I was visiting Nelson with my 17 year old son, we asked locals for suggestions, Relish was one of the many that came up time and again. When I travel, I rarely if ever go to the same place twice while I am there, but Relish was so good, I found myself wishing we would be there another day so... More

I ordered the seafood chowder and a warm mushroom salad. The server took the initiative to say that for one person it might be too much food as the portions were large. Kudos to her -she asked the kitchen if they would do a half order of the salad and got the OK and I was really pleased. I would... More

My family and I stopped at rel-ish while driving the Selkirk loop and absolutely love the experience. My husband and I agreed that it was the best meal we'd had in months and we live outside of Chicago.

Rel-Ish caught our eye while wandering around town, and didn't disappoint. The menu is varied, (fish, steak, burgers, pasta, salads...something for everyone), and the quality very good. The service was very friendly, perhaps a bit slow the night we were there, but we were a group of 8 people, which often makes timing an issue. On average we paid about... More

I really loved this place, at the beginning I thought it was more a hangout spot, but with my first bite of that Fisherman's Pie my overall opinion changed drastically. Despite one of our partners was a friend to the owners, that kind lady seemed to give everyone at the restaurant a special treatment. A tasteful, nice experience

We reserved, but it was quiet..smaller space than we expected and may be a bit less comfortable if crowded. The service was very good; attentive and opened the door to various conversations on local activity/opportunities. Wine list crosses quite a spectrum, including many BC options; priced a bit more to the high end we thought. The bacon Caesar was a... More

Just to let all you vegetarians know....they make a fantastic veggie burger here. Sometimes it is very difficult for a vegetarian to get a great meal at a restaurant, but not here. Give it a try - you won't be disappointed!

The food is fresh and you can feel the love and creativity that goes into every dish. They have an amazing drink menu...something for everyone. Its not a big place but a great place to enjoy a cozy meal with a loved one or some friends.

Went on a Sunday evening after a hard day of snowboarding. They were pretty full so we sat the small bar overlooking the kitchen. We were intrigued at just how smooth, organized and meticulous their operation was. The chef provided the entertainment for the evening that's for sure! The food was several steps ahead of average eateries. My husband had... More

We chose Re-Lish our first night in Nelson because it was close to the Baker Street Inn hotel and didn't require a reservation. I actually expected an Asian restaurant which once was located in this building, but was pleasantly surprised. We ordered beer (NBC ales and stout) and a glass of white wine; good drinks but nothing to rave about.... More

Thank you for rating rel-ish on trip advisor. In the winter months our capacity is 40 seats, in the summer we expand with another 40 seats on our patio. We love our cozy atmosphere as we feel our customers receive better service this way. More
