When you first step into Number 16, the warm pleasant greeting from the waitresses and the remarkably cosy decor takes you far away from the hectic shoppers outside. If you are after excellent cooked meals with flavour and substance then you need to experience number 16. The haddock for starters was inspiring delicious and complimented the venison I had as...

Visited Glasgow last week and booked pre theatre menu at restaurant. Food was amazing, very flavoursome and good seasonal produde. Venison sausage starter was my favourite, although all food was excellent. Waitress was excellent, knew the menu well and was extremely helpful and pleasant. Overall lovely experience and good value for money.

Small, friendly restaurant with an interesting menu, good wine list and great service. The atmosphere created by the welcoming staff and 'cosy' layout was terrific. We both chose fish options from the relatively limited menu - the standard of the food and its presentation was great. Overall a very enjoyable evening.

A return visit to Number 16 for lunch did not disappoint. A small restaurant that packs a punch in taste and value. We chose from the three course lunch menu, which had a good variety of options and savoured each course. Friendly and welcoming staff rounded of a relaxing visit.

Cosy well decorated interior with flattering lighting - good date spot. Quick, professional service with a smile. Right on the ball with offering more drinks. Food was awesome and reasonably priced. They bring you olives and savoury shortbread as an added bonus. Would return in a heartbeat!

Good price, amazing food and small beautiful restaurant, everything at the same time going with an attentive enough service. Being an small restaurant you could feel staff bothering you, but nothing like this! Care behind food for 19.95 menu, starter main and dessert. I cant do anything apart of recommending even to the bus driver...

I arrived back in Glasgow and had to return to this amazing restaurant. We were greeted by staff who remembered us from our last visit two months earlier. She also recalled what we ate and my daughters allergies. She was very impressive. We had a lovely dinner on a Sunday night. We had the Romanesco salad which I highly recommend.... More

Dashing to Glasgow for a day trip from the Mother Land (England), I wanted to find a place to eat which encouraged a 'long lunch' during the height of the busyness. I wasn't disappointed. I was taken aback with how relaxed, informal, yet polished the atmosphere and service was. Being offered a G & T to start my lunch off... More
