Matchbox has a fun, lively atmosphere. Lovely outlook and nice vibe. Food and service was disappointing. Our waiter was on the face of it, very attentive and gave us all the patter. Three meals were good, except the chicken was served in skillets which made it really difficult to eat from. I ordered fish and chips which was greasy and cold. The waiter was very apologetic and replaced this. However, this took ages and everyone else in our party had finished their meal. Second meal was hot, but the chips were raw and inedible. They were apologetic and gave us a complimentary dessert, but didn't ask what we would like, and as I'm lactose intolerant, a huge cream filled dessert didn't really compensate for a terrible main course, once again highlighted the poor service. This restaurant could be really good with a bit more care and attention. Shame really.

Pepperoni pizza was awesome, crust was heavenly! Pepperoni is spicy and thick, not greasy! Apple pear salad was over the top!

Both the food and service were great but didn't take my breath away (which would have been five stars). Don't get me wrong: give the Matchbox a go; definitely worth a visit.

We find ourselves choosing this restaurant often. Weather permitting (not too warm) we love to sit on a balcony so we can people watch along the main strip of Palm Springs. The wait staff is always friendly and fast. The menu is pretty diverse so you can eat light or heavier. Get pretty busy in season so plan ahead.

My Wife and I had lunch at the Matchbox. We have eaten there before but this time it wasn't busy and the service attendant asked if we would like an outside balcony table. Great, fun view of the people on the street and the pigeons on the balcony roof. The misters were on so it wasn't uncomfortable hot. We each had a cob salad with chicken and glasses of wine. The salads were slightly smallish but good and of course the wines were good. We always enjoy the Matchbox service which is friendly, prompt and efficient. The food is consistent and the beverage list is complete. We'll return!
