The table we got was perfect looking north to the setting sun. Service was excellent, starter dips very tasty, we shared a special entire... More

We had to book 3 days in advance to get a table. Staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. The food was well presented and we had plenty to choose from. The meals were a good size. Recommended.

Lovely setting, overlooking the distant waters. Don't be put off by the character outside of the restaurant, it adds to the charm. Food tasty, good service. We ate twice in one week. Do book for evening, totally booked out one week in advance.

Salsa came highly recommended to us as THE place to eat while in Port Douglas - and we would have to agree. It is a busy restaurant, with superb staff and a delicious menu. I personally found that having an entree size for main allowed me to enjoy the delectable dessert! If you arrive a little early, you can sit... More

Just finished lunch here and it was faultless. Perfect friendly, quick and knowledgable service. Position and atmosphere just right. Food....I had the duck and it was amazing and my partner loved the Barra. All very reasonably priced and very good drinks list. Especially love the old Queenslander weatherboard 'house' it's in. Very Queensland.

This restaurant is in the heart of Port Douglas set in a typical old Queenslander with white shutters, spacious and open to the street. The kitchen area is open to view and all the staff really happy. The dumplings, the kangaroo steaks underdone to perfection. And the home made cheese platter excellent.
