After trying a few of the newer, pretentious restaurants around town it was great to go back to Strawberry Fare where the food is always top notch and the service excellent. The only thing I could say as a negative and that was the plates could have been a bit warmer. The wine list is great and the prices not... More

Apparently this restaurant is famous for dessert when the waitress ask me I come for dinner or just dessert. Dinner serve nicely as well as their dessert, but I found that nobody just come here for dinner, they definitely will order dessert. Most of the dessert options are in chocolate flavor. I like the dessert more than dinner in this... More

Was out on a Friday night with my mum and we wanted something to eat before we headed to a show, she suggested we try here. We didn't have a reservation but we're lucky enough to score a table, even though the restaurant was packed. We didn't have much time so settled for just dessert instead of dinner. Wow, seriously...

One of the best desert places in Christchurch! The selection is to die for and the taste even better. Great location and atmosphere. They do a dinner menu but I have always just gone for desert. Pricing is $20 per desert but it is worth it!

Not sure if we just visited it on a particularly busy day but the service was a little rushed and not very attentive - food was OK. Will definitely return to try again, it was worth another visit as it came highly recommended from friends. Will review once revisited....

Friendly staff and delicious food. I wish I'd saved more room for more desert! Only bummer is there's not enough parks... Staff helped carry my pram upstairs, so they are also kid friendly.

Amazing desserts, average/good mains - but you don't want to fill up! Just go for desserts :) Lovely atmosphere, and excellent waiters when we visited.

Strawberry Fare is a ;pleasant restaurant with a well balanced menu and a small but adequate wine list. I have enjoyed several meals there with family and friends. Prices are reasonable and the meals are excellent \. would;,recommend it as a medim standard restaurant without pretention. a good place to relax and enjoy a well constructed meal

Fabulous puddings - thats about all I can say about this place. Didnt have a meal just went for afternoon tea and it was absolutely delicious! Really unusual dishes and a very generous size - we pretty much rolled out of there. Very yummy!

My tiramisu was delightful. The braised beef rib superb. Service efficient and friendly. Just a few vegies ( on the plate -not an extra ) would have been real value for money.
