A RESTAURANT in the West End of Glasgow has been named among the top 10 best in the UK.

Number 16 Restaurant, on Byres Road, has taken eighth place in the annual Top 50 Fit for Foodies eateries across the nation by OpenTable reviewers.

The cosy, well-established and much-loved neighbourhood favourite is known for its modern twist on traditional Scottish cooking. The restaurant serves up dishes, including pecorino and ricotta ravioli, spiced shetland monkfish tail and stuffed saddle of Scottish lamb.

OpenTable bosses say 2019 is shaping up to be a strong year for restaurants outside of London as the top 10 list is solely made up of regional eateries from all corners of the country.

Not only are these reviews a trusted source for diners to turn to when looking for their next great dining occasion, but they are also a way for diners to share their personal experiences of the restaurant.
