Family friendly, excellent food and service. Service is quick and the chefs churn out consistently great dishes. We had a table of 13 ppl and all the food turned up at the right time.

It was our first time to eat out around Port Douglas, my husband picked up an idea to have lunch in Salsa Bar & Grill. It was lovely, solid and delicious food. I tried the Tuna Tataki and Mahi Mahi which are so fresh and tasty. Service was friendly. Overall experience is not disappointing. If you visit Port Douglas, try... More

We have been to Salsa multiple times and they never fail to meet our expectations. The food is awesome, the service is awesome and if you don't try Salsa then you are definitely missing out! You need to book in as advance for a dinner reservation. If you miss getting in for dinner they are also open for lunch

Been at Salsa with my wife and a couple of friends for dinner and got our best food so far in our two weeks trip to Australia! Be sure to book at least two days in advance, and try their daily specials. Super ingredients, super cooking and very nice and relaxed atmosphere! Highly recommended.

Excellent food and attentive service. While prices high I felt it was worth it. Food was fresh and perfectly presented. We enjoyed Prawn Linguine and Jambalaya both Restuarant signature dishes. Dips to start were awesome. Delicious cocktail of mango Margarita and tasty oak ridge Chardonnay wine. Service was polite, attentive and fast. This restaurant is a must visit in my... More

We tried to get a table for Lunch and dinner a few times but we're always full or completely booked out while on a short break to Port. Thankfully we decided to try a late walk in with no booking and by chance got a table. I had the Peperinchino pasta and boy friend had the lamb special. The pasta... More

We had received recommendations for Salsa Grill from friends who visited the area and I tried to book at table before we left on our trip. The online booking said they were full so I emailed the restaurant and they were lovely to find a table for us during the busy holiday season. When we arrived we were delighted that... More
