A friend took us here because it is one of her favourite restaurants in Port Douglas. Overall it was great. I had the jambalaya which was good, but not amazing. My friend had the tuna special which was awesome. We shared some appetizers and the chicken spring roll was excellent. The portions were large and we left very content. 😊

A perfect way to finish a perfect day at the Pt D markets. Salsa was buzzing with holiday makers and the service was still spot on. A love that you are offered the daily cocktail while being seated, no messing around bring on the party. The food presentation is stunning and the flavours wonderful. Happy chefs = happy food, happy... More

Salsa used to be a favourite from past visits to Port Douglas but this visit the food was really disappointing. One of the special dishes had gyoza's which were virtually inedible, the dumplings also were not great. The vibe and service is still great, lets hope they pick up their game in the kitchen.

My mum and I had jambalaya but we both didn't know what the chef wanted to achieve with the meal. No interesting flavor at all and was like $35. I wanted to add salt as it didn't really taste nice but there was no table salt and waiting stiff was too busy.

We had a lovely table on the verandah and sat watching the sunset thr the trees and park opposite - it was magical. The food was excellent - a good menu with lots of choices. Beautifully presented and delicious. The pulled pork poppers were amazing as was the tuna tatami and the barramundi (main course). Then try the chocolate soufflé-... More

This is the first time I have eaten here and the food is great. Floor staff are very knowledgeable about the food and drinks and were also very happy to check with the kitchen regarding options for those with food allergies. Best tuna I have had in a very long time. All surrounding tables were full but everyone seemed to... More
