Fabulous service, food excellent especially Berry Pillows for dessert in the summer. Yummy indeed. Have tried other desserts too which are all excellent but always go for Berry Pillows in season.

Sunday night on a whim, we have decided to go out for dinner and on a " why don't we try something new" , ended up in Strawberry Fare. It did not disappoint.. We have enjoyed our dinner very much. Since I had an entree I was unable to finish my main of risotto. Everyone is very friendly, smiles all... More

Had a lovely breakfast there in a lovely warm restaurant on a cold day. We may have been the only diners but the service was excellent. Had wondered where it had moved to after the quakes! Would certainly go again. An extensive menu with something for everyone

This was one of the original dessert restaurants, then it branched out into main courses, and the whole menu. I hear that you can't just go for dessert any more, which, if true, is a shame. I also found it pricey compared with other places in town, and didn't feel you got the service, ambience or food to back it... More

I have recently enjoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner at Strawberry Fare. I am never disappointed. It is always good .The service is good, food delicious, and a good central spot to meet friends, so if thinking about going - just do it!

This place was recommended by our motel owner as having the best desserts in town, along with excellent New Zealand cuisine. Listening to local knowledge, we ventured one evening for a dinner and dessert service. Even though the food was yummy, it looked like it was mainly for desserts. There were people who had reserved places, just to have desserts,... More

Have been to Strawberry fare many times, go after most meals out in Christchurch! I am boring and always have the caramel hazelnut torte.....but it's incredible. Very odd experience there recently though. When my desert was received I found that the icecream that comes with the tart was a scoop of ice....obviously the icecream had been allowed to melt and...

Dined here last night, the restaurant was very busy, meal was exceptional, most of us tried the beef fillet or fish of the day, all very happy with presentation and most importantly taste. "They nailed the beef fillet." Well done to the team we cant see in the kitchen. Drinks were a little slow but we had a lovely waitress... More

We have eaten at Strawberry Fare many times now and the food is always SO delicious... Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner - you can't go wrong. The service is a bit "hit and miss" sometimes very efficient and friendly but sometimes not. The food is consistently good though and I will keep going back!
