Stopped to have lunch, decided a margarita was in order. Sat outside overlooking the river, don't remember what I ordered for lunch but will never forget the best ever margarita.

The Twisted Cork Café has a beautiful setting, indoor and outdoor. The service is friendly, but not overbearing. Even though they have many options for Gluten-Free and Vegetarian diets, the food is still AMAZING for those who could care less. This is our favourite date-night spot!

We ate outside on the patio overlooking the river and had a really good experience. The fish tacos were spot on as was the spinach salad. The wait staff was extremely friendly, attentive & accommodating. The wine selection was very nice and prices were reasonable. This is a wonderful place to dine & enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Salida CO!

Every time we have stopped while traveling either to Denver or to our home across monarch pass, we have had a wonderful meal. It doesn't matter what day we have stopped or whether it is lunch or dinner, our meal has been fresh, flavorful and very appealing! Sitting outside in the summer just adds to everything. It is a must!

This place is not real easy to find behind a parking lot and business building - but we were rewarded when we found it. Good service, the smoked turkey panini sandwich was very good and the portions were very generous. It looked like they were baking their own bread - it was great. We were on a road trip and... More

Delicious food, reasonable prices, and a fine flight of red wines which can be purchased for take home. We dined on the patio with a view of the Arkansas River and mountains. Wait staff was accurate, friendly and attentive.

The menu provides a variety of options including various cultural dishes. There is also a selection of wines, beers, and drinks, all at very reasonable prices. Our patio evening seating was perfect. The wait staff was helpful without being too intruding.
