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!

This place is a delight. Amazing diverse menu with fantastic food. Nice wine list and great ambiance. Like a chic bistro in a small town. So happy we found it! Also, wait in line across the street for the fabulous ice cream at the chocolate shop. You will not be disappointed by trying this restaurant. Great outdoor patio but inside... More

The atmosphere was good, the food was good, the service was good but found it a bit overprice. A vegetarian option was lacking on the menu chart.

This was a good restaurant for two out of three in our party. Reason being, there were virtually no vegetarian options on the menu. That member of the party had a tossed salad. Otherwise it is a very meat oriented menu. The other two members of the group had chicken and fish dishes which they found quite good.

The combination of good food, good wine, good service and attractive surroundings make an irresistible combination. I found this wonderful restaurant during a downpour a blessedly short distance from my B&B on Beau Sejour. It was about 1/2 full of folks engaged in lively conversations. My server promptly presented the eclectic menu filled with tempting choices. The wine list, while... More

Similar to Resto Delice but has a more romantic atmosphere. Food, service, choices, prices and friendly employees makes it worth to try. Save a little corner in your stomach and walk across the street to enjoy some special ice cream selection from Les Chocolats Favoris. Be prepare to wait in line a bit. It is a very popular place on... More

I was born in Lévis, but now live in Montreal. I return in Lévis regularly to visit my parents, but I rarely go to restaurants in this small town. My wife and I took my father there for his birthday, and we were all amazingly surprised by the quality of food. Each of our three-course meals were absolutely fantastic: both... More

My fiancee (and now wife) took me here a few years ago. We took the ferry across (in the dead of winter...btw....), then climbed up 130-135 steps, then walked further up the hill to the main street of Levis. L'intimiste is a very chic cafe with a lounge (where you can order from the bar or main dining room menu)... More

We went for dinner on a cold wet night and found the place smart but welcoming and warm. I had the classic steak and frites with the blue cheese sauce which was perfectly done. My boyfriend very much enjoyed his pasta with scallops. Service was fine though we didnt see the waiter much; as we had no starter it would... More
