We had come out of the Odeon cinema in Portlaoise about 8.30 pm looking for somewhere to eat. I couldn't get any WiFi and a local publican (and nearby trader) recommended Relish Brasserie. We looked at the menu and both of us found somethings we liked so we went for it! The bistro is above a pub that is currently... More

Have frequented Relish several times over last 12 months but unfortunately on the last 2 occasions both my husband and I have been disappointed. Food presentation was not great and food was served warm rather than hot. Plus have GF options but no GF beer on offer which makes no sense. Sorry Relish we won't be back

I wanted to like this place more. I really liked what I saw on the menu. Maybe it was because we were there about 6pm and the place was empty. Maybe the main lunch/dinner chef was on a break, I don't know but despite all the flavours that the menu promised, everything was really lacking in flavour, bland even. We... More

Small restaurant in centre of Portlaoise.Stairs up are very steep so tread carefully. Ceiling low with the result it was very hot ,not sure if there was air conditioning,if there was it was inadequate.Service was sketchy to say the least. I had the chicken pot pie which was way over salted and could not eat much of. I believe the... More

What can I say, we've eaten here many times and I always recommend this place to family and friends! Food is fab, decent size portions and it won't cost you an arm and a leg. The restaurant itself is quite small but there is always a great atmosphere and lovely friendly staff! We will be back soon for sure.

It's a very small restaurant that is definitely not for an intimate or quite dinner (especially on Fridays and Saturdays evenings). The noise when is full, it's crazy! The food however, is good. Not the best, just good. The price they're charging is for a nice restaurant that offers a better experience in terms of environment and meal quality. Unfortunately,... More

Had a family meal here during the week (7 people) - food was fantastic even my 8 year old son who's eating out diet usually consists of sausages or nuggets tried a couple of the other dishes around him. He is a fan of Braised Beef now. Service was fantastic - especially considering the restaurant was full. Everything came on... More

Was looking forward to my visit here as I heard good things, I'm not gonna say much only the food was ok, service was shocking, clearly the waitress (who seemed to be the only one on the floor) hates her job and might want to consider a career change, unfriendly, inexperienced, sour faced, we all have bad days but my...
