This is a lovely restaurant. Food is presented so beautifully and the restaurant staff are really pleasant. The cheese platter of local cheeses was just superb. We had a great table overlooking the street and while it was one of the most expensive meals we had in Australia it was worth it for a special night out.

Bit of an icon in Port Douglas. Stands up well to the description. Service was prompt and helpful but not overbearing. Enjoyed the evening and the atmosphere. Recommended as a nice night out.

Salsa for lunch or dinner is a must-do in Port Douglas. We are Cairns locals who dine here whenever we're in Port Douglas, and it is without fault. The food is always outstanding, the service exceptional, the kitchen and wait-staff always accommodating and friendly. Lunch the day after our 1st wedding anniversary certainly more than made up for our disappointing... More

Went there based on recommendations here on TripAdvisor. This was probably the first time I didn't totally agree with the reviews. It is beautiful, open air restaurant. We had just arrived in town and our apartment did not have a telephone so we did not have a reservation. We went fairly early in the evening and took a chance we... More

We wanted to try this restaurant because it was mention in few guides. Very good the starter and the entree but the creole jambalaya wasn't that good, lacking in flavour and they rice overcooked. The location very nice.

It’s no surprise that this airy, open restaurant is so popular with locals and tourists alike and so highly thought of. Friendly, relaxed but professional service, a menu that reflects its FNQ location and prices that are fair and competitive sum up this Port Douglas institution of 20 years. Our excellent waitress has worked at Salsa for 17 years. That... More
