A friend recommended this place as somewhere with lots of choices for vegetarians. We visited on a Friday with an early evening booking for 7 - 4 adults and 3 children. It was almost empty, but we didn't mind - we had young children with us and that was our reason for eating at this... read more

I stumbled across this restaurant whilst looking for somewhere to eat whilst on a business trip. Service was attentive and food excellent. I'd certainly go back.

Not a lover of spice but fancied trying something new - Excellent vegetarian mild enchiladas with plenty of rice & salad. My partner had shredded chilli beef enchiladas and cleared his plate (always a good sign!) Excellent value for money & friendly staff.

I was part of a party of 14, well looked after and we had the £14.95 special menu with a variety of starters and then a choice of main PLUS a TEQUILA! Well, I love Mexican and so was awaiting the food with eager anticipation. But it was just ordinary tasting, I thought. My fajitas didn't taste like fajitas -... More

Friendly service.... really good food , and thoroughly recommend it! We hadn't actually been to Penrith before and popped in here based on tripadvisor reviews with My Wife but it certainly was worth it!

Our 3rd visit to this restaurant. On each occasion the restaurant has been busy but the service has not suffered. Good food, good selection of drinks.

We have eaten here a couple of times as my wife's parents live in Penrith. The place has a really nice buzz to it and both the food and service has been great on both visits. Everything you would expect for a Mexican is on the menu and the prices are very reasonable. The food is good quality, well presented... More

I had seabass and was lovely and portions sizes were good! I thought the price was decent compared to other places in the town and good quality food! It's... More

Came in to Salsa as our first choice was closed (Costa's, excellent, read my review)! The place was lacking in atmosphere. Was empty and you could here a pin drop. We asked what children options were available and they had none. Really poor. All the main meals were expensive compared to Mexican food I have had elsewhere also. When the... More
