a few of our recent trip advisor reviews
Visiting from London and we were looking for a high quality restaurant, and this place hit the mark! Amazing service, we phoned for a late booking and they held a table for us. Really delicious menu I was recommended the pork which was superb and tender with a perfectly crisp crust. Dessert was unique and special, I’d recommend the dark chocolate one! Highly recommended little niche boat restaurant.

We had a wonderful lunch at La Peniche whilst on our honeymoon. It far exceeded all of our expectations so much so we returned the day after to try the other dishes we hadn’t had on our first visit. I can’t believe there is anywhere else in Falmouth doing food this good, this is such a hidden gem! I imagine when word gets out we might really struggle to get a table in future. It’s so nice to find a restaurant that isn’t only winning in terms of the thought that goes into their menu and food but also the wine list. Possibly the best list we have seen this side of the channel with a great range of half bottles to pair with the courses as well as full bottles.

First time visit to La Peniche. Had heard good things, but wasn’t sure. Wanted somewhere different to take old friends, and gave it a go. The food was very very good. As an example as a starter I had Smoked Octopus on a bed of the loveliest creamed potato. It was gorgeous. Followed by Slow roasted Belly Pork with ginger and the trimmings (sorry I can’t be more precise). The service was prompt, friendly and very helpful. Oh and the wine was pretty good value for the money.

Fantastic evening with friends for my 50th birthday. Wanted something special and La Peniche didn't disappoint. Food was amazing, loved the small touches (amuse bouche, warm bread, flavoured butter) . The meal was delicious and good value for a special occasion and something out of the ordinary (who knew goats cheese mousse was a thing). As locals, we will definitely be returning and recommending to friends & family

The restaurant was in a cool and quirky location, immaculately clean and the pictures on their website show it as it really is. In regard the service my family and received, we where looked after by Emily and her Service was 5 star throughout, she was particularly attentive with our children who were both exhausted from a day at the beach so she did well to encourage them to eat. The food was beautifully presented, cooked to perfection and for the wine lovers like me it had a good bottle to chose from. The atmosphere was vibrant and had a mixture of romantic couples, adult friends and yes we had the only young family but did not feel uncomfortable or out of place.

"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?"
