“Delicious”

Wonderful food and a relaxed but elegant atmosphere. We loved everything we ordered, from the appetizer trio to the entrees and dessert. Highly recommend for a nice night out in PD!

“Meh”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014 via mobile

After reading so many great reviews I think my expectations may have been a bit unreasonable. Service was very good- friendly and attentive but not annoying; venue is delightful; food was ok but did not meet expectations.

“One of the best fish dishes I've had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

We ate at Salsa on our first night in Port Douglas, having made reservations before leaving the US. I had a curried fresh fish, which one of the best cooked, perfectly seasoned fish dishes I have ever head. Simply outstanding. Simply put, there's a reason this is ranked as a top restaurant in Port Douglas.

The prices are relatively high, but keep in mind you're in a resort town in a relatively isolated corner of a relatively isolated country, so the transport costs to the table are going to be higher.

Highly recommended.
