Cool and casual all-day dining.

Competing with a strip of other eateries at the Launceston Seaport, Salsa doesn't really offer any significant point of difference. That is not to say, however, that it isn't worth being your top choice. I visited for a late lunch and was happy to find a light, but quality meal at 3:30pm... read more

I am truly sorry you were under the impression that Salsa was still operating. Unfortunately we did close on December 21st 2014. We have removed all our signage from these leased premises. We have not mislead any visitors. I am not sure of the signage you have seen, perhaps it was that of the Seaport Precinct which we have no... More

Paid a ridiculous amount of money for not so great food during an evening out with friends. Left feeling hungry and ripped off.

Stopped in at Salsa for breakfast on business trip. Great value hot breakfast, good coffee and friendly staff. Peaceful outlook across the river. Would definitely recommend it and hope to return for dinner on my next trip.

Salsa at the seaport has great tasting tapas and matching wines and beers. The prices are reasonable and serving sizes are good also. This is the perfect place for outdoor dining in the warmer months on the boardwalk. Highly recommended if visiting Launceston

Was a nice day, so great to sit outside for a meal. The food was delicious and their beer list pretty good too. Friendly, happy staff.... the place is great if you're keen on snacking on a variety of treats. Reasonable priced too

Launceston has some fabulous restaurants - some try too hard and others, like this one, just get it right. A good assortment of tapas options and a good wine list make it an enjoyable place to relax and enjoy the seaport. Friendly staff that leave you to enjoy the food but at the same time are there when you need... More

I'd come here and had great coffee with my mum so thought it would be a great breakfast spot with my husband. Poor service from the get go - it was a bit too much of an effort for either waiter to be doing their job, they were completely unenthused and basically rude. When our breakfast finally arrived, some thirty... More

We are sitting on the boardwalk at Launceston's Seaport enjoying the hospitality of the staff and chef at Salsa. The time is 4.50pm and we are STILL able to order from the main menu.
