Welcome to Rustique Restaurants

* Announcement * After 8 years of serving our magnificant customers, we are saddened to announce that our Lendal venue is now permanently closed. We would like to thank everyone who has supported the venue and rest assured our Castlegate venue will re-open as normal once the restrictions are lifted.


Established in 2004 in the former Francois Restaurant Bistro, Rustique specialises in rustic French cooking in a busy, vibrant upbeat Bistro atmosphere. Offering a large and varied selection of traditionally cooked, locally sourced meat and fish dishes, we pride ourselves on giving our customers a first class, French-inspired dining experience.

Our Castlegate venue is perfectly located in the heart of York's atmospheric city centre. Whether you've dined with us before or you're coming to experience Rustique for the first time, we guarantee you an exquisite culinary experience that will leave your tastebuds tingling.

Our delicately crafted offer a large and varied selection of dishes and a range of wines, carefully selected to complement your food.
