We stumbled across this restaurant and had a fabulous starter then our main courses. Little did we realise at the time, that this was the best pudding restaurant in NZ and disappointingly could't actually order one as we were full from our starters and mains...how annoying. Others customers came in and only ordered deserts..and it was clear to see why,... More

Great place to go when you feel like something sweet to finish the evening off. Friendly atmosphere and fast service. Coffee was not particularly good but the dessert made up for it.

We stopped by this unassuming restaurant, and were very pleased with our experience. Two people could easily dine here for dinner with drinks for 80-100 nzd, and it was worth it! The pea risotto was fantastic! Call for a reservation or go on their website (even the day of) and this will assure a 2nd floor table, looking out over... More

It's not our first time at Strawberry Fare but they are definitely the most consistent with the excellence of the food. It's always been delicious and spot on each time. The duck confit and beef fillet..... highly recommended! Banana pillows or strawberry pillows in summer is always a winner. We were celebrating a significant birthday and the staff brought out...

We read in other reviews that you could just go for desert so we did. The have a whole page for the desert section so that makes sense. It was Friday night around 7 without a booking, it was crowded but we still got a table. I had the Chef's selection with 3 different deserts from the menu. I highly... More

We just wanted a quick dessert and heard about Strawberry Fare from the owner of the motel we were staying at. What a great decision to walk two blocks to Strawberry Fare. The desserts are just unbelievable. Portions are huge and presentation superb. Take the time to find this place. They also served main courses, but we only had time... More

I popped in just to check out the dessert menu as i had heard some great comments about the desserts. Ordered one and requested the staff member to recommend the second one for a friend. He did so and after waiting a good 5 minutes or so my takeaway containers were ready to go. Presentation was excellent and at $17.90... More

Food tasted fresh and original flavour combinations. We had the duck confit hash which was a pleasant surprise and the salmon and avocado salsa was flavourful. The Beetroot and falafel salad tasted fresh and clearly used locally grown ingredients. The location was easy to get to and the service was prompt. Staff were friendly but didn't give us a choice...
