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

It was a last minute decision to try Josy-Jo on our drive back to Nice from Cannes. We'd read about it and thought it sounded worth the slight detour. On arrival we were pleased. It was a lovely looking restaurant and quite idyllic. Unfortunately, though, that's where any positives end. To start I ordered 'warm octopus salad'. It arrived stone... More

We recently visited this restaurant on the recommendation of a good friend who knows someone who lives in Cagnes-sur-mer. The food did not disappoint. The wine that was recommended by the waitress was a perfect accompaniment to the meal. The fish was mouth-watering and dessert was delicious. Yes, it is expensive, but this is a highly rated restaurant and compared... More

Good (but pricey) food and nice atmosphere but we were disappointed by customer service. The waiters were nice and service during dinner was good. However the bill came with a 70 euros charge for a bottle of wine that we never ordered. OK, errors can happen (it's always very disappointing though), so we tell the waiter who comes back with...

A very personal restaurant seemingly filled with returning local guests which always is a good measurement for quality. We called the same day and the restaurant was fully booked but with their and our good will we did get a very late table. The lamb we all had, different cuts, was superb! We will be back and book ahead!

Description

Josy-Jo opened in 1970. Since that time, Josy is still in the Kitchen to prepare her famous provencal starters: little stuffed vegetables, zucchini flower's fritters, sweet red peppers in olive oil sauce... 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. Josy welcomes her guests as friends. The mood is chic but easy going. Everything is home made out of fresh products. Alain Ducasse selected Josy-Jo as "Table remarquable".
