Great restaurant for a ladies Lunch

Salsa is always good, lunch or dinner but I always like to have lunch there with a few of the girls. Great setting, good food, very friendly and helpful staff. Daily food specials a nice change to the menu.

Ok, I don't get it. To get an exceptional rating the restaurant and its food, plus the service should be one of the most memorable meals of your life. The place is a far cry from that level. We found it to be just average and quite expensive.

I ate here with my coeliac boyfriend and they catered for him beautifully, albeit after double checking a couple of things with the kitchen. The staff are friendly and the food is fresh and delicious. The portion sizes leave you feeling satisfied without a food baby. It is reasonably priced when you consider the quality of food and the fact... More

This is an excellent restaurant, but reading some of the reviews, I feel some people just don't "get it". This is the tropics, with a huge food bowl of options. People compare their dishes to the usual ones on big city restaurant menus in many cases, and once that is combined with what I call the "TV chef factor", everyone... More

Always start with the tasting plate, the food is varied, local and a surprising twist on a traditional theme. The service is efficient and staff friendly and helpful. We were disappointed that the specials of the day where too "heavy" for the hot tropical weather.

We were very disappointed with the value for money. The meals weren't thought through very well because we found they were very out of balance. With the big range of restaurants in Port Douglas we are definitely not going back.

Everyone who knew that we were going to PD insisted that we book a table at Salsa's as soon as we got there, as the food was awesome and it was very popular. We managed to get an early dinner booking midweek and looked forward to it, to see what all the fuss was about.... The ambience of Salsa's is... More
