A 1930’s French barge (LA PENICHE) lovingly restored and sailed over from Burgundy (Chalon-sur-Saone) by owners Tony & Kate Elliott-Cannon
La Péniche is Falmouth’s vintage floating French barge restaurant where every seat has a harbour view. Our prime location and novel premises provide our customers with a unique dining experience. Join us for lunch from noon 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 bayside with a lovely tea.
By night the mood changes; elegant, sophisticated, and yes, very French (like our head chef) and rather romantic. And then of course there’s the food and the wine… Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Trip Advisor to see what’s new! Don’t miss out on offers, news and events. We are open all year round. Rain or shine you won’t be disappointed. 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.
