Friends sent us to this Mexican Restaurant at the Los Arboles Hotel on Indian Canyon. It's a bit hard to find and there is no parking right in front, but once you park in the large lot in the back and walk into the courtyard of El Mirasol, you've left the busy city behind. While service was not prompt, our waitress was attentive and took our drink and food order at the same time. I ordered Carnitas and they arrived on the plate formed into little round medallions. They were excellent, crispy, tasty and not fatty. My wife had the shrimp enchilada with green sauce which was excellent. Note - get the homemade corn tortillas, regardless of what you order - they are the best!

Great to hear that you enjoyed the Carnitas ... and our unique presentation of them. Also really appreciate your kind words about the hand made corn tortillas we make fresh daily. Its a lot of work ... but we are glad to hear that you think its worth it!

¡Gracias!

Yummy eats at a good price, and friendly service. It gets crowded though, so come early. Can't beat it in Palm Springs.
