Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The restaurant mucked up our booking and the owner was very rude. Very disappointed as have been a long time customer but she didn't care at all.

It was a special occasion dinner with my family. I booked it specifically for great deserts, which this place used to be famous for. Unfortunately the whole experience was just outrageously disappointing. We have waited for our main to be served for an hour, during...which time no one attended to our table. The food was absolutely average. Then we waited for another hour for our dessert, which never came, as it turned out an hour later that they have lost our order. Customer service was non-existent. The manager wasn’t apologetic whatsoever. The bill was way too much for that place, experience and lack of effort from staff. For that money we could go to high-dining and have a good meal, alcohol and desert that actually will be delivered. The worse thing was that they absolutely ruined a special occasion dinner for our family!More

My wife selected this place for dinner, as it was near us and had good reviews. It was clear they were great for desserts, so I wasn't sure if going for dinner was a good call. But in fact our main meals (fish of the...day and the beef) were absolutely first-class, as well as the decadent desserts that followed. We had a lovely view across to Hagley Park, and staff could not have been more welcoming, it was an excellent evening. Just be aware that dessert servings are very generous-you might consider sharing one.More

Excellent location with attentive service located near the botanical gardens. The service was great, and the cocktails were just as good. A variety of breakfast and lunch options to choose from you can't go wrong. The duck hash and fresh local fish were great. The...chefs selection of three mini deserts was (chefs kiss) exquisite.More

We had a group of 17 traveling from the U.S. and all enjoyed Strawberry Fare. I shared the Cesar salad with anchovies which was quite tasty but had a little too much dressing on it. My second shared dish was the duck hash which I...will give an average score. Other table mates raved about the mushroom risotto, the duck confit, the beef filet got a 9/10 score, the grilled turkey salad had excellent turkey meat and veggies and was a bit overdressed. And now for dessert talk, all of which were beautifully prepared. If you like lemon, you’ll enjoy the lemon sunshine. Multiple folks raved about the caramel and hazelnut torte, sunken chocolate cake and the chocolate mousse. Apparently the tiramisu was okay. Overall this large group was very happy with their dinner and dessert options and were pleased with the very attentive service. The staff were hustling to get our food out in a timely manner and couldn’t be any nicer to assist us with paying separately for this large group. This is a great restaurant and worth a visit.More

We had the pleasure of dining at Strawberry Fare last night at 6 pm. We had the experience of being served by the most efficient and pleasant young lady which added to our enjoyment of the most wonderful food. She even put a happy birthday...in chocolate on my plate with a candle. All and all a wonderful evening and looking forward to returning.More

Lovely atmosphere, excellent service and tasty food. We weren't able to go upstairs but the staff were super-attentive and obliging even though they needed to climb the stairs many times.

Delicious desserts and wonderful, friendly service. I highly recommend this for those special dessert nights! My husband ordered the chocolate cake with raspberry compote and we were surprised by the generous portion. I had the hazelnut torte that was also outstanding! Both desserts were also...served with yummy vanilla ice cream and whip cream!More
