“Relaxed dining, great menu”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

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 CAD40 per person and most of us had a starter/dessert, main course and drinks.

Would definitely recommend, and hopefully will be back next year!

“For connoisseurs tastes”
Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

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

“Creative menu!”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

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 hit.

Menu is varied and creative in combinations of ingredients. Portions are generous. Goat cheese stuffed prawns, warm spinach salad appies were very tasty, however based on portions 1 appetizer may have been enough...some of the St. Louis style ribs main course became the next nights appies.

Dinner for 2 with appies/without drinks should run $70 - $90. When in Nelson, this restaurant is worth a try!

Thank you for rating us on trip advisor and visiting rel-ish. We are very pleased that your visit was great. We do our best to price items accordingly to the standard food/liquor cost equation. Our space is cozy in the winter months. In the summer months out patio opens and we double in size.

“Excellent food!!!!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

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!
