Try to go there early. It's a lovely old area and make sure to book a table in the terrace although to be honest even sitting inside is pleasant. The food is simple but fresh ingredients make it amazing. If you can chose more than one starter to try everything and then of course your own main course. If you... More

I visit this restaurant every year. The food is average to good depending on what you order. The owner tries to extract money from you at every opportunity and I would avoid / not go again. I asked for a fillet steak au poivre. Being French the waitress told me the fillet steak was served with a mushroom sauce. I... More

Dear Sir, I am very sorry to read this. Hope your pepper sauce was good. The price for supplements is written on menus. We use top quality fresh cream and pepper, it's not ready made sauce and it takes time to the cook for doing extras the right way. Good things have a price. Regards. More

We had heard about this restaurant and their lemon mousse so when we were staying near by we had to try it out. We went there and what a lovely place - service was outstanding, atmosphere great and the food was fantastic. Ohh and the lemon mousse was ..... to die for :-)

Ate at this amazing restaurant twice in just a few nights, as it was so delicious!!!!! The baby calamari in oil starter was the best i have ever had, and the sea bass main course again was so light and aromatic. I have eaten in many wonderful restaurants globally and this is at the top. The owner is an amazing... More

We ate here on the recommendation of a fellow hotel guest, we was disappointed with our experience. The atmosphere was cold and the food overpriced, there are better alternatives on top of the mount.

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

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".
