Having not been to El Mirasol for a long time I was pleased to again have a very good pork dish. Margueritas have improved from my past experience, making this a wonderful evening of outdoor dining, great dinner, and great drinks.

Really simple straightforward Mexican food. Very good with a friendly accommodating staff. Possibly the best meal we had in Palm Springs.

I'm not sure about the gluten free options as I don't look for them when dining. They're menu is quite extensive so I'm sure you would find something that fit your needs.
Are there children's dishes
