PissaladièreYour stay at the Campanile hotel-restaurant in Antibes is a chance to discover or rediscover Provençal cuisine, including the famous pissaladière from Nice, which you’ll find throughout the region. It looks like a tomatoless pizza with stewed onions. In Nice, as indicated by its name, we add pissalat, a typical fish-based sauce. In Antibes, you’ll taste a version without this typical sauce because it gets replaced with salted anchovies!
Tian and Provençal tomatoesEnjoy delicious Provençal vegetables during your visit to Antibes by choosing the famous tian, including the summer vegetable gratin (tomatoes, zucchini, bell peppers, eggplant, garlic and of course… herbes de Provence) that bakes very slowly in the oven and the famous Provençal tomatoes, traditionally covered with breadcrumbs, garlic and olive oil. Visit your Campanile hotel-restaurant for the best local summer vegetable specialties!
Pistou SoupA visit to Antibes in the summertime is an opportunity to sample pistou soup, made with vegetables, pasta and, as its name indicates, pistou. Pistou is made with basil, garlic and olive oil, but it stands out from its Italian pesto cousin that’s also made with pine nuts and shredded cheese. There are many versions of this dish. Pistou is usually mixed in with the soup but can also be served separately, to let you choose how you want to mix it.
