Always superb

you may have the perception that this is a dessert restaurant, but the mains are always excellent, and I often find I don't have room for the fabulous desserts! This doesn't have to be a tragedy however, as the tasting plate had little samples that are good to share

The desserts are large, generous sizes you can share among your group. Not many options without chocolate so I ordered the Velvet Pillows with which we ended very disappointed... too much cream, boring cake, little caramel sauce. The chocolatey desserts were varied in texture more than enticing to the palate. The presentation is flawless. The venue, used to celebrate birthdays,... More

Visited here myself when I was passing by Christchurch. It was for dessert but may I say the portion is quite generous. Ordered the Velvet Pillow and it was absolutely fluffy and nice. Though it is indeed on a much much sweeter scale, it was still delightful. The warm environment, the friendly staff, it was an enjoyable evening. =)

Large group of girls, lovely lunch venue, all found the bread which accompanied our lunches far too big and chunky.

Strawberry Fare is a fantastic opportunity to save a bit of cash eat at home and then come out for a fantastic dessert! They serve dinner but the few times we have had mains it has been ok but not fab for the price. It's also hard because of their desserts we had such high expectations because they are just... More

This is the best place for a special occasion. Everyone's meal was delicious, the desserts were out of this world and the service was very, very good. Warm sunny ambience, even on a cold day in winter.

Strawberry Fare was full last night , however it didn't take long for the waitress to find us a table and it was well worth it. The waitress was super friendly, and the service was spot on. Puddings a work of art. My new favourite CHCH restaurant .
