If you are to make a reservation to dine in this restaurant you need to make sure you speak to a human voice. Their answering machine technology is not up to date, let alone the rudeness of customer care over the phone.

Oh Solomon I, you are so correct. Yes with the low level of technology on this island you NEED to speak to a human voice instead of on the "answering machine", (we don't have an actual machine, it's voicemail). It is also helpful if you leave a contact number and maybe call back to confirm? We are Sorry, it must... More

I looked on trip advisor and looked at the reviews of this cozy 5 table gem and saw that it was voted #1 ! I phoned and got a reservation for the next day as it has 5 tables! We arrived and it was lit up so beautifully it was like to went into a lush green treetop! We were... More

One of the reviews said "when they arrive in Tobago they make a bee line for the Salsa Kitchen". They took the words out of my mouth as we do the same. We have been returning for years and have come to think of Chef Paula and Ian as friends. The food is outstanding. I love every dish I have... More

We love tapas and after some exploration in the day found the restaurant quite easily at night! The female waitress was very welcoming and clearly explained how we should order. The food was as delicious as the reviews suggested and we were pleased we had visited. The only downside of this restaurant is that there are only a few tables... More

Dear Bucket2015, we are so happy that you came to our little restaurant and enjoyed our hospitality. Sadly, during a busy night, before your return, I fell on the step and burst my toe and shin open very badly, so we were forced, through these circumstances to close. We tried several times to get on to you on your contact... More

So to find the restaurant, you need to turn left at the traffic lights to go up to Plymouth road instead of going down into the town, then take a sharp left. The restaurant is well lit and easy to find at the beginning of the road. The owner was super welcoming as was the waitress. There were only 3... More

Every time I visit Tobago, I make a bee line for Salsa kitchen. I'm always assured of a very warm welcome from Chef Paula and her husband Iain. The food is always freshly cooked to a very high standard. I know of nowhere on the island that can close to the standard which is upheld by this very small but... More

Tough to find but worth it - you will need to book as only 5 tables! Essentially a Caribbean tapas restaurant on the balcony of someone's house! Imaginative and fabulous cookery off a limited but delicious menu. Very friendly service run by an ex pat and his wife in the kitchen - more line eating with friends in their house... More
