I enjoyed the surroundings and setting overlooking the park upstairs. Although the stairs were very steep, not really suitable for the elderly. Breakfast was ok but not overly big. Didn't like the seeded toast much. Came away still hungry. The pancakes that others had looked quite good with the blueberries. Wouldn't rush back.

Lovely restaurant which I have been to before for dinner. This time we went for breakfast and it was ok. I have a few intolerances so this limited what choice I had as most things have egg. The menu is very friendly for those who have gluten issues. The atmosphere was good and staff very pleasant. A good view out... More

We came in here for breakfast. The menu was expensive for what was on offer, more choice would have been nice. It was a little fancy in what was offered, it could have a classic menu as well offering things bacon rolls, egg rolls, etc. I had pancakes which were very filling and went well with the banana, bacon and...

We came here for dessert after dining elsewhere. Originally in another Christchurch location before the earthquakes, this was the first time I had visited for several years. Busy but we were able to sit at a pleasant "bar" overlooking the upstairs tables. The service was professionally attentive without being at all intrusive. My friend had Tiramisu which is one of...

If it's consistent dependability you're looking for in a restaurant, it would be difficult to beat Strawberry Fare. This has become a regular breakfasting place for us and we always find a warm welcome from staff, a relaxed atmosphere and top-quality food. My wife almost always goes for the delicious pancakes - light and fluffy in texture, with crispy bacon... More

This restaurant is close to Hagley Park. The menu is various and they also have great selection of local wine. I cannot remember the brand, but the sauvignon blanc they served is really worth to try. I had smoke salmon for the appetizer and local steak for the main course. The ingredients were fresh and the taste met the standard... More

This was right night door to my accommodation and being a Solo traveller, I found it very comfortable to be eating alone. Also friendly service.
