“Excellent Service and Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

We visited the Thursday evening open market fest and we got hungry. The wait time was a little long but we were buzzed within the time frame specified. Less than 20 minutes. Sat outside and it was getting chilly so we asked to have heater turned on and they were quite accommodating. Food was served very hot and did not take too long. I would recommend this location.

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013

Not bad food but nothing special. Service was good, but they seemed to focus more on the size of portion rather than quality. Nice outdoor area to people watch from. Next time would likely just stop here for Happy Hour.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013

the salads are good, the drinks are good but overall it is just an ok mexcian restaruant. they have two locations and the location in palm springs is better than the location in rancho Mirage. again, this is american mexican food. and it is a little pricy for what it is. the key here is its location it is smack daaab in the middle of palm springsmian street where all the acition is supposed to be so you can eat and watch all the traffic and people go by..

“Great food; not to be missed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

Maracas is centrally located in downtown Palm Springs with a very pleasant outside patio to watch the world go round whilst drinking a margarita. The menu is varied and the food so very tasty. Staff are very friendly and helpful and the cocktails excellent. Very good value for money and a must to visit in Palm Springs
