We had taken advantage of an Itison voucher which provided 2 courses for two with a glass of prosecco each. The restaurant is entered via a side door of the Grand Central Hotel on the very dusty and noisy Hope Street but when you enter the reception area it is a world away from its outside surroundings and the restaurant...

Last night we thought we would try the hotel restaurant. We were greeted with the warmest welcome you could ask for. The dining room was grand but was filled with the buzz of very content diners. The food and service were second to none and very reasonably priced. Well worth a visit.

Groupon 2 mains deal. Excellent value. Bruschetta and artisan bread and oil starters were good. I had schnitzel for mains and SO had venison. Both excellent. No sides needed. Wine decent value. Young staff very professional and maitre d very informative about the history of this old Glasgow institution. Well worth a visit.

Visited the Tempus restaurant in late March. Although the menu was not extensive there was a reasonable choice of dishes on the seasonal menu. We both opted for sirloin steak (£6 supplement) which was cooked to perfection. Staff were attentive & helpful. Booking probably advisable as restaurant was relatively busy midweek.

Had a lovely meal here on a Groupon deal during a night away to Glasgow with friends. Restaurant was lovely and staff very attentive and helpful. Meal was lovely, the Lamb Shank that I had was delicious and just fell off the bone. Highly recommend.
