We were VERY pleasantly surprised. Small, right on the water, wonderful chef, one of the two very best meals we had while traveling and eating out every night for three weeks all over New Zealand.

I recently took a guest here for dinner and happily secured a table for our last minute dinner request. I have dined at Relish many times and am always impressed by the food - quality, taste, presentation and variety are consistently excellent! We were fortunate to arrive for dinner just before sunset so could enjoy the waterfront view and then... More

Recently had dinner here on a Friday evening with weekend guests. The food was OK but we were all a bit disappointed with our meals.
