I made a reservation based on trip advisor reviews claiming this place was Number 1 in Glasgow. I had dinner on a short business trip to Glasgow. Small cozy restaurant with nice ambience, however food is terrible. For starter, I had the prawns with chorizo and various beans. Presentation was very poor. It was like they dumped it on the...

A cosy and intimate restaurant that serves quality food with service to match. We booked having read the reviews on Tripadvisor and it exceeded our expectations. We have eaten in quality establishments many times but what sets this apart is the ambience along with fine food and service - all for an extremely reasonable price. Thank you for a superb... More

Recently dined in Number 16 for the first time and found this to be a very enjoyable experience. We were welcomed to our table and looked after by staff throughout our meal.

Went here on Tuesday with my partner for a birthday dinner after seeing such great reviews and we weren't disappointed. The service was great and the food was amazing. The desserts were the only thing we weren't that keen on but they were well made, it was maybe just a case of trying something not to our taste. The first... More

Atmosphere in the restaurant is nice enough and staff "lovely", but absent minded. Starters are cheesy : an anonymous mix of exotic taste and Scottish fish. Mains are better. An insignificant restaurant that want be posh. An expensive bill is not the only way!!!
