Absolutely terrific

I have walked past this place many times and not really thought much as it looked so nondescript - was I wrong, the food is terrific, all seems to be blackboard specials and of high quality. Nice wine list too though we byo the wine..

This is a real find. Restaurant 16 serves outstanding food, from starters to desserts. The friendly waitstaff are exceptionally good, keeping a close eye on wine glasses, water glasses, and plates. It was hard for me to choose from the mouth-watering menu, and I intend to go back soon to try the other dishes.

Great Atmosphere and very friendly staff. All food are freshly made and dessert are divine. Ask them and they may have a secret menu on the day.

We needed to take professional colleagues and needed certainty that the restaurant would deliver - that meant one we knew rather than taking a punt on a new and untried. Have been many times but the food and service just get better - I chose an old reliable dish, the rare Duck which was superb but was stunned to see... More

First of all I have to rave about the service here. I have been here so many times and the level of good service has never faltered. They are friendly without being intrusive. There were 5 of us last night. I recommended the scampi linguini so 4 out of 5 of us had it. My friends were so happy with... More

Having eaten in the best in Italy in the past month, you could almost say there are 2 styles of eating. One that stretches the imagination in every with amazing options of taste, style ingredients but also becomes an intellectual exercise OR the option of a skilled chef who doesn't play games but delivers a wonderful meal of taste, flavour,...

I have been to Sixteen several times now, and every time the food has been excellent. I've had a different item from the entrée, mains and desserts each time, (not all of them every time - the servings are generous) and never been disappointed. On the latest visit, I chose the Angus steak. I'm very fussy about steak and would... More

Sometimes the best secret restaurants are revealed to you by out of towners. Friends from melbourne said we should meet at 16. Never heard of it - where is it etc. Wow!!! What a great Italian Food experience. 4 of us sampled a great cross section of the menu and there wasn't a disappointing dish in our selection. The quail... More
