Where do you go to find the freshest ingredients in the city? Strawberry Fare.

It’s a great place to come and have dinner with friends, family or colleagues. There are wonderful views over Hagley Park not to mention an abundance of natural light.

Fresh produce cooked well means a very tasty plate! Begin with something punchy like their House-cured Salmon Gravlax, Duck Confit Hash or perhaps go for Beetroot and Falafel Salad.

For mains get stuck in with their Slow-cooked Lamb Pappardelle, Daily Fish with herb and lemon mash or the delicious Pea and Lemon Risotto.

Finish off your meal with one of Strawberry Fare’s amazing desserts – the chef’s tasting plate, Bombe Alaska or Chocolate Devil's Dream.

Excellent food, loved the truffle mash and the steak was perfectly cooked. The dessert was just divine, really enjoyed everything.

All three of us enjoyed our lunch mains of Caesar Salad, Eggs Benedict and Simply Salmon. Strawberry Pillows was delicious as was the Caramel and Hazelnut Torte. Excellent coffees too. Attentive helpful service throughout our relaxing long lunch..thank-you to all staff ..you made our visit so pleasant.

Strawberry Fare didn't fail to disappoint or live up to the hype! It was a great experience in terms of both food and service. The waitresses were great and one of them asked whether we were there for a special occasion (we were, it was a birthday dinner). Then when our dessert came out, it came with a candle and a birthday message!

First time dining here and we had lunch. Absolutely amazing! I had the duck confit hash, a surprisingly perfect meal for brunch. Slow cooked pulled duck and potato hash, fried egg, salad greens and jus, aioli. Amazing! My husband has his eggs bene and he said the ham is so fresh and can easily have another main meal but we opt for the chef trio dessert. Gorgeous plate! The combination of 3 desserts are well thought esp with a lemon sorbet, perfect to clean your palate. Will be coming back here!!

Had a wonderful birthday lunch with my husband. I had the salmon which came with a yummy salad and the bombe Alaska which the kitchen had decorated with happy birthday, it was amazing. My husband had a caesar salad and the cheesecake which looked great and tasted better. The service was great, so friendly. Thanks for making my Birthday special.

The staff are so welcoming and friendly. Just love this place. Had my favourite.. raw fish and a side of roast potatoes!! Interesting mix.. soo good, followed by a big sticky date dessert.. my friends tickled their tastebuds with a duck dish and a classic Strawberryfare desert too. A great meal out. Good parking at this time too

I was most impressed with Strawberry Fare. The quality of the food was excellent and the service was great. The servings of food were generous and the quality did not go down through having the food at a heavily discounted rate. We had a lovely view over looking Hagley Park.

- dined at Strawberry Fare on

We had a great meal here and introduced our 11 and 13 year olds to strawberry fare for the first time, despite the fussiness of our youngest who wanted the steak on a plate separate to everything else we all loved our meals, the steak was beautifully cooked, portions a perfect size, desserts were of course superb, the 13 year old was beaten by the chocolate platter, but has serious friend envy after posting pictures of her dessert all over social media, my tasting platter of 3 desserts was the perfect end to the meal- creme brûlée, cheesecake and white and dark chocolate cake provided a taste of 3 different choices

- dined at Strawberry Fare on

We had a lovely evening at Strawberry Fare. The food was absolutely delicious and the portion sizes were generous - one of our group had the salmon off the 'light meals' part of the menu but it was the size of a regular main! The lamb in the lamb ragu was so tender it was falling apart and the pasta was cooked perfectly. The highlight of the night, though, was the desserts. They were stunningly presented with shards of chocolate and spun toffee balanced on top (if you want to take a nice picture for Instagram then this is definitely the place to go!) The dessert portions were huge and I could barely finish mine so I would suggest sharing a dessert unless you have a real sweet tooth.

The waffles, cinnamon roll french toast, and thyme roasted potatoes were very tasty. The coffee was great and the service was excellent. Our table was by the window with a lovely view of the corner Hagley Park! The atmosphere in the restaurant was also very pleasant. I would not hesitate to recommend breakfast at Strawberry Fare to any of my family and friends.

My friend and I had a fabulous meal at Strawberry Fare yesterday. The service was impeccable and the food outstandingly delicious! We had a lovely table by the window, with lovely views of Hagley Park. We were treated so well. It was a belated birthday lunch with a friend I hadn't seen for a while and I thank you for looking after us so well. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful meal and dessert! We had the Turkey Salad and also the Fish of The Day, both were amazing! Thank you again! We will most definitely "spread the word" that Strawberry Fare is not to be missed!

Simply the best restaurant in Christchurch! Always great service, amazing food.

First time back in years, and disappointed we hadn't returned sooner. The service is impeccable and the food was exceptional. We had the baguette and prawns to start with which were both delicious. We both had the fillet steak and both were cooked as we had requested - one of the only places I've been that provided a genuinely rare steak for me. The dessert is what they are famous for, and we splashed out with a dessert each. We had the ultimate chocolate plate and the hazelnut and caramel torte. They were both so well done. The chocolate was probably too much chocolate for us, but that was what the dish was about, so not a criticism. The torte was just perfection. We would change nothing about the night. The atmosphere was also enjoyable. We were the fifth table upon arrival, and leaving the restaurant was full (on a Tuesday)! Highly recommended, we look forward to returning.

The only thing I could fault Strawberry Fare with is that I couldn’t resist but eat too much! The food was amazing! Service was friendly and the food came out so quickly, which is always appreciated when you are eating with young children. My four year old is still raving on about her delicious steak and wasn’t even able to finish her ice cream because she was so full... which was my cue to try and eat her dessert as well. Overall, the whole family thoroughly enjoyed our time there and I am very much craving the warmed raspberry drenched chocolate cake.

We had a lovely time - good food and service. The food was 'simple' in that my steak was served with just two vegetables - potatoes and asparagus. (I always like an orange/red vegetable to add a colour!) The desserts were delicious - but I would not like to pay the full price for either the mains or dessert so thank you First Table for another chance to enjoy another restaurant at a 'sensible' price!
Season's Greetings to all your readers and staff, Joy (and David) Wickham The Newly weds!! We used our Wedding Gift Voucher for the meal.

Was a great dining experience food was delishes had waffles with bacon banana and maple syrup only suggestion would be caramelized banana instead of fresh and softened butter.

Our first experience at Strawberry Fare was terrific.

Top tip: arrive with an empty stomach and elasticised pants!

Staff were friendly, good humoured, and provided great advice on strategies for tackling the desserts!

We wanted to enjoy a generous dessert each, so we shared an entree (Caprese Salad) and a side (Beans with Gremolata) and skipped the mains.
My husband had the Sticky Date Pudding. I had the Ultimate Chocolate Dessert.

Even though the entree and side were delicious and fresh, we started to regret eating them first as the desserts were rather generously sized. But we took our time and polished our plates as everything was so delicious.

My husband found the caramel sauce a tad sickly towards the end as he became more full. My dessert was beautifully presented, had a wonderful range of textures and flavours, and I definitely will order it again.
