Both El Mirasol locations feature a singular focus on wholesome, fresh food with house specialties like Chicharron en Salsa, our rich aromatic Mole Sauce, thickening the sauces using flax seed, and hand made Corn Tortillas made fresh daily. Expand your Mexican food horizons with regional selections like Shrimp, Scallops or Chicken in Pipian Sauce, Spinach Enchiladas in Chile Verde or enjoy traditional favorites like Carnitas, Carne Asada and Chiles Rellenos are gluten free. The Castaneda family welcomes a chance to serve you at either of their award winning El Mirasol locations, or we can provide catering for your event from small to large at your home, your event venue or host it at our very own Los Arboles Hotel!

“One of the healthiest Mexican Resturant's”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Best Margarita anywhere. Ask for what is on special. They have amazing scollops, and will add spinach or healthy alternatives. They will pretty much make anything you ask. They are not cheap, but good. And the place is happening on Friday night or Saturday.

“Mmmmm spinach enchiladas!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

They have the best spinach enchiladaswith green chili! Ours sons regularly get the beef tacos and my husband really enjoys the tostada. Nice casual atmosphere, good selection of Mexican beer and good service.

“Best Mexican restaurant in Palm Springs”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Really decent food, excellent prices, decent atmosphere and overall makes for a good night out. We were a family of 3 with a 15-month old, and they were very polite and nice. The service is good. Parking can be a bit tricky and the place was very very busy. We tried a couple of other Mexican places, but this was by far the best. It was not the tastiest Mexican ever, but it did the trick.

“SO-so Mexican”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

A little shabby interior, but not expensive food. It's at best just OK. The crowd is usually a fun crowd, though!

“Good Food and Better Service”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

We enjoy this restaurant and have been here many times. Food has been consistantly good and we have always had excellent service. Prices seem a little high but overall a recommended Palm Springs restaurant.

Chicken burrito is my favorite. Very generous with the chicken.
