Made a booking here for 4 people and my 2yo. When we arrived we were told to sit at the bar, after 25minutes of looking at a table that we were sure was ours, I asked when we would be seated. They weren't busy, but the waiter just pointed to the table we had been looking at. Finally a waitress... More

Yummy starters, the Thai chicken spring rolls and the pulled pork poppers were very good. We had the special for main, slow cooked sirloin with goats cheese mash, peppercorn sauce and beetroot relish, really good. Just had enough room to share the chocolate and Cointreau soufflé which is a must. It looked like most other diners thought the same judging... More

We enjoyed a night out here with my parents. The food was nice but our meals were all luke warm and fish over cooked. Service was good but no atmosphere I found it noisy near the fake fountain. I wouldn't say romantic. Harrisons or watergate are romantic.

Had an amazing meal at Salsa last week. Service and food were the best we experienced in Port Douglas. My partner is still raving about his meal! Would definitely recommend is a must when in Port Douglas.

After our first experience at Salsa 3 years ago I wasn't planning on going back during this visit to Port Douglas. We met up with the in-laws and they wanted to go to Salsa so we reluctantly said yes. I'm glad we did. We had a fabulous meal, the drinks were great and dessert was to die for. So glad... More

We were really impressed with our lunch and would have licked the plate if no one had been looking. Our only regret was that we could not get another booking to come back during our stay as it was full every night. Easily the best meal I had during this trip to Australia.

Every single mouthful of our dinner was scrumptious! Service was warm and friendly but very efficient. The setting is lovely too - we enjoyed being by the window. But it's the food - just fantastic! This place was recommended to us by our accommodation and we are so glad we went. Loved it!

What a lovely place with great service. We've been here a few times over the years and it doesn't dissapoint. Unfortunately they don't have the excellent Paris style tartare anymore, but the tuna one is great too. Lunch is our favourite time to go there.

Joined friends for lunch and having not eaten at Salsa before we're looking forward to it. The menu items really got your attention and there were 3 specials. I had oysters to start and followed with the tempura barramundi. Although the tempura was not 'light' as I expected, it was still very nice. Meal sizes are excellent so u wouldn't... More
