Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

An accomplished little venue that has been around since 1999, Number 16 takes its name from its Byres Road address. The dining area covers two levels, giving the ground floor a below stairs feel, while the mezzanine is more open but don't expect to be surrounded by acres of space; red walls and natural wood tones dominate the décor.

The Euro-bistro menu could bring you three courses starting with roast Toulouse sausage with parmesan polenta mash and spiced Puy lentils; much accessorised slow-cooked ox cheek as a main with creamed savoy cabbage, pancetta, roast garlic and parsley mash, root vegetable crisps and a rosemary jus; banana and peanut crumble with gingerbread ice cream for dessert.

With à la carte mains all pegged at under £20, and a few bottles off the low end of the wine list also under £20, dining here won't distress your credit card. The set lunch meanwhile is great value. Given the restaurant's size booking is advisable, especially at weekends.
