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.
