Lovely food. Atmosphere within the restaurant very nice. Large portions so if have as smaller appetite skip a starter.

“Mexican? Barely”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Salsa would like to be a Mexican restaurant but unfortunately it doesn't quite make it. Mexican food should have great depth of flavor but that was missing in Salsa's offerings. Nachos were served in a small bowl with a bit of tasteless cheese drizzled over the top. Other toppings were equally bland, including guacamole. Nothing better can be said about the tacos, fajitas and burritos. Service was okay but why must you have to ask for eating utensils to be brought to your table? We were a party of six and all agreed we would not return.

“A different spice than sub-continent?”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

If you want spice and want a change - try Salsa! Not the best Tex-Mex I've eaten, but more than adequate - with a reasonably priced and selected wine list. The food was good and plentiful - so by no means the best restaurant in Keswick but better than many of the pubs and on the night we ate - a lively atmosphere!

“Used to be better”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We come here every year whilst in the Lakes on holiday. It was Friday and the place was empty almost. I think I know why.

The food was OK but we have known it better in the past, The the corn chips were straight out of Doritos bag and half of them were broken, The food was tasty but the focus was on the carbohydrates IE the rice and the bread, to save money by the looks of things. The service was somewhat lacklustre. the waitress hardly smiled and had no expression at all when talking to us. She just didn't seem interested.
Such a shame as we have some great times there in the past

“English Mexican't”
Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

Dinner party of four adults and two children. As another reviewer mentioned, "bland" and probably "canned". Ordered nachos with "the works" which turned out to be a first for us... nachos in a small BOWL filled with meager portions of cheese, shards of stringy old beef, and spits of sour cream and guacamole. Main entrees were passable. Service was disinterested and slow. We should have gone to the wood oven pizzeria.
