We arrived at 6 pm with no reservation attempting to get a reservation for 7. They were polite not to laugh. They said the only open table was right now. We took it and are glad we did. This places books fast so get your reservation in asap

I was not at all disappointed after reading reviews. The tasting plate which I was lucky enough to have twice, each time different was truly amazing. My husband's fish curry was fabulous especially the flavours. The service was excellent and it had a great atmosphere. Most enjoyable dining experience each time we went there.

Spent 8 days in Port Douglas and unfortunately did not go to Salsa until the last day otherwise would have been back for more. I recommend the Creole Jambalaia it has to be one of the best meals I have had. It will be the first place I will dine when I next return to port douglas

Last Friday we enjoyed a magnificent meal here. We chose to have a main and dessert and both courses were absolutely superb. My wife had the house made gnocchi of the day whilst I had the Atlantic salmon dish which I'd say was the best I've ever tasted. To finish off our special Anniversary night the dessert was also divine... More

The menu offered much more than the usual clichéd meals usually found in tourist towns. Very good quality, excellent presentation. Professional kitchen.

12 of us went there for our post mini wedding lunch up the road at Little Cove. Staff were awesome and attentive, thanks Nick! Food and location were great. Nice and open space. Thumbs up!

There is a lot of hype around this restaurant on trip advisor and also when you go there you need to book well in advance as we could not get the booking we would have wished and went a lot earlier than we would normally eat as we wanted to try it. We expected to feel rushed as we were... More

What has happened to the signature dish - the red claw pasta? I have had this as my favourite must have at least twice a holiday dish, when in PD for the last 5 years or so. Very disappointed with it this year. I know different chefs etc BUT not to this extreme. It really was very average. Even my... More

The big hairy arm reached across the table to take our wine glasses almost knocking my glasses off my nose, my pear cider glass was taken before I finished and while the food was mainly top shelf but the prices were through the roof. If money is no object and you are not worried about polite service, this is your... More

Fresh, modern, interesting food at a reasonable price (not cheap). We've been there both times we've been to Pt Douglas in the last 12 months and have been impressed by the food and the service and their wine list - they have some excellent South Australian wines on their list. Our discerning friends go there regularly and say it is... More
