Food at Den Rustikke is fantastic. My wife and I've been a few times and have had the set menu and the rib-eye steaks. Food is cooked to perfection with grounded creativity.

Limited menu but nice and clean place. The tables are close together so do not expect to have private conversations.

Den Rustikke offers primarily French influenced cuisine and does it well. While the menu is small and entirely prix fixe we very much enjoyed our meal there. Portions are fair also. Our mains were a sensational poussin dish. Highly recommend.

I had an outstanding home-made soup - different from any I've ever tasted,... More
