I think the place is over rathing. The food was good, but not excellent and came with an aftertaste when the receive arrived. We new the price, but we expected better. It's really to much expensive for what you have: we had about nothing in our plate.

The best tapas I've ever had! Great location overlooking the St. Lawrence river. We sat at the outdoor bar and chef Anthony was helpful guiding us through the menu. Portions are not large but everything was amazing. Escargot, shrimp, asparagus, even the toasted bread....all bursting with flavor. Nice selection of beers too

Very good food, nice view on the st-lawrence river, EXCELLENT buffalo tartar and grilled foie gras. This is THE restaurant in 3-Rivieres for spoiling yourself. We are from 3-rivieres and we have been there many times. Although it is still a fine place, Ifind that their new menu is not as interesting and is more expensive than it used to... More

OK, I've been there 3 times already: with a group of 15 on lunch time, with family for dinner and with a colleague for lunch. My assessment remains the same: the food is very creative, top notch, made with the best ingredients but someone has to tell them that for the money we pay, there's got to be more on... More

As my husband goes to the city often for business, he had mentioned dining at this place. So on our visit to Quebec City we stayed in Trois- Rivière and went for dinner at Poivre Noir... The winter view was beautiful can't image how summer would be as it over looks the River. The menu is different unlike your regular... More

We stopped at lunchtime in Trois Rivières on our way to Montreal and went to the Poivre Noir because of their good tripadvisor ranking. We were certainly not disappointed! The restaurant was nearly empty (I think we were the only tourists in town on that cold and windy day). We were friendly welcomed and given a nice window table with... More

We stopped in Trois Rivières on our way from Québec City to Montréal and were hoping to have a pleasant and original lunch. We had checked Tripadvisor as well as we the menu on the restaurant website. When we arrived at 1:45 we could not recognize the place. We asked to be seated inside but were told the inside was...
