A lovely relaxing lunch

This is apparently the locals favourite. I cant vouch for that but its certainly a very popular spot. We stopped here for lunch. It just feels airy and cool. The water cascading down the wall, the open verandah.it all just sort of said stop and eat here! Service was swift and really friendly... read more

My husband and I went here for dinner on Sunday night. We didn't have a booking so were shown the bar while we waited for a table. Just as our drink arrived, the waitress came over to show us to our table! Meals were presented beautifully and were a good size. The service was fantastic - staff were friendly and... More

We have eaten here a few times over the past few years. Our meal this year was by far the best ever. It is always busy and you need to make a reservation at least a week in advance (especially if you are coming in the busy school holiday period) Totally worth it

Came here years ago and was impressed so decided to go back for w long lunch on this trip. The food did not disappoint, we had the fish of the day which was beautifully cooked. Lovely food in a lovely spot, great that it's pretty much an institution in its own right now. Only thing was that they were probably... More

Very helpful staff. Great food, and fantastic cocktails. This restaurant was recommended by locals but unfortunately we couldn't get a booking all week. One night we just dropped in on the off chance that we could get a table, and we were lucky that they'd had a cancellation. It looks like lots of famous people go there with autographed plates...

Went for lunch and was not disappointed! Fantastic meal of duck. Friend enjoyed her meal too. And amazing cocktail - Bird of Paradise. Flavours were awesome! Best meal in a long time! Unfortunately they were setting up for a wedding so couldn't linger.

I thought the food was great at Salsa. The portion sizes are very generous and the staff are attentive. The restaurant was packed which actually made it really noisy and hard to hear people on the table, which was the only downside. I would recommend a visit to Salsa if you are in Port but make sure you book in... More
