Californian
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.

    We are regulars!! What has happened? Salad (wedge) was half the size it was a few months ago. Drinks more expensive, by a lot, and not as full!! What’s going on?

    Awesome service and drinks (well worth it) been there a couple of times and im always impressed. Pizzas were very basic for price (not cooked toppings or even cut topping or cut pizza) and portions were small in my opinion for the price (salad/ burger) But taste was very yummy. I would 100% return because of the drinks and amazing service!
