This is a very popular place in the Lower Town of Old Quebec. Had a short wait for a table at lunch time. When the weather is nice, outdoor seating is available and recommended. Otherwise there is limited space indoors. We had lunch specials of the day. My rabbit leg dish was delicious. Nice wine choices as well as pints... More

The menu mainly consists of rabbit and duck; offered as a pate, terrine or an entree. So it's not quite for everyone, but if you have a change to stop by do so.

The place is really beautiful for lunch and much more for dinner. We preferred to sit outside in the garden. Service is nice and the food was ok.

Eggs Benedict with rabbit. So good. Very friendly staff, restaurant located in heart of petit Champlain. Felt like I was in a country side restaurant in France.

We loved it here. A small, quaint restaurant with great food and decent prices in the old city. What more can you ask? Oh yeah, gluten free options! So glad we were able to eat here on our anniversary trip.

We got the huge special, it was good aside from the lamb being very overdone. But if you want some very non-threatening French cuisine in Old Quebec it's much less of a tourist trap than some of the others. Get lots of Rabbit, Duck and cheese.

My husband surprised me with dinner at Le Lapin Sauté after a food tour guide recommended it to him for a special meal and it was wonderful! You really have to make a reservation though as the dining room is very small- he was lucky to be able to make a reservation for the same day when he went into... More

We went in the middle of November on a Saturday night at 9 pm and had to wait for a table. The seating is a small room, so make a reservation. The staff is friendly, the food is great. The prices fair. Enjoy! We had duck and grilled cheese. The cheese fondu starter was great.,

My daughter and I had a 6 p.m. reservation and had to wait outside for about 10 minutes while another large party got seated. It was lightly drizzling and ...maybe one of reservation pagers would have helped as we had to be in sight of the hostess standing in the doorway every so often waiting to let people in. But...

walked in , without reservations and staff juggled a few later reservations around to accommodate us. Wonderful service, delightful food (duck/rabbit) that is not customary to many restaurants outside of Quebec. you will not be disappointed and recommend you reserve ahead.
