were great. Margaritas and micheladas too! The service was very attentive.

I ate three times at Maracas in February/March 2017. The service is excellent. The food is good. As with most downtown restaurants, eat by 6 or you might have to wait a short while. I eat very plain--tacos mostly. On my last night, I asked the server (after dinner) if they have true Mexico tacos. Mine were not. They do!... More

Maracas wasn't as clean as I like to see, but the food was excellent, as were the margaritas, and the service was prompt and friendly. Portions were huge--you could easily share.

I live local, so dining out in PS isn't really a special occasion for me. I looked up Taco Tuesday and up popped their website. Of course what didn't pop up was that their Rancho Mirage location is the only one that has Taco Tuesday, so I can't rate that! I was seated outside where the larger than life Sonny... More

We stopped here for a light lunch and ordered several appetizers. They were all pretty good and we enjoyed the people watching while we had a cold drink. I didn't try one bu the ladies had margaritas and claimed they were great.

Came home to Palm Springs after a 4 day weekend away and not wanting to cook. So we figured we'd take the easy way out and go out to dinner. We were in the mood for Mexican so we went to eat at Las Casuelas Terraza. When we got there we were told there was a 30 minute wait. Normally... More
