We dined there while in Quebec for the holidays and loved it. Obviously they have quite a few offerings featuring rabbit. We tried a few of their specialties and loved it. Nice, small restaurant with a lot of charm.

My two sons and I each had rabbit for lunch. We had stew, poutine, and rabbit pie. The place was cozy and quick. The service was wonderful and the food was amazing. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

What can one say... Early Sunday afternoon after mass at Notre Dame Victoires in the walled city. Outside dining and a chill in the air. Beautiful bottle of French Bordeaux and a Rabbit Cassoulet with duck sausage to boot! We felt like it was 1750...LOL....More

Found this place on trip advisor. Great for a warming meal after an afternoon exploring the city. Located on a cobbled street surrounded by pokey shops and places to get a pre/ post dinner drink. The restaurant feels like a family run business, very attentive...More

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.
