Having tried Salsa Bar & Grill for the first time, this was a sure winner! The grilled food was excellent, drinks were great and the service simply wonderful.

“Ox burger...really?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

It's actually a hobby of ours to find and eat at Mexican restaurants in other countries; we have found totally amazing Mexican food all over the world.

Salsa was suggested to us and we gave it a try. Once we saw the menu sans Mexican food, we started to leave. Being hungry and tired, we tried burgers which must have been extremely popular as almost every other table had burgers (which they eat with knife and fork).

First bite I thought that it was a little odd...could not figure it out and keep eating. It was good in an interesting kind of way...not your typical burger in the US.

The meat was very dense and tasteless...I kept adding pepper and it made it much better. I asked the waiter what meat it was when I was just one bite short of finishing the whole thing.

Ox! I kept thinking OX???

So just a heads up that you might be eating ox...you may love it or hate it...it was just "okay" to us.

“Simply good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

After a long day of sightseeing we decided to try this place out, although at first we were a bit afraid it would be one of those generic latin-american style food places that promise a lot, but don't really deliver. Well, Salsa proved that first impression wrong.

It still isn't very special, but they give the standards a nice twist and top it off with good preparation. My Salsa Burger was very tasty, my girlfriends chicken was good too.

A nice place to eat when you're not in the mood for fish or something special (which in Bergen - as in Norway on the whole - usually also means very expensive by European standards), but hust want a nice spicey meal.

“Best quesadillas ever!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

We found this place by accident in Bergen and were blown away. The food is absolutely outstanding and service was exceptional. It's not even expensive and we walked in without reservation!!! It's better mexican food than what you would find in US or other countries.. Absolutely must visit if you are in Bergen!!

“A good meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

The food was served very fast which is good when you eat alone. But some of the food was Not properly heated which made the experience go Down a point. Apart from that the food was great. I got the spareribs. Very different from the ones on Denmark, but good.
