If you're looking for outstanding Mexican food, this isn't your restaurant. The location is nice though especially for outside seating. The Palm Springs Village Fest occurs on Thursday nights and Maracas is conveniently situated in the middle of it. Makes it convenient to grab a...More

I cannot recommend them. I should have known there might be problems when they were half empty on an early Saturday evening. The service was good but that was one of few things positive about our visit. They are the sister restaurant to one in...More

Food is fantastic - the happy hour specials are a great way to try the dishes. The classic marguerites is great and the strawberry/banana margarita was yummy!! Street tacos were tasty we like the fish one best. Question Fundido con Chirixo was delicious.

We first stopped by here for lunch. I had the special two Chicken Tostadas and my wife had a Quesadilla. Service was fast and friendly. The salsa was quite spicy and we really enjoyed it. So, a couple of nights later we ventured back for...More
