I am a local of 30 years and try to support the local establishments throughout the winter months when things are slow here. I have dined a Perro Salado numerous times. While the food is good, the service has been quite slow the last few times I have been there. But now the reason for not returning...We were a party of 6 dining midweek. Two of us had the local Dine-Out book. Lowest priced meal is taken off the bill. Two may be used for parties of 4 or more. We were told that we could only use one, as it's at the discretion of the establishment. Now it's the middle of winter and we are locals out supporting local businesses. Most of the other restaurants we dine at don't even stamp your card..."we want you to come back!" Also they add a percentage gratuity for the kitchen staff! Pay them more.

My wife and I have eaten at Perro Salado many times over the decade we have visited Newport and have never been disappointed. The dishes are not your standard Mexican restaurant fare and the dining tables are scattered throughout the "house" so you have a unique ambiance every time you visit. We have never had less than a wonderful time.

We had a late reservation at Perro Salado - good thing since it’s Restaurant Week.

My friends hadn’t been here before so we started with the sticky ribs and avocado fries. These banner apps did not disappoint.

The special week brought a new and special main - grilled salmon tostada: a huge grilled salmon fillet nestled in greens and arugula atop grilled asparagus spears and black beans riding on a homemade tortilla.

We all took the chance. The tostadas arrived piping hot with homemade pico and avocado crema as dressing.

Silence descended for a full fifteen minutes while we ate and exclaimed about how good the whole blend of flavors turned out. Downside - the huge serving made dessert an impossibility so we resolved to return.

Our server Olivia was a delight - kudos to her and the staff. We begged her to push hard to get the salmon tostada on the menu full time to await our return.

Located in an interesting historic house. So many rooms with such nice ambience. Staff was efficient and very nice! Food felt South Americanish some entrees very good, others quite average. You have to pay for parking even in the off season.
