Like most here, I'd heard rave reviews. We used to live at Clifton Beach, a half hour south of PD but never got around to trying Salsa. Back here on a client summit, we took 70 clients on a Friday night to spoil them - and spoiled they were! Given such a large booking you would think Salsa could be... More

This is the first time my husband and I have been to P Doug and when anyone found out we were coming here they raved about Salsa. Never have we had a place be so universally loved (friends, pilates instructor, colleagues, family, random people in shops!). And we agree! Lovely ambiance (relaxed), satisfying food with attentive and personal service. The... More

We were a little disappointed in our meal here. Portions small and lacked taste. Could have more choices on menu

I have been to this restaurant on numerous occasions and the service, drinks and food are always excellent. It is wise to book if you want to eat on the weekend particularly as it is very popular. We will definitely be back next time we are in Port Douglas.

This would have to be the best restaurant in Port Douglas! I have never been disappointed, except when it is fully booked of course! Easy to book online. Magnificent selection of dishes, cocktails are superb! The thing that puts this restaurant ahead of the others in PD is the staff. They are friendly, attentive, helpful, and despite being constantly busy,... More

A decent restaurant with above average food and service. Better views can be found elsewhere for the same food quality. If you have three nights in Port Douglas, this is where I would go as my third choice.
