Neutrino telescopes perform an indirect search for dark matter (DM) through its annihilation into standard model channels yielding neutrinos, for a broad range of WIMP masses. The ANTARES detector, anchored to the Mediterranean seabed at a depth of about 2500 m, looks for a DM signal from two promising neutrino sources from WIMP annihilation: the Galactic Center and the Sun. We present the latest results on ANTARES indirect detection in a wide range of WIMP masses and decay channels, and give a future prospect on sensitivities of DM searches with the KM3NeT detector, the next-generation neutrino telescope, currently under deployment in the Mediterranean Sea. These experiments have specific advantages, complementary to other detection strategies, and can provide a smoking-gun signal. The geographical location of ANTARES and KM3NeT is particularly well suited for searches in the Galactic Center, allowing for the world-best sensitivity for WIMP annihilation.
