Tough to find, but well worth the effort. Salsa and chips are great and my margarita was wonderful! The carnitas salad was amazing. Fresh guacamole and salad with really great fried pork.

On our way home from a 6 hour hike in Indian canyon, we stumbled upon this restaurant. It is tucked quietly into the beautiful courtyard of the Los Arboles hotel. Homemade tortillas are made fresh while you wait for your meal. Service is excellent, with a few Spanish lessons thrown in for the kids. Portions are generous and great value and the restaurant is spotless. We will definitely be back!

We enjoyed our meal tonight at El Mirasol North. The patio is gorgeous. It's a bit hidden, even though it's right on Indian Canyon. It's in the courtyard of the Los Arboles Inn. The courtyard was perfectly groomed and a hidden treasure. The margaritas were excellent. We ordered the cadillacs for $7.50. The place was spotless, the service was excellent and the food was just right (nachos and steak fajitas). My only recommendation is to dim the bright lights inside the dining room off the courtyard.

The food at this El Mirasol isn't as good as their sister place in South Palm Springs, but the setting is better, and the food is still real good!

It's set along side the Los Arboles Hotel...great outdoor seating...go at nite, it's a lot of fun, and get a margarita..

Plenty of parking in a small lot behind the joint..

El Mirasol is close to our hotel and we like to try Mexican cuisine. The staff are friendly even though the restaurant was busy and we came without a reservation. It was less than a 20 minute wait for an outdoor table which we strongly recommend is worth the wait. The portion is large enough to share. We had a roast beef green salad with avocado which is fresh and tasty. Our chicken quesadilla has the home made soft shell which is full of flavor. We had the house margaritas - order the regular size since it is large enough for only $5.99. I cannot even finish it as I am not a drinker. The evening was very pleasant under a moonlit and starry night with lots of people watching. We highly recommend this nice little restaurant which is not part of the main street.
