Had been a while since we were here, but this time to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were certainly not disappointed: charming, attentive and knowledgeable staff, very good wines to complement the meal and first class cooking. Crab cakes and feta, beet root and couscous starters were tasty, guinea fowl and duck breast mains were sublime - glad we went,... More

Took my mum here for Mother's Day recently and again we were not disappointed. We tend to go here to celebrate any occasion, birthdays, Father's Day, Fridays! I had been with different groups of friends and family and we all share the same view that this little restaurant is the best glasgow had to offer. Atmosphere is cosy without being... More

One of the most pleasurable eating experiences we've ever had. From delicious, well cooked & well presented food, to the excellent, friendly and professional service, not to mention the excellent value for money. Put succinctly, superb in every way. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Our first visit to this restaurant can only be described as sheer heaven. Our hostess spent time going through our many questions; my wife is a coeliac so very important to ensure that food is gluten free. The selection of food for her was very good and can say that this was one of the best meals we have ever... More

My Daughter took me here last week for Mother's Day Treat with my Granddaughter, the lunch was excellent, we all had different starters and mains and puds on the set menu, \ll absolutely delicious, my only complaint was the restaurant was quite cold and draughty, had to keep our coats on over our shoulders, that was the only disappointment.

I've eaten in this restaurant four times in the past few months (with partner, group of friends and family Christmas meal) and it has been excellent every time. The food has been delicious with great combinations of flavours. The belly pork has been a particular favourite with all. The staff are friendly and welcoming and seem genuinely interested in making... More

The restaurant was booked by our daughter and her husband for a family meal before a comedy show nearby. Really welcoming hosts and an intro to quite a small restaurant. Very pleasant atmosphere with the added rumble of the Glasgow Underground going by every few minutes. All courses well priced and carefully cooked and a good wine menu at ungreedy... More

Second time at number 16 and yet again not disappointed. The flavours are so fresh and make your taste buds wonder. Love this cosy wee restaurant, small in nature but not in taste :)
