I had a fabulous green salad with beets, goat cheese and balsamic dressing. They served it with a wonderful gluten free bread (upon request) that was moist and flavorful. Service was great, as usual.

We made reservations through open table mentioning that my partner has a histamine intolerance, wich limits severely what he can eat. When we arrived about 15 minutes after the reservation they gave us a very warm welcome and had already read up and memorized all the food items he is intolerant of - that has never happened before and was really impressive. The service was impeccable, extremely friendly, very helpful and informative (and fun at that), she made sure we had a wonderful evening. I had a filet mignon which was perfect, my husband's special order was as ordered and they charged a ridiculously small amount for that dish. The atmosphere of the restaurant is also very nice, with a feel of Old Europe, being cozy while avoiding to be tacky. All staff was extremely friendly and nice.
To be highly recommended!

This is one of the best kept secrets in the valley. I found this restaurant while looking for somewhere special for our friend's birthday. This is one of the most Romantic Restaurants I have ever seen. The food was unbelievable (try the Venison). The service was unsurpassed and to top it off they had a Harpist in the corner that rounded off the atmosphere to put it over the top. We are already planning to return for the birthday dinner next year.

This hidden 'jewel' is a gem!! We were celebrating a quiet Sunday early evening dinner and we just loved the setting and décor...but particularly the very delicious dinner!! Europa Restaurant is a charming hideaway with great service. Just try it!!

I was told by a friend when going to Palm Springs that we should check out the Europa Restaurant. Without really knowing much about the place we made a reservation for the 6 of us.
When arriving we were pleasantly surprised by the elegant ambiance of the gardens and nicely lit pool area. It was a gorgeous evening and we probably should have asked to be outside as it looked like a lovely seating area. However, we very much enjoyed our large round table as it was perfect for conversing between each of us. Inside there are very interesting art pieces and chandeliers to look at. It appears to be an old house that has been changed into in a very nice restaurant. There was a gentleman playing the harp while we ate and he played classic music (even Rock songs) but with a harp, so it was a really great twist.
The server was phenomenal! She seemed to be very personable and knowledgeable of the menu. The only thing is that you definitely have to make sure you have the time, as each step is a bit of a wait (even just getting the menu etc). I think it is so you can enjoy the time that you are there and have a nice conversation, but at one point it felt like a bit too much of a time delay.
Absolutely would recommend this place if you are looking for a fine dining experience and something a little more unique than your usual place.
Will return next time I am in the area and perhaps sit outside,
