Inside Bleu Provence 05 (3)The Restaurants. Acclaimed by locals, visitors and critics alike for superb French Mediterranean bistro cuisine, an international wine list and attentive service, Bleu Provence is an epicurean favorite. Inspired by their native France and passion for fresh food and great wine, co-owners Jacques and Lysielle Cariot have blended elegant French dining with a romantic tropical setting to create a never-to-forget epicurean experience right here in Olde Naples.

Originally called Bamboo Cafe, Chez Boet opened in the Crayton Chez Boet 06 (2)Cove waterfront in 2003. That first year, owners Lisa and Philippe Boet made a commitment to cook with locally grown organic and seasonal produce as well as locally-sourced seafood. A majority of their menu items are also gluten free. Known for French home cooking, Chez Boet also speaks the language of French fondue.

The Boathouse is the only restaurant in Southwest Florida that sits entirely over the water. It is the reader’s choice champion The Dock 01 (4)for seafood and waterfront dining five years running, featuring local and Northern seafood as well as the exclusive license to sell Allen Brothers steaks from Chicago.

The Dock at Crayton Cove features bay views, great food and a laid-back atmosphere that have made this dining hot spot a Naples tradition since 1976.

The experienced concentration of professional artists who make Art After Dark an exciting art evening is located at the intersection of 8th St. S. & 12th Ave. S., all within a one-block walk. For more information, please visit
