The ANTARES detector is the largest neutrino telescope in the Northern Hemisphere. All-flavour neutrino interactions can be observed and reconstructed with high precision by the experiment. The highly significant excess of cosmic neutrinos observed by the IceCube detector can be studied with ANTARES exploiting the complementarity of its field of view and its reconstruction performance. Searches for diffuse neutrino signals have been conducted using the ANTARES dataset. The results of these searches will be reported in this contribution. An excess of events with respect to backgrounds is observed in both the cascade and track samples.
