My wife had the sea bass and Eleanor the confit duck. Three starter, three mains, a bottle of muscadet and coffee all for... More

Rustique never fails to produce the goods. Whether we have pre-booked or just popped in on the off chance there is always a warm welcome, friendly staff and delicious food. Plenty of choice on the menu and the prices do not break the bank. Love the place and take all our friends there.

A very friendly place with a variety of eating options. We've been to the Richmond, North Yorkshire one also. Both are authentically French restaurant with a modern touch. Good value.

Been back here, time and time again, both in a large group and as a couple. Excellent food, great value for money and lovely authentic atmosphere. Make sure you book or you'll be disappointed.

Always excellent value for money here and the Castlegate branch has just reopened after being extended. Still kept to the French theme so not much has changed in the main restaurant, and that's good! We loved the decor as it was and that has carried into the refurbishment. Food, as always, very good. You will need to book on an... More

Rustique is one of our favourite places to eat in York. Since our last visit in December the place has been expanded somewhat. New entrance with stairs leading to seating for a further 60 guests with bar and kitchen extending over the two shops below In Castelgate. As we were seated close to the front entrance we were very aware... More

Been for an evening meal a few times. Always busy, even mid week. Great atmosphere , lovely food and good value for money. Went for lunch one day and totally opposite. Glad I went on an evening as if I hadn't I wouldn't have returned. Didn't think much of the food at all. If you go, visit on an evening!

We went there for my mother in laws 60th. We hid presents behind the bar which the staff were more than happy to do. They even stored then for us after they were opened so we could enjoy our meals without clutter. I had the garlic snails for a starter which I'd never had before they were delicious. I then... More

Having passed this restaurant on many occasions we decided to try it out. The only thing that disappointed us is that we had not been before! The food was excellent and the staff extremely helpful and pleasant. Very good value also. We shall certainly be repeating the experience.
