Fodor's Review

After 18 years performing in the kitchens of others, acclaimed chef Christian Morrisset opened one of the best restaurants in the Old Town of Antibes, on the site of what was formerly La Jarre. It is in a contemporary setting with dark wood tables and is gorgeously shaded by a 40-year-old fig tree and a canopy of vines—the shady street is one of the most picturesque in town. The former chef of Juana has kept his prices democratic at lunchtime, when a meal costs around

€20; you can easily spend twice as much at dinner. Typical of his style, which focuses on local ingredients, is a saddle of lamb from the Alpilles cooked in a crust of Vallauris clay with gnocci and truffles, zucchini, eggplant, and thyme jus.
