We had a few of the fish specials - the presentation was beautiful, but warm, not hot and over salted and bland otherwise. The kids buffet was overcooked with soggy potatoes and overcooked pasta but a good value for money for the kids buffet if...More

It's just an odd place. The menu is a bit of a hodge podge of food styles and feels more suited for a Las Vegas than an up-and-coming foodie area like Palm Springs. Located on the patio area of the Omni Hotel - the restaurant...More
