It's a while since I ate at this Byres Road restaurant, simply because it's difficult to get a last minute booking. However everyone must have been glued to the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony when we walked by because we managed to get a table! Young lady who served us was delightful and, although we were only hungry enough for a... More

Out of this world food & service without the snobby pretentious atmosphere that most first class dining establishments have! from the little homemade bread rolls to the clean well presented food we had it has most definitely been one of the best places i have eaten in Glasgow. We will be back with bells on!

When I went to this restaurant, and also at the moment I am writing, this was the number one restaurant in glasgow city according to trip advisor. I did not expect such a small place, but this was not a problem: we found a table and we sat immediately. Just after the order, we were served some bread and sauce... More

Earlier this month whilst visiting Scotland we made reservations to have dinner here with some friends. Our reservation was made based on recent excellent reviews on a number of sites - we had a fabulous dining experience! This place is small and despite that has a really good feel about it and atmosphere. We were welcomed when we arrived and... More

My wife and I were fortunate enough to get tickets for last night's Commonwealth Games opening ceremony in the Celtic Park Stadium in Glasgow. Prior to the event which commenced at 8.00pm we had dinner in the Number 16 restaurant. Fortunately we reserved a table well in advance as the restaurant was fully booked. My wife and I both had...

They food was excellent, unusual take on lamb and pork which was really refreshing in terms of the accompaniments in particular. Can't really complain about the starters and main food as it was to such a high std. The presentation was lovely and it was all very tasty. That said, there was a hair in my food but it didn't...

I went here since it was #1 on Trip Advisor's site. Staff was very welcoming & accommodating, super attentive & friendly, I give that portion 5 stars. Food was very nice & fresh. My Fig salad starter was artistic, but not mind-blowing. Gnocchi was inventive, but way over salted. I found the menu limited in choices of things I wanted... More

Perfectly cooked, tasty food. For me Number 26 is... I was going to say pound for pound, but I actually think it's simply the best restaurant in Glasgow. Service is impeccable as well. The waitress was very friendly, efficient and professional. If any wee delays were anticipated, she let us know (I stress wee delays - if a big table... More
