Pricey, but well worth it. I can't afford to go there often, but when we do it's a real treat. Always lots of fresh new items on the menu, and if you love crepes for dinner this is the place!

Just a minute off the Bowen Island ferry, is the Rustique Bistro, open 5 days a week. This bright Bistro was charmingly full of families of all ages. The menu of waffles, crepes and salads was combined with a large chalkboard of specials of the day. I had a vegetarian crepe and it was excellent. There were many gluten free options available. The side salad is a deal for the price and just the perfect accompaniement for the crepe. I noticed at the till a selection of locally sourced jams and jellies: a nice touch!

Really great food. Service attentive and laid back. This is a very special place, Welcomimg but not precious. We have gone back three times.

This is a very impressive little restaurant. The space is small and informal, the owners take great pride in the place, but most of all, the food is consistently great. The first time I had lunch I had the salad nicoise and was surprised that it was better than any I had in France. I've since been back and tried other items--such as the savoury crepes and have always been impressed. For the care taken with the menu, the price is reasonable.
Well worth the ferry trip over (it is a one minute walk to the ferry, so leave your car).

I've eaten all over the world and my measure is if I still have a smile on my face from the food the next day. The food was cooked perfectly and the atmosphere was very friendly. This truly is a terrific restaurant, and much more than you would expect from a small island. Worth the visit and will definitely be back.
