Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were lucky to pick this restaurant from the Michellin guide and liked everything about our visit… cozy place. The host(s) know(s) exactly what they are doing in a friendly, relaxed and welcoming fashion, leading up to an excellent meal accompanied by an excellent selection...of wine. Real treat and highly recommended!More

My second visit to La Peniche, this time with family. We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening, eat great food served with style and panache, drank good wine and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. We were made to feel at home from the moment we arrived...and were sad to leave, much fuller than when we arrived - a special thank you to the two ladies who served us. Decorated in a eclectic style with all of the vast wine list on open display La Peniche is definitely a palce to make memories and enjoy a step back from the day to day. I can be certain that we will return again next time we are in the area.More

Very nice restaurant in a special location on the water. It has a warm atmosphere and nice music in the background. The food is excellent and the wine list is extensive. The catalana is a must try. We will be back again

Good music, great food and a fabulous wine selection ... This visit to La Peniche will, hopefully, be the first of many. Really good food served by friendly, attentive staff coupled with an impressive wine list made for a great evening out, thank you.

Went to the restaurant as a party of 4. Was welcomed warmly as we entered the restaurant and shown promptly to our table. The food tasted great and well presented. The wine list was huge and not too expensive. Service was attentive and friendly without...being invasive. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. When we had finished for the evening (4 hours later), there weren't any taxis to take us back to our hotel so the restaurant team searched high and wide to find us someone, which they did.
