Down stairs seating is likened to a middle eastern street vendor

Dropped by for a meal with the wife, parking was appalling as all onsite is for the attached motel, ended up parking some distance away and walking in. On arrival was greeted by a spartan seating area with one poor couple (she was disabled) sitting there looking lost and a note saying to go up... read more

All I had heard about Strawberry Fare is their desserts are amazing. So I went along one night and booked for dinner and the food was exquisite. My beef fillet was cooked to perfection and literally melted in my mouth. The dessert that everyone has been raving about was scrumptious as well! Have since been back 3-4 times and will... More

We enjoyed a top class breakfast here, we had excellent service from our Romanian waitress and the surroundings were smart casual, to be highly recommended, including the very high standard of coffee, overall a ten out of ten experience.

This is a great place to go to finish the evening with a lovely Chocolate dessert. We had a great coffee and dessert. The desserts are a bit pricey but they are well worth the money. It was a nice end to a evening.

Love both the dinner & dessert menu here! Absolutely delicious, I couldn't pick a favourite as we have been so many times. Service is great when you first get there (they even ask if it is a special occasion) but follow ups after your food arrives would be good so that we can order more drinks!

This is the place for dessert lovers. They have variety choices of sweets like cakes and ice cream. Price is quite high, but i think it's reasonable ^^ TRy!!

Was told about the fab desserts on offer here so went with family and I have to say they are excellent. The only problem is deciding what one to have and they even have that sorted with an option to have a trio of smaller puds for you to try. The other meals are also excellent, the prawns I had...

Our first night in New Zealand and we wanted somewhere nice to eat. We weren't disappointed. Food, service, and ambience all excellent. As indeed was the view. One of the best Caesar salads I've ever eaten.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Food was excellent, expensive even for a lunchtime meal. Difficult access for people who have trouble climbing stairs. Staff were very helpful in this respect. Service was outstanding. Unfortunately no disabled access upstairs. Very nice atmosphere.

Enjoyed a mid-week lunch and good menu choice of sweet (dessert) and / or lunch style dishes. Food was tasty and presentation excellent. Service great from friendly waiting staff. Nice view overlooking Hagley Park. Would definitely return and recommend to others.
