My husband and I recently tried this place for dinner and were extremely impressed. The scallop and snapper entrees were amazing. Paul, our waiter, was equally impressive. We will definitely be returning and would highly recommend.

Conveniently located at 9853 Tamiami Trail N., Cafe Gourmand welcomes you in a relaxed and sophisticated atmosphere. The smells of traditional French cuisine will overcome your senses as soon as you walk through the door.
French Onion Soup, Escargots, Foie Gras or our traditional Beef Bourguignon, Duck à l'Orange or Sole Beurre Blanc are just a few of the specialties that await you on our dinner menu. Our goal is to provide our guests with the best tasting food made with quality ingredients, while keeping healthy and affordable for both your wallet and your pant size.

About the restaurant
Welcome to Shabo's Bistro, a chef-owned fine dining restaurant in Naples, Florida featuring contemporary American cuisine with a delightful Mediterranean twist.
Chef Shabo dedicated half of his career to the Marriott Corp and successfully opened two restaurants in Miami over the last decade.
In November 2019, his previous restaurant earned acclaim from a local critic Mike Mayo featured in the Sun Sentinel South Florida. Building on this success, he was recognized in May 2023 on "Check, Please! South Florida," airing on WPBT, WXEL and Youtube.
At Shabo's Bistro, we believe that the kitchen is a place of love and passion. Chef Shabo's expertise in spices is renowned, and his lamb dishes are a testament to his culinary mastery as well as slow-cooked perfection of our Beef Short Ribs.
We're offering a diverse menu that caters to a wide range of dietary preferences: vegetarian/vegan, or gluten-free, etc.
Shabo's Bistro is a family restaurant, offering brunch, lunch, happy hours and dinner.
