Very expensive but I don't feel that the food is all that special. Be prepared to dress up when going there unless you want to stand out like a sore thumb.

Loved the quality and charm of this restaurant. Only a couple of issues they had No AC and the room we had for 60 people upstairs got very hot. Also they struggled a bit to get the food out quickly for our party . Many...had to start eating while others were waiting their food as service was a bit slow.More

While in the area for the Blues Festival we found this gem of a restaurant. It was a pleasant surprise with good service and a pleasant meal. We enjoyed two of their evening specials; the trout and the veal. We will surely return another time.

This place has a unique personnel servicing the customers. They make you feel welcome and serve the customers with happiness. Fine cuisine and Claude's specialty is certainly the duck.

I must have eaten here a dozen or so times over the past few years. Every dish is a challenge for the senses. The food and service here will easily match anything you will have experienced here or abroad. Many of the offerings are local....A little far from the downtown Trois Rivieres area but well worth the 10 minute car ride to this establishment near the Laviolette Bridge.More

Le Castel des Prés begins with a well curated wine list. The servers suggestion, a dry French Chablis, primed my taste buds for the meal to come. My choice was salmon tartare topped with greens and lightly pickled cabbage and accompanied with likely cucumber and...reddish. I added the shooter of Worcestershire sauce to heat this avalanche of subtly blended tastes, and took a few promme fritts (crisp on the outside and creamy on the inside) dipped in a mustard mayo. My companion started with tomato bisque and followed with a elegantly composed Caesar Salad dressed with crisp pancetta and thin layers of parmesan cheese. The wine was worth repeating with dessert: a chocolate lava cake dressed with fruit, whipped cream and more chocolate cream. It was hard to find such a fine venue in the suburban sprawl on the outskirts of Trois-Rivieres. A sprawling building that likely hosts large parties, we dined on the covered patio/late spring. A perfect setting and great attention to the server who was patient with our travellers French and filled in gaps with English explanations. It's worth going out of the way to enjoy a meal here.More

I found my way here because of chance meeting with a wonderful woman I met at a museum in Montreal. After spending an amazing day together she recommended I eat here because I was en route from Montreal to Québec City. She said she had...the best steak she had eaten in 10 years at this restaurant. How could I not eat there? I arrived at 8:30, ravenous. I ordered their in house smoked salmon appetizer and wow! I ate it all. It's favors with all the accompaniment s where expertly paired: salty, smokey, Britney, sweet, tangy, creamy, what am I missing there? It blew me away! Then onto my main course, the sweetbreads...it defies description. It melted in my mouth and was easily on of the best things I have ever eaten. The service was spot on, the interior, the lighting (dim, how I like it), everything was perfect. I was dining alone while traveling and yet with the staff so easy to talk to, in both French and English! I felt like I was in good company. Do not miss this restaurant, I am so glad I serependitiously made it here. What luck!More

This restaurant was recommended by friends living in Trois-Rivieres. We didn't want pub food and I was specifically looking for seafood. My seafood dishes were really tasty and well presented. The waitress was attentive and very pleasant. I highly recommend it.

We had dinner in this restaurant that was recommended by our hotel and we were not disappointed. We took red tuna which was very tasty and some pastas in a very original sauce. The price is quite high (50 $ per person minimum) but it...is worth it if you are looking for good quality food. I can recommend it.More
