“Amazing restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

We had the 3 course set lunch which was brilliant and well presented, the service was first class. You do need to book as the place gets very busy. Definately a place to return to on our next visit.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

We went to this restaurant whilst in York for our 30th anniversary, called in at 6pm on the Sunday and they were able to fit us in, and thank god they did , the food was fantastic, we ate off the set 2course menu which was £12.95 , we thought we would just try it after reading the reviews and it is well worth visiting , the waiter on the first night really looked after us and we thought we'd book for the night after, they only had one table available at8.30 and we were not disappointed, the waiter from the previous night turned out to be the head chef and he personally brought us our food and bought us a drink which I thought was a very nice thing to do. Will def visit this restaurant when back in York and would def recommend to everyone .

“excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

We were in York for a weekend and had booked Rustique in advance having read the wonderful reviews.
The atmoshere is excellent, the waiters are friendly and the good is very very good and very fairly priced.
I had the scallop starter and the pork main which were both delicious, well cooked, wonderfully present.
Although we were both quite full we didn't want to leave without trying their cheese selection which was beautiful and which we washed down with two great glasses of port.
The whole meal for two came to £77 (with a nice bottle of Loire wine) - an absolute steal considering the quality of the food and the lovely atmosphere.
I would definitely recommend this lovely little restaurant.

“High expectations, but...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

We found this restaurant as being in the first place for York so decided to book a table for a special occasion, however it did not live up to the hype. A mediocre restaurant at best. Really simple disapointing food. Okay service and a somewhat decent atmosphere. Sadly not worthy to be one of the top restaurants in York.
