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!
