Alps Village is a family owned and run restaurant nestled in the heart of Palm Desert. As a family we love entertaining and cooking for our friends and this is what prompted us to open a restaurant. We have created a warm atmosphere where our guests can indulge in delicious homemade food and signature cocktails.
Our menu offers a variety of specialties from Germany and Ex Yugoslavia to include dishes from Serbia,Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Some of our authentic foods are Scnitzels, Cevapcici, homemade sauerkraut, Cabbage Rolls, Goulash, salads, desserts and many more wonderful flavors.My mother Chef is at the restaurant daily preparing fresh dishes. During the Yugoslavian war in the 1990's she moved to Germany. There she worked in a number of restaurants learning all about the German flavors. She uses those cooking experiences from her own country and Germany to create a blend of European dishes.
Come by relax and enjoy some good home cooked food!

Fun atmosphere. Friendly staff. Service was a little on the slower side but overall it was great. We asked if they do anything for birthdays and were told yes but then no one ever came back with a birthday treat or song etc...

We took our grandson and his friend to dinner, they had been before and were excited to order the big pretzels. Our server (I will ask her name next time) was so great with the kids! She had waited on us before and she is the perfect combination of efficient, friendly and fun.

We were vacationing in Palm Desert and found this restaurant on Yelp! I hadn’t had German food in awhile and it’s Oktoberfest time! Alps had great reviews so we gave it a try. We ordered German beer of course! For dinner we ordered the sausage appetizer, the chopped specialty salad, and Mama Milka’s Goulash specialty over spaetzle. We loved all of it! Everything was cooked perfectly and the salad was light and fresh! I wish we had such a great place at home!

Waitress had friends at the table near us and spent much more time socializing then taking care of us. Not normally something I complain about but the time it took to get dinner was ridiculous.

I know opinions are all over the place on masks, but we were distraught by the loose approach to wearing masks here. Staff did wear them but they didn’t try to make clients walking in and around use them. And a server - with mask - talked to maskless clients at the not quite 6 feet away table next to us who were whining about masks saying he too didn’t like it but had to. Good food, but won’t return for the foreseeable future as it just didn’t feel very safe. Just sharing my opinion as requested.

We sat outside. There was supposed to be social distancing of six feet. The party behind is was right against us. You should have used every other table.

What a rare find! We drove by this place for two years before stopping in for a very nice meal. It's like a little piece of Austria in South Palm Springs. Delicious food, attentive service and good social distancing practices in place. We dined a fresco in their large patio area.

It was packed and I was so glad I made a reservation on Open Table. They saved a little table for two in the back, the only open table. We sat near two women whom we asked what they recommended. We had a great chat and it happened Alps Village was one of their favorite restaurants. We saw they had a HUGE pretzel, too. We ordered two types of chicken schniztel, weiner style and jüger style, and also a krausalat which came with a smaller pretzel. Everything was authentic (I lived in Vienna in my 20's) I highly recommend the krautsalat. It is a slaw with a light dressing of vinegar, a little sweetness and toasted caraway seeds, which knocked it out of the park and took me back to Austia. We also split an apple struddel. It was fabulous,and the excellent vanilla ice cream, hit the spot. Everything being spot on and so authentic, all the way down to the durndel and lederhosen on the wall and the staff able to speak German with me!

It was a second date night and we were there nearly two hours, no rush! We did not drink anything but water and we spent about $70, including tip. HIGHLY recommended.
