Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Visited Relish with my wife for a coffee. We were seated inside at one of 3 occupied tables. We waited for some time and as no one came to take our order, I went to the counter and ordered 1 coffee, 1 tea and 1..."Italian Job" a ham and chees sandwich. I was asked to pay in advance. After a while a waiter brought the tea and coffee and served them at a different table, after some confusion, he then moved them to our table. Not great in the current climate. My wife had to go to the counter to get a spoon, then she had to go back to get serviettes. I asked for milk, then I had to go to the counter and get sugar. Eventually the waiter returned and asked if we ordered a smoothie, no we did not. Then he returned again and placed 2 sandwiches on our table, neither was for us and he removed to another table. Our sandwich arrived and we had to ask for a knife and fork. Coffee was cold at this stage and we couldn't wait to get out of there. Never going back to Relish, it was a shambles.More

I have always liked Relish and have continued to support this restaurant during the pandemic. I find the owner very helpful when it comes to special diets and the prices very reasonable. In the catering business you can't please everyone so have read some negative...reviews. These were mainly due to a number of staff changes owing to lockdown but now the staffing problem has been addressed future reviews should be positive. I personally have never had cause for complaint and will continue to eat at this bright cheerful cafe cum restaurant in the future.More

Went here after the bray to greystones walk. Sat outside with the beautiful weather. Was pleasantly surprised with the food. Good menu choice. Had the pancakes and the mango smoothie. Very tasty. Smoothie coud have been a bit bigger for the price. Would recommend and...if I'm in area again will visitMore

Having been a regular diner at this cafe where the food was always excellent, I was very disappointed with my visit today. There was no organization whatsoever, the music was far too loud and the food was cold and unappetitizing. First I had to ask...the young girl to turn the awful loud music down which she did without any problem. Then the tea arrived way before the meal and was cold by the time the food arrived. I had to ask the young girl for another pot of tea. The plate of pancakes which I was looking forward to were completely cold as was the plate inself. They were not the usual pancakes but some factory-made rubbish which tasted like cardboard. The presentation of the food was very bad and the service was so slow it was pathetic. It was not as if they busy as there were very few customers both inside and outside. The staff was poorly trained and had no idea how to run a cafe. I am a regular diner at this cafe and have always given in 5 stars in the past. The only reason I am giving it two stars today is that he staff though completely incompetent were nice and polite throughout. Based on the meal I had today I could not in all honesty recommend this cafe. If the owner wishes to continue with this cafe he needs to get proper staff and put somebody capable in charge. Otherwise he will lose all his loyal customers.More

This is one of my favourite cafes on the East Coast of Ireland. Set in the beautiful village of Greystones, Co. Wicklow, this delightful cafe is situated very close to the rail station and easily accessible. Top quality food is prepared daily using only the...finest fresh ingredients. The staff are efficient, friendly and helpful. During the pandemic, I have had take-away food and outside service but now look forward to being able to sit inside and enjoy my food. Would highly recommend this eating establishmentMore

Music blaring, horrible coffee, ignored at the counter while staff chatted. Got a face made at me when I asked them to turn the music down. Plates weren’t clean. Try Eleven Deli further up the street

I have been a regular customer at Relish since it opened and have enjoyed every meal I ate there. Since the onset of the pandemic I have been getting take-away food which is excellent. I love Relish as their menu is different and unusual. The...staff have always been very nice to me and i have no complaints with this eating establishment whatsoever.More

Had breakfast here last week. Like other reviewers have mentioned, this place looks quite enticing from the outside, the staff are friendly enough and there is a hipster vibe inside. I did find the food to be slightly underwhelming for the price. I ordered a...bowl of granola but the bulk of it was natural yogurt. Having stayed in Greystones for 3 days nights and tried two other places, there are certainly better places for breakfast at least in this town.More

I love dining at Relish as the food is always so fresh. I missed them for the short period of time they were closed because of the pandemic. I am so pleased that they are once more open and taking all the precautions necessary to...keep their diners safe. I have eaten there both with friends and alone in recent weeks and on each occasion the food, the service and the cleanliness were excellent. I particularly like their pancakes which are served with fresh fruit compote and a side portion of extra fruit plus some maple syrup.More

From the outside Relish looks like a lovely place to eat. The menu also looks good. Unfortunately, the reality was a little different. The food was average given the price of it. I was really looking forward to my Lebanese wrap which was average for...9.95, a little garnish wouldn't have gone astray. My other half said his chicken sambo was tasty, again though no garnish for the same price. We were asked if we'd like cutlery/napkins when our food arrived & we had to ask for our drinks again. The waitress appeared annoyed at the request & dropped it at the table minutes later not uttering a word. I would have forgiven had it been busy however, it was very quiet & there were 3 servers that I could see. I wouldn't be rushing back.More

I am a regular diner in Relish and I have missed it so much during the pandemic crisis. I hope to rectify that this week by returning for lunch. The food is always very freshly made and the cafe is spotlessly clean. It is also...bright and cheerful and the staff are very nice. Everything I want in a cafe cum restaurantMore

The service was just awful, our order was taken at a dirty table which we had to ask to wiped down once they finally removed the dirty dishes. The server didn’t seem to care and didn’t bring us cutlery. The food was very poor, one...of the worst meals I ever ate. We had all our food finished with only one portion of chips served to us even though we had asked for 6 portions. We ended up leaving the rest of the chip portions behind us.More

6 of us went in for food. Sat at a dirty table for 20 minutes without cleaning and room our order without cleaning the table. We had to ask then to wipe down the table. The burger was dry and awful and the lasagne wasceey...small for 10 euro. The pancakes where cold and arrives 10 minutes after the other food. We had to ask for cutlery twice and water. Worst of all we al ordered chips and had had our other food eaten before they came so we cancelled them. Terrible service and food.More
