Thoroughly enjoyed it.

We fancied a Mexican so we went along to Salsa Bistro. The restaurant is down a side street. It took me a while to order, as the menu is very flexible, allowing for side orders of such things as jalpenos. After ordering downstairs, they took us upstairs. They fill the upstairs room before the... read more

This place is a little gem with friendly staff and excellent food. We had a great evening here with friendly staff and a great atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Our hotel suggested this would be a casual child-friendly place. We sat downstairs with a 3-year-old and baby, which was fine. The problems came after sitting down: 1. The Service: We watched two sets of people sit down and then leave downstairs, probably because no one bothered to take a drink order. Our nachos came promptly, but the rest of... More

Only one table occupied on a quiet Sunday. Waitress refused 4 adults with 1 buggy entry as there was no room! Very child unfriendly. The place was deserted!!!!! One table of 4 occupied for a Sunday lunchtime. I think this in itself is quite indicative of the quality of service and food. We live locally and will be sure to... More

Keswick is full of terrible places to eat (which are usually empty) and good ones (which are almost always full.) Found the Salsa down a back alley. It looked empty- but the resteraunt is actually upstairs. Nice relaxed atmosphere, not packed, good, if occasionally eccentric service. Good to see a Mexican resteraunt in Keswick, even if no Mexicans to be... More

Staff are slow, food is pricy for what you actually get. When the bill came it was wrong and the chap serving us couldn't work out what it should be so we had to tell him. Not very good at all and would never go back. Keswick has some great places to eat, avoid this place and go to Dog... More

Ate there with a few friends, food was good, big portions and tasty, the upstairs could do with some money spent on it to make it feel more homely as it's a bit sparse, not sure I'd go back

We went Easter time 2009 - food OK but the bill for two adults one child £50 - well over priced which is a shame it could be so much more. What happened to good food at a good price Wine served not chilled for £14 no way

Nice little cafe environment may well have set the scene for some nice nibbles. I knew it wouldn't be up to scratch when the coke i oredered was flat and poured from a bottle, for £2 that is wrong in my opinion. No effort into making the food special or particularly authentic. The salsa and guacamole were actually quite well... More
