Relaxed burgers

I stop here all the time when passing through with cycling groups. The friendly and efficient staff are a delite to be served by. The relaxed atmosphere on the porch and under the vines goes down very well. Just a hint of warning, the place is always well booked over a weekend, so call ahead to... read more

Great setting in the garden under the trees bringing relief from the heat of the day. Do not expect gourmet fare. This is a bistro with a pub / casual style menu. My burger was better then most pubs and my real niggle was the wine list. I know its a wine estate but having even one beer available would... More

We visited the stunning Van Loveren Estate on a Sunday (one of the few such Wineries open on Sunday). Christina's is in the old Manor House and is beautifully converted with undercover and open-air tables. The staff are charming and helpful and the choice of food is excellent. We chose pizzas as they are made in the oven there and... More

The wine tasting and the grounds of this vineyard are amazing, but, oh! the staff at the restaurant are tired and dis-interested. The food is average and the experience was disappointing. We should have been content with the wine tasting.

When top service is not high on your priority list but just a day off to relax away from the stove, enjoy there special meal of the day or pizza. My hubby also likes their burgers.

The food is surprisingly excellent. The menu is very limited but what they do, they do really, really well. The best pizza we have had since Italy. Steak is always a winner. Book! This place is popular. Great for kids because of the garden.

We could have stayed all day and all night. Van Loeverens is a real treat and Christina's passed all expectations. We ate great pizza, salads and platters with the best of wines. Would have returned a 100 times if we could.

Van Loveren has spent good money on investing in a great facility. This is a place in a lovely, scenic garden setting with a rare combination of good service and great food. The Van Loveren wines are more than affordable and combine excellently with the food on a rather expansive menu. The pizzas are also great, although this place in... More

After a very bad experience at this restaurant some time ago we decided it was a lost case and did not return for ever so long! We so missed our leisurely lunches in a heavenly environment and decided to return a couple of days ago. How happy we were to find that Christina's had returned to being a fabulous venue... More

We were so pleasantly surprised by the food quality at Christinas, with it being on a wine farm you often get overpriced meals that leave you feeling a bit ripped off - but this was not the case with Christinas - the salads were loaded with Salmon, and the flavors & combinations were incredible. Service was great and all and... More
