About the restaurant
A chic and sophisticated décor provides the setting for our distinctive "world cuisine", a provocative mix of zesty influences that creates a delightful dining experience in Palm Springs, California. Plush high-backed semicircular banquettes surround our dining room and offer comfortable and private seating. The cuisine has a light, exotic feel with an emphasis on Pacific Rim specialties, from Chilean Sea Bass baked in Banana Leaves or Kahlua-Barbecued Pork Chops to all sorts of tasty tapas, salads, wood-fired pizzas, and desserts. The Coral Seas Lounge, a hip mid-century style bar is lined with sexy black leather bar-stools and is reminiscent of the upbeat lounges of old Palm Springs. It wraps around the dining room and leads outside to a lush, tropical, 2000 square foot dining patio where a variety of specialty cocktails and old-school favorites are mixed - an ideal place where friends gather and martinis are sipped under the starlit desert sky.

The food here is better than I expected and everything is done rather well. The pork chop was well cooked and not dry. Good execution and the food came out surprisingly quickly. Would definitely come back again!

About the restaurant
Our business model is unusual for the restaurant industry. We believe that if we invest in the best possible ingredients and people, and focus our resources on presentation and environment, our customers will recognize the difference and will be excited to return and share their experience with others. We believe that a cocktail should be the creative expression of its author, and that a good meal must be an artistic blend of flavor, aroma and color. A true dining experience should involve an awakening of all of the senses and we hope to bring this delight to our guests...again, and again, and again.

Reservations can be made only by calling the restaurant at (760) 417-4471.

We had a wonderful time celebrating my mom’s birthday. The staff was very welcoming. The salads were excellent. I would not order the Earl’s Turkey burger again as the patty was not seasoned at all. Probably the worst burger I and my dad have ever had. My mom’s dish was very good though.

They always have great steaks, fish, and other dishes. My wife really enjoys the pork chop. I highly recommend the bacon wrapped dates as well. Also, it’s a VERY unique location environment, so if you have never been it is certainly worth one trip just to experience that.
