After a tasting of their excellent wines and a walk around the lovely gardens we had Sunday lunch. The service was excellent (even though the restaurant was full). The food equally good.

As part of our reunion trip we landed up having lunch here. Staff were accommodating and arranged a large table for us. Service was great. Everyone of us could not fault the meal. Even the fussy "adult kids" licked the plates clean. They served the best fish dishes over our holiday. After our meal we went for a stroll in... More

We stopped by spontaneously for lunch. The salads were fantastic, as were the veggie and Mexican burger. The staff was very attentive. We sat outside in the shade. Only the constant humming of ACs was a bit bothersome.

Arrived in Robertson to find it buzzing and no place at our first-choice venue. We went on to Van Loveren and were so happy with everything! Sometimes it is best to let things happen freely... Food and service excellent.

We have stopped at Christina's for lunch on more than one occasion. The bistro looks over a sub-tropical garden, offering a peaceful, relaxing setting for lunch. The menu offers a good variety of dishes including some more unusual choices - I had a substantial and delicious Thai chicken tom yum style soup. Food quality is good and service attentive and...

Very ordinary, disappointing and over-priced fare in beautiful surroundings. Good friendly service but overall a bland and uninteresting experience.

Beautiful setting for sunday lunch or snacks. Too many coach parties which slowed the service but staff very friendly and quick to resolve problems.

We were a bit worried that this would be a coach tour restaurant but the focaccia pizza was excellent, and so was the Mexican burger - accompanied by their own wines, of course. Great service, very good value.

Despite us arriving at the restaurant with a busload of tourists, we had a dedicated waitress and our drink and food came without any delay. The lunch menu is varied and interesting, although relatively pricey, but the wine is very reasonably priced. OUr meat dish had a liberal helping of two venisons, but the vegetables offered were limited. However, the... More

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!
