Good food and friendly service

We were a family of four. We had prime rib, chicken breast, scampi and fajitas. All tasted very good. The service was friendly and attentive on a quiet evening. The local is in a basement but we liked the athmosphere.

On a sunny day in Bergen we dared to visit Salsa - a restaurant situated in the basement in the center of the town. We had fajitas, chicken breast, beef and scampi. Everything was very tasty and had the right amount of spices. The waiter was attentive and serviceminded.

Not an unusual menu, but perfetly fine. Pricey, but I suspect that is because of the location. I like eating somewhere different every night, and this was fine, but not good enough to go back to out os sequence

This is one of the places i keep returning to. Their slow cooked meat is delicious, and the chocolate desert is fantastic.The atmosphere of the restaurant is nice, and I have not experienced better service anywhere else in Bergen. On one of our visits here, I got a piece of meat that was far from tender. I told the waiter,... More

We were walking the streets trying to find a place to eat and happened on this by accident. It is downstairs under another building. Had only 3 or 4 Mexican type entrees and rest was seafood, chicken, etc. The owner was present on he actually special made dishes for my wife and daughter. Highly recommend.

Salsa is a nice little restaurant in a basement space a few blocks north of the end of the pedestrian shopping mall. My wife thought the Nachos were just Ok. I thought the Cioppino was extraordinary and I would have it again if I went back. the owner waited on us. He native to Bergen and very helpful and friendly.

Perfect tender ribeye steak, it melts on your tongue, and the diablo one is a bit spicy ;) . Good service, and a nice atmosphere. And the price is ok

We were surprised to find this open on Sunday since their web site indicated they would be closed. Nevertheless we stopped here for a quick dinner. Service was friendly and low key. Ordered a couple of bowls of chips with salsa (tasted from a jar). All three of us ordered marinated shrimp which we agreed was excellent. Was interested to... More

Went here with two friends on a weekday for some lunch. I had been here before and had the beefburger (which was very tasty). Only planned on having a bite then hit the road, but the atmosphere and service was so good we stayed for hours and hours. And not to mention the amazing chicken burger! Food came quickly and...

This restaurant was fearing 25% off so we decided to give it a go after the restaurant manager welcomed us so warmly. The food here is inspired by Spanish, Jamaican, Mexican and it's really quite unique. I had the shrimp skewers and Jamaican salsa, and my friends had fish dishes. All were very very good and quite filling. I really... More
