Relish is one of my favourite eating places in the Illawarra. I recently had lunch there with a friend and ate from the set Lunch Menu and really enjoyed it. The food was and service were both excellent.

Upstairs and far from the hubbub of Addison street, the restaurant provides a pleasant family atmosphere with good food and service. Lovely fresh seafood and dips made for a lovely lunch.

Popped in on Sunday morning for breakfast at 11am and we were the only ones there! We have been to Relish many times and we always have beautiful meals. Coffee was great- my partner had Relish breakfast and I had the eggs Benedict with salmon. We were served quickly and my missing mushrooms were brought out quickly afterwards too. Great... More

I attended with 5 other women and we all ordered different meals. The service was quite good and the staff very friendly. They had a two course set menu for $22 that was exceptional value and great tasting.

Amazing food! We had the pork belly and seared scallops with pomegranate for entree and a scotch fillet for main. Every single item on the plate showed attention to detail and had been cooked to perfection. Pure finesse! Will definitely be coming back.

We recently choose Relish for a quick mid-week dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The restaurant had a reasonable number of tables filled when we arrived at 7pm without a booking which is always a good sign. The food was lovely. The entree tasting plate is a winner which showcases a few of the different entrees (but could do with... More
