About El Mirasol

Since opening El Mirasol Cocina Mexicana in the Spring of 1985, Felipe and Lisbet Castañeda have seen their tiny original restaurant grow into two busy Palm Springs locations. El Mirasol South is still in the original location they opened in 1985. The restaurant is a landmark in Palm Springs and enjoys a bustling atmosphere, small bar and outside tables on East Palm Canyon Drive.

The newest El Mirasol at the Los Arboles Hotel features a lush garden patio setting and an expanded bar area. Both restaurants are known for the same warm and welcoming hospitality and a passion for traditional Mexican flavors and wholesome ingredients.

The Castañedas’ are natives of the small ranching town of Tepechitlan,  Zacatecas, an area with a proud culinary history that  borders Jalisco’s famous Tequila region. Mexican food traditions go back for generations in this family and that passion for food translates into great meals for customers of both their Palm Springs restaurants.  ¡Buen Provecho!
