We continue to hear from our guests that it was the ‘best wedding meal they’ve ever had’! Many also mention how wonderful the Salsa staff were, and we can attest to how well we were treated by those of you that helped us plan, fed us and served us on our big day!

Andrea Judd

I just would like to thank you all for making our wedding reception an incredibly enjoyable event. I have been hounded by emails from my guests sing the praises of the Salsa team, the food, the venue and the all-round experience. Salsa made our night everything we wished for and more.

Andrew & Nicky Sporer

Thank for making our son and new daughter-in-law’s wedding a fantastic evening.
The food was amazing as was the service and the staff. The whole evening ran as smooth as silk. Everyone raved about the venue and the food, and I know some interstate guests went back the next day to dine. A truly wonderful place for a reception.

Lee & Peter

To the wonderful team at Salsa, we would just send you all our most sincere thanks for Sharee and Andrew’s wedding reception on 25/11. As always, your food was magnificent – and the degustation menu was a work of art! Our special thank you to your brilliant front of house staff. Guests were treated as VIP’s – which was really appreciated in the steamy weather!
