“Delicious Food”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

We searched for a "fine" Mexican dining experience and were extremely excited to find Guillermo's in Palm Desert. From the white table linens, the friendly service and excellent Mexican entrees, we highly recommend this restaurant to anyone needing a quiet and relaxing evening coupled with excellent food and atmosphere.

“Very good food!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Food was very good and authentic! Will eat here again. I do not like cilantro and the chef was able to accommodate making me a dish without it! Only downside ... no patio dining.

“A local Favorite”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

I have been to Guillermo's now quite a few times. it has become my favorite place to dine in the desert. The place is very clean and the food is prepared fresh daily. The waiters are great, most are Guillermo's family. Guillermo comes around to the tables to make sure you are happy. One of my favorite appetizers is The Mejillones. wich are New Zealand mussels served on ta half shell on a bed of rice that has a great sauce they call a Mexico City Sauce. For a main dish I have several favorites but the Filete Bandera is on the top of my list. It is a Dover sole stuffed with shrimp, octopus, and smoked tuna, then they top it with a tri-color green, white and red sauce. As for the drinks They have over 300 brands of Tequilas. The margarita's are great Try the Guillermo Special It is the best. After dinner check out the new bar and enjoy an after dinner drink. Mario is a great bartender They have a very nice patio to dine on as well

“Warm and Inviting staff, decent food”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

We were greated promptly and taken to a nice table. Staff was very attentive and helpful. The owner Guillermo paid us a couple of visits and was fun to speak to. We had the Queso appetiser and it was delish. The shrimp wrapped in bacon was really good, and I had the special of the day - grilled sea bass with Diablo sauce. Was really wonderful. We should have skipped dessert because the Tres Leches was store bought - not good. Overall good experience and would go back.
