California timeshare owners love the convenience of having kitchens in their timeshare villas, but they also love to eat out!  We’ve put together a partial list of some of the favorite restaurants our California timeshare owners in the Rancho Mirage area have recommended to us.

You’ll find a wide range of delights – everything from sushi to bar-b-que, Italian and a steakhouse.

Roy Yamaguchi

Roy’s extends an invitation to California timeshare owners to enjoy “aloha in the desert” with excellent service and food – exactly what you would expect from Roy’s. If you are looking for an amazing and unique dining experience where you’ll think you are dining in an exotic Hawaiian location, this is the place!  Well known for their fresh fish dishes and offering a menu of Asian, Hawaiian and Fusion delicacies.

Shame on the Moon is declared a “true gem” by its large fan base that has grown steadily during its 30 years of operation!  As a recipient of many awards including Outstanding Restaurant of The Year, California timeshare diners find the food reasonably priced and perfectly prepared from appetizer to entrée to dessert.  In addition, drinks are well made and well priced.  Contemporary cuisine and reservations are recommended.

The Steakhouse at Aqua Caliente offers something for everyone including an Early Bird special menu for only $29 available Sunday thru Thursday from 5pm to 6pm and a Happy Hour menu Sunday thru Thursday from 4pm to 6pm in the Bar or on the Patio with half price appetizers and a discounted drink menu.  But it’s their extensive menu offerings of steaks, chops, lamb and prime seafood with enhancements and creative sides that will have your mouth watering.  Reservations recommended.

Babe’s Bar-b-Que and Brewhouse

Babe’s Bar-B-Que and Brewhouse offers California timeshare owners award winning micro brews and the best of the best bar-b-que baby back ribs, pulled pork and homemade, from scratch, cornbread!  Every Monday is Beer Appreciation Day with half price brews from 3pm to closing.  Guests are invited to take a tour of the Brewhouse year round and then taste some of the award winning brews with some delicious beef, chicken or pork bar-b-que.  This is the only place to get great bar-b-que in the area when enjoying your California timeshare vacation and they have a to-go menu!

Pinzimini located at the Westin Mission Hills Resort & Spa features Italian inspired cuisine and is a favorite with California timeshare owners.  The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner offering grilled Italian-style sandwiches, pastas, thin-crust pizzas and small plates perfect for sharing and  a sparkling bar with handcrafted cocktails, Bellini’s and refreshing Italian cream sodas.  Sunday Brunch and the bottomless mimosas are not to be missed!


Yard House

Yard House is an upscale-casual eatery known for great food, classic rock music and over 130-250 taps of imported, craft and specialty ales and lagers with over 17 locations nationwide and several more locations due to open in 2014.  California timeshare owners love Happy Hour that lasts from kickoff to the final play on Mondays! You’ll find all your favorites here – soups, salads, burgers, tacos, pizza and be sure to bring the kids.  All kids meals come with a 12-page activity book, Kustom-Kooler and whole fruit frozen strawberry bar.

The Slice Pizzeria Ristorante combines a New York style pizzeria with a full service, full menu restaurant that has flat screen tv’s and is located next to Rancho 16 movie theaters – making it the perfect spot to watch a game or get “a slice” before or after the movies.  California timeshare owners have the option to dine in, take out or get delivery.  This is the place for pizza!

Haru Sushi is the place to go when you have to have your sushi “fix” in Rancho Mirage!  They offer delicious and authentic Japanese dishes that will surely satisfy your cravings for Japanese food with lunch specials and “all you can eat” sushi menus for lunch and dinner.
