Miro's calls itself a Home Style European restaurant. It claims to serve food from Budapest, Rome, Vienna, Sarejevo or Mostar. On the lunch menu you will find gulasch, chicken paprikasch, stuffed cabbage and wiener schnitzel.
Miro's is very pleasant. They offer outdoor seating in the front of the restaurant that is perfect for Palm Springs. It has a nice mountain view and is surrounded by fresh blooming plants. The inside is cozy and comfortable with a nice bar and warm colors and crisp linen. It certainly brings a little of old Europe to the desert.
During lunch they offer a great special - all entrees are only $10.00 and include soup or salad and a basket of delicious homemade breads. Ten dollars for lunch like this in Palm Springs is unheard of!
The service was professional, friendly but not intrusive. My ice tea was kept filled and empty plates were whisked away. I ordered a gazpacho as my soup and it was one of the best I ever tasted. The homemade breads were really homemade. My chicken dish was delicious, and when I told the waiter he seemed sincerely flattered.
I will surely be back to Miro's. I took a peek at the dinner menu and liked what I saw: osso busco, trout, liver and chicken cordon bleu. A lot of these things are my favorites and you can seldom find them in California. The prices were all less than $20.00 except for the rack of lamb which was $23.00.
I can't say one bad thing about this experience. The food was excellent, the service was great and the view sitting on the patio made me happy to be in the desert. Plus the price was one of the best bargains in the area. Sometimes trying a new place is worth the exploration and gamble.
