Didn't expect to find a Mexican in Penrith and were pleasantly surprised at excellent service and food. Would definitely go again and recommend.

We went for an evening meal and found it ordinary. The food is certainly Mexican but the menu did seem somewhat formulaic and we definitely didn't find the place to be exciting.

This was a gem of a find. Decor is very New York loft style- all exposed brick and open plan but the service and atmosphere is great. Lovely touch was the free water served in a wine bottle which is brought to the table before you even need to ask. Good menu choice and the food was clearly freshly prepared... More

One of my favourite places to eat. Consistently good food at reasonable prices and friendly unobtrusive service. Recent refurb has given the place a new feel. Well done guys keep up the good work. See you again soon.

One of nicest place I've eaten in a long while. The menu is extensive and varied. 4 of us went for a meal last night, all the food was outstanding and the bill was low for what we had. I would recommend the cocktails and I loved the Ribs! We were very well looked after. Can't recommend enough. We will... More

We went with friends for a meal at Salsa last night and had a great time. We started with cocktails which were really nice then shared a combination platter (for two) between four of use - we don't have large appetites and this was a good move. The main meal was excellent, very tasty and good portion sizes supported by... More

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 time. There was an initial... 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.
