Overall we enjoyed our time at Lapin Saute. Great service with great local beer recommendation from our waiter. We love the Ephemere Pomme beer. Haddock appetizer was tasty, pork rib was superb too. However, the rabbit on platter and cassoulet was rather bland. Their duck...More

This place was recommended to us and did not disappoint. Great out door patio and good food. Pricy but delicious. I was lead to believe that most ingredients were locally farmed and were traditional recipes too!

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.
