Enjoyed our meal here Monday night and the tasty duck and rabbit dishes. The waitress was knowledgeable and helpful with food and wine pairings. The only disappointment was the maple creme brûlée- the crust was good but the custard was grainy. Our biggest issue was...More

This is a very beautiful little restaurant in the heart of Old Quebec city. Service and the wine list were outstanding. But for a restaurant with rabbit in it's name, it was by far the worse thing we had. We ordered the large mixed platter...More

We stopped for drinks, but had to order an appetizer due to their license. The poutine with rabbit was good and the table outside was nice, but drinks were barely alcoholic. Beer or wine would have been a better choice.

The magic of the Petit-Champlain district adds to the charm of the Lapin Sauté. By day, this pedestrian street comes alive with the sounds of chatter. By night, the lighting makes shadows dance on the walls of the street's historic houses.

Dining at the Lapin Sauté is akin to walking into a warm, quaint and cozy inns from the early 20th century. There is nothing better than sitting in the comfort of this small, friendly 32-seat restaurant where you're always welcomed with open arms. During the summer, the Lapin expands to 52 seats with its outdoor terrace and patrons flock here under the warm sun. In the winter, a fire warms your heart and soul as you discover local country products made and served like nowhere else.
