Best lunch we had in Quebec City

Stopped here for lunch last week while vacationing in Quebec. It's on the lower road under the Fontenac. We had sandwiches and pasta. Great. Service was also excellent. Inside or outside seating. Inside is very quaint and casual. Very reasonable.

This restaurant came highly recommended to us and we might never have gone had it not been. The restaurant was bustling even early on a Wednesday evening. The service was great - prompt without being intrusive. The food was excellent. We would definitely have gone back had we been in QC more than a few days.

So good we were here three times during a recent trip to Quebec City. Rabbit is the calling card but other dishes and salads were all excellent. A truly delicious cassoulet. Service was very friendly and competent. We miss this place already.

This restaurant specializes in rabbit dishes. If you don't like rabbit -- or don't want to try it -- you should probably look elsewhere. If, on the other hand, you do like rabbit, this place is perfect! Rabbit in mustard sauce and rabbit pie were both delicious and served in generous proportions with potatoes and vegetables.

A cool, old, little casual restaurant that just seems so authentically European. We stopped just to have a couple wines, talk and watch people. To sit outside we had to order food, but that doesn't take an argument for us. Well...lapin is rabbit (ah, that's what the pictures of rabbits are about) - guess what's on the menu? Delicious (really)... More

We selected Lapin Sauté from our guide's recommendations for our first lunch in Québec. Salade de saumon, filet de doré, ... Excellent! Staff is great - short eye contact is often sufficient to make yourself understood.

I hear great complements about the dish and decided to try it and I'm happy I did., creamy, salty and slightly crunchy it's a true representation of the french Canadian crusing. The service was on point and the restaurant's ambient is relax. I enjoyed my visit. P.s try the moulin rouge cocktail, it was delicious.

In the both times that we went there for lunch we really an joy the warm full way of the serving staff, the delicious food, either rabbit base or pork based, the local wine , that despite being young, we're very tastefull, and to finish with high note the desserts were great.

The Lapin Saute is the cutest restaurant, inside and out. I had never tried poutine and felt I just had to before I left Canada. Glad I tried it here--yummy gravy with pieces of rabbit, plus cheese curds. Delish!
