Quaintly situated in the heart of Old Levis, l'Intimiste is a sure-fire gourmet stop for anyone visiting the South shore. As suggested by its name, this reputable restaurant offers refined cuisine and service in a cozy and intimate atmosphere. The well-balanced menu is composed of game, fish, and sea food. On the second floor, a private room outfitted with multimedia equipment is ideal for any successful business lunch. The lounge side attracts a mainstream clientele in search of a contemporary menu or for a place for a drink amongst friends. With its stone walls and warm decor, the lounge offers a perfectly relaxed atmosphere. Greatly appreciated by many, l'Intimiste has become an essential establishment in Levis. Whether you are looking for an excellent lunch or an unforgettable supper, you will fall in love with l'Intimiste, and all at a reasonable price.

We arrived late in the evening and were immediately greeted by warm and friendly staff. This is a lovely restaurant with an inviting and intimate atmosphere. We were an eclectic party of four with diverse tastes, yet we were all quite happy with our meal selection, its quality and presentation. As for me, the Filet stir fry and strawberry cheese... More

We were very pleased with the quality of the meals. The chef shows good creativity in this "fusion" kind of restaurant. The prices are really reasonable. Had some issues with the service that was disorganised at the beginning: didn't offer drinks. Confused the people having sparkling water from regular. Came back 3 times in 5 minutes to take food order... More

It was our first time dining here. We were surprised to see several Asian entries on the menu. We ordered three Chinese dishes, duck, beef and chicken, and one linguine. There were all very tasty. The portion was right for me but not enough for a growing teenager like my son. The service was good and it was a pleasant... More

Everything was great for our dinner outdoors on their veranda, and the table d'hote was well priced. For this quality, you'd pay much more in Quebec City, and the location on Begin Street is really charming.

We spent the day struggling to communicate with anybody in this community, as we speak no French. We sat down at this restaurant exhausted, hungry, and with little confidence that we would be able to communicate what we wanted to eat. We were completely wrong. Immediately upon seating they asked if we wanted English menus, and then assigned us a... More

Good wine selection and quality food. Enjoyed the steak and roasted potatoes the most but the beetroot salad stood up to its reputation also.

Our lovely B&B hostess suggested this amazing restaurant, within walking distance of our most exquisite room. The waiter was patient and accommodating his generally good english to our horrid French. Lunch, a far, far cry from Toronto airport's Tim Hortons breakfast, included a flavourful, delicate snail preparation, a fresh and generous beet salad, a perfectly cooked salmon, and the rabbit...
