Without a doubt REL's is the best kept secret, I've never had a bad meal and the service is impeccable even when they are maxxed out. The beef tournados, the crab cakes, bourbon chicken, pot roast, ozzo bucco. Just bring your appetite and enjoy.
This is the best place to eat in Franklin! Ranks up there with Wolfgang's in Highlands. We eat at allot of places in Charleston, SC and this is better then some of their finest.
As in all public places, if you have small children that can not be still for 45-60 minutes go to McDonalds until they are older. Also, if you want to spend an extra 30 minutes after you are finished eating talking be more considerate of the owner and people waiting for a table.
Richard, owner chef, is a great guy and serves a great meal. A must stop for great food at reasonable prices.
This was the best meal that I have ever had in this area. I had the mixed grill which had three different sauces, everyone great. My husband had the freshest tastiest trout, and to top it off we had the best chocolate cake. My friends and I were so thrilled that we found this restaurant. We traveled 1 hour to this location, and it was worth the trip.
Truly one of the best restaurants ever! My children and I eat there every time we visit my mom and have always had excellent service and superior food. My favorite is the chef's Alfredo sauce, though every thing I've had has been phenomenal. I highly recommend this place for an excellent dining experience! The prices are very reasonable--there is something on the menu for every one's budget!
I no longer live in the town of Franklin. But everytime I return I make sure to dine at Caff-E Rel. Each and every dish on their menu is delicious. Your only risk is that you will become a repeat customer too. Bon Appetit.
Ahhh, just ate at Cafe Rel and still relishing the taste. Has anyone been to Paris and eaten at an outdoor cafe? I have eaten at several, some are frequented by working people and are very busy with excellent service albeit no nonsense, others are serving tourists and are also busy with excellent service. All have excellent food and service. The caliber of service in Europe is unlike what we have in the USA. Sadly, we Americans settle for much less in service. Cafe Rel is a delightful little touch of France right here in Franklin NC. Cafe Rel is all about the food which is excellent, and the staff is admirably efficient. I heartily recommend Cafe Rel as a different cultural experience and a lovely gastronomic delight.
This place was incredible! I went for a week's vacation to visit my folks and they took me to lunch. We ended up eating there for 3 meals, the rest at home. It was charming, the food was excellent and would love to go back again. I would recommend this place to anyone passing through or vacationing there.
