We were in Number 16 for dinner and it was incredible. Cosy little restaurant with exceptionally good food. Never expected such high cuisine and good service in this inconspicuous area. Good value for money!

Absolutely delicious food and wine served by the most charming staff. We tried their Pork and Fish and homemade sorbets. All scrumptious! Have to go there again!
