A wonderful atmosphere with the pool. Also, they do unique things with Tequilla shots. The music with the Dr. Woo singing is wonderful and good dancing music. The food is excellent.

Delicious, beautifully prepared meals. Great hosts. Often there is terrific musical entertainment with the opportunity to dance. One of our favourite restaurants in town. Chef Carlos, bartender, Lalo and their staff are friendly and work very hard to make guests enjoy their experience.

Chef Carlos plate presentation is exceptional and food is cooked as ordered eg. med./rare. Ambience second to none in town!!! Bartender Lalo makes great drinks and prices are reasonable. Excellent live entertainment, good for dancing or just listening. Give it... More

For the fifth year in a row, our first restaurant visit in Melaque is always La Salamandra. The wait staff is attentive and excellent, the filet mignon is cooked to perfection, the music and dancing are fun, the atmosphere is lovely.

We have enjoyed La Salamandra's offerings 5 or 6 times over the last three years. They are upscale by Melaque standards but their food and entertainment deserve that rating. They also serve some huge drinks. The quality and portions, as served to us, have been excellent. My only negatives are that I would like to see more imagination in their... More

La Salamandra restaurant in Melaque is extraordinary! It's a 5 star experience with reasonable prices for the amazing food and service. I normally seek out less fancy restaurants when in Mexico, but after my first visit to La Salamandra, I was hooked. (And by fancy, I mean food for less than $5 or so). The food is beyond outstanding... I... More

I have eaten at this Restaurant many times. The best time to go is when they have live entertainment. Some of the music just helps with the ambiance. Causal fun dinning experience. The food is good and the enormous margaritas hit the spot. Great place to go if you and your friends just want to go out for a casual... More

Wow, I can't say enough about this restaurant. it has everything: great food, ambiance, good service, beautiful presentation. Carlos is one of the best waiters I've encountered. We eat there often when we spend a month in the winter in Melaque. The meal comes with a free shot glass of tequila. The drinks are heavenly and gorgeous. The shrimp is... More
