“Excellent.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

Once again superb, food and service right at the top, a real gem in Glasgow that consistently hits a high standard.
Having eaten in some of the more "expensive" restaurants I always find myself returning here, I know what I'm getting each and every time without risk of disapointment.. great food with a twist served by a warm and friendly staff.

The menu is just that little bit different, coupling great produce with superb preparation, served by people who genuinely seem happy to see you.

I really shouldn't be on here telling all how great this place is, its hard enough to get a table but this place deserves the praise.

IF YOU'VE NOT TRIED IT, YOUR MISSING OUT.

Book and enjoy.
Gary N.

“Number 16 - a real find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

You need to book early for this restaurant. It may look unassuming and small but the food is great, the wine list compliments the food and the staff are friendly and unobtrusive.

Food is locally sourced, inspired by flavours from around the world, beautifully flavoured and cooked to perfection.

We will visit again when next in Glasgow.

“Gorgeous lunch in the Westend!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Fab-u-lous 2 course lunch (3 course option available also). Fantastic diverse menu using the best fresh ingredients. Simply sublime, I strongly recommend you give this 'wee gem' a try. Put it this way, we were so impressed that we are returning with friends soon for a Saturday night!
