Every time I visit Chez Boet, I am happily reminded why I love this place. It serves really fresh food, which is well prepared and delicious. You can always count on the dish being exactly as you remembered it from the last time you had it. The country pate is always one of my favorite menu items and it was... More

This charming, little restaurant provided an amazing dining experience. We received a warm greeting at the door and had our choice of tables. Once seated, we noticed the owners walking around and chatting with the diners. The menu was superb with numerous offerings. The Jura Salade had the most marvelous vanilla dressing that was light yet enough to compliment the... More

Philip & Lisa, the owners, very sincerely welcome you into their unique french bistro. There is a small bar to have a drink if desired before you sit down. The wine list... More

Our waiter Monsieur Richard is very friendly esp to our 3 year old daughter. What strikes me is their good selections of children's menu. We ordered a bottle of good French wine & take it home as...

Lovely small restaurant in Crayton Cove. We sat outside for our dinner. Escargot, New Zealand Lamb, seafood tagine, and a delicious puff pastry for dessert. Service was very attentive and the food was well prepared. Nice for a special occasion as it was our anniversary.

It was my birthday, so of course I picked the restaurant, and I chose one of my top three favorites in Naples. I really love this place. The menu does not change, except for the specials which are limited, and that's good because then I get to sample virtually all of the items over the course of time. Classic preparation,... More
