Indian Wells, Rancho Mirage, La Quinta

Will be in the Palm Springs area for one week this summer. (Visiting from Germany) What is the best, most authentic Mexican restaurant. Would also like any other recommendations for food which should not be missed. Interested also in California/American, Thai, Vietnamese, Korean, Middle Eastern, or Indian.

  1. It is a beautiful area! In La Quinta I like the Wine Bar in Old Town. Great space w/ wine flights & surprisingly good food. Try the salads & the flatbreads. Also in La Quinta, I love Arnold Palmer's Restaurant. New American cuisine, beautiful space & Chef Ivan Flowers is amazing. Try the lobster bisque & the rack of lamb. In Palm Desert Castelli's is fab for authentic Italian.
    I hope you have fun!
