The food was very good but the terrace very small and the tables close together. Very hard to get in without a reservation. The food was worth it though.

Was leary of trying the rabbit poutine but glad I did. It was delicious. Tender rabbit, fresh cheese curd, fries, and garlic thyme gravy. A nice savory appetizer. Also enjoyed the cheese fondue with a glass of pinot noir. Great little find. Busy as it...More

Try the lapin poutine. It is a taste sensation and comes with a choice of sauce. Everything is thoughtfully prepared here. The cocktails are great and accompany the food well. Street musicians serenaded us while we had lunch. The service was attentive without being over...More

A perfect, beautiful terrace in the evening, great food and drinks. Certainly had the old port mood. Had a small dish of rabbit of course and wine and people watched. Was fabulous.

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.
