Great waiters and waitresses. Food was very good. Music is offered if arriving later. A lovely place to talk before the music.

We decided to try this restaurant based on its TripAdvisor rating and we were pleased we did. Food and service were great, dancing to the 60s/70s/80s music the band played was fun, and the party atmosphere of the restaurant was just what we hoped for since it was a birthday celebration.

Over the course of a week in Melaque we visited La Salamandra 4 times as we were staying close by at Laguna Del Tulle! The first time was at midnight after a long day of travel. We poked our heads in and the staff was closing up and the kitchen was closed but they invited us in and served us... More

We have had their buffet on Sundays and dinners during the week. The setting in the back yard is the best and romantic. Everyone receives a complimentary 2ounce shooter of Tequila while you look over there menu. Food and service 10/10. Reservations required for dinner. Always look forward to dining at La Salamanders.

We had a very pleasant surprise this week as we discovered La Salamandra. The staff was very welcoming and the service was good. They advised of how long our meal would take to prepare. They make all fro scratch mostly. The food was ever so good ! Wide variety on the menu . We will for sure go back.

We enjoyed and evening with friends but, despite the great attention and service, I left feeling a little down. The sopa Aztec was large but lukewarm and not the best I have ever had. My coconut shrimp was a mistake, too much batter, too much coconut and way too dry to be fit to eat. My friends liked it better... More

We enjoy eating here two or three times a year while we are living in Melaque. We have found it to be consistently good. The food and service is a treat and the ambiance of an outdoor court yard with trees, plants and a pool that is lit up with indirect lighting. The only thing that bothers us is that... More

Great food, Sunday brunch, a little higher priced but worth it. Walk in the door and enjoy a complimentary shot of tequila, Yum..

The restaurant is beautiful and the food is very good. They have love music most nights, including Elvis! Drawbacks are that they can be very busy and there can be mosquitoes.

Excellent menu. The coconut shrimp seem to be go to item (5 of 10 at our table ordered the shrimp) but all of the food is and the service is also excellent. Get there early though. Once the restaurant fills up as it usually does, the food takes a little longer to get but the margaritas make the time fly... More
