Number 16 is an unpretentious small restaraunt in Glasgow,s West End. You will be given a warm welcome by the owners and staff. The food is excellent and very well presented. This is an ideal venue for couples or a small group of friends to enjoy, expect a very small place off the street it's cosy but not cramped. Only... More

We visited here on a Friday lunchtime and had the three courses for £15.99 menu. The restuarant is quite small and cosy and we were treated to a warm and friendly welcome. The food was terrific. My partner had the fishcake to start, which was made of proper chunks of fish, I had mushroom soup, with truffle oil giving a... More

i would recommend you try here. Small and personal, staff very attentive. Food was first class, full of flavour!! If I had a suggestion i thought seats were a bit close up the stairs. Can not praise the food enough though. Defo be back.

My girlfriend and I were on a day out in the city, as we live in the Lake District. What a super lunch we had.! The service was great. They looked after us very well. While we waited for our meal, warm bread rolls arrived. The food was gorgeous. I would highly recommend this place to one and all.

Chose the restaurant as our Irish friends are good cooks and love their "nice" food. No.1 in hard to please Glasgow sets the bar high. We were not disappointed. In fact, this could become a regular destination! At the bottom of the Byers Road hill, the restaurant is unassuming from the outside. Due to the compact nature, there is a... More

Went there after reading the reviews and seeing that it was rated #1 restaurant in Glasgow on Trip Advisor. The staff was welcoming and friendly. Therefore, the food was not good at all. Had the ham haddock as a starter and it was good. My boyfriend had a soup and it tasted so bad. We both had the duck as... More

This is the best meal I have had for some time. The style is cosy but elegant. The service is just right and the staff are friendly. Best of all, the food is imaginative and beautifully presented. We both had the duck which was delicious and desserts were amazing - it was hard to resist licking the plates! We'll definitely... More
