Great restaurant. I cant remember the last time I met such great staff and their dish and product knowledge was second to none. Highly recommended!
Dived into PD to skip the rain - so pleased our original restaurant choice was shut. My wife and I have eaten at top class restaurants around the world so we're not easy to please. The food was SENSATIONAL - the tapas special and pulled pork were "to die for", my wife had the Thai chicken spring rolls and was delighted. We'd already agreed we would not have pudding but after those four dishes we just had to see what was on offer. The mango Alaskan baked bomb was ORGASMIC and the creme brulee was as good as they get - we have had worse food in Michelin two star restaurants - it was simply breathtaking!!!! Well done Salsa - simply outstanding food and great low-key friendly service!!!
My boyfriend Nick and I were at the Grill a week ago on a Thursday night on recommendation from Jaqueline from the Lorna Jane shop when we were over from the UK on holiday. I can honestly say 100% that it was the best meal of our 24 day holiday in Australia and Hong Kong!! We had the most delicious food- sharing plate starter, barramundi and nanagui fish main dishes and gorgeous chocolate souffl? desserts!!! Oh and the cocktails, Isabelle's epiphany, strawberry champagne martini, Bloody Mary and my favourite the Obama Mojito!!!!! The staff were so friendly and informative and enthusiastic and the barmen actually let me have the Mojito recipe, never happens in the Uk! If we were still there, which I wish we were, adored Port Douglas, would go back there in a heartbeat!! Love it!!! Debi Bennett : ))) 10* Plus!!!
Absolutely perfect in every way. No visit to Port Douglas is complete without at least one meal at Salsa.
Always a great and unforgettable experience

OK ... I'll admit it's been 12 months since our last visit to Port... Gotta Get BACK There!!! Because not only is it 'the place of my heart' it has also attracted some of Australia's best chefs. The restaurant competition in Port is fierce because there are so many great ones... but the King of the pile, the TopDog, the Creme de la Creme has GOT to be my favourite restaurant of all - Salsa Bar and Grill! You can't beat it for originality, style, friendliness and longevity! Go Salsa!
Why this restaurant has not won any national awards proves how bias the restaurant reviewers are in this country, I have been a regular of Salsa for over 10 years in both locations and time after time have outshined those so called national award winning restaurants.
Everything about our experience at Salsa was impeccable, perfect food, amazing service, and a beautiful restaurant made for a memorable evening. We will be back for sure
I have been eating at Salsa Bar since the old days and have continued to be a huge supporter. It has become almost a Religious Experience to enjoy Sunday Lunch at Salsa. Service is faultless and enthusiastic with great knowledge and understanding of the dishes. Food is consistantly good with an ever changing menu. Sadly Salsa is a standout in an almost wilderness of good food in the Cairns and Port Douglas Region. There are a number of Restaurants that win awards in the area that would not survive in a competitive environment. The exception is Salsa Bar where the reviews from Melbourne and Sydney Residents speak for themselves. It is THE Restaurant the locals dine at. I would not hesitate to recommend it.
Every time I visit Port Douglas, I never fail to eat at Salsa. The food is amazing in such a great location. The service is friendly and great. One of the best restaurants I have been to.
Consistently amazing meals and friendly,efficient service.
Great food and excellent Customer service. Just a great all round service.
The best and most friendliest place to eat in Port Douglas, and almost anywhere.
Our favourite place to dine in Port Douglas, every meal is perfection, the atmosphere is wonderful and the service is brilliant.

Overlooking the beautiful waters of Port Douglas, Salsa Bar & Grill is the go-to venue for locals and tourists alike. Situated on the popular Wharf Street precinct, Salsa Bar & Grill’s white timber furnishings, latched windows and pendant lighting are reminiscent of a Queenslander beach house, creating a relaxed tropical experience for all who visit. With a signature lime and mint-infused Obama Mojito in hand, choose from a delicious range of lunch options such as pulled pork filled piquillo poppers with smoked chipotle emulsion and sweet corn salsa. While waiting for the sun to set, don't go past rice crusted wild barramundi with green paw paw, peanuts and coconut water caramel followed by a dessert like gianduja hazelnut bombe with coconut gel and cherry ragout topped in fairy floss.
Mountain pepper rubbed kangaroo with apricot flap jack and tomato marmalade.
