Fodor's Expert Review Le Figuier de Saint-Esprit

$$$$ Antibes French Fodor's Choice

Christian Morisset’s Michelin-starred restaurant is named after the 40-year-old fig tree that, along with a canopy of vines, gorgeously shades the private courtyard. One of the best restaurants in the region, the haute cuisine chef is dedicated to his daily market, where he bases his wonderfully scrumptious set menus. Yes, it's a tad pricey—à la carte is around €90 for a main—and don't choke when you see a €3,900 bottle of 1990 Château Lafite Rothschild on the wine list; like everything else on the menu, it's there for a reason.
