Outstanding "Restaurant Gastronomique"

Curiously, despite the avalanche of tourists who visit daily, the old town of Antibes has very few fine restaurants, most are just simple bistrots. Le Figuier is located in a narrow quiet lane just to the side of the Marche Provencale, near the Musee Picasso. It's an oasis of calm amidst the... read more

A memorable first visit. We had a table on the terrace (a beautiful setting) and the food was absolutely incredible. The duck and the 'famous' lamb were so delicious and cooked to perfection. There were also lots of extra bits served during dinner - a lovely surprise....especially the lavender creme brûlée. The desserts were unreal. The staff were very welcoming... More

It was a pleasant evening, but it is not a memorable one. The surroundings were very nice, the menu was well presented, but it was as if these were things on a 'tick list' that had to be done in order to try to get another star.... The most important thing in a restaurant should be the food - not... More

My wife and I went for lunch today and enjoyed one of our best meals for a long time. This was our second visit after a wonderful dinner last time. Impeccable cooking and warm friendly service. No pretension here. Our three courses were actually six and every dish was executed well --both tasty and fresh with quality ingredients . My... More

After more than 25 yrs Concierge experience in the SOF, allow me to advise the 1st Class travelers: Unfortunately, despite of the Chef being a great professional, this place is lacking the essential to be a good address to recommend. Bad attitude combined with a poor service make this location a no go for the Elite. The location is quaint... More

Eating at Le Figuier is a whole different class of experience than anywhere else we've been in Antibes. The service, ambience, food quality, and presentation are, in a word, impeccable. An amazing meal, and if 100 Euro a person is in your budget, a great value, strange as that may sound; compared to restaurants of half the price, Le Figuier... More

We just enjoyed every minute of our dinner at Le Figuier. Great welcome, super advice on the rosé wine and delicious dinner with a special vow for the duck with foie gras.

What an amazing experience ! getting there is not easy, but is worth a whole travel. Stunning location in front of the sea, this restaurant is very well known in the area by local people. It's definitely not a tourist trap. The quality of the products combined with an exquisite presentation makes this place perfect. I highly recommand the Rouget... More

My boyfriend booked this restaurant for my birthday. We eat at many Michelin restaurants and we were looking forward to trying this one. Most staff were attentive and friendly. The service wasn't rushed and not intrusive. There was a waiter who looked new as was slightly clumsy, however this didn't detract from the food. The food was as we would... More

The restaurant is gorgeous inside with a large living fig tree. The food is typical artsy Michelin starred food. Very overpriced compared to other places in antibes (you pay 2-3 times more) Service is very polite, if a bit too formal and stuffy. I HATE that they still use the "ladies' menus" with no prices. Very insulting.
