Highly recommend the French toast and iced Turkish coffee. The hostess was not that friendly, service was slow, and the other members of the group did not enjoy their meals. But the hotel is stunning and the restaurant decor was very nice. Would definitely go back just for the coffee!

My girlfriends and I found out about The Pink Cabana from a TikTok and immediately made reservations! We are so glad we booked the last time slot available and the restaurant was above and beyond all of our expectations! It is GORGEOUS! It's the cutest, trendiest spot. The drinks are fantastic! The menu was amazing- highly recommend the filet and fries. The staff was quick and accommodating and offered to take our pictures everywhere. It's a must-visit place if you're in the area!!!

It was a good try, aesthetics were on point but otherwise, subpar. The lighting is awfully dark, hosts were very rude, not a great first impression even with a reservation. I made three reservations in total for the weekend hoping to try dinner and brunch for several days stay at the sands hotel and was quickly disappointed the first night. I canceled our other reservations ASAP. This is not the vibe I was expecting for the price and hype.

Paige was our server, she gave us exceptional customer service. The food was delicious and the perfect amount. The Hawaiian Ahi Tuna Agua Chile was delicious👌🏽, that’s coming from a gal born and raised in Hawaii. My husband got the Green Chile Chicken tacos and we also got a side of the Herbs Skin-in Fries. For drinks I got the Cabana Colada and he got the Bloody Margarita. Everything about this restaurant was great. Must try.

The Pink Cabana is a cute spot to dine at! The service was good, food was good too just some of the main entrees wasn’t the best it was okay! The drinks were pretty tasty though! It’s a place still worth trying. The food wasn’t at the level I wanted it to be.

Everything was great except for waiter had zero sense of humor. He will not let us order our appetizers Until we put our meal order in. I asked him if he could replace green olives for Kalamata olives. He informed me they did not have those olives,, however it was listed in other dishes . We left him an extremely generous tip. Well over 20%. I try and give everyone the benefit of the doubt maybe they’re having a bad day.

Absolutely amazing experience, we were celebrating our engagement and the experience was amazing. The ambiance, food, and decor were on-point. Our waiter was very attentive and the each entree was hand-crafted. The fresh-oysters are a must have.

Highly recommend the Pink Cabana and look forward to visiting again.

Place is absolutely darling! Service was friendly and attentive. Went for brunch with some girlfriends. Portions were somewhat small, especially for the cost, I would say the food all needs to be seasoned way better. I had the Benedict with ham and it was cooked properly but teeny eggs and lacked major seasoning which I found odd because ham is usually salty.. Salad dressing also had a good flavor but was under seasoned as well. I think they food needs to be better to match the decor

Worth the hike from PS to experience the fabulous redo of this iconic hotel. Lovely brunch pool side in a 1950’s racket club cabana setting. We experienced more about the ambiance than food which was pricey and average. Cocktails inventive and creative. Staff attentive.

Great spot - our third time there for dinner. The food is always amazing, although would be nice to see the menu change a little more here and there (or a couple featured entree specials?) as it's a very small menu. Our table wasn't very clean when we were seated and we had to ask that it be re-set, which was quickly accommodated. And we've heard that the service can be hit-or-miss, but was great for us. All in all, good experience.

This place is adorable! I loved the decor and entire ambience of the place-- green checkered tiles, gold accents, palm frond wallpaper. The drinks were super tasty and the food was very good as well. Went there for a late lunch & my group got the mezze app, mushroom pasta, chicken club, and tuna dish. Made us tempted to also stay at the hotel bc the pool outside looked so amazing! Definitely recommend overall.

Ambiance was stunning! Palm Spring aesthetics for sure! The food was excellent! Our taste buds were in heaven! We dined here twice. Once for dinner and breakfast. For dinner, we had the wild mushroom pasta and filet mignon. For desert, we had the hazelnut chocolate desert and key lime pie. For breakfast we had Turkish coffee, eggs Benedict, and French toast. The service was great! Thank you Tommy and Paige for your attentiveness, kindness, efficiency, and hospitality!

Food was average, decor was nice but did not make up for slow service and food that was just “ok” with higher prices. Would not go back unless to maybe sit at the bar for a cocktail.

The Pink Cabana is an over-the-top adorable, Instagram-ready dining room. If only the food lived up to the setting... I ordered the Benedict with blue crab. The dish looked delightful on the plate, but the English muffin was barely toasted, and the crab was dry and chewy. The eggs were adequately poached, and the sauce was OK. The best thing about the dish was the lettuce on the side, which was flavorful and lightly coated with a nice vinaigrette. But the rest was very disappointing – I really should have sent it back.

The food was just ok. I had put on my reservation that we were celebrating an anniversary. We didn’t get anything special, which is fine. We wanted to order dessert but the dessert menu was pretty boring. The most exciting item on it was the key lime pie. Snooze.
It’s beautiful and the ambiance is really nice. Service and food could be better.

Space is beautiful and classic cocktails like a slightly dirty martini were made with perfection. The major letdown was the fact that by 7:30p, the most Moroccan dish, the lamb tagine, was already sold out! That is really the primary reason half of our party went there. I would advise you call ahead and ensure that they haven’t run out of the lamb if you have your heart set on it. The curry cream that supposedly accompanies the salmon was non-existent; however the harissa chicken was tasty. The real winners were in the starters: The beet salad was divine as well as the Cabana Mezze. If you are more than 2 people then order a second round of bread. Trust me!

The king salmon was amazing!!! Service was excellent. Nice decor and atmosphere. Looks like they are addressing some concerns from reviews on Yelp. Get the salmon! If you have not had king salmon before (this is nothing like other salmon) prepare to have your mind and tastebuds blown.
