Went to Chez Jo after a recommendation from a friend while on holiday in Le Levandou. What an amazing restuarant. Thank God we reserved. The Atmosphere right on the water is always feel good. My husband speaks French so that always helps. The food was amazing. Had the Spaghetti with crayfisch,Yum and my Husband had Salad and grilled Fish. Portions... More

The menu is very basic: fish, lobster, prawns, omelettes. But don't be fooled, as everything is fresh, beautifully cooked and delicious. Tables are crammed together which adds to a party atmosphere. Staff work hard in challenging conditions. Prices are not cheap. Having said all that, it will probably be the best meal of your holiday! Nudist beach but clothes compulsory... More

We arrived to the beach by boat and a young man came and got us on a cute little paddle boat which was pleasant. We waited a short while to be seated and had to flag someone down to order. There were plenty of large groups seated and were quite rowdy but I guess that adds to the atmosphere. The... More

Such a wonderful place to visit! The staff can speak some English and are extremely welcoming. Food is so wonderful and a real treat. Prices are very reasonable and is one of our favourite places to visit. If coming by boat, there is a taxi boat I pick you up if you don't fancy swimming to shore. A real bohemian... More

The food was amazing but had a slight shock as the beach is nudist . A beautiful spot but you better come waxed girls and boys.

We have visited this restaurant twice now, both times there was 20+ of us! Each time everything was perfect. The food is out of this world which is served by wonderful staff. Highly recommended.

I visited with my wife and a couple of friends to celebrate our friend's 50th birthday having visited last year for his wife's 50th. The weather had been awful in the morning and we were concerned that the restaurant may not be open as the pontoon is only protected by umbrellas. Fortunately they were still open. There was only one... More

We were unlucky with the weather (first time in South of France when the sun didn't shine continuously!) and decided to explore a little. I had heard of Chez Jo and decided we should give it a try. We were the only couple on arrival and although very windy the sun kept teasing through and heated up the open terrace.... More

Top fish and the potatoes are to die for. Typically French, it's on the beach with the best view. Bottle of Rose and some lobster spaghetti to make a day.

A quite a long walk and down a steep slope so older and less mobile visitors should take time and take care. But the journey is worth every step! Bustling, waterside style with a lobster speciality (they require notice of this dish.) Everyone who visits here seems to have fun. My second visit and will return for sure.

Thank John B
