This is a nice, intimate Mexican restaurant that does a great job at seafood dishes. I highly recommend the scallop tostada. For the quality (and quantity) prices are very reasonable. I will go back the next time I visit Newport.

Perro Salado is a really fun restaurant in downtown Newport in an old colonial house so there’s like 3 tables per room which ends up being a really fun environment. There’s also a great outdoor patio. The grilled Caesar salad is excellent a bit of...More

When you think of Newport dining, seafood prob comes to mind. But Perro Salado his hiding the Best ribs and margaritas around. One would need a second visit just to see what else is on the menu.
