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.

We fell into the Jumping Rabbit on Wednesday night by chance and such a surprise. I had the French Onion soup followed by the Rabbit Cassoulet which was very good. Seemed to be a favorite of the restaurant for that evening as well. Our server, who I did not catch the name was excellent as well.

If I were a local, I would be back. If I return to Quebec City, I would be back.

Only stopped for coffee. Comfortable terrace with shade. Service was very good. A busker in the garden next door was a bonus. I was also attracted to the flower pot decor and use of rusty garden tools!! Go and see for yourself..

We stopped here for lunch in the Old Town area in May and ate on their patio. The three of us shared the Tout Lapin Tout Canard (Everything Rabbit, Everything Duck). A lot of food! It came as a tray of rabbit and duck leg confit, rabbit rillettes, duck sausage, duck foie gras, smoked duck breast.It also came with delicious cheese, bread, and green salad. All were very tasty. The service was paced similar to European restaurants - no hovering so you can enjoy your meal and conversation without frequent interruptions. Relax, enjoy the food and the Old Town atmosphere.

When we're in Quebec, this is one of our "go to" restaurants for dinner - it is rustic French cuisine, always exceptional! With a name like Le Lapin, of course, the rabbit is particularly good, but other entrees shine as well (my husband loves their pork!) and starters such as their French Onion soup. The wait staff is outstanding - they are always friendly, professional, and a great team! The option to sit outside on the patio in this quaint restaurant should be considered if the weather permits -- great for people watching along the Rue du Petit-Champlain... Annabelle, our waitress for this last dinner, was so warm and friendly that we felt like we'd made a new family member - Happy 30th Birthday, Annabelle! Would recommend this restaurant highly.

The patio here is worth the visit. It's incredible. We only stopped in for an afternoon snack as we were very intrigued by the rabbit poutine. It was VERY good. But the service on the patio was just ok (little personality, no recommendations, and forgot our drink order). Pricey too. Definitely had better experiences elsewhere in QC.
