This is a very popular restaurant in the La Quinta area. Large and spacious, with a huge outdoor dinging area, the restaurant continues to deliver high quality meals, excellent beverages and very friendly service. Plenty of off street parking available.

Great place. Broad menu. Lots of different seating options. Good salads and appetizers. We had a private dining room dinner once there which was spectacular. Great wines. Love the bacon wrapped dates. Rich but yummy. Excellent service always.
