Visited recently with family. Food was delicious. Good varied menu.Plenty of choice. Only problem is this restaurant is so cold. We requested a table away from the door butwere offered a table by the door! Next choice was further into restaurant which was equally cold. Moved downstairs, cold downstairs too albeit slightly less cold. Pity, as not comfortable when cold... More

I would definitely recommend booking in advance, I rang the same day and the only time they had left was 9pm which was fine with us anyway. We were seated upstairs which was nice and... More

Found this place while out walking around York. The food and wine were great and very reasonably priced. We had the sharing plater of cured meats and cheese which came with bread, very well presented and a very large portion. My wife had the fish which she said was beautiful. I had a steak, which was cooked to perfection, however... More

A friend of mine recommended this restaurant. So we thought might as well give it a try as a late vday meal. It had great atmosphere and service, we was provided with some bread and olives as a taster/starter, which was good. We ordered the duck leg and rack of lamb. The rack of lamb was perfectly cooked pink and... More

Food was good, but a pork belly which was all fat and no meat had to be sent back. The other pork belly ordered was fine but the staff were very off hand about it and said pork belly is fatty. Replacement meal vastly improved, but here the customer is not always right it seems. On this basis I would... More

A regular haunt for Sunday lunch when in York. Pleasant surrounding, good service and excellent food. The set menu is always good value and has more than enough variety to cater for most tastes.

We have eaten in Rustique a number of times, both at lunch and early evening, as a couple and with the kids. The food is excellent and we have always had very good service. The menu has enough variety to satisfy even kids who are being a bit fussy. Booking is usually required on an evening.

We live in York and I had visited Rustique several times with work, yet this was my partner's first visit. We dropped in just before 8pm without a booking, just on the offchance- however, the staff were kind and attentive, finding us a table for two within a few minutes. Drinks arrived speedily and the waiters were friendly and helpful.... More
