About La Péniche Restaurant

La Péniche is Falmouth’s vintage floating restaurant, where every seat has a harbour view. Our prime location tucked away on historic North Quay in the heart of the town and our novel premises provide our customers with a unique dining experience. We have been described as the jewel in the crown of Falmouth's dining scene....make sure your take the time to find this hidden gem!


​Join us for our breakfast or lunch and enjoy our special ambience and great views out across the harbour, quays and The Haven Marina. Small plates and mains or try our desserts with great coffee from local roasters. Quench your thirst with a taste bud tingling selection of cold drinks or warm yourselves up with a lovely tea. A beautiful haven to meet up with friends and family and nurture yourselves away from the crowds. Rain or shine you wont be disappointed. 


By night the mood changes; elegant, sophisticated, and yes, very French (like our head chef) and rather romantic. But we're so much more than just the best date night location.....if you enjoy quality food, beautifully presented and fine wines bring your friends and see for yourself!

Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see what’s new! Don't miss out on offers, news and events. If you're ready to walk the plank come take a stroll down quay street onto North Quay and through the upper marina gates. We look forward to welcoming you on board soon!


Doggie parents please note that your well behaved pups are always welcome during the day.

SAFETY ADVISORY: Whilst we have a safe, wide enclosed gangway we do go up and down with the tide and the ramp may be steeper when you leave than when you came on board! This is all part of the Peniche experience but for some it's an important consideration. We request that parents adequately supervise their children on board and when using the pontoons and ramps and exploring the quays.
