“Good food but pricey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014

Lovely restaurant which I have been to before for dinner. This time we went for breakfast and it was ok. I have a few intolerances so this limited what choice I had as most things have egg. The menu is very friendly for those who have gluten issues. The atmosphere was good and staff very pleasant. A good view out of the window and easy to park also. For those who like desert there is a massive menu for this which looked pretty good.

“Nice food, well presented!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014 via mobile

We came in here for breakfast. The menu was expensive for what was on offer, more choice would have been nice. It was a little fancy in what was offered, it could have a classic menu as well offering things bacon rolls, egg rolls, etc. I had pancakes which were very filling and went well with the banana, bacon and maple syrup. Nice food but a little pricey!

“Dessert supree”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

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 his usual requests and was highly complimentary about it. I ordered the "Velvet Pillows" - banana slices with masses of whipped cream between two divinely soft light sponges and surrounded with a caramelly orange sauce. A shame I had previously had 2 courses elsewhere because this was so generous and delicious that the "food babies" were overindulged. Strawberry Fare began as a dessert place and it clearly is continuing its tradition well. Recommended unless you really are on a diet.
