Large family dinner outside in December during a cold snap. We were toasty due to propane heaters. Excellent service and food was delicious.

Every time I'm in Palm Springs this is the one "must" have dinner spots. They easily accommodate large parties have very friendly staff and make great martinis. The patio is a great place to dine as well however they have a lovely indoor dining room as well!! Enjoy!

What a joint!!! We had reservations on the patio and a freak rainstorm was predicted by the local weathermen. The restaurant erected an outdoor tent, decorated inside and kept us all dry on NYE. Thank you Tropicale!!! It was a prix fixe menu and we both ordered the bone-in ribeye, which took up the entire plate and thoroughly enjoyed conquering... More

Be sure to check out all aspects of this converted 1960 body shop to restaurant....there is a romantic outdoor patio with lush vegetation, festive lighting and a water feature. Or have a seat on a high banquette in the dining room fashioned after an old Havana supper club. The best dish by far is the boneless southern fried chicken over... More

Enjoyed sitting outside in late afternoon into early evening. Space heaters and beautiful strung lights made the experience even more pleasurable. Excellent service from staff, well made drinks and live music from indoors added to the experience. Great place to stop before heading out to the airport to depart Palm Springs - mere 10 minute drive away from airport.

I've gone to Tropicale five times now. Twice for brunch and three times for happy hour. The brunch menu is very good and quite diverse. The crowd pleaser for brunch is the Southern Fried Chicken on a Bacon Jalapeño Waffle or the Skillet Frittata with Italian Sausage and Spinach. I had the Lobster Niçoise salad that came with Green Goddess... More
