a few of our recent trip advisor reviews

"The staff were fabulous and the ambience on the boat was lovely, with soft lighting reflecting off the windows to give a beautiful warming glow.
Obviously the food is the main event and that too was outstanding. Between us we had crab chowder, fillet steak and a hake dish. All were cooked and presented perfectly, and on a boat, what's not to like?"

"Our favourite restaurant in Falmouth.

Such an unusual setting. The decor is lovely, the food delicious and the service is very attentive. We loved the moules mariniere starter.

We loved this restaurant so much that we managed to dine here twice in our one week stay"

"Being set on a converted barge floating in Falmouth harbour is always going to provide a great atmosphere. Add to that a friendly and knowledgeable front of "house" staff and expert chefs and you have a really winning combination.

Great food (mussels in particular are local, fresh and wonderful). Both fish and meat dishes centre on simple flavour combinations that work really well. And the prices are so reasonable. We loved it!"

"Just when you think Falmouth has some restaurants that you can't improve on, along comes La Peniche

Just nothing to criticise. Delicious crab chowder, succulent goat's cheese starters followed by a juicy slab of beef and a bouillabaisse. Shared pannacotta. Quality wines. Tremendous harbour views on a beautifully converted 1930's French canal barge. Real atmosphere. Oh and great service!"

"Friendly staff, delicious food, beautiful atmosphere and amazing location. 
As a Falmouth local I feel this is a great addition to the restaurant scene in the town and I would highly recommend La Peniche to anyone, This would also be an impressive date location (you're welcome fellas). I will definitely be back!"
