Went there last month with my partner... We had a sumptuous dinner and he was quite delighted with the food:) I have tried breakfast, dinner and desserts at this place and I would say they are really good place to dine if you plan to visit christchurch and staying within Cbd. They are best for their desserts for me...

Visited this restaurant before Christmas with a group of friends. I ordered a chicken salad and it was dry and lacking flavour. For $23 it was very disappointing. The dessert however, which was a rich chocolate and raspberry torte type cake was divine. It is a shame that the mains let this meal down. The atmosphere was nice and airy... More

Not only the best desserts I've ever seen in a restaurant, but the Groper main meal was outstanding! Pricing was good compared to other restaurants in NZ of far lesser quality. Don't miss out - book this restaurant on your arrival in Christchurch.

Strawberry Fare was one of the first more upmarket restaurants to get back up and running after the earthquake. It came back better than ever. Whereas it used to be more of a dessert only restaurant (with the mains being alright) I now consider it to be the best place for eye fillet steak in town. Restaurants such as Saggio... More

Myself and my partner came here for breakfast on New Year's Day. Luckily the restaurant was open as we were just visiting Christchurch over new year (when most other places were shut!) We ordered the big breakfast and French toast. The food was delicious, nicely presented and good value for money - no surcharge too. Would definitely recommend for dessert... More

My family and I had dinner here last night - a wonderful evening with top class food, including of course amazing desserts, which this restaurant is renowned for! I had a warm chicken salad and the chefs special dessert which comprised a trio of sticky date pudding, creme brûlée and New York cheesecake - everything beautifully presented and flavours out...
