My family closed this restaurant last weekend after the best meal we had traveling for a week through the Nelson Marlborough region. We visited a number of the top recommended restaurants in the region and frankly many don't live up to their reputation. Everywhere you go you are shown virtually the same menu so we were looking for something more creative and Relish provided what others couldn't. They make use of a lot of Asian flavors in creative ways and take care in the preparation and presentation. My goat cheese souffle was slow in coming but that is because the chef wasn't happy with his first attempt. He obviously really cares about the quality of the food and attention to detail which is so often lacking. I am not certain why Relish is 6th on the list, we ate at some of the higher scoring restaurants and found them less innovative or crowded. We didn't sit on the deck but the views out the windows made up for that and we didn't feel let down by our seating. We are very happy we ended our holiday with a meal at Relish.
