Although at sea front excellent value for Deauville even in August. With a couple of friends it was our first meal there and everyone enjoy it. well prepared moderatly priced and great view. The snobs will prefer other places on 'les planches' were they can be seen. At La peniche ask for a seat upfront. You will enjoy the view.

Going to Deauville out of season limits options to have a lunch by the sea, though la peniche is all you need. nice terrace, good selection of seafood, extremely fresh and tasty. service a but slow, though very amiable.

My wife and I (with dogs) chose this restaurant because of its setting and the specials on offer this evening, sea bass and veal T-bone. We received a warm welcome and were seated in the enclosed, heated terrace at the front of the restaurant (it is built on top of a old retired metal barge boat). What a great location.... More

We only went in to get out of the rain!! Ordered sole, it was amazing! Delicious, delicate fish, with s beautiful buttery sauce. Service was attentive & informed. Good atmosphere. Quiet, but lovely. Watched the rain while we waited. But it didn't matter. Will definitely. Visit again.

We came across this restaurant purely by chance on a Sunday lunchtime and thought that we'd never have a chance of getting a table for a meal. Thankfully we were totally wrong and got the last unbooked table. And how glad we were! The food and service were sublime and we had one of the best meals we've had in... More

We ate here after walking along the promenade and discovered that most of the sea front restaurants were either closing or very expensive. This is situated on a boat at the marina. The lady who was Front of House was very friendly and welcoming as we're all of the staff. We ate a 3 course set dinner for Euros 23.... More

We arrived without reservation on Bastille Day, we were quickly seated. We opted for a set price menu which was good value and absolutely lovely. Typically French and well cooked and presented. The service was friendly and efficient. I would recommend to others and re-visit if in the area.

Service is welcoming and the place is new with unique surroundings in Deauville. Food is correct but a bit too expensive for what it is. Either the cheap menu offers cheap food or the "a la carte" dishes are quite expensive. Apart from the location and features of the restaurant which make it worth it, the food has nothing special.

It's sadly not an easy place to find, best follow the map directions from their website, situated in a very nice setting actually on an old boat, the staff are friendly, the food is fresh but you will need all 3 courses to feel you have eaten a meal. Best take a breath of fresh air before the bill comes....its... More
