Description: It is a new trattoria cafe in the new Limegrove Mall in Holetown, opened within the last month or so. It is not well known yet but as we visit Barbados often we get around and came across it on a Sunday lunch time. I did a small review in a trip report. I also have a copy of their Sunday menu. I spoke with the manager and business seemed quite good and that's in the off season. The type of cuisine is more international than Caribbean or North American but could fit into either category.

“A Great Place to Have Lunch.”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We ate lunch here and were very pleased we did. We sat outside (which is still inside...the mall anyway) at a very tall table. Being short it was a challenge for me to get into the seat but other than that no complaints at all.
Our server was probably the most friendly of our entire stay in Barbados! She made us wish we had found the place early on in our visit so we could return for seconds just to see her again!
Our food was wonderful and fresh and the prices were very reasonable.

“Beautiful fresh food”
Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

At last somewhere on the West Coast where you can buy wonderful fresh produce to eat in or take away. Alison has the place packed with beautiful meats, cheeses etc . The lunchtime menu is wonderful - fresh crusty bread and a choice of healthy fillings. Love " the Italian" baguette.

“Good Lunch in Holetown”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Located in the Limetown Lifestyle Center (think upscale shopping mall) off of the main drag in downtown Holetown, you'll find Relish Epicurea, a relative new upstart in this part of Barbados. Part deli, part gourmet food store, and part restaurant, the four of us sat down at a hightop in its outside dining area for a lovely, little lunch.

We all had sandwiches: Roast beef, the BLT with turkey and the double pulled pork. All were made with very fresh ingredients: lettuce, tomatoes, and onions. The turkey was fresh, the bacon, thick and crispy and the pulled pork tender and sweet. The portions were quite ample, but not huge. The service was friendly although slightly slow. Island time? The outdoor seating area is pleasant and there is additional seating inside. The prices are high, typical of Barbados. ($12 US for the roast beef, $13 US for the pork).

If you're in the area, check it out. The food was good. We'd come back again.

“LOVE IT!”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place...! Great food, great coffee (best brewed cup on the island) and lovely staff! We ate breakfast here twice and it was wonderful... (terrific waffles). As we stay in apartments close by it was great to pick up fresh local and other ingredients for our evening meals (pesto was amazing), and was a welcome relief from the local supermarket nearby that tends to be a bit pricey! Limegrove is full of surprises (Relish Epicurea being one of them)... It's easy to pass it by as the expensive 'brand' names dominate the front of the complex, however don't be put off!

“Healthy and tasty”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

So often I am put off from eating out as I don't want a huge, calorie-ladle lunch. But Relish dished up a great healthy lunchtime salad. The salad was a mixture of lettuce, quinoa, lemon dressing topped with hard boiled egg. The dressing was lovely and light and just right for lunch on a hot day.

My husband had a panini which came with some little side salads. He also enjoyed it.

You can buy most of the restaurant ingredients in the deli and there is a fair bit of choice with imported pasta etc.

A great place for a healthy lunch and very convenient if you are shopping in Lime Grove.
