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.

Best spot in Quebec Citt

Tops in their game in our opinion and without the crowd in beautiful Levis. It's a small hike (a little uphill) if you have taken a ferry from Quebec City directly to Levis up to Avenue Begin where there are other interesting restaurants. You will also find a great view of Quebec City en route to... read more

I love going for lunch there as you get superior quality food at affordable price. Service staff are really professional. However, make sure to plan for at least a 90 minutes lunch as the place is usually full so it is hard to order, eat and leave in less than 90 minutes.

We decided that we HAD to take a ferry ride across that icy river tonight. We walked up the hill to find the 'town center' and stumbled upon this restaurant and what a nice surprise. This was the best meal we've had in our 9 day trip. I had the scallops and shrimp with the pasta side and everything was... More

This restaurant is considered by the locals as the best restaurant in town. I agree with them. Very nice ambiance, excellent service, and great food. Can be a bit pricy for dinner, but worth it if you feel like having an exçellent one. At lunch, prices are very correct. I do recommend it.

Dinner menu is just the right size, not too large, not too small and reflective of the province with pasta, fish, meat and game options. I had pan fried halibut with a curry coconut sauce and risotto. This was one of the best meals I have ever experienced. They offered a white wine, by the glass, that complimented the fish... More

TIP: make sure you have a reservation, its a very busy place! Food was well flavored with bold combinations that enhanced the overall food taste, friendly service. Their menu has a great variety of foods from past, to oriental, from fish to steak.

We ate here for dinner on a Friday night. My daughter had an excellent salmon tartare and my husband had a delicious cold salmon and rice salad. I had the Tao chicken which was just okay. In terms of atmosphere it is a formal restaurant with a patio. The staff did their job but no friendly bantering - perhaps because... More

If your staying in Quebec City, grab the walk on ferry to cross the St.Laurent. The quality of the food and the superb service staff will have you returning. Seafood was superb, the proteins were expertly prepared. You will not want to miss this gem in Levi Quebec!
