Went down to the village fest in downtown Palm Springs and decided to try this restaurant on spec! So glad we did! Our server was helpful and organized. Helpful with choosing food items!

Two of us shared four of the tapas plates, including shrimp, octopus, bruschetta and hummus. Very tasty, and just the right amount. Others at the table had pasta dishes and pizza, which all enjoyed. Several good craft beers on tap, as well as wines and cocktails. We had a good time with good service at a corner table. It was... More

Alicante is located right downtown in Palm Springs. It's not too big of a place but has a big menu that includes lots of tapas, soups, salads, sandwiches, pizza, entrees and dessert. We had the funghi thin crust pizza and it was delicious and loaded with mushrooms. The prices are very reasonable and they have happy hour, too. Alicante also... More

Nice place, either inside or outside. Great bar. And possibly one of the best burgers I've ever had. And the soup was great too. And the drinks are fresh and delicious. Highly suggest stopping in here - you won't be disappointed.

I enjoyed the food very much. Shared 2 appetizers and a couple of drinks. Server was disappointing. She let it show- she wanted us to order to build our check. Very cute place. We will be back.

Portions are small, roasted beets meant one beet. Pizza was good and normal size. Manager was there but never greeted any of the tables. Staff could have been a bit more friendly, but the hostess Cynthia made up for it.. I live here and won't return, Palm Springs has a ton of places to choose from and try and this... More

We were looking for an out of the way place that served excellent martinis after a long day of film going during the Palm Springs film festival. We stayed nearby at the wonderful palm mountain resort which was close to the strip. But we did not want to sit in a loud and crowded bar. Much to our delight we... More

This was the bright spot of our holiday; we were in Alicante last weekend when the weather was cold and drizzly. Looked forward to this place every evening for a spot of good food and good cheer. Recommended by our hotel receptionist and we were so glad we heeded her. Lovely, fresh-cooked Spanish food. The range of rice dishes was... More

There are many restaurant choices in Palm Springs. I have stumbled onto this quaint little restaurant a few years back and have been coming since. Service is super friendly, relax and take the sidewalk seat to people watch; their squid salad is out of this world. You get the sun, Mediterranean sensation, happy servers, good food and hopefully great company..... More
