This was SUCH a nice family night out. My mum, brother and I went midweek and they were still having to turn people away at the door because of how many reservations they had - a good sign. So book ahead if you plan on going, no matter which day of the week. The food is so good and the... More

We arrived an hour early for our reservation and were seated quickly. The place is very small so it is a bit cramped. The service was cheerful and attentive. Every appetizer and dish we had was made with fresh ingredients that each popped with flavor. The combination of ingredients was like very tasty. The best meal we had while in... More

This is a small place that does good food at a reasonable price. Booking is required. The food is okay, the menu somewhat imaginative, the service done without fuss. We didn't stay for dessert. Not sure what it does to deserve all the accolades...but then, that seems to be the case with a lot of the eateries we encountered in... More

Food was good but felt that the menu was somewhat limited though. A bit pricey for what it was. Service was good with a bubbley wee glasgow lass. Overall a pleasant experience.

I booked Number 16 for my partners birthday after the reviews I read on Tripadvisor and I wasn't disappointed in the slighted. The restaurant itself if fairly small but that all adds to the charm in my opinion. We were greeted on our arrival by a very nice chap who asked us where we preferred to sit. We ordered the... More

We had a mouth watering meal on a busy Friday evening. Every dish was excellent and beautifully presented, service was flawless and the whole experience was a delight. The hand-crafted chocolates with coffee were superb. We would not hesitate to return.

You could easily walk past this place, but please don't ! A real treat. Food excellent standard, cooked to perfection. Creative and interesting menu to choose from. And what value.. £15.95 for 3 courses. The standard is so high, they could easily charge double. Many thanks, I will be back, just wish you were in Bothwell.
