We arrived after 12pm for lunch. I was disappointed with the lunch menu, which is a brunch menu. The majority of it is breakfast type food. We did have a dessert each which was delicious.

Well known for their desserts (which are amazing!), the entrées and mains at Strawberry Fair are just as amazing!! High quality food and a lot of gluten free options. Service is so good it puts other places to shame. They have more desserts on their menu than mains and the desserts are Devine. Chocolate options as well as fruity options.... More

A wondeful selection of desserts, just across from the corner of Hagley Park. Good service. Main courses are also available. The desserts are more pricey that normal (NZ $15-20) but a cut above normal restaurants fare.

This place has a very wide range of great deserts, my favourite is the lemon cheesecake, amongst others. Please do not get the tiramisu. Tiramisu is my favourite desert and this place cannot get it right, they are great at everything else but the tiramisu, so to avoid disappointment avoid tiramisu. Coffee is great too, vanilla late Is a must.... More

The most comprehensive, OTT, rich and beautiful dessert menu I've ever seen! Quite reasonable prices for the size and quality of the meals, definitely a great treat for a girls night. Not somewhere I'd recommend for an intimate, quiet evening out though. A very busy little place. All in all, I'd go back in a second! Yum.

Hubby and I went to Strawberry Fayre on our silver wedding. We had heard a lot about its desserts so decided to treat ourselves. We found the desserts to be mediocre, though the coffee was ok. We paid $45 for two desserts and two coffees and thought that this was a rip off. Don't think we'll be going back.

Last time I was at this restaurant it was pre-Christchurch earthquakes. Now in a new location which is very nice and has space for parking which is a plus. Meet a friend there for lunch had a table by the window, wasn't very busy so we could have a conversation without straining to hear. The service was good, the food... More

Food was excellent- very flavorful and fresh. Had the kokoda- like ceviche- delicious and so fresh! Also had the beet salad and warm fig pudding. Friend had the salmon salad- tasted and it's delicious, and the bread pudding- yum! Went early for dinner so no reservation needed, but might be an issue as it gets busier in evening. Service was...

Strawberry Fare was situated super close to our motel so we decided to go there. The menu looked decent, especially the dessert menu, so always a bonus. The place was nice enough and the service was extremely attentive and quite good. The mains we ordered were okay, but nothing mind blowing. If you're close by and a bit tired, it's... More
