Salsa's is one of those places that must be good because you need to book well ahead in peak season to ensure a table, especially if there are 9 of you. We did just that and booked a month before arriving in PD. The food is beautifully presented and very tasty and this has been the norm every time we... More

OMG!! This has to be the best restaurant I have ever been too. Entree, main and desert wow. This is the best meal I have ever eaten. The service and staff were great and are so good at what they do. You need to book in to get a table but it is well worth it. This is must do... More

Several years since we've been to Port so we were looking forward to our night out at Salsa. The food was as excellent as we remembered but the service has really gone downhill. We hadn't booked (hey, we're on holiday) so we got a very frosty reception and were told the only table available was next to the kitchen -... More

We came here for an early dinner after spending the day on the reef snorkelling. We ordered the stuffed peppers with pulled pork, fried squid and salmon tartare for the entree. All were nice but not amazingly wow. We had the chinese duck with rice, snapper with indonesian rice and yellow fin tuna with garlic mash, cucumber noodles in a... More

We tried to book in for dinner, but nothing was available for couple of weeks! So we came for lunch instead. Cocktails were superb, and we had the olive bread to share and then we both had the gnocchi of the day which was delicious. Service was maybe a tiny bit slow but totally understandable as this is definitely a... More

One of our annual Port Douglas favourites which does not disappoint. Many PD restaurants rely on the passing tourist trade, however you can see why the locals dine at Salsa too. Thai chicken spring rolls, pulled pork poppers and tempura barramundi all delicious. Open chicken dumplings might have been a little less "tough" if sealed, but the flavour was there.... More
