Was looking for a local spot with good food, live music and casual dress and we found it. The Relish is conveniently located within walking distance of subway, the tapas food was plentiful, with good variety. The lobster potstickers were delicious, the staff were super friendly and welcoming, service was fast and the band was entertaining. Nice hidden gem:)

We love Relish and have eaten there on numerous occasions (as a couple or with friends) to listen to live music. The menu is tapas style and everything is fresh and tasty. Portions are pretty big so you don't need to overdo it. Love the grilled calamari, white bean duck and chorizo casserole, any of their fresh soups and lobster... More

I have been to this restaurant many times over the past few years. The food is always delicious. It's a tapas menu, so I get to try several different dishes each time. The lamb empanadas are so good! I have never had one I didn't like (except for the Nutella cheesecake - it was horrible). I have gone with friends... More

I had so much fun at their karaoke night. Great crowd, wonderful drinks and funny baetenders. Also love tapas places. It's a great way to enjoy a bunch of different things without feeling like a pig lol. Oink.

Dropped by to listen to a friends band play live music. Ordered their Pita with dips, which was very plain. Side olives were quite tasty. Polished off with beer and their tasty appetizer ribs. Friendly service, decent food and great live music. What more can a man possibly ask for?

A small out of the way pub, with live music pretty much daily. Food was great selection of tapas and there was a great local band playing their own songs. Atmosphere was great and service was friendly.

Went to Relish to hear my friend's jazz styling, The Fixins. They are great. The food. Tapas is great to share and spread over a longer visit. I had the chorizo soup. The flavors were there but is was more soup than, liquid than I would have liked. I then had the mushroom risotto. Better than I can make so... More

I love the combo of indie tapas, indie craft beer and indie music -- great expression of craft passions and great to see them in combination, where food boosts local music and local music boosts local food and beer.

Staying in East York

Neighbourhood Profile
East York
East York includes a portion of old, industrial Toronto. Densely populated but incredibly safe, it boasts some of the city's earliest gardens and gardening clubs, attracting green thumbs everywhere. The tranquility of the Don Valley River area, which is rich with Toronto's oldest and tallest forests, is supplemented by the large ensemble of authentic and refurbished Edwardian homes, giving parts of East York allure. The other draw is for foodies: lovers of Bangladeshi fare will find authentic restaurants and markets in the area, with raw spices and desserts. East York also represents a lot of Toronto's Serbian food culture, and recently, has had an outcropping of solid microbrewery stops. For families, the science center is a favored weekend stop.
