Very good

Had a delicious meal here. All the dishes were excellent but stand out was the perfectly cooked halibut on the main course. The atmosphere was informal and service was friendly but efficient. Price was good value for the quality of food. Would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.

We love eating in smaller, cosier venues seperate away from brands and franchises and this was top of my list of places to try during a short stay in Glasgow recently. We had a wonderful meal with incredibly tasty and well plated food. The staff were attentive and welcoming. If we are ever back in Glasgow we will definitely come... More

Cosy little restaurant. We had a lovely meal. Good service, the staff were most helpful and polite. Would recommend the roast chicken it was yummy. Reasonable cost too for the food & their wine. It was our first visit and we look forward to returning. thank you.

What a lovely place we selected on our trip to Glasgow, I will definitely recommend this to family and friends. We received a warm welcome from Joel who was very personable as well as helpful and attentive throughout. We decided a light starter would suffice and had some beautiful olives accompanied by the taste sensation of cheese shortbread and delicious... More

Oh my! Went for a weekend away in Glasgow and wanted a Friday night nice meal out. I'd briefly lived in the West End of Glasgow 10 years prior and was looking for a nice restaurant in that part of town. Based on the reviews, I booked Number 16. It's a really quaint restaurant, a short walk from the underground... More

The place is so nice, very intimate. Everything is really good and the price are reasonable if you think to the high quality of food. I've tried several thing: meet, fish, vegetarian dishhes, different dessert and I was never disappointed. Wine is really good as well, though expensive. The staff is also very friendly and welcoming.

We had a bottle of Processco priced at £20 which is really reasonable, and are whole bill came to about £55 which is great given... More

Great food in a cosy restaurant. The Lamb starter was excellent. Combination of foods on the plate was interesting. Only drawback was we were waiting a little longer for our food than you would usually but the wait was worth it.
