A lovely lunch from a varied menu. Unfortunately we had to wait quite a long time for food and the restaurant was very cold! On leaving, the waitress said I should have mentioned this but there was no visible form of heating and the door to the restaurant was constantly being used. I will go back, but ask for a... More

We arrived a little late, however were welcomed with open arms, after I called ahead. Seated upstairs in the mezzanine, it felt quite cramped initially, but we soon grew accustomed to the surroundings. My colleague chose the North Atlantic scallops to start, while I opted for Smoked Chorizo with Puy Lentils - both tasted fantastic, as we eagerly shared amongst... More

Second visit and Number 16 now established as our favourite local restaurant. Imaginative menu leaves you struggling to choose. Wine list also offers different and interesting choices which are surprisingly affordable. Lovely welcoming team. Highly recommended

Me and my partner came here for food on Friday. We initially thought it looked very small, so we didn't have high hopes. We were so wrong! The food was unbelievable. I have never had such a tasty meal before. We will definitely re visit. The staff were also fantastic. 5*

Myself and my partner visited this absolute gem on Friday night! Being a bit unfamiliar with Glasgow I booked this restaurant on the back of reviews from this site. When we walked in I wasn't sure what to expect as it is a very small premises. However the owner/manager soon made any doubts disappear. A true credit to the industry.... More

Had a great pre Christmas meal with my other half's family here. The food was absolutely gorgeous, really friendly staff and very attentive. Also greatly considerate of coeliac sufferer in the group. Well worth the money, the place is small so can get quite warm but it has a lovely cosy and relaxed atmosphere. Would recommend.
