We are full time Naples residents and love to enjoy a nice dinner out (often). We had the pleasure of dining at Chez Boet last night for the first time with friends, it will not be our last. 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!

French Husband and American wife have established a lovely bistro near the Naples waterfront. The terrace dining was a treat for the snowbirds with just the right amount of elegance. 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

Very difficult to understand anything he said, English or French(all guests proficient in both languages) since he mumbled so much....almost knocked two of us off our chairs, very slow service,...

We have used this restaurant on and off for a few years now. It used to be the Bamboo Café, the name has changed but everything else is the same. For me, it is a little too densely packed with tables and that can be an irritation if it is not a bistro style place where you expect it. This... More

We enjoyed a wonderful meal at Chez Boet with friends last night. The chicken liver appetizer is to die for and the duck entree was cooked to perfection. Nice wine list of reasonably priced wines. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the escargot as well. Our server, Christopher, was a delight and the owners have certainly perfected making you feel at home.... More
