We have lived less than a mile from this place for over 3 years and never ventured in. So glad we decided to last week as it was one of the best meals we've had in the city. Don't let the small menu put you off, I can assure you everything on it tastes delicious. The small open kitchen obviously... More

Great atmosphere, home-like feeling, reasonable prices and friendly stuff make this restaurant worthwhile. But what makes it truly amazing is the ever so tasty food. Best culinary experience I've ever had. To top that, it's conveniently located within a two minute walk from the subway. Everyone who lives in or visits Glasgow should eat here at least once!

Our third visit and it was as good as every other visit. Crab salad was excellent and halibut cooked extremely well. Had to have some of the pork belly that my son ordered, which was excellent. Service also excellent. Couldn't fault it.

Booked for early on a Saturday afternoon for a party of 6, and had a superb meal. The service was first class and we weren't hurried or hassled - just had a lovely meal and came out commenting how great the place was & how we would return. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

My sisters and I visited Number 16 Saturday lunchtime for my birthday. We went for two course lunch at £13.95 (three course was £16.95). Although portions are quite small, the food was sublime ...... really yummy. Soft bread rolls with olive oil and butter are provided before meal free of charge ...... I would take at least a couple out... More

Went with my mum and auntie, we arrived 5 minutes early and our table wasn't ready yet - were given menus to look at and complementary prosecco while we waited! Staff very accomodating and helpful when choosing wines
