Europa is located in the Villa Royale in Palm Springs. Not an easy location to find for the initial visit. This is the third year in a row that we have dined here using a Travelzoo voucher. The food and service (Erin) as always is consistently above average. Unfortunately the night we were there they did not receive their fish... More

We went to dinner at Europa Restaurant in Palm Springs Saturday 10/1. We used a Travelzoo certificate that my wife had purchased as a gift for me. As long time Coachella Valley residents it was one of the worst dining experience we have ever here. We had dined at the restaurant in May and it was total opposite experience, prompt,... More

Our dinner at Europa was once again delicious and the service excellent! This time two of us had the steak and one the scallops. Not a crumb was left on our plate. I wanted to substitute the potato side (I hate rosemary!) and the chef gave me fingerling potatoes instead, which were not on the menu. Expensive, but worth the... More

Are you escaping to Palm Springs for a romantic getaway, celebrating a special event, or hoping to kindle a spark? Then this is the place for you. It's a foodie paradise, with food prepared by a chef who clearly loves his work and served by waitstaff who understand what fine dining is about. The setting is romantic and traditionally European...

Wonderful food in a pretty, refined setting. The apps were flavorful and our entrees were perfectly seasoned and cooked - especially the scallops. The only downside was the wait, which they warn you about ahead of time as all food is prepared just for you. If you have kids with you it is tough but worth the wait.

Really nice restaurant week visit. There is a rich history with this place that the staff quickly and proudly shares with guests making a fun sidebar. The food was excellent and the atmosphere is old and eclectic in a good way. The wine list is also a+. Staff are out of this world accommodating, professional and courteous.

The chef is great and they will do everything to accommodate you if you have any dietary restrictions. It's best to let them know when you make the reservation if u have any dietary restrictions so they can make that special dinner just for you 😊 I can never get enough of this place and have to make a visit...

Romantic, secluded, charming, historic, gourmet, attentive, and expensive. Wednesday evening and the place was almost deserted, there were only 4 tables occupied with a total of 9 customers in the time we were there for dinner. It is the type of place you go for a special occasion or to treat yourself to fine food, ambiance and being catered. There... More

We didn't want to wait in the long line for Cheeky's so walked up the street to Europa and got in after about a 10 minute wait. We sat out on the beautiful patio in the courtyard area. Great choices for brunch - eggs, omelettes, pancakes, french toast. Coffee is delicious as is fruit juice. Great, relaxing location and excellent... More
