Inspirational gain mushrooms on brioche and a fantastic duck breast with dauphinois. Wine wasn't excellent for a French restaurant but agreeable pinot noir was selected. As the title suggests the ambience could be cosy or cramped, imagine the weather and your company will determine this.
Rustique Lendal is a hugely credible alternative.

Came upon here by chance whilst looking for somewhere for a quick break.
Lovely waitress, sorry no name, and a really nice teak baguette with real, perfectly cooked, steak. Nice wine-perfect, then back to the shops!!
Recommended.

We booked our table for 3pm Sat two days in advance. I'd heard it gets really busy.
We opted for three courses from the set menu which was a bargain. Lots of choice. The food was lovely. Staff were friendly and the service was quick as it was pretty quiet. The only one thing I could fault was the fries with my steak were REALLY salty. I'd most definitely eat here again though.

Our first visit last evening, we heeded other reviewers advice and booked the day before and thank goodness we did, this is a popular place and we saw the the staff continually turn away walk in customers.

We opted for the fixed menu which is varied with plenty of choice for all three courses. When it arrived it was of good quaintly and hot.

Overall the ambience was nice and we weren't rushed through the meal, our food was served in a timely and wholly appropriate manner.... Well done Rustique, we shall return next time we visit York

We ate at Rustique as four adults and a child on a Friday evening. The place was packed and the atmosphere was excellent. Service throughout the meal was great. We started with a shared mussels in white wine and garlic and it was the best I have had for a long time. Mains were pork belly and loin (x2), Cod, lamb and duck. My pork was excellent with both cuts beautifully cooked, full of flavour and with a great rich jus. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their mains and the dauphinoise potatoes were acclaimed as the best ever! An excellent bottle of red wine and a very reasonable price perfectly complemented the meals. The quality of the food was fantastic and for the prices Rustique are charging there cannot be better value in York (or elsewhere for that matter!). This was a wonderful experience and I only regret we haven't been before!
