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!

This was a birthday celebration and it was just fine. However, the food was a little disappointing, especially the cucumber salad. They didn't want to make any substitutions and sometimes one needs to do so. The busboy was very good.

Food is great, but service while friendly was lacking. We made a reservation through Open Table advising it was our Anniversary. When we arrived, the person in the front made it seem they weren’t expecting us and offered us the worst table in the restaurant. We asked if we could wait for a better table and were soon seated outside. Our server rushed by us several times before taking our drink orders. When we finally ordered, the drink and appetizer came out within 15 minutes. However we waited over 50 minutes for our entries with no apology or explanation from our server. We then had to wait for some time for the bill.

Delicious food in a rather charming setting with super friendly and attentive service. Honestly, my only complaint is how expensive it was.

Loved it and my guests did as well.

TO OPEN TABLE NOT Alps Village: If you want me to review something DO NOT tell me how many words to do it in that is rude and will make me inclined NOT to reply to your surveys...

The Alps Village is a must place to have a great meal. The food is always fresh. My wife and I are on a mission to try every dish on the menu. We're about half way thru and have never been disappointed. Prices are fair and reasonable. Recommend reservations during the season or you may be waiting or miss out altogether.

Food was great. Service and server were awesome. I was a little concerned when I realized the restaurant was located what looked like a business park, but it turned out to be awesome. Sort of a hidden gem. I’d go back in a flash. Ken

We were recommended to go to the Alps Village by a neighbour we met at the pool in our rental unit. We are so glad we went! The service is outstanding, the food was so delicious, and the prices are so reasonable! There is something on the menu for everyone, but if you are looking to have great Schneitzel, then visit the Alps Village when you are in Palm Desert. We will definitely go there again next time we are in town!
