We dropped in by chance, had a wonderful main course and topped it by incredible, outstanding desserts. We would go back there only for them. Really great! Tasty, well presented, just a delight.

We had the Salmon gravlax and creamy prawns followed by the slow cooked duck and would recommend all of it. So delicious. The duck was perfectly salty and tender and I could not fault the meal.

It was not a fancy restaurant, no table cloth, in fact when our two tables put together, there was one higher than the other, but it was ok as long as we could sit in a quiet corner downstairs. Our share plates of pate and entree were very nice. All our mains were delicious too. We also shared two lovely... More

We ate twice at Strawberry Fare over the New Year holidays. The setting is informal and friendly. We had a Caprese salad at lunch, and it was so tasty that we returned several days later for a salmon dinner. The cheerful and energetic manager seemed to do everything from bringing plates up and down the stairs to receiving payment to... More

We always bring our school Student Council to this restaurant for breakfast at the end of the year. They're always incredibly accommodating and helpful with bookings and orders. The food is never anything short of exceptional as well. It's a chch institution!

My wife and I and two friends dined at Strawberry Fare New Years Eve. When we booked we asked for a window seat so that we could look at Hagley Park. They seated us at a window seat facing the stark wall of a motel, we asked why but just got a "sorry" from the waitress. The evening got steadily... More

This is a fantastic place for desserts, we tried the chef's platter which had a slightly bitter cake; a creme caramel and a light and refreshing sorbet

We decided to have new year's dinner here and I had the duck confit as my main.. It was overcooked and it taste bitter.. When the dish was being served we even asked for cutleries knowing that the waitress keeps on coming back to our side.. But on the other side, the dessert was awesome.. We have the tasting platers...
