Let's start with the atmosphere - so warm and inviting. It's quaint decoration and eclectic touch makes it a place you want to be. We ate inside but there is lovely outside seating too. The food is authentic, prepared with care, and really delish. Supportive of Gluten free me I had the most wonderful enchiladas with beef. Comfort food at... More

We enjoyed steamed little necks with bacon that were very flavorful as well as the melt off the bone Sticky ribs! I washed my apps down with the Fruta de Passion cocktail that was delicious! Lastly I had the highly recommended short rib tacos. I can't wait to go back!

We had the sticky ribs during out tour and I think I could have easily ate 2 racks of these! We were there in the afternoon so it was quiet but it looks to have a great atmosphere in the evening and have a cool patio to chill on.

I love Perro Salado, and I agree with all the five-star reviews below, and I love the short ribs and the avocado fries and the white bean and kale salad. However, diners should be aware of something that was new to me: two of us dined there recently, and a 20 percent gratuity had been added to the bill when... More

One of our favorite Newport restaurants. Why? Charming location and decor, but more importantly the food and interesting margaritas. Short ribs are delicious and we've never been disappointed in a nightly special. The jalapeño and blood orange margaritas are worth the trip alone. Don't miss it.

In a touristy town, loaded with bland-Yankee-sailor-preppy-boring restaurants, Perro Salado packs a punch - and the best kind of punch, possible. Whenever we are in Newport, we make sure we dine at Perro Salado. Food is always, always good. The chef is not shy with heat or the many layered flavors of authentic Mexican cuisine. All the better, when enjoyed... More

As a local I'm always looking for a great food. Perro Salado is my go to place. They never disappoint. Sticky ribs and grilled Caesar salad; both out of this world! Service in the back bar is hospitable and always a pleasant experience. Zack mixes up a great jalapeño margarita and is always pleasant and knowledgeable. It's always a positive... More

Went here with a group of 7 for a Saturday dinner. A stop for spicy 'ritas a few months earlier precipitated this most recent visit. We were not disappointed. Luckily a table was reserved earlier in the day by our least patient cohort. Upon arrival we were quickly seated in a small room with only one other table (more on... More

We were lucky to have our Innkeeper make us a reservation. Even in January, it was packed. The food is so creative and delicious. The cucumber margarita is fabulous. We sat in a small room in the back with a bar. It was crowded and seating was a bit tight, but well worth it. Service was top notch.

Perro salado is my new favorite funky little eclectic hangout in Newport. In addition to its great vibe that reminds me a bit of some of the outstanding hole-in-a-wall eateries in the Crescent City, they've got the best gumbo I've had north of N'awlins! The Berkshire Brewing Company's Drayman's Porter they had on tap to go with the gumbo was... More
