The portions are on the large size so would advise sharing deserts. Nice setting but would say if you purchase wine the bill will be on the high side

Loved the chef's selection. It was beautifully presented and tasted divine. It maintains its reputation as one of the best dessert places in Christchurch. Would go back again for more.

I usually end my Friday or Saturday dinner at Strawberry fare. I have been here several times to enjoy the delicious desserts that they prepare and so far they never disappoint. Prices seems expensive for desserts from 18 to 20 dollars but the serving size is very generous so you can feed two people. I recommend the chef's tasting plates,... More

However there is not alot of parking and be advised that you will have to park up the street. Having said that we were seated very quickly and had our drinks order attended to promptly. We did have to wait a wee... More

the staff were very polite and lovely, the food was really lovely, we ate twice here breakfast and dinner. Loved there gluten free sausages and our steak was perfect and we haven't had many perfect steaks. I would definately recommend this restaurant.

Strawberry Fare is a ChCh classic and I'd eaten there many times in their original location. $17.50 too much for a slice of cake. Nice as it was. 25 min too long to wait for very basic plating.

I was part of a group of around 25 ladies who had lunch on the 2nd April. Staff very attentive and helpful. I ordered Simply Salmon - beautiful piece of warm smoked salmon served with ciabata bread, cream fraiche and an apple slaw. Loved it. I thought the staff did a great job of getting all of the meals out... More
