Have been a regular to this establishment and have never had a bad meal or experience yet. The food is always fresh and served in a timely manner. Prices are reasonable for the quality of food received. Ambience is always great.

Visited a gal-pal who is a Shellharbour local, and who suggested we have lunch here. Top choice. It wasn't nice weather so we ate inside but on a nice day it would be lovely to eat on the verandah. We both chose an entree and a dessert with coffee and it was a lovely lunch for us. I had the... More

After being greeted and seated straight away without a booking for a sunday lunch, we were served this amazing lunch which consisted of their 2 course lunch special for $30. It was yummy with calamari, pumpkin risotto balls, gnochi and barramundi. Served with a side salad which normally are not that great. This one was exceptional. Also a serve of... More

My last visit was a disasterous event. How embarased I was when taking three friends out for dinner, the staff were unfriendly, almost to the point of being rude. The food took an hour to arrived. Meat was undercooked even for a rare serving. Chip and salad bowls were half servings. We were asked to move to the bar area... More

We booked for breakfast with friends. There were 4 in our group. We were seated and it was as though the staff felt they had more important things to do in setting up for lunch [it was 10:00am on a Saturday] and chatting to relatives sitting at another table. We had to ask for the table be cleaned and request... More

Go there for lunch to enjoy the view from upstairs. It is a good solid cafe. The restaurant is a couple blocks up from the harbour and on the second floor. I personally like to sit on the balcony and enjoy a nice breeze. The meals are very nice for a lunch and a nice easy casual dining.

We are locals and have been regulars for the last 8 years. During that time the food has remained of high standard with a well-balanced choice of dishes. Fish, duck, chicken, lamb and beef are always offered in a varying and well thought out menu. Different dish sizes are available to suit any taste and a good selection of wines... More

What an amazing and innovative, modern menu! Everything we ordered was outstanding! My friend and I shared two entrees and two mains and we were so impressed with all dishes, we're already planning our next visit.

Relish on Addison offers a unique dining experience in the heart of Shellharbour village. During the day it's a casual up market cafe, a great place to catch up with friends for lunch or a coffee and dessert. During the evening Relish becomes a contemporary Australian restaurant. The award winning Chef Tom Laws and the team change the menu seasonally with specials on offer to reflect the produce available at various times of the year. Serving great dishes including crispy belly of pork, seared Tasmanian scallops, apple puree & waldorf salad or saffron linguine, sauteed king prawns, squid, mussels in a tomato & lemongrass both. Drop in and try something from our Tapas menu, available from 5:30pm every night and Sundays for lunch as well. Breakfast is served on Sundays. The delectable desserts are made on the premises and change regularly. Relish on Addison is fully licensed with a cocktail bar, allowing you to come in just for a drink. BYO is available Tuesday to Thursday, enabling diners to bring that special bottle of wine that has been aging nicely on the wine rack. Why not join us for happy hour 5.30Pm-6.30Pm enjoying one of our cocktails of the week for $10, one our favourites is the raspberry & lemongrass martini with fresh raspberries, muddled with our lemongrass infused sugar syrup then shaken with Absolute Raspberri Vodka & finished with a dash of cassis.
