When we honeymooned in the south of France 37 years ago, Josy Jo was recommended to us as a restaurant that was a must to visit. We were not disappointed and we have used their chocolate mousse and the gold standard benchmark for all those years. We recently revisited and found the quality of the food and service was every...

This restaurant has a good reputation and the overall experience was good. On our visit the welcome was friendly and the food perfectly acceptable. Maybe we were there on a slightly off-evening towards the end of the season. Some attention to detail was lacking, not helped by finding items on the bill we hadn't ordered, We received an apology but... More

Dear guests, You are true, something should have been offered to you : if you are still around, please come to pick up an homemade raspberry jam or specials mushrooms. We do apologize for that mistake. This is even more embarrassing when it happens with foreigners... Hope you will come back for a little gift or a glass of champagne... More

We came upon Josey-Jo by accident. We were looking for another restaurant in the area which turned out to be closed for a special party. A sign outside of Josey-Jo said valet parking and this is why we stopped. The area has very narrow windy streets and almost no parking. How lucky we were to wind up at this plan... More

Our friends live nearby and we all 4 went for dinner. "Madame", the owner greeted us all warmly and particularly our friends, whom had been several times over the summer. We had San outdoor but covered table in pleasant temperatures. The specials were seafood soup, which we all went for and veal liver, which 3 out of 4 went for.... More

We last went to josy-Jo about 8 years ago and thought we would try again following a conversation with a neighbour. Slightly disconcerting that when we turned up at 9.00 we were the only people in the restaurant. However, jazz evening in haut de cagnes so people started to arrive later. Big plus is that they have valet parking. Josy... More

We rented a flat in the area and tried several restaurants close by, which were all good, but Josy Jo was the best. It was probably the most expensive of the lot but well worth it. The food and service were both top notch. We took a chance, as we did not have a reservation, and we were glad that... More

You can see your fish or meat cooked in front of you on the charcoal grill. Choose your piece of charolais beef, french lamb, farm veal and ask the cook your favorite baking. The restaurant is located in the medieval town in the house where Soutine and Modigliani painted their firsts canvas ! You can have dinner under the arbor on inside.
