Rustique has closed down, probably a victim of the characterless chain restaurants at the recently opened Broad St Plaza, there is only so much money that can be spend on eating out in this town, glad I took the opportunity to eat there before it shut....

Excellent food, good wine,very good value, friendly and courteous staff. A hidden gem! Shame it was very quiet. It is difficult to get a table at La Rustique in York, the quality of food and service in Halifax is just as good, if not better. Maybe better advertising would bring in the crowds. (They wouldn't be disappointed).

Good food, excellent service and good value for money. The times we have been the restaurant has been quiet but this is a little gem in the heart of Halifax and should be busier than it is. Try it, you'll be surprised.

Went for the 1st time and we opted for the fixed price set menu. The food was of reasonable quality and was good value as it was the set menu, ordering a la carte the value wouldn't have been so impressive. It was virtually empty so the atmosphere was lacking and the service was disinterested. I would consider going back... More

Rustique is my favorite restaurant in Halifax by far; their portion sizes are more than generous, the food is lovely with great quality ingredients. The service is attentive and gracious. The wines are good quality and reasonable. I've never been disappointed and in all honesty my only criticism would be that the portions are too large!

Always go here for a work's night out and we always have a great meal. There is plenty of choice and the food is reasonably priced. Try the Moules they are wonderful.

Visited as have been to the york branch and enjoyed it. Wasn't very busy the night we went but the food and service were both spot on, had a bottle of inexpensive wine that was rather nice. Early Bird menu is excellent value. Definitely recommend.

We went for the early bird menu and weren't disappointed! Fantastic dishes with flair and good service, we were paid lots of attention by the friendly staff. I can't complain about the price, especially for the early. I will go again!

Went with friends. Very quiet as it was a Monday evening. The food and service were very good and we all enjoyed ourselves in spite of being virtually the only customers. Have been once before on a girls' night out on a Friday and not much busier, although then the food and service were good.

Visited this restaurant quite a few times. We opt for the 3 course meal for £15. Never had a bad meal and it is truly excellent value for money. Staff polite and very friendly.
