Miro, his wife Mirela, and mother Tidja, as well as the rest of the family, have combined homestyle cooking in their corner restaurant, tucked in the beautiful Plaza del Sol in South Palm Springs.
The restaurant first opened in 1994, shortly after the Terzic family immigrated from Mostar, Yugoslavia when Slavic, Hungarian, Italian, Greek and German styles of cooking became a welcome addition to the Palm Springs culinary market. Consistency and food quality, as well as endless devoted hours, gave the family a chance to double their space in 1997.
Miro’s has grown into an establishment with recognizable elegance, great tasting food, and prompt and friendly service, which even earned the family the front page of the food section of LA Times Thanksgiving Issue in 1999, as well as number of rave reviews by the local food critics.
We’re very excited to share our new menu and wine list for the upcoming season. Take a moment to scroll through our selection of rare bottles from far away lands.

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!

ADVICE and REMINDERS
Suggested Hiking Trails:
Indian Canyons Centuries ago, ancestors of the Agua Caliente Cahuilla Indians settled in the Palm Springs area and developed extensive and complex communities in Palm, Murray, Andreas, Tahquitz and Chino Canyons. Many traces of these communities exist in the canyons today, including rock art, house pits and foundations, irrigation ditches, dams, reservoirs, trails, and food processing areas. www.indian-canyons.com
Mount San Jacinto stands 10,834 feet above sea level, and is the second highest mountain range in Southern California. Mt. San Jacinto State Park offers 54 miles of hiking trails located within a 13,000 acre pristine wilderness, one of the last in California. Trails can also accessed by the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway’s Mountain Station
