Location and contact

Take a stroll down Finkle Street, Richmond, and you'll discover a little piece of England that will remain forever French. Rustique restaurant opened its doors in 2009 offering traditional French cuisine amongst its Parisian-style surroundings. Transporting diners to the streets of Paris, with views of the Tower Eiffel and Arc de Triumph, diners can enjoy rustic French-style cuisine in amongst a busy, vibrant bistro atmosphere. In February 2016 the restaurant has undergone an extensive refurbishment! The A la carte, set menu & lunch menu offer a large and varied selection of meat and fish dishes cooked traditionally, using local products. Our carefully selected wine list, seeks to complement the dishes on offer, boasting a wide range of French and New World wines. Also concentrating our efforts on quality wines from an array of French regions and around the world to complement your food. As a result Rustique continues to be a favourite in the wide area amongst the residence and tourists. To experience exceptional 'service a la française' in the heart of England, visit Rustique.
