This is the less formal bar/ restaurant at the front of the hotel and seemed to have more atmosphere than the main restaurant.  Well decorated.  Busy.  Extremelyji expensive (even for Gstaad), but I did have the best veal chop I have ever had.  Service good and quite formal for a "bar", but is is Gstaad...    Had a very enjoyable evening.

Good Location in the heart of gstaad one of the staples of the promenade. The interior is traditional swiss chalet like. Very nice wine selection and a very good loup de mer in the mediterranian style.

We had reserved for Lunch in the bar...the Pinte (a must!) and were welcomed with a good table, smiles and the offer to hang our coats.
We were 5 and our friends had been skiing in the morning.
As we were missing today's TV coverage of the Olympics in Russia, we decided to have as our main course their "Signature dish"...Penne a la Vodka. Although a common pasta, the Vodka somehow gave it a "mellow" finish and it was delicious. We gave it a Silver Medal!
But the Gold Medal went to the starter. It was another "simple" dish made special. It was a Carpaccio, sliced so thinly you could see through it. It had a criss-cross pattern of a mild mustard-based, mayonnaise (?) and a very well selected Gruyere (?) cheese. Both of these went exceedingly well with the beef and the whole dish was very well balanced.
We had 2 bottles of a local Pinot Noir, which was very light for a Pinot (but not light in price).
The place was fully occupied, with mostly "the beautiful people" (what else in Gstaad!) and the service continued smiley, friendly and professional.
We really enjoyed the meal here, so much so, that we almost missed the Goldenpass train back!

The food is good, but not excellent! The bar is a very lively place, a little loud, good service, and decor great, a place to see and be see... The dining rooms are nice, quieter. When you are known in this restaurant you definitely are served better!
The veal with white truffles, Tagliarini was just ok, truffles cooked into or on top of the veal, not shaved on....desert toblerone mouse was outstanding...

Never actually ate or even had a drink here. Walked in- got ignored by the MaitreD, then by a waitress, then by bar service and oh, the waiter is also ignoring us. We stood at the entrance to the bar waiting to be seated (or at least acknowledged). Waited for two long embarrassing minutes before leaving the place. We followed the ignorant MaitreD out through the door who seemed more excited in meeting his arriving italian friends outside (after letting the door close on my wife). Ever felt like the Invisible Man? You will here.
Unless you arrive chauffeur-driven or look/speak/behave like an italian, then I wouldn't bother if I were you.
Currently this is only 13th best restaurant in Gstaad- room for improvement Bernie.
