The people are super-friendly and whilst the food is simple, it is of very good quality typical of the mountain region (see the various photos). They also have a wonderfully friendly collie dog called Jessie who has the rather odd habit of chewing rocks (yes, stones) and she insists on following you on your walk around/up/down the various pistes. For me there were, however, 2 negative points. Firstly, the food is so abundant that it is frankly impossible to finish it all - and the sheer quantity is somewhat overwhelming for people with a "normal" appetite, and all 5 tables that were occupied when we dined left large quantities of food which makes me wonder how much goes to waste during the year!! Secondly, there were just too many flies around. Having to constantly swipe them off the food was not enjoyable. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a prude, but there must have been 20+ flies in the restaurant, which surely could have been avoided. The restaurant itself is however only part of the story, as the views from it and the journey to it from Grasse are stupendous with breathtaking vistas of the surrounding countryside. I've attached a few photos of that too, and will try to find another opportunity in Tripadvisor to review the journey with more photos. You simply have to mix in one of the many rambles/randonnees in the area with lunch at Christiana, and that makes a perfect combination.

One of the best and most unexpectedly great meals i had in a long time

45 minutes from Grasse........a long and winding road brilliant views amazing valley....why doesnt someone host a summer poo festival in this natural amphi theatre

Menu changes daily....always a good sign start with deserts, the rasberry tart was astounding exploded in the mouth

Take tge advice of the owner one of the cheeses he said was disgusting.......take his word for it!!!!! The rest brilliant

The chicken in locally cooked seps was fab and the starters fantastic

5 of us rolled out like butchers dogs whole meal for 5 with wine €133 !!!!!so nothing to whine about see pics

Loved the St Bernard, the tractor , the yurts and the food

Take the drive

What more can you say! Spectacular drive up from Montauroux, where we stay with my sister-in-law! This restaurant is without question one of my favourite's. The whole menu is superb and worth the effort aslong as the road is open! Beautiful Alpine setting, with Ski lifts outside their back door.
Suggest you go when you are close to starving for a fabulous, long, lazy lunch!

This is a delightful resturant serving wonderful homecooked food. Everything from the starter to the desserts was simply delicious. Portions are generous and the house wine was excellent. Service is excellent with a warm, friendly atmosphere. It is excellent value for money. If you are in the area don't miss it.
