If you're in Homps this is definitely the place to eat. Six of us had a lovely meal here - great, friendly staff - one of whom 'photo bombed' one of our pictures! Not only do they know about food and how to have a good time they know about the weather too! During our meal staff started to 'baton... More

This was our second restaurant in Homps - 334€ for 9 of us to have dinner - food and service very good - but on balance I prefered the En Bonne Compagnie - where we ate a few nights earlier

We live locally, and after a very disappointing experience at En Bonne Compagnie last week , we booked La Peniche for lunch for my mother in laws 89th birthday. She is very frail and has a limited palate, but the requests we made for a special meal were met by the chef with aplomb. The food was very good, and... More

Lovely food with a varied menu and reasonable prices. The young staff worked extremely hard! Allowing dogs close to where people are eating is smelly, unpleasant and unhygienic. The restaurant should ban them or segregate diners.

Well, we were so impressed that we dined there twice. Very good quality French cooking, reasonably priced. Cheerful and efficient service. A place to relax, enjoy, savor. Apart from the restaurant it is great to sit at a canal side table in the morning for an expresso. Or wine. Just wish it was closer than a two hour drive On... More

Great wood-fired pizzas in a very pretty spot right beside the canal. We were welcomed by friendly staff and seated in the courtyard out the back. Decent house wine and a tasty meal - what's not to like? If you want something posher, head over the bridge to En Bonne Compagnie - but if you're peckish for a pizza you're... More

We were warmly welcomed, without a reservation off our boat, and very well served. Our French and our waitress's English were about on par, but ordering is simple if you choose the menu. And we did, the 20 Euro Terroir menu. For me, the delight was the cuttlefish, beautifully prepared and lots of it. The salad was excellent, also. All... More

We just wanted a light lunch before our Canal du Midi barge trip. Had a nice fluffy omelett, pleasant and quick service. We had lunch inside, but they also have some sort of pleasant terrace in the back.
