Reviewed January 20, 2012

Had an excellent meal at Relish last night. Every dish was a winner from starter through to dessert.
Highly recommended.

“Stunning outlook, great food, excellent experience.”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

We went to Relish for a special occasion. The birthday boy had carefully researched and chosen the venue. We were warned that they were slightly short staffed, and so knew to take that into account.
Two of our party unfortunately had their backs to the stunning view, and had to put with the oohs and ahhhs as the sun went down on an absolutely stunning vista. It's hard to see how this can be helped.
We had a bread and dips selection as a starter, and enjoyed it, although it was not as generous as some similar platters we recently had sampled.
The mains were excellent, the salmon was cooked to perfection, and the accompanying taste delights enhanced... I loved the coriander creme fraise. The lamb went down well, and was considered a serious amount of meat, and the pork although not what was expected was declared delicious and tender. The vegetarian enjoyed the arancini.
On the downside, no one suggested we order any sides, and so we were light on accompanying salad or veg, expecting that something would come with the main, and that the sides were extras for those who desired LOTs of healthful vitamins.
I was satisfied with the amount of food, but the Birthday boy had run part of the Abel Tasman that day, and probably should have ordered extra bread and dips just for him!
We enjoyed the atmosphere, the service and the food...just a little bit more of it, and it would have been perfect. We shared desserts and they were all delicious, my favorite if I had to choose, was the apple cheesecake. Bringing the dessert out with a candle, and having the whole restaurant spontaneously join in singing Happy Birthday was a lovely touch!

“Very nice food!”
Reviewed December 17, 2011

The food was delicious but service was terrible. We went during world cup time and there was one staff member in the kitchen and one looking after front of house which was certainly not sufficient! Long wait for food but the meals really were nice- well presented and very tasty.
Prices were reasonable and the views really are magical- especially at sunset!
