A chic Parisian-style bistro, Chez Boët serves authentic, market-inspired French classics such as Kobe boeuf bourguignon, bouillabaisse, orange duck, locally-sourced seafood, and cheese Fondue. Our menu is now 90% gluten-free and features Kobe beef, organic spices, and healthy French sea salt. The country-French cuisine is inspired by classic recipes of fresh seasonal ingredients handed down through generations of French home cooks. Mixologist Philippe recommends French aperitifs, his classic cocktails, digestifs or scotchs from the full bar. Warm service and designer decor create a welcoming ambiance perfect for an intimate dinner or for entertaining friends. An outdoor covered terrace has views of the waterfront village of Crayton Cove. Since 2003, Parisian imports Lisa and Philippe Boët have been organizing private parties for groups and celebrations.

Certainly not up to the usual. “Rack of Lamb” - two small chops - if the kitchen does not have enough product, take it off the menu. Duck was also not up to par & waiter did not seem interested. Cannot blame it on busy restaurant - if so, needed to be prepared. Will be a while before we return.

The food was wonderful as usual. Their duck, rack of lamb, mussels, burgers, potatoes and vegetables are excellent.
Owners are friendly and attentive. Noise level is
high especially if some guests are loud since tables are in close proximity.
Convenient parking facility
Well worth the visit but reservations are strongly suggested.

This is a wonderful treat for local French food. Onion soup that was almost carmelizes with a sweetness and hat made it unlike elsewhere . The fondue was to be savored with amazing flavor and clearly a high quality cheese. The vegetables were vibrant and seasoned to perfection...blanched to allow for a just a light bite against the fondue. Fresh bread was delicious. Topping it off with the chocolate fondue ...with freshest fruits of the season. Would definitely go again!!

Greeted like family... the wine by the bottle prices are inexpensive, with a deep list. The organic vegetables were the standout! The entrees had that “cooked special for you” feel. Our 5th time there and they did. It disappoint. Thank you Philippe and Lisa for a great dining experience.

Chez Boet is a charming French restaurant. It is a nice size, not too big. The owners are on the premises greeting guests. The food is delicious, prepared from local ingredients when possible. It is notable that they have cocktails as well as wine. I highly recommend Chez Boet for its ambience and its food.

Everything was good, nothing was special. Lovely ambiance and very solid service. First courses -- a house salad and fish soup -- were quite nice. Mains -- steak frites and duck -- were good, but lacking. There are too many other similar restaurants in the area that execute these classic dishes better. Thus, we would not recommend this place.

A real restaurant with real French food, a rarity in Naples. Ideal for that special meal out, our favourite for birthdays and the like. Only word of caution. We had visited on a Saturday night recently and the ambience is much noisier - forget pleasant conversation - but the food was just as good.

Dining at Chez Boet is always a special evening. The owners greet you like old friends, the staff are friendly, courteous and professional. The food is outstanding and plated beautifully. I usually have the Bouillabaisse, which is always excellent, but made myself order something else this time. My husband and I shared the escargot, the beet salad and I ordered the snapper for my entree. He had the lamb tangine. Both were wonderful.

This is my favorite restaurant in Naples. It is owned by a lovely couple, the Boets, and they are on the premises and warm in their welcoming manner with their guests. My favorite entrees are the moules frites, the boulabaise, and the duck. Favorite starters are the soupe de poisson and the escargot. The wine list is extensive and priced fairly. The house wines by the glass are superb and a great buy. The ambience and service (thank you Aura!) are special, as is this wonderful place itself.

We went to Chez Boet, after reading many great reviews, to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. Unfortunately did not get off to a good start when after sitting there for 20 minutes or more we had not been asked if we would like a cocktail. It was then around 30 minutes (after asking) before the cocktails arrived or our order taken. After that it was full speed ahead with all 3 courses being served within 45 minutes. I am afraid we can only describe the food as ordinary and bland, even my husband’s lamb tagine had very little flavour. The evening was so disappointing as we were so looking forward to it and it certainly didn’t live up to expectations. On a final note our anniversary wasn’t acknowledged once - don’t necessarily expect to receive anything, but a “happy anniversary “ would have been nice.
