This is a bright and friendly restaurant. Perhaps not the place for a quiet meal but if you enjoy good food at a reasonable price and a French-style bistro then this could be the place for you.

Ambience/Decor: Superb intimate atmosphere in the downstairs area of the restaurant, with French-style artwork surrounding the restaurant. Busy at the time of our leaving but the tables were not too close together. Cleanliness: Very clean bathrooms and restaurant. Food: We went for starters and mains, with both courses being spot on. My kebabs and pork belly were faultless. Some of... More

My wife and I visited Monday 13th March, for a romantic meal for two, we were really surprised how large the dining area is downstairs, fantastic atmosphere and intimate setting with superb food and service. Would recommend you book in advance especially at weekend as even on a Monday evening it was quite busy.

We dropped in for a booked meal on Thursday evening. Having been there a couple of times we were known to some of the staff there. We recieved a good welcome and set to ordering. The team were very helpful in ensuring we got what we wanted. The food was great and more plentiful than you might expect at this... More

We have eaten at Castlegate Rustique many times, the food and service have been very good. Whilst at the other end of town (York is not that large really) we tried the Lendal. Again a limited menu but we both found dishes to satisfy us. The wine was reasonable and arrived with a friendly smile. This is an efficient establishment... More

Visited with a group of friends All opted for the 2 course for £15 definitely worth it Would not be worthy of the standard menu pricing though. Service was good Atmosphere is pleasant Portions are great Just lacking a little flavour

In the past I've been guilty of thinking that a set price menu on a Saturday night will result in a drop in quality. Not at Rustique! The food was superb and staff were great as well. Can't wait to return.

We had a three course dinner in the restaurant. The meals were rushed in front of us on a pace that was way too fast. It was quite impossible to enjoy a nice, peaceful dinner and relax among the food and the wine when everything was pushed in front of you in such a speed. When we tried to comment... More
