Food was good but a little pricey. Service was good. I guess you pay for the view. Be aware of a cover charge just to eat here.

Chez Black was recommended by our hotel staff. At first we hesitated - a French name? Was it local food? Well, not only was it fantastic local fare, but you'll have to visit to find out the charming story of how it came to be named Chez Black! The dining room is open to the beach (even in November) with... More

Yes it might seem like a tourist trap as its right on the beach but its not at all!!! Its been around for over 30 years and has amazing fresh seafood. The house wine is wonderful as well and priced around 20 bucks btl.

Food was just okay, the service was lousy. Went early by Italy standards with two kids, and had to wait a good 20 minutes to even get a waiter to acknowledge us. Location was great, but the rest of just okay.

I visited Positano in Nov during the afternoon. Many restaurants were closed but thankfully Chez Black was open. Service was good and attentive and the food was good. However, I did feel it was a little pricey but given the view from my table, I expected that.

Of the limited options in Positano, Chez Black came to us as not great, but better than the average. The food here was good - not great - as was the service. While we have nothing much to complain about, it did feel more like your run of the mill Italian restaurant, not necessarily still deserving of its reputation. In... More

I recently visited Chez Black while spending a week in Positano, and thought Chez Black was fantastic, pricing was a little on the high side, but still very reasonable. Food and service were outstanding, and location was fantastic. Highly recommend visiting Chez Black.

Came here after seeing good reviews online and we are very disappointed. It was clear the staff is ready to close shop up for the year. Very condescending and borderline rude when we asked for recommendations on wine and food. Wine list was incredible and extensive. Waiter did suggest a good bottle. Thumbs up. When we asked questions about menu... More

At this prominent spot right on Positano beach you would expect the typical tourist rip- off. Chez Black isn't. Great food, great service, great atmosphere.
