The location and the food was SO good. They have a grill cheese that uses 1608 cheese and something like apple sauce- it was memorable! It's busy (on the main strip) and very historic looking. At night there was live music just outside the door...More

It's been a few years since we last visited Le Lapin Saute in Quebec City Lower town and , once again, thoroughly enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere. As the name of the restaurant suggests, it's all about rabbit, although there are many other choices....More

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.
