AAA has given Europa their highest award (4 stars) for years. Based on tonight's experience, I don't understand that rating at all. First, the good news -- The setting is gorgeous: a rustic but elegant dining room adjacent to the hotel's patio with pool and mountain views, lovely decor, comfortable tables set with elegant Asian platters; very chic. In addition,... More

. I made reservation for Birthday for Christina on open table and at the end of dinner they asked if we wanted desert? Umm $!@+!!!!! They had no idea that it was requested! Awkward city. Nice surprise pre birthday dessert blown. She wasn't impressed by any of it. I now feel very deflated. Nice place otherwise. Sigh....

Service, food and atomphere all come together at this quaint European influenced restaurant. From start to finish the evening was perfect. First time ever we had a sever ask if we were enjoying the pace of the evening. An experience to remember.

The dinner selections are limited, but each is a very carefully crafted work of art. We talked with the chef and it is instantly obvious this is a man that loves his work and knows all the details. The setting is warm and cozy.

This hotel and restaurant used to be Sonya Hennings old house. The restaurant is full of charm. The small front dining has a welcoming log fire and there are several tables in the back part of the restaurant and a patio for those warm evenings. Service was very good - server was polite and knowledgeable. I ordered the Sable Fish... More

We ate on a true 'winter's night'--pouring rain; cold. The ambiance was a tad off by virtue of a table cloth laid down at the entrance to keep water off of the tiled floor, but that discretion was well worth the effort. Our experience was simply excellent. Wonderful table for two; solicitous service that was not off-putting; patient pace; and... More

From the moment my call was connected to reservations and through to the reservation confirmation, to the wonderful Christmas dinner served by A++ waiter, Seth, to our final grounds walk guided by gracious and knowledgable Rene, the Europa had it all! Every Europa employee we met, radiated genuine professionalism. I eagerly look forward to my next visit to the Europa... More

Needed last minute place for dinner and I noticed the great reviews. It was very close to my hotel, so I booked a table for two. Europa is a small restaurant in the Villa Royale Inn. The staff was very friendly and the service was on-point. We ate a several well-known Palm Springs spots and Europa was one of the... More

Oh, my, what a gem!!! Down Indian Trail off of Hwy 111, behind a motel, it is a lush beauty, inside and out. It is part of a motel itself but the swimming pool seems like a garden attraction. The service and food are excellent--there is real pride on the plate. Thursdays, they compete with the downtown outdoors event that... More
