Anything the guidebooks won't mention in and around Antibes?

I'll be headed to Antibes at the end of January and I'm looking for any good restaurants in and around the area! Not necessarily expensive; I'm a pretty regular traveler to Europe so I'm comfortable skipping the old standards.

Are there street carts of note?

Thanks so much in advance!

  1. I hate to say this, but robberies. Watch your bags, lock your car doors, even when driving.

      No one would dare touch Scott & Zelda. They were the ones who put Antibes on the map !

        We were robbed in Vallurais in the Madoura pottery parking lot, as soon as we pulled in and unlocked the car door. We actually tried to chase the guy, but eventually spent a few hours in the local police station reporting the crime. Local chief of police in cowboy boots and USMC memorabilia in his office, but no help except a phone to call credit card companies. The thief reached into the car and grabbed my handbag from near my feet.

        FYI, the nom d plume stems from one of many ways we have signed postcards to friends. From Cuba, we'd be Ricky and Lucy, f.i. Since this is the French Board. . . ScottnZelda.
