A HOUSE STANDING FOR OVER 40 YEARS
An old house where Soutine and Modigliani used to live.
Josy created Josy-Jo in 1970. As a woman of character, she immediately took charge of the kitchen and restaurant. The international clientele love this regional house characterized by the cheerful personality of its owner. An address “with no fuss” as described in the Michelin guide, where guests are received in the spirit of table d’hôte from generation to generation.
Now and then, local customers mingle with celebrities (Gwyneth Paltrow, Robert De Niro, Christopher Lambert …). Great chefs, friends of Josy, like to come and relax here: Jacques Maximin, Alain Ducasse, Stéphane Raimbaut all give support to Josy for her tasty cuisine through which we can find the flavours of her childhood …
AN EXCEPTIONAL ENVIRONMENT TO DISCOVER SOME HERITAGE
The restaurant’s windows open to the south on Notre Dame de la Protection and to the west on the square of Planastel and the gardens of the former convent. Facing Josy-Jo, Notre Dame de la Protection and its cobblestone paving give a taste of the beauty of the picturesque streets of the village between calades and “pontis”.
The medieval village of Haut-de-Cagnes is known for preserving its historical sites: medieval fortifications, cobblestone streets, pontis.
