I booked this restaurant through recommendations on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. We had been craving tasty food since returning from the Maldives a month ago where the food was amazing. Number 16 ticked all the boxes. This is a small quirky restaurant up the west end of Glasgow and you could easily plan a night out up... More

Lovely little restaurant on Byres Road, taken there by friends who had been before, will definitely be back. Lovely staff, nothing is too much trouble. Great food and wine with wine prices being very reasonable for city restaurant. Desserts were heavenly so leave room to try them.

I've a family of "foodies, but it means we're not easy to please! So my daughter was nervous about her choice of a small restaurant in Byres Road. She needn't have been - this was great for all 4 (which is difficult!). My scallops were great as a starter, and my main was excellent too! The fish eaters declared themselves... More

Visited this wonderful restaurant on Saturday 19 April for lunch with a friend after reading trip advisor reviews. The food was excellent with an assortment of clean flavours, well cooked and beautifully presented. Excellent service; helpful but not "in your face". The menu has a range of non standard combinations which work brilliantly. Good quality food in a cosy restaurant... More

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

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.
