Petit Hotel

Perched on the mountain top called Chaumont, and overlooking Lake Neuchâtel in the distance, is the old Petit Hotel Restaurant. Specialty of the house is their tender and delicious cheval (horse) steak served sizzling on a hot slate. If the idea of eating man's second best friend causes your palate to recoil in horror, the fondue is also good.

The Petit Hotel Restaurant is open in the mornings for coffee and croissants. Dinners range from CHF18 to CHF40. For dinner call for a reservation and ask for a table by the window on the lake side. Dress is casual.

By the way . . . though known as the 'Petit Hotel' rooms are no longer available for the night. This is strictly a restaurant.
