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.

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,...More
