I am always in search of delicious mole, particularly in the Southwest United States. El Mirasol offers very tasty mole poblano with chicken breast.

I thought that the margaritas were just average. To my taste, there were some artificial ingredients in the margaritas that I did not like...I really only want fresh ingredients.

The chips and salsa for the table were perfectly fine for the price point.

Frequently in a Tex-Mex restaurant, the beans and rice are an afterthought. Not at El Mirasol! They were both thoughtfully prepared, fresh and flavorful.

The ambiance was festive but not too loud. The restaurant was very full which I took as a good sign.

Winner!

Nothing special on the menu and noisy for dinner. The seating is open and the staff is attentive. Margarita was well prepared and mid-level pricing.

We came here on the recommendation of a local. I was looking for the best margarita in Palm Springs and he steered me here. The margaritas were very strong but the taste wasn't to my liking. The service was very good and very friendly. The food was also very good. My only disappointment was the margaritas.

Our hotel suggested El Mirasol for dinner and they did not disappoint. The Enchiladas Suisse's Verde were the very best I have ever eaten. Paired with a spectacular Sangria, this was the perfect expression of "great eats".

Le Mirasol was recommended by the guys at Hotel California. They weren't wrong. Excellent food, authentic and well prepared. I had the spinach enchiladas--excellent. My wife had enchiladas suizas--which she enjoyed. I got a mexican dark beer and my wife had the house margarita--both complimented the meal and the guac and salsa we had before the main meal. The guac is excellent--we got the half order which was plenty for the two of us. Excellent service to accompany a very good meal.
