“Nothing. special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013

I have seen this restaurant many times while traveling around Penang, but have never eaten there. Because of the name I thought it would be either Spanish or Mexican, but it was neither. The choices were not that spectacular, with steak (with the ever present disgusting Malaysia black pepper sauce, chicken thighs or one dish with chicken breast, pasta and some interesting appetizers. Two of us had the baked chicken breast with mozzarella cheese and we both found it to be sort of bland. One friend had pasta with salmon which was very good. Another had the pate, which was average. The service was good , but the atmosphere was very noisy for a high class restaurant. It appears that they get a lot of business from the hotel guests and tourists. I wouldn't waste my time going there again.

“a very busy bistro”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2013

a lot of people seems to always go here for some reasons. it's always quite busy. i found the food to be quite average, but of reasonable quality. it's inexpensive, which is perhaps why locals also flock here. worth a try, but prepare to wait a long time for food.

“Delicious food, cozy atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2013 via mobile

We popped into Salsas because it was close as the extremely heavy rain began and we are glad we did!! Our food was delicious, really well cooked and reasonably priced! For 3 people we all had a drink and main and was only 120RM. The meal began with a lovely fresh bun brought to our table and our only regret was that we wish we had more!
Service was good and waiters were friendly.

Most dishes on the menu were highly recommended.

“Pretty good food!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2013

Was there on my birthday. Quite nice atmosphere. Sitting indoor by the street. We ordered their signature mushroom soup as starter, soup was fantastically delish!!! Not prepared from canned soup but prepped from fresh & raw ingredients. Wife had smoked salmon. Fish was fresh, vr well prepped by the chef. I had steak. The beef was juicy and chef had it well done as per to my par. Price wise, unbelievably reasonable. It's quite a classy restaurant, appropriately dressed customer service personels, cozy environment and most of all, peaceful place to dine.

The sense of western taste is there. The X-factor is there. Do give it a try, nice place for dates, family gatherings and even for corporate dinners. I will definately go back there sometime.
