While staying near Homps, we wanted to find a suitable restaurant for lunch and walking along the canal came to 'La Peniche'. As we were travelling in October, many of the tourists had departed, so where able to enjoy an excellent meal with no pressure to 'move on'!

During our trip on the Canal du Midi we moored overnight at Homps opposite La Peniche. We booked a table for dinner and it was a good job we did as it was very popular indeed. Considering the number of covers the service was good as was the food. I had the special, superbly prepared large, juicy prawns, but my... More

We were on a self-drive cruise on the Canal du Midi and stayed overnight at the base in Homps prior to returning the boat. We chose to eat at La Peniche and we were very pleasantly surprised. This became a very full restaurant (mid-October) and the service was very friendly and very good. The selections were all very tempting, however... More

We were on a barge trip down the Canal du Midi and choose this place among the several restaurants in Homps. They have lots of tables including a number in a covered outdoor patio that is most pleasant. And the food is excellent and reasonable. For example, the Menu Terroir at 19.80€ offers entrees such as soup de poisons or... More

Love the prawns here for some reason and even the piazzas are really good. Always packed and we'll worth a visit.

We were travelling the Canal du Midi and had made reservations for dinner on Monday evening, but just about everything else was closed on Monday so we had lunch there as well. What a treat! We had lunch in the garden, which was a very nice way to eat outdoors while sheltered from the incessant wind. The cassoulet was marvelous.... More

Our party of five all enjoyed dinner and the nice atmosphere here. Menus were around 20 euros. One disappointment was the grilled cuttlefish -- it was a bit tough. Made the mistake of thinking it was the same as calimari. It was very busy even though low season, so make a reservation. We arrived around 3 pm, walked a bit... More

We recently visited Peniche on a trip through canal du Midi. We stopped by for lunch, and were intrigued by the Huitree on the menu. When the owner erased them from the blackbard, a groan went up from our Group. She then promised to save us what she had. We had a delightful dinner, in the inner garden, for four... More

We last ate here in 2008 on a trip through the Canal du Midi. We repeated that trip this year with more family members and were really looking forward to our stay in Homps so that we could revisit La Peniche. We had both lunch and dinner here. The food and service both met our high expectations. Because there were... More
