There are several places at this Beach front location...and while La Salsa does have as good a view, there are better venues in terms of food. Service was spotty. Shrimp dishes were somewhat boring. We would do drinks here next time and walk to Sunset Grill for a much better meal.

What a relaxing luncheon. "Drunk Shrimp" was out of this world. Excellent service, too. I could easily have spent the day here it was so nice.

We had a great dinner here while watching the big HBO Pay-Per-View fight on every screen in the restaurant and bar. Our server was friendly and spoke very understandable English. When we couldn't decide what to order, he had the cooks prepare an off-menu selection for us with various items along with a big, juicy steak. The live band was... More

Perfect place in San Carlos to party... Feet in the sand, beer in the hand, good music in the ears....and in front of the sea to see a sunset.

Whether for lunch, dinner or just happy hour, La Salsa has what you need. The food is good and plentiful, staff are friendly and the bands that entertain are diverse. We go as a couple or as a group and once you have been a few times, they greet you as old friends, plus remember your favorites.

A group of 4 of us stopped here for snacks and drinks one evening. There was a slight language barrier when I was trying to remember how to ask if our husbands could enter without shirts on...thankfullly I figured it out and they were allowed in.
