About Bleu Provence
Bleu Provence is a Zagat-rated and  Wine Spectator  Grand Award Winning French Restaurant located in Naples, Florida. After retiring from Provence, France, Jacques and Lysielle Cariot started Bleu in 1999 as a labor of love. They count their patrons more as welcome guests than customers, and you will see that expressed not only in the world-class wine selection and menu, but also in the level of service. Bleu Provence, where elegance and hospitality are one, and the marriage of wine and food is a delight. "C'est très bon!"
