Michelin-Star cuisine in a unique setting
Just off the seafront, in the Old Town of Antibes, Le Figuier de Saint-Esprit is a relaxed and welcoming venue for fine Provençal cuisine.
A short distance from the port in Antibes, this unassuming restaurant is ideally located for those visiting the area on a South of France yacht charter, serving fine French regional cuisine in unique surroundings.
Diners sit beneath the leafy, spreading branches of the venerable fig tree that gives Le Figuier de Saint-Esprit its name and enjoy a peaceful and unhurried ambience as they peruse the menu.
Chef Christian Morisset, who has been awarded a Michelin Star for his creative take on traditional Provençal and Mediterranean cuisine, has devised a seven-course tasting menu featuring some of his most popular specialities, including roast lobster and pan-fried foie gras.

Chef Morisset sources his ingredients from the local market every day to create colourful, interesting and innovative dishes, influenced by the culinary tradtions of the Côte d'Azur.
Try the roast turbot with truffles, saddle of lamb cooked in clay, or the squid cannelloni, and to round off your meal there's an array of imaginative desserts, including roasted apricots with rosemary meringue and wild strawberry millefeuille.
Le Figuier has a particularly good wine list, featuring some of the very best vintages from across France, including wines from Château Lafite Rothschild, Château Latour and Château Rayas.
