“PERFECT!”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

This was a Birthday celebration for 12 people on quite a busy night. The owner (Stuart) was very helpful prior to the event helping with information and suggesting possible options for wheat free food.

Perfect weather for the canapés to be served on the deck - and they were so tasty. The group were full of praise for the standard of the meal - between us we tried all the mains and desserts. All were great - just could not fault anything - tasty, hot, and nicely presented.

A wonderful celebration made perfect by the attentive, but quietly efficient Julia and her helpers. Thank you all for a great evening. Cost was about NZ$80 per person including wine and pre-dinner drinks - real value for money.

“New Year's fabulous dinner”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

I was here last NY eve too and came back because it was so good! Menu is great (esp goat cheese souffle) and view is unbeatable. The main plus is that you can relax in the space and not feel hurried. One hiccup with our meal was dealt with brilliantly by the maitre d, I was very impressed with his service, and the wait staff too. I will be back as often as I can!

“Wonderful restaurant & location”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Recently me and 10 friends went to Relish for after work drinks and nibbles and to watch the sailing race. The staff was wonderfully accommodating to us and sat us outside on the balcony with the best view of the boats. The wine was great, the food even better and our server was top notch. We couldn't ask for a better evening out. We will definitely be back again soon!

“Excellant”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

We have had 2 meals at Relish recently and both were just fabulous. Excellant food, attentive service. One of the visits there was a mix up with the booking and they thought we were coming for dinner instead of lunch. But they quickly re-arranged everything and accommodated 25 people without any hassle. There was no delay in service. Top marks.

“Everchanging views and lovely food”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

It is always a treat to dine at Relish and hard to try new things when you have family favourites! The service is great and the quality of each dish reliable. Beautiful on the deck when the sun is shining and dramatic during a storm. Appreciate that the chef will create a childrens meal depending upon the "pickyness" of the eater!
