Other reviews of Miro’s:
Miro is one of the top rated restaurants on Yelp and TripAdvisor in Palm Springs. We decided to give it a try, based upon their unique menu. Miro serves ethnic Mediterranean/Slavic food, so you definitely have to like that type of food if you’re going to dine here. Here’s our breakdown:
Located in a strip mall on the west side of Palm Canyon Drive just as you leave Palm Springs and head into Cathedral City, you’ll find it right next to Stein Mart. They have a pretty large space, along with a nice outside dining patio. We visited on a Saturday night during the off season and it was pretty slow.
Service here was very friendly and efficient. Everyone was attentive and the drinks and food came out with just enough time between courses.
Many of the dishes on the menu are based on the owner’s mothers recipes from Eastern Europe. One of their specialties is cabbage rolls. Baked in a light, brothy tomato sauce, the cabbage rolls are stuffed with rice and meat. They were very good. You get two when ordered as an appetizer and more if ordered as an entrée. They also have a non-traditional ethnic house salad, that’s much like a sour cole slaw. It was very unique and pretty good.
For entrees, we had the Beef Strogganof and Moussaka. The moussaka was good as was the Beef Stroganoff. Both were prepared in a very traditional manner and portion sizes were more than adequate.
For dessert we had the crepes (a house specialty) as well as apple streudel. Crepes are available in several varieties and we chose the traiditonal apricot and walnut version. The crepes were great. The streudel was good, but a bit dry for our tastes.
Overall, we liked Miro. Would it be our most favorite in the Palm Springs area? No. But if you’re looking for something different and don’t mind “heavier” food, Miro is certainly a good choice.
