Description: 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.

Just had dinner based on the Tripadvisor reviews. We weren't disappointed. The rabbit and duck plate for 2 was fabulous. Service was excellent & waiters were very friendly even though our French was very rusty. This place is very popular so you'll need to get there before 6 or you'll probably not get a table. We'll be back!

A wonderful bistro located in Lower Town, which specializes in rabbit and duck. My husband and I shared the “sampler platter” which offers a tasting of rabbit and duck as well as cheeses, salad, pâté and pickles. I recommend the maple crème brulée for dessert, it is divine. The service is always excellent. We dine here every time we are in Quebec City.

This was our best meal of our trip. Nice atmosphere in Old Quebec, interesting (but not too exotic), satisfying selections. Actually the best serving of rabbit I've ever eaten. Very nicely done and not at all over-priced.

Just get there early - you'll have to line up!

Cosy, wonderful atmosphere, freindly and professioal staff. They know their rabbit (obviously), and have amazing 'Lapin Saute - sauteed rabbit liver and kidney'...also lapin rillette is wondeful. Prices are good for the quality, wine and drinks are also reasonable - and the location is perfect - along the cobbled street of Petit Champlain. A great place for lunch.

We don't get to eat rabbit very often (a first for me, actually), but the poutine -- a traditional Quebecois meal according to our server -- was very good. The atmosphere was pleasant, with lots of families in for lunch. My son says the hamburger was awesome, and he is a connoisseur of burgers.
