Fine dining without the price tag. What a great meal! The place is absolutely great. The prices are very reasonable and the food is to die for! 5/5

We went here to celebrate my daughters engagement. The food was delicious and the staff very polite. There is no onsite parking, but there is plenty of parking available within as short walk. Their chocolate fondants are very good.

Haven’t been here for years and avoided it due to the lack of service offered. What a great surprise to see the service has improved greatly. The food on the night we visited was excellent. I will definitely be going back from now on.

This is a great local restaurant. The food is generally really good. We have dined there a lot over the years and most of the staff are friendly.... but for some reason we seem to get the same Bitter waitress more often than not. There...is a woman that works there who is quite rude. She makes you feels like you are a real inconvenience to her day. Everything is a massive drama and she never checks up on the table. Pretty much have to walk up to the front counter every time you need anything. This lady really needs to brush up on her customer service skills and politeness because they are appalling. She has served us on multiple occasions and same rude service. Relish is a good restaurant ... just needs happier staff.More

Relish on Addison is by far the best restaurant for quality and value that you could experience anywhere.The food is comparable(even better)than to any hatted restaurant without the expensive price tag.It’s always a good sign when you can’t decide what to eat, because all the...dishes sound equally delicious(which they are!). With an excellent wine selection from local, regional and international wineries that are so well priced.The cocktails are by far superior to many local cocktail bars and unbelievably priced.The service is excellent, it’s always busy, so a good sign that it’s the local’s favourite place for regular meals out and special occasions.More

Called to book over phone several times (the answer always being “were fully booked). Decided to walk in anyway and they had an empty restaurant, plenty of tables free. Very poor & rude service and average food! Definitely overrated! I’m only writing this for the...people to know.More

The food is tasty and the size of the meals was very good. You can get a view of the sea in most spots. The fish and chips is a big serving. They do offer some nice cocktails as well.

Great service and food, decor too. Definitely coming back. Restaurant is better than its location would suggest, above a cafe and next to a hairdresser, typical in the area though. Service was super professional and friendly, three waitstaff in attendance was plenty even through there...were lots of covers. Good menu, hard to choose - short ribs were perfect.More
