Reviews for Cafe Rustika

I was very excited to try this restaurant after seeing so many positive reviews online. My boyfriend and I ordered Kasespatzle and Nordsee Frikadellen. The Kasespatzle is cheesy but a bit over priced as it has no meat in it. The taste of the Nordsee Frikadellen is ok. The salad was too wet that it made the bottom of the patty too soggy to eat. We went on a very busy Saturday night and it took us 30 mins for the bread to come and almost an hour for our entrees so we were not full review
I was really excited to try this place. Born and raised in Germany. It was busy upon getting there. Luckily, there was a spot at the bar for me. There are about 6 booths, 1 table, and 2 hiop-tops. The bar can seat maybe 12 people next to each other. I ordered the Paulaner Hefe-Weizen, because, duh, best beer. I wanted to order jägerschnitzel mit pommes, but they don't offer fries, unfortunately. So I wanted to order the gurkensalat, but they were out of the cucumber salad. Instead, full review

Authentic German place with delicious food and beer. The veal schnitzel was tender and crispy with lots of flavor. The Black Forest cake was not too sweet but rich and full of flavor. The waitress was so friendly and we were called when our table was ready. I didn’t realize this gem was in Richmond and it reminds me of my grandmother’s German cooking. Can’t wait to go back!
