The beginning of February is a tense time for restaurants, especially those with Michelin stars or those hoping to gain one of those much sought after stars.

Yesterday, Michelin published their list of 2017 Michelin Guide restaurants, which includes those restaurants not only with one, two or three stars, but also those restaurants that Michelin has singled out as 'Bib Gourmand'.

Happily, for the gourmets, foodies and tourists of Antibes, the town has four Michelin star restaurants. Les Pecheurs on boulevard du Marechal-Juin in Juan-les-Pins, Le Figuier de Saint Esprit on promenade Amiral de Grasse, La Passagère in Hotel Belles Rives in Juan-les-Pins and Bacon on the Cap d'Antibes.

New kid on the butcher's block this year, comes in the form of Le Saint-Martin restaurant at the Saint-Martin Spa & Chateau in Vence, who have earned their first Michelin star under the guidance of Chef Jean-Luc Lefrançois.

Sadly, for those looking for a romantic meal on Valentine's Day, both Les Pecheurs and La Passagère are shut for the winter season! However, if you are thinking of popping the question and are hoping to get down on one knee in an establishment with a certain amount of class and elegance; then you'll need to get in there quickly to secure you and your loved one a table at either Bacon or Le Figuier de Saint Esprit for that oh-so-special occasion.

Love is in the air Antibes...right alongside those Michelin stars!
