    Incredible food, amazing experience, and friendly staff! Booked this as a late Mother’s Day while visiting Dublin and had a wonderful time. Couldn’t recommend more!

    We booked the Mother's Day cruise as a group of 5 adults and really enjoyed the experience. The novelty of dining on the boat was exciting and exceeded expectation. The options on the menu were great and catered for the vegetarians within our group. We were all very pleased with our food options especially the fish and aubergine mains. The staff were really attentive and worked really well together as a team on the boat to keep all of the guests happy. We also had an opportunity to go to the upper deck as the boat sailed along the canal, which was a great experience. I would highly recommend this restaurant and we had a really lovely Sunday afternoon.

    We ate at La Peniche on Christmas night, and it was outstanding. The food was great, the staff were hard working and diligent, and everything was cool. My only complaint was that, as a broad shouldered American on a completely booked night, the quarters were a little tight. Otherwise, outstanding--I highly recommend.

    Excellent review! Food was great, chef did a great job despite the very small kitchen. Service was good as well. The whole ambience was romantic - just ideal for dates or with small group of friends 👍🏻

    Nice setting but the food was very slow and cold when it arrived. Trading off its novelty rather than product.
