We had the vegetarian enchiladas, burritos and chimichangas shared between 2 adults and 2 children aged 4 and 7 We thoroughly enjoyed each meal. The service was friendly and very considerate of the children. A bit noisy for my liking but that's just showing my age!

Visited Salsa during a weekend away - and it was so good the first night we ended back there again! The food was really lovely - we tried burritos the first night which were exactly as you'd expect - and then I tried sea bass the next night which was superb.

Really enjoyed our trip here! Quick and friendly service with reasonable pricing and great atmosphere. The only suggestion would be to include more wraps with the fajitas but other than that it was excellent.

Really good, decor was great, service was good and the food was really tasty. Nacho starter to share, chicken & chorizo pie, tortillas with chicken & steak, Mexican rice and 5 bottles of Sol came to £44 which was really good value. Very busy and staff were really friendly. If you want something different in Penrith give them a try,... More

I ordered a chicken supreme dish and my husband had the mixed tapas - both were beautifully presented and tasted lovely. The service was friendly and... More
