About The Tropicale
A chic and sophisticated décor provides the setting for our distinctive "world cuisine", a provocative mix of zesty influences that creates a delightful dining experience in Palm Springs, California. Plush high-backed semicircular banquettes surround our dining room and offer comfortable and private seating. The cuisine has a light, exotic feel with an emphasis on Pacific Rim specialties, from Chilean Sea Bass baked in Banana Leaves or Kahlua-Barbecued Pork Chops to all sorts of tasty tapas, salads, wood-fired pizzas, and desserts. The Coral Seas Lounge, a hip mid-century style bar is lined with sexy black leather bar-stools and is reminiscent of the upbeat lounges of old Palm Springs. It wraps around the dining room and leads outside to a lush, tropical, 2000 square foot dining patio where a variety of specialty cocktails and old-school favorites are mixed - an ideal place where friends gather and martinis are sipped under the starlit desert sky.

The Tropicale Ratings and Reviews
Great night it was the Leo party. All the staff was dressed in safari outfits for the owners birthday.
The food once again was great. Tonight Chris our bartender got me the oriental chicken salad (its only on brunch menu thanks for making customers happy)
The works pizza is awesome and the chicken strips perfect.
We are weekly dinners this week 3 times 😁 always great service.
We would definitely go back and would recommend to everyone. The food was great and the service, from the host to the bartender to the waiter was very friendly. We sat outside and it was a beautiful setting. There was love music inside. Don't miss this excellent restaurant!
We visit Palm Springs once or twice a year. Tropicale is my husband's favorite restaurant. I also love it there. People watching, awesome cuisine, great cocktails. If the weather is good, like it was on our last visit, you can sit out in the patio with the misters and fountain on. There are overhead patio lights, and the atmosphere is wonderful. Cheaper than a trip to Positano!
A quick stop for brunch while shopping. Once again great food, had the oriental chicken salad great, the coffee cake served at brunch was great as well.
Always great service from Chris at the bar, great conversation with the Ranz the owner.
You will not go wrong with any meal at Tropical, we are weekly dinners, this week 3 times :)
Once again a great meal at Tropical. Tonight a glass of wine and chicken salad. We are weekly diners never a bad meal at Tropical.
Chris our bartender always takes care of us our food is done correctly the drinks are always spot on. We highly recommend Tropical have a drink at the bar with Chris and Mikey the best bartenders in town, then a great meal with Dan the best waiter you could ask for.
Call Tropical ask for Lynn she will set you up at the best table. Lynn is the best hostess manager in town.
Highly recommend Tropical!!!
New to Palm Springs and the neighborhood…Tropicale was recommended by so many and did not disappoint. We love it!.. have been back several times ..The weekly specials and ever changing menu are wonderful, Sushi Sundays and amazing desserts. Warm attentive service from the greeting at the front door through the entire experience…..
Celebrating several summer birthdays---this is our go to when we want to treat friends and family to an amazingly, wonderful, deliciously prepared food with copious flavors that party hard in you mouth! I cannot recommend this dining experience enough and YES, the chicken dinner is that good...a must have for sure! Easily one of the top five eateries in the entire Coachella Valley. Just go!
Awesome service this visit. We had reservations for 2 ended up with 6, we ended up sitting at the bar, Chris the bartender got us 6 seats with just us walking up. Lynn and Ranz were awesome they had a back up table already for us if we couldn't sit at the bar.
We had the Pad Thai from the special's menu, chicken wrap, fried chicken and the chicken salad all were very good. We are weekly diners and would highly recommend any meal.
Coming from a foodie city this place is vin ordinaire..... wouldn't recommend this place - the front desk messed up our open table reservation which we had to correct so we wouldn't be dinged by their no show policy.... just unnecessary baloney
Also, the locals seem to come for the early happy hour and stuff themselves as close to the front door or on the raised platform tables to preview the entrance scene - it's really quite weird
Wonderful atmosphere! Wonderful service! Delicious cocktails! Fantastic food! We had a charmed evening. Everything was perfect. My coworker is a well traveled foodie and said this was in her top 10 meals of all time. I will definitely be making another trip to Palm Springs just to bring people here.
