Have dined here a few times and never disapointed. Always good food, service and value. Dine inside or sidewalk seating. Very nice.

Went in on September 18th for dinner. We got there while tere was a band on break, as soon as we got our first drink, they started up again. They were a bunch of old guys playing classic rock and they were pretty good, but WAY too loud. I had a couple of beers which I later found out were $5.00 each for a Corona. I had a very mediocre burrito plate, the cheapest thing on the menu. It was $10.95 and was very bland and plain. I've had tastier food at Taco Bell. Overall it was too loud, too expensive and not very good. I suppose I should have expected it as its in the trendiest part of town. The service was great though. I wouldn't return and wouldn't bother again.

In a 2011 review, I wrote very positive things about Maracas. And we've always liked it there during our three previous visits. This time, the food and drinks were great as always. The service though is getting slower from year to year, and I would definitely not consider the place crowded when we visit, so that's not the cause. And this time, we elected to sit inside. They seated us in the back and shortly after, we noticed it was getting pretty warm! The front of the restaurant wasn't bad but the area we were in was sweltering. We'll make note of that and be sure not to let them seat us there again. And hopefully, the service will be quicker going forward. Otherwise, we'll start frequenting one of the other Mexican restaurants we've discovered in Palm Springs.

Everytime i am in palm springs i make sure to enjoy a margarita & a salmon taco salad at Maracas. Food quality is always honnest, service is friendly, location of the restaurant is perfect, price is fair. This place is so popular, make sure to make a resa on their outside patio. Buon provecho, amigos.
