My wife and I received a warm welcome from the owner (I assume), we sat outside and enjoyed the view. I asked for a recommendation for a red wine and received a bottle much better than I expected, they obviously know wine! The escargot was delicious, we actually order another one after eating the first. The lamb chop was delicious... More

Hubby won a gift certificate to Chez Boet in a golf tournament. We waited for the perfect day to visit and were not disappointed. Last Saturday the weather in Naples was cooler, windy and magnificent. Not sure if they served lunch, we headed over to their location near the city dock at Crayton Cove. While they were not yet open... More

The Food was excellent but what made it better was the Personal Touch by both owners. Wonderful atmosphere. The service was also... More

Yesterday was our 59th anniversary and we chose to celebrate it at ChezBoët. Lisa and Philippe welcomed us warmly and we enjoyed a quiet evening. We are both originally French and appreciated the menu specialties. The escargots with a touch of anisette and the (homemade) pâté plate we chose as an appetizer were delicious. My husband enjoyed the shrimps and... More

Christopher served us up excellence! Croquettes de formage was a decadent starter split. We each had the Jura Saladae which is light and to die for! The vanilla bean dressing I need in barrels. The apple pie with mango and scratch Carmel awesome!

We both had different versions of Tagine, a Moroccan stew served in a unique domed ceramic bowl. We had the lamb and the seafood variations which are served with vegetables... More

Walking into Chez Boet was like walking into the home of family friends in France. The service was amazing and the food too good for words! Mr Boet & Mrs Boet are beyond hospitable! Mrs Boet made the best chicken curry you could ever imagine and Mr. Boet serves up drinks that will knock you out of your seat... Best... More
