The food, ambiance and staff were so lovely. If you like rabbit, this is THE place to go. A quaint location, very warm and welcoming. the dishes we ordered were not only delicious but nicely presented and reasonably priced. Rabbit with 2 sauces, warm rabbit salad, a delicious cheese plate. Mmmmm. Excellent sangria!

Something has changed, not just the menu. We have happily visited this little cozy place in the lower old town for the past ten years but this time it was just disappointing. While still full of charm, the food simply was mediocre .

Hi, we are really sorry to read that, be sure we did not reduce the food quality and we always have the same high standards after 25 years. Unfortunately, a mistake can happen, but if you tell to your waiter he has all necessary tools to make the corrections and changes to make you happy. I would like to have... More

We like to try different foods than we normally eat when we travel. Le Lapin offers of course, rabbit.. but also duck and then the regulars. We were not disappointed, the duck sausage was probably the biggest hit at the table, along with the smoked duck breast but the rabbit was very moist and tasty. The servings are perfect for... More

This little gem is located right in the busy area, but the friendly waitstaff and unique menu make it special. We ordered the cheese board, served with blueberry compote and mixed nuts, which was amazing. Next, I got the tagliatelle with rabbit, so many flavors and great portion. My mother got the rabbit pot pie, also delicious. My father got... More

Make sure to make a reservation. It is a small and intimate restaurant. Great food. Fabulous service. We had a wonderful celebratory meal here with family from across the country.

We were a group of 8 for breakfast and the food and service was amazing!!! I'm a big fan of egg bennidict and the ones I had at the Lapin Sauté are the best I have ever had!!! The staff was super friendly and the atmosphere wonderful.

We had a group of 9 there for dinner last Saturday and we all had excellent dishes. The staff and service were great. There was enough variety in the menu to please everyone and the chocolate dessert was delicious!! The place is somewhat small so reservations for any larger group is a good idea. The onion soup appetizer was incredible.

We chose this restaurant based on other reviews and we really wanted to try the rabbit dishes. We ate here for a late lunch so it was not crowded and we were seated immediately. We ordered the rabbit cassoulet and shared it. Our waiter, David, was attentive and served us efficiently and with a sense of humor. The cassoulet was... More
