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!

Food's outstanding, and courteous service. We had the goulash and pork schnitzel. Both excellent. Also had a terrific German pilsner. Can't wait to go back.

I've wanted to try Alps Village since they opened. I finally had a chance and met a friend there for dinner. We started with the warm pretzel, which doesn't sound that exciting but it was delicious. I would go back just for that and a beer to be honest. My entree was the cabbage rolls which were very good, my grandma used to make them and they were a little different than hers which I loved. The spaetzle as a side was very good as well. My friend had the platter of assorted sausages and loved it. Our server was professional, yet fun and quick witted. All in all our dinners were very good. I will be back to try the other dishes as they looked and sounded so amazing. You will not find this kind of food anywhere in the desert, kudos for them taking the chance to serve some delicious european cuisine.

We are vacationing in Indian Wells and looking for a place to have dinner. We had never heard of this restaurant and decided to give it a try. It was well worth it. It was nice sitting outside, the service people were all very nice and the food was very good. We enjoyed the fondu appetizer as well as the sausage plate and the wiener schnitzel with the gravy. We are going to try to go back before we leave👍

The food is always fresh and delicious. In this virus era, they've got all their tables spaced well to provide confidence in your aafety. Service is good, but here in the season, make a reservation, otherwise you might miss out on a really good authentic meal.

Very good food and friendly service. Prices quite high for items and amount. It may be due to having to make up for reduced seating and turn over.

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.
