Enjoyed two meals here. Proprietor actively encourages you to visit from the street front! Don't be put off. First the restaurant offers a free half bottle of good quality of wine. The "cover" is an assortment of pickled carrots, tuna pate, olives and bread - really good! Followed by a sole fillet surprise - it was a surprise too in... More

We were a family of five enjoying a night out. We had an amazing dinner at Salsa Bistro. We had chicken piri piri, Italian spaghetti, and vegetable risotto. All meals were spectacular. The garlic bread with cheese was amazing. The staff and the owner were very friendly and extremely personable. We look forward to our next meal at the Bistro.
