Shared a simple lunch here, mainly to soak up some shade in the nice atmosphere. Single plate is a nice size share for mid-day meal if you're not a big eater, or just want to try rabbit for the first time.

My companion was on the hunt for exceptional Poutin (fries with gravy and cheese) and this is where we found it. It was a bit over-cheesed, but that was easily remedied after it reached the table. The gravy was delicious, really stood out with bits of rabbit meat and very flavorful. I wouldn't venture here if you're a vegetarian, it's... More

Why that place has so many good reviews, I do not know. I think in all my visits to my favorite city so far I have had only two sub par meals. One was at Le Astral, where my friend John, who was bound to a wheel chair, and I had greasy over cooked quail and rabbit that was masqued... More

After arriving in Québec city (rainy day) and going around we asked for a table, and had to wait 15 minutes outside the restaurant (under the rain). The food was plain...nothing was special, not even the tasting mix with a bit of everything. Search for something else if you want to eat well!!

Reading so many positive reviews on t/a spurred my interest in trying Le Lapin for lunch. I have eaten rabbit twice before and enjoyed it. My husband had not eaten rabbit previously, but was willing to try it. Located in the heart of the Petit Champlain, the restaurant is quaint, olde world and charmingly decorated and has a terrace for... More

This restaurant was quite busy on the night of our visit. After being informed of a moderate wait, we decided to stay based on the advice of a local couple who told us they were regulars. The wait was shorter than we expected, and was well worthwhile. The server was very helpful and pleasant. Food quality was excellent, and our... More

My wife and I eat here whenever we are in Quebec City. Excellent ambience, especially on the terrace or an outdoor table on the street side, with a street musician, almost always playing, just a few yards away. The food is not only excellent but unique. Beers from the Île d'Orleans micro-brewery are definitely worth tasting. The service is friendly... More

I love good rabbit and duck. My wife and I had them for two with legs, sausages, foie gras, pate, crusty bread, pickled things and sweet onion relish. Oh, my. On top of that, we had the most amazingly friendly and attentive server. We'll be back.

Before visiting Quebec I had never tried rabbit. While in Quebec I realized it was a common item on the menu. I had the rabbit pie which was delicious and I would definitely try it again. Big portions. The atmosphere was nice but there is not very much seating inside; most is on the terrace. When we went it was... More
