Booked a few weeks in advance and were looking forward to eating here after good reviews, unfortunately the meal was nothing special. Within a minute or so of the order being taken out came our starters, Soup and Crayfish and prawn mango salad & chilli. Soup was just warm, my wifes salad was fairly tasteless with tiny ex frozen prawns... More

My wife and I have been to York on a short break for the last two years and we were very lucky to find this restaurant on our first trip. What attracted us initially was the quality and variation to their menu and we were not disappointed. This year we tried the set menu, what value for money! The staff... More

Second time eating at this restaurant - we stumbled across it last year and really enjoyed our meal so didn't want to miss out again on our yearly Christmas shopping trip. We booked a week in advance as we know it gets busy. We ate off the set menu - excellent value. I had the French noon soup to start... More

We were recommended Rustique for the set menu, the food was nice but the service was pretty average. When we arrived and sat down the waiter plonked the menu's down without a word, we then had a wait a while for someone to come back to take our order, not offer any drinks before hand. House wine was awful!

Having eaten in many 5 star restaurants it does take a lot to impress me. I am one of those nightmare customers who demands the best. However, on my most recent visit to Rustique, I was actually blown away by the attentiveness of service, standard of food and quality of dining experience. The place was packed to the rafters and...

We had eaten in the hotel for most evenings and fancied a change. On a wet cold Tuesday night in York we struggled to find a table for two in Rustique - its charm and food are so popular. The atmosphere was warm and friendly and staff were very helpful and pleasant. The food on offer was wide ranging, good... More

What a find this place is. Arrived without a reservation, probably not advisable, & it was really busy. Thankfully we got a table. Loads of choice on the menu & a fantastic choice of wines. For the quality & quantity of food that we got, it was an absolute bargain for £14.95 for 2 courses. Excellent service & a great... More

Group of 7 (with one child) visited for dinner. We booked this in advance as we knew everywhere would be busy on a Saturday. Only one person had been before so we were all relying on them! The ambiance was lovely, all the staff were friendly. So brilliant that they have their deals on all day every day. £15 for... More
