Description: 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.

We were looking for a place that didn't serve the usual chips with everything, chips with pizza, chips with pies etc and we found this lovely place. Someone had actually tried to do a slightly different menu and it made a refreshing change. We had vegetarian crepe and a plate of fruits de mer. The restaurant is quite spacious inside but we sat in the little covered courtyard which was very nice indeed. Friendly, helpful waiting staff too. Its not exactly a hidden gem but it is not situated immediately on the street so look out for it.

It's worth finding this restaurant off a couple of narrow lanes in the centre of Richmond. The menu had a wide variety of choices and the food was excellent. The service was brisk and efficient - and nicest of all, the bill at the end of the evening was very reasonable.

Very disappointing. The chef must have had the weekend off and the pot washer cooking in their place. Total amateur ! Meal can only be described as terrible, badly cooked, messily presented and tasteless. This is not acceptable restaurant behaviour in 2018.

Needless to say we and our family and friends will not be back.

This place is the busiest restaurant in Richmond and not by chance.
Food is very good quality which is presented well on quality “rustic” crockery. Service efficient and polite without being too much. Well priced with large and quality wine selection. Venue quirky and unique.
Rustique is often imitated, never replicated!
