Perfect food - attention to detail is what makes this restaurant a real pleasure -tiny kitchen turns out remarkable dishes - recommend unreservedly - would suggest making a reservation as very popular and very small

Enjoyed an excellent lunch here. It is a very small restaurant but they were very welcoming even though we arrived a little early. The set 2 or 3 course lunch is extremely good value. We had a ham hock and fish cake starter and both were excellent. As were the mains; a sea bream risotto and chicken with root vegetables.... More

Iv been to no. 16 quite a few times and I'm never disappointed. Good food, nice service and although they have the odd cramped table, I suppose it can't be helped given the size of the place. Great for a romantic meal. Will be back!

Yes the place is small but this means you can hold a conversation and guaranteed great service. Now for the food.....awesome...every course. I had the fish cake and the hubby... More

We went to no 16 on Saturday night for my fathers birthday. Even though the menu was not extensive, it was still hard to decide exactly what we were having as every option looked fantastic. We weren't disappointed when our food arrived, every course was as beautifully presented and as tasty as we had expected. The staff were very attentive... More
