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...

Their dessert is always perfect! I would die for their ultimate chocolate dessert.. Melting in my mouth and heaven for chocolate lover.. I've tried all of their desserts and my favourite is the ultimate chocolate dessert.

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.

Had dinner here last night - we knew the deserts would be fantastic so the test was in the main courses - the Duck and Beef were both delicious - we were impressed. The service was also excellent even though they were really busy - pity we aren't here for longer as I would be keen to go back.

Nice and classy venue, food is good, dessert is great! A bit on the expensive end, and parking can be a pain.

Called in for a drink on a sunny Sunday afternoon, it was very quiet in there, we were seated by the window. We just ordered 1 coffee and 1 glass of wine. The coffee was OK, but not hot enough or big enough, very small cups. The wine was OK for a house wine, but when we wanted to order... More

This is a restaurant that has been around for years, but still has the same quality . It started as a desert only restaurant - but has moved into high class meals too. If you are visitor to Christchurch you need to go there for their amazing deserts. You may think it's just another one of those boring chocolate desert... More
