Oh, my, what a gem!!! Down Indian Trail off of Hwy 111, behind a motel, it is a lush beauty, inside and out. It is part of a motel itself but the swimming pool seems like a garden attraction. The service and food are excellent--there is real pride on the plate. Thursdays, they compete with the downtown outdoors event that... More

We went to Europa to celebrate my birthday, after having heard about it from friends. We were in Palm Springs at our condo for the weekend. Europa is located in the lovely picturesque boutique hotel Villa Royale of South Palm Springs. We were not disappointed! We experienced wonderful service, and amazing drinks and gourmet dinners in an atmosphere not unlike... More

Europa is located in the Villa Royale in Palm Springs. Not an easy location to find for the initial visit. This is the third year in a row that we have dined here using a Travelzoo voucher. The food and service (Erin) as always is consistently above average. Unfortunately the night we were there they did not receive their fish... More

We went to dinner at Europa Restaurant in Palm Springs Saturday 10/1. We used a Travelzoo certificate that my wife had purchased as a gift for me. As long time Coachella Valley residents it was one of the worst dining experience we have ever here. We had dined at the restaurant in May and it was total opposite experience, prompt,... More

Our dinner at Europa was once again delicious and the service excellent! This time two of us had the steak and one the scallops. Not a crumb was left on our plate. I wanted to substitute the potato side (I hate rosemary!) and the chef gave me fingerling potatoes instead, which were not on the menu. Expensive, but worth the... More

Are you escaping to Palm Springs for a romantic getaway, celebrating a special event, or hoping to kindle a spark? Then this is the place for you. It's a foodie paradise, with food prepared by a chef who clearly loves his work and served by waitstaff who understand what fine dining is about. The setting is romantic and traditionally European...

Wonderful food in a pretty, refined setting. The apps were flavorful and our entrees were perfectly seasoned and cooked - especially the scallops. The only downside was the wait, which they warn you about ahead of time as all food is prepared just for you. If you have kids with you it is tough but worth the wait.

Really nice restaurant week visit. There is a rich history with this place that the staff quickly and proudly shares with guests making a fun sidebar. The food was excellent and the atmosphere is old and eclectic in a good way. The wine list is also a+. Staff are out of this world accommodating, professional and courteous.

The chef is great and they will do everything to accommodate you if you have any dietary restrictions. It's best to let them know when you make the reservation if u have any dietary restrictions so they can make that special dinner just for you 😊 I can never get enough of this place and have to make a visit...
