Cafe des Beaux Arts

Cafe des Beaux Arts on El Paseo in Palm Desert California

Outstanding Bar with Happy Hour, Small Bites and Live Music on Wednesday Nights


The Premier Parisian Bistro & Patio on El Paseo for 25 Years. The premiere Parisian-style French restaurant located in Palm Desert, near Palm Springs, CA opened in 1993. Didier Bloch and his knowledgeable staff - many of whom have been with him for 18 years - have made Café des beaux-Arts a Palm Desert favorite.

The menu features an outstanding selection of fine French entrees such as Duckling a l’orange, roasted Rack of Lamb Provencal and savory crepes and salads. The climate-controlled outdoor patio, located on the corner of Larkspur and El Paseo in Palm Desert, has a Parisian ambiance and is the ideal spot to people-watch and enjoy the desert lifestyle. The elegant new bar with its balance of cozy booths and a U-shaped copperplate bar top is where you will find a delectable “small bites” menu and features live entertainment two nights a week.
