Now Property of the Formula 1 mogul Bernie Ecclestone (may I have, Bern,a ticket for the Monaco GP?LOL). 40 years ago, the Olden was the bourgeois pendant of the Aristocratic Palace de Gstaad. Now it is more than that, it is the "repaire" of the French Jet-setters flying Hollande overtaxing and the rich Italian lawyers with their Marchesa wives...

The Italian service is impeccable and downstairs the terrace is full of ambiance with the traditional Olden musician. After 10 PM it start to be "nicely wild" (compare to the Dralks in St.Moritz).

We were not very keen on their house champagne (Tsarine), I really prefer the great names such as Taiitinger and Mumm. The "Loup de Mer" was perfect, the Carpaccio was excellent and very pretty and I loved the small chicken from France. It was not a "Poussin de Bresse" (thanks for my wallet), but excellent (I dare not to compare it with the horrors I eat in Sarasota FL.).

We loved the nearby "Aigle des Murailles" formally "clos des murailles" white wine from Baudoux as usual. It is certainly the more decent Swiss white wine.

Olden is not cheap, but not astronomicaly priced. But be ready to wear nice clothes,dresses, watches and jewellery as people look at you when you are in the nice terrace located on the pedestrian main street of Gstaad.
