Excellent meal in lower town Quebec. For those who are not used to French culinary dishes and may be squeamish at the thought of an entire restaurant serving pretty much only rabbit, don't worry because it basically tastes like chicken. No gaminess, no need for heavy sauces to mask the taste. I had the rabbit and duck pour deux, and... More

My husband and I made a point to have lunch here based on all of the excellent Trip Advisor reviews we had read. It was as good or better even than the reviews. Everything was perfect from the beautiful outdoor patio where we ate to the delicious rabbit pie that we shared (serving sizes are generous) to our delightful waitress.... More

We had a recommendation from friends not to miss this restaurant. It's location is very nice, the terrasse has a nice view of a little 'place publique'. Our waitress was very good, friendly with the kids, suggested different plates and some nice wine. The signature dish is a shared plate for 2, with duck and rabbit, foie gras, rillettes, salad,...

Had dinner with a group of seven - definitely wise to book for a larger group as this charming restaurant is small and it was very busy. They were turning people without reservations away all evening. However, service was friendly and attentive. All the dishes we had were excellent. The various rabbit dishes were all a big hit with our... More

A phenomenal breakfast for two in a quaint courtyard in Old Quebec. A really nice balance of warm, friendly service, rustic flavors, and authentic decor. Two thumbs up!

A wonderful meal and experience, There were four of us - two from Quebec City and two from Toronto who had a wonderful, and adventurous evening at La Lapin. We had a table on the beautiful terrace overlooking the parkette and enjoyed the various specialty dishes when a heavy rainstorm arrived, We were safe under the large awnings, and the... More

After reading countless reviews of this restaurant, I decided to give it a try myself, to see what the hype was all about. While it wasn't a terrible experience by any means, I was not at all satisfied, given the praise that the Lapin Saute has received from so many others. The service itself was great. We were promptly seated,... More

We dined at Lapin Saute in July. The restaurant is in a very charming spot in the heart of the old city of Quebec. The table they gave us was cozy and the restaurant itself is casual, very nice, and they have an outside seating area next to a little garden/park. There's not a bad seat in the house. Our... More

Although the place is in the middle of the touristic street, the food was very good. We had mix of rabbit,duck and foigras. Pricewise a bit on expensive side. Good impression overall.
