We visited Robertson over December and I must say that Christina's was one of the highlights during our stay. The atmosphere and food was simply out of this world. We enjoyed an unforgettable Christmas lunch there and anyone that thought otherwise would have to be insane. I would highly recommend this Bistro and they will definitely see me and my... More

We had breakfast in the outside area and the food and service was great. The gardens are beautiful and I can recommend a glass of their champagne.

Christina's is situated in the gardens at Van Loveren which are fantastic. We couldn't get a table outside but the bistro opens up into the garden and was very comfortable on a hot summers day. The food was very good and would recommend the burgers!

What a beautiful setting and a friendly accommodating service. Our 6 year old said it was his best spaghetti ever ☺.

Traditional mixed with upmarket modern setting. Fast friendly service, fantastic views. Possibly the best visitor our journey. Paring of wines and herself or wines and chocolate made this a afternoon to remember

We arrived in the Robertson area at around midday and were so fortunate to stumble on this bistro. The pizza was one of the best I enjoyed in 2016 (Oh, the anchovies!) and the salad we chose was also really wonderful. The setting was so peaceful - plants, flowers and birds. Their modestly priced Van Loveren Chardonnay was enjoyable too.... More

We enjoyed our lunch at Christina's. We were a large group (20 people) and everything went smoothly. Food was delicious, wine was tasty and very inexpensive. Highly recommended.

Description
The place to lunch in the Robertson Valley if you love Thin-crust wood-fired gourmet pizzas, award winning burgers, great food made to order from fresh local seasonal produce. Located within the lush gardens of the Van Loveren Estate, child and pet friendly seating under the vine-covered pergola, or inside the old Manor House with french doors opening up into the gardens. Also open on Sundays when local musicians set the tone for a laid back afternoon!
