“Not much to look at but the food was excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

You have to look for this restaurant in a strip of buildings. Several locals recommended it and it really was a wonderful meal. Kudos to the chef!

“Wow...surprising find!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

We ate at Salud onTuesday/Spanish night! Wine was 2 for 1 and their wine list is in Wine Spectator! Food was outstanding and creative. There was also live Spanish music with an excellent guitarist. I'm not usually a fan of live music because it is too loud for conversation, but this group was perfect for the ambiance of Salud. It is in a strip mall and somewhat hard to find, but well worth the stop!

“More than you expect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Excellent meal, very friendly, attentive service, and a lively ambiance combine to make this a great dining out experience. Plenty of parking, too. Live music of above average quality, with the musicians stationed near the bustling bar.

Here's a tip: check in via "foursquare" and you'll get a free mohito!!

On the evening we showed up, they also had a special on wines: buy a bottle from a select part of the wine list, and you'll get a second bottle for free! Whatever you don't drink, take home with you.

The menu is varied, the food very well prepared and with large portions -- so large and good that we didn't have room for dessert. The wine list may well be the best on the island, and the wines are reasonably priced. The chianti riserva 2007 was $47.

Enjoy! We did...

“BEST FOOD ON ST.CROIX!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Start with wine list...the best selection on Island. All of their Mediteranean inspired dishes are delightfully prepared and over the top delicious. You cannot go wrong with their Tapa menu either. Be prepared to spend some money but you will drive home sated and with great memories.

“Still In My Top Two Favorite's on STX”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

We tried Salud again, with friends it's still a top-notch place to dine on STX. The mussels, oh the mussels, we just can't get enough of them. Cooked in a creamy-lemony broth with Chorizo, they are divine! Love the gnocci too and the osso bucco is falling off the bone good, but we liked it better when they were serving it on creamy polenta, rather than the bread pudding type thing. Still, the food is pretty fabby and the service is great.
