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.

Had a beautiful breakfast at Strawberry Fare yesterday. The service was impeccable, the waitress who served us was very friendly and helpful. Food was absolutely delicious and presented beautifully. We were seated at the window at the front of the restaurant and had a picturesque view of Hagley Park which really made the setting. Thank you so much for an amazing meal. We hope to eat here again after the craziness of Covid 19, best of luck Strawberry Fare

We dined at Strawberry Fare as a birthday treat for our daughter. We trusted the reviews that SF is so much more than a desert restaurant. Every course was fantastic, and the deserts lived up to the name. We will be back! Thank you so much.

We had dined at this restaurant previously for lunch but not for dinner. I was surprised to see diners at other tables only ordering deserts only. They don't know what they were missing out on with the other courses on the menu - our table booked some sharing plates and some mains along with the absolutely beautiful deserts and the whole package was the best dining experience we have had in a very long time. We'll done to the table staff and the chefs.

DISCLAIMER: before heading out to Strawberry Fare for dinner last night, I spent half an hour on Instagram scrolling through all of the food tagged at Strawberry Fare. By the end of my internet dive, I was unbelievably excited (and hungry!) As soon as we were seated in the restaurant, I told my husband: "I'm ordering for us!" He gave me the look, and I ended up ordering for us anyway. We both had the Beef Fillet as our mains and the Salted Caramel and Dark Chocolate Mousse Gateaux to share for dessert. In simple terms, we were in food heaven. Literally every mouthful from the beef fillet to the mousse gateaux, melted as soon as we placed it in our mouths - so so SO delicious! 120/100

One of the best dessert restaurants in town. The meals were tasty, the service was great and the staff were friendly. We went there to celebrate my birthday. We had dessert there too and what we didn't expect was they decorated the dessert plate with" happy birthday". What a nice surprise to me. Would happily recommend.

We had an amazing dining experience at Strawberry Fare. My husband and daughter agreed with me as they enjoyed their meals as much as I did. The desserts were equally as good as the mains and we can't really fault the food and service.

Absolutely beautiful evening! Food was delicious and the service was lovely. All the food was incredible but the highlights were the two desserts (the sunken chocolate cake and the pineapple feijoa pudding). Lovely atmosphere and view over the park from the restaurant. Probably my favourite restaurant in Christchurch, thanks for the lovely evening!

Had a great time, food was great. Portion size was massive we shared 3 share plates and a side and were stuffed. The bombe Alaska was to die for but again massive portion size so make sure you save plenty of space for it. The service was great and all the waitresses were lovely. Good selection of beer and wine so had no trouble selecting something. Location was good, very central. Overall we were happy.

Delicious Dinner for 4 Adults
We opted to try as many dishes as possible and shared six starters and two deserts. Each bite was a delight and really set our tastebuds tingling. The flavours were fresh, perfectly seasoned and prepared with passion.
The service was friendly, welcoming and professional.
An evening we will remember with warm fuzzies and look forward to repeating.
Thank you to the whole team.

The four of us had a great time! Food was great, really liked going early before the whole place got packed at 6pm. Waitress was helpful asking the chef if a couple of the desserts contained raw egg (which I'm unable to eat). Meals were quite big and we were unable to finish everything - chefs choice dessert could easily be shared between two :) We'll be back again.

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!

- dined at Strawberry Fare on

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

- dined at Strawberry Fare on

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.

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

Jessica Gunby

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.

Julia Burdett-Clark

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.

A pleasant dining environment, with courteous prompt service and super food. I had the Pea Risotto which was visually appealing and tasted fabulous. I followed this with Berry Pillows for dessert. This was a nostalgic trip down memory lane. Great to see it still on the menu and every bit as good as I remembered.
