We just stayed in the restaurant for a coffee (CHF 4.50) and a beer (CHF 5.60). Service was slow and unfriendly. Some people even did not understand german. Location is very good next to Gstaad train station and Coop.

Had a fantastic experience at the restaurant! Very cosy. Food was delicious and the bamia made me nostalgic...! The most impressive aspect is definitely the service; the owner is so kind and accommodating without being "pushy". We had two infants with us and unlike many restaurants was made to feel very welcome! Definitely coming back, if not only for the... More

We went for lunch on a quiet day, and found the chalet style interior comfortable, the staff friendly and welcoming and the service exemplary. I had the delicious pan-fried filet of sole, and I would certainly pay another visit to this restaurant to try out other dishes on the menu.

The exterior of Christiana is not that inviting - but don't be put off!! It's well worth a visit to sample the fine fare, lovingly prepared ' family style'. It's comfortable, unpretentious and simply delicious foods. The platters are massive and seem to keep coming, well after you have eaten your fill. A great, down to earth place to eat... More

The falafel, hummus, tabbouleh & harisa sauce were delicious! The phulesh was the highlight, tasty and filling and sumptuous. The kids had a great time too,..the staff was prompt, warm and courteous! U need a chain of this restaurant in all of Switzerland : ))

I can not say I was pleasantly surprised somehow, or super happy. The service was attentive. Croute fromage was a half smaller than normal size but at the same price as elsewhere. Taste common, good. Shrimp salad average. What cheered me up was a pancake with white chocolate, ice cream and warm chocolate sauce. It was very good.

My family and I ate at the Christiania Hotel Restaurant for lunch while visiting Gstaad in the summer of 2014. The meal was quite good, with traditional Swiss offerings. I was a bit confused when reading the prior reviews because of the Lebanese menu references, but I triple-checked and this is the same restaurant. So, either they have changed the... More

There aren't many restaurants in Gstaad. After spending a year or so there on business and having to eat out 2-3 times a day, I have to say that most of them get a bit tiring after a while (especially as most of them serve the same type of cuisine). While I would never call this hotel restaurant a great... More

You dont expect middle eastern food in Gstaad. This is hearty home made fare in a rustic setting. Worth a try if want good but not fancy food.
