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!

As usual we were not disappointed when we visited Christian's last Sunday. It was very hot outside and the place was filling up very quickly. The service was great, and "The Anton" pizza's we had have to be the best pizza we've ever eaten, anywhere! If there was a small blemish it was perhaps the volume of the 'background' music. The live saxophone was good but a bit too loud for easy conversation at table.

We had a late lunch after a morning of wine tasting at Christina's. It was the middle of winter, we were the only guests at all the wineries we visited, and yet, even at three o'oclock on a weekday, this restaurant was fairly busy, which should tell you all you need to know! It seemed to be locals for the most part, and by the look of it, regulars, in case you're still uncertain.
Fantastic, thin and crispy based pizzas with original toppings and yummy burgers in a beautiful setting. Generous portions, great service and the best cappucinno we had in a very long time. All in all, a winner!

Christinas has recently opened. Their hamburgers and pizzas are different and a pleasure to eat. It is obvious that management are serious about giving their clients satisfaction. Service is excellent and managemant presence is obvious. We have been here 3 times and have seen the number of full tables inctreasing each visit. Word among the local Robertsoners is that it is the place for a good relaxing meal. A real compliment where mediocraty in an eating place is not accepted.

Hidden away in a lush tropical garden, you find Christina's a real gem of e restaurant. I had an excellent couscous salad with roasted veg a real winner. Looking at the rest of the menu, i will be back for more. The venue is fantastic setting, with a very laid back vibe, but with very good service. The wine's are excellent value for money and if you have the afternoon free...Highly recommended!!
