Having eaten in many 5 star restaurants it does take a lot to impress me. I am one of those nightmare customers who demands the best. However, on my most recent visit to Rustique, I was actually blown away by the attentiveness of service, standard of food and quality of dining experience. The place was packed to the rafters and...

We had eaten in the hotel for most evenings and fancied a change. On a wet cold Tuesday night in York we struggled to find a table for two in Rustique - its charm and food are so popular. The atmosphere was warm and friendly and staff were very helpful and pleasant. The food on offer was wide ranging, good... More

What a find this place is. Arrived without a reservation, probably not advisable, & it was really busy. Thankfully we got a table. Loads of choice on the menu & a fantastic choice of wines. For the quality & quantity of food that we got, it was an absolute bargain for £14.95 for 2 courses. Excellent service & a great... More

Group of 7 (with one child) visited for dinner. We booked this in advance as we knew everywhere would be busy on a Saturday. Only one person had been before so we were all relying on them! The ambiance was lovely, all the staff were friendly. So brilliant that they have their deals on all day every day. £15 for... More

I was only staying in York for one night, and this restaurant was recommended by a friend living in the area. There were two floors and the service was fine with a good choice of food on the menu for which the quality was good. The only thing I might say, is that it was a bit 'noisy', but that... More

At a special celebratory lunch today we were made very welcome by Manager Laurent. All four of us chose different dishes for starters and main courses, all delicious. My husband particularly enjoyed his boeuf bourgignon, one of our guests appreciated the celeriac remoulade (not often seen on menus in UK!) with his salmon fishcakes. Service was spot on, just the...

Visiting York, Rustique is a must the staff are friendly the food, described as rustic French, is fantastic. Menu caters for all tastes. Best to book as this is a very busy restaurant, especially on weekend. This our fourth visit and definitely won't be the last.

Have eaten at lots of places in York, but this place outstrips them all. Next to ZiZis, you could easily walk past it, I'm glad we didn't. We had the set menu for £14.95 for 2 courses and a very palatable house red, the service was prompt and friendly and the food delicious, the sauces with the main courses were... More
