We have been holidaying in Port Douglas regularly for over 20 years. In that time, we have NEVER missed at least one meal at Salsa bar and Grill. We have to take our hats off to Bill who has been the owner and still is working in the kitchen! The whole thing just works so well...and when we were there,... More

I had the fish in a coconut curry sauce that was perfectly cooked and flavorful. My husband had a seafood payeya which he also liked and we both shared their sampler dessert. I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting port Douglas.

We've been traveling around Australia for about two weeks and have had several amazing meals. Our dinner at Salsa stands out! We arrived without a reservation and were told it would be about 20 minutes for a table. The bartender was pleasant and helped us choose a delicious cocktail. And after about 20 minutes we were seated as promised. The... More

We've been in Port Douglas for 2 days and visited twice already. The first time was for a cheeky afternoon cocktail and snack. The waitress was lovely, service was impeccable, cocktails and food were amazing (highly recommend the fish taco from the bar menu and a cosmopolitan). The second night we rolled in at 10pm. We had just been in... More

From the checkin at the start to the last minute of our departure the service was exceptional as was the food. The prawns and pork entree were amazing not to be outdone by the Creole Jimbalaya which was excellent. Being a coeliac they catered for my diet and nothing was a problem. Our waitress Rads was unbelievable, friendly and really... More

We visited this restaurant five years ago and were pleased to see it was still here. I had one of the two specials of the day - fresh snapper, and loved it. Food is great, presentation is beautiful and the service from our waiter Roy was exceptional. Highly recommend it.

Dropped in a hot night and despite being very full they accommodated us with no problem. Very friendly staff who looked after us extremely well. Delicious food with menu to cover all tastes. The Creole Jambalaya was excellent. Family friendly.

We enjoyed the view of the inlet and a delicious lunch at Salsa. Attentive staff served us exceptional pulled pork and egg rolls. We will return for dinner before we leave Port Douglas!
