“Great food, service not so good!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2014

Coming back down home to visit an old friend, we called into Relish for a quick bite to eat. Very quiet in there on the night but that didn't bother us. However, the service was rather bad. While the waitress was absolutely lovely when we did see her, I was waiting at the front for about ten minute to be greeted. She seemed to spend the entire time in the kitchen, leaving no one out on the floor at all. In saying that, the food was delicious, but however, it is definitely important to have staff out with customers at all times. Also, I would possibly re-think moving where the wine glasses are stored. Both glasses of wine that I ordered came in roasting hot glasses.

We had a meal booked for 2 on a saturday evening. The service was very fast. We didnt have to wait long for any of our courses. The food was fresh hot & very tasty my wife had two drinks I had one and tea afterwards . For this 3 course meal & drinks our bill came to 60 euro which was great value & service for the price . I will definitely be returning &would recommend anyone to give relish a try its a lovely place to dine

“AMAZE-BALLS!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

Oh!-My!-GOD!!! From India, New Delhi, couldn't have been there at a better time! Monday night, half the price on the meals, would have paid double and even more on it if i could... Food was amazing and made to perfection, if you're looking for a satisfying meal and experiencing the unexpected food wise, Relish Brasserie Portlaoise Ireland is the place to go!

Enjoy guys, i know i did, enjoy the all-round experience!

“Excellent Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

Really enjoyed our visit to Relish. We decided not to have a formal office Christmas party but to go for a meal to Relish and after the meal there was music in the pub down stairs. Meal was fab and it was very good value. A great night had by all.

“Delish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Ate here on a recent trip to Portlaoise. Lovely setting, informal and chilled, feels like your in someones kitchen!The food was beautiful, I had a range of starters - chicken wings, bruschetta and garlic mushrooms, OH had a burger, everything was really tasty. We shared the brownie for desert, it was yummy and really rich. There was a boozy orange hot chocolate on the menu which I had decided on for desert the minute I spotted it on the menu, but unfortunately the waitress was unable to use the new coffee machine to heat the milk... It would have been nice if she had just heated the milk up in a microwave but I guess for health and safety reasons she couldn't... Otherwise it was really nice and we will definitely go back next time we are in Portlaoise!
