Just returned from a nice evening out with my wife at no 16 restaurant, Byres Road, Glasgow. Was really looking forward to my visit after receiving a much appreciated voucher from my work colleagues for my 40th birthday. The restaurant was lovely, the service was really good but I was quite disappointed with certain aspects of the food, my starter,... More

A tiny restaurant in the West End of Glasgow, Number 16 lived up to the reviews we'd read. The menu was inventive, full of fresh ingredients. We had the pork belly and the lamb shoulder....both delicious and beautifully served. The service is excellent. The restaurant is TINY! Reservations are a must. Enjoy!

We had not been to 16 for a while - but it is still as good as it ever was. OK it's small - but comfortable, and informal. Parmesan shortbread is a pretty good way to start - then pork belly ad sweet and tender as you could wish for. My wife had seven spice roast duck - which she... More

My first time at this establishment, all I can say is, a truly amazing experience, very small, which make it more intimate, food was first class, service was second to none, staff very attentive. Will definitely be back😁 remember you really have to book to avoid disappointment.

Service very slow considering we were having the set graduation menu. Food quite good though, but not as good as I was lead to believe from other reviews.

Glad I booked for our lunch as quite a few was turned away for having not booked. The waiter were all friendly and we were asked which table we wanted, near the back or by the window. We chose near the window and wished we didn't as I spent quite a bit of time killing wee midges that was probably... More

Second visit to number 16. The first visit didn't wow us but friends were keen to try the place so we returned. The waiting staff were lovey-friendly, engaging and helpful. The squid starter was full of flavour. The lamb, gnocchi and Tom Yum soup were all highly recommended. There is a good choice for everyone and food is cooked well.... More

Up from London for the weekend we had a lovely evening here last Friday - interesting menu of delicious seasonal food, cooked beautifully and served by a friendly young lady with a sense of humour. Warm cosy atmosphere - we were made to feel really welcome. We shall definitely be back.
