“Competent cooking with cosy atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2012

Four of went for a Saturday early evening dinner. The space is small and narrow with a mezzanine upstairs that gives it a cosy friendly feel, especially appropriate for winter. Dishes such as broth of ham hock and seared trout with horseradish cream for starters plus belly of pork, croquette potato with celeriac puree and sea bass with broad beans and beetroot for mains showed accomplished precise kitchen skills. Desserts continued the theme. House wines are available by the pitcher and reasonably priced given the quality of food. Tap water is offered on arrival - a nice touch. Deservedly popular local treat.

“Small but perfectly formed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

Having been to this restaurant several times and not left a review I felt I should this time. All four of us really enjoyed our meals, however the guinea fowl and pork belly were particular hits. With all deserts, especially the sticky toffee pudding, being raved about, we left contented and happy, perfect for a cold winters evening!

We found the service to be friendly, polite, responsive and efficient at all times.

We will and have reccommened this restaurant to friends and family for all occasions.

“Pleasant Suprise for Westend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2012

I was visiting my sister and she booked a table. It is a small restaurant but it serves very tasteful food. There were some nice surprises on the menu and I has beetroot risotto and followed up with Vietmanese Broth. Both the starter and the main were delicious. My sister also enjoyed her meal. Only criticism is that it is a bit tight for space but this should not stop you visiting. Pleasant atmosphere and friendly service.

“Don't expect a warm welcome.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2012

Food is rather good but was made sour my the pretentious plate carrier; chatting away with regulars but treating other eaters with disdain.

Female waiter was fantastic and stopped the visit being a total nightmare.

I'd go between the 3rd and 17th of February as we heard the waiter saying he was off to New Zealand.

We are glad that you rated both our food and value highly on your Trip Advisor review regarding your recent visit to Nö16 Restaurant. With regards to your grievances over the service, it is never the intention of any of our team to treat any guest with either indifference or indeed disdain. We must apologise if you felt that was the case on your visit.

However, we would also suggest that sharing your comments of one of the team's specific vacation dates and plans is slightly unkind on a public arena as Trip Advisor. We respect the private lives and personal details of our staff, and would anticipate our guests show the same element of discretion.

We will, of course, look forward to welcoming you on your next visit to Nö16 Restaurant.

The Nö16 Team.
