A guaranteed source of neutrinos is the production in cosmic ray interactions with the interstellar matter in our galaxy. The Antares neutrino telescope located in the Mediterranean Sea offers a high visibility of the central region of the Milky Way where most of this diffuse neutrino flux is expected. Antares data from 2007-2012 were used to compare the flux from a region centered around the Galactic center, extending 39 degrees in galactic longitude and 4.5 degrees in galactic latitude, with the flux from multiple equivalent off-source regions. The analysis will be presented together with the resulting constraints on the diffuse emission of high energy neutrinos from the Galactic plane.
