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.

Amazing Asian dishes in a French restaurant

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... read 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...

Went back three times. The lunch "plat du jour" was a fabulous deal and the food never disappointed!

Went there with my wife and a friend last Sunday. A great bistro-type meal with soup and entree and a very good bottle of Spanish white wine cost us 115 $ CAD, before taxes and tips. Very good service. Quiet spot. Desserts looked good, but we chose to go across the street and grab an ice cream dipped in chocolate... More

We dropped in for dinner and chose to sit on the outdoor deck as it was a lovely evening. We were provided with English menus which was very helpful as our French is pretty minimal. Nice prompt service, delicious beet salads and then we waited and waited and waited......much too long for our main courses, other tables who arrived after... More

i popped in for a quick lunch and ordered the fresh beet salad. It was quite good and the service was very fast. The restrooms were also very clean which is always a plus!

If you are looking for refined, tasty food and good value, the Intimiste is the best lunch choice in Lévis, no contest. The 15$ lunch menu, which changes every few weeks, is always excellent. They also have the best fries in Lévis. The décor in the lounge area is much nicer than the restaurant area.
