Service is ok, but prices are high. Baby octopus is very neutral, not tasty and expensive. Wines are expensive. We had 50cl rose for 26EUR. I would not go for a second time.

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".
