About Tempus - Grand Central
We're definitely going back. Fantastic food and service.
From the moment we stepped into the bar and ordered our aperitifs we felt like V.I.P.S.
We ordered from the market menu, which is great value.
The prawn cocktail had just the right amount of sauce for us, not smothered like a lot of other restaurants. Generous portions too.
We then had duck, cooked to absolute perfection, and rested perfectly, so it just melted in the mouth.
My partner has an allergy to peppers and onions and the waitress made sure there were none on her plate. Also managed to get cranberry sauce for her duck.
Onto dessert, nothing on the menu took our fancy, but when my friend mentioned Black Forest Gateau, the waitress went to the kitchen and managed to get us a chocolate cheesecake with added cherries. Fantastic way for us to end our meal.
We then decided to have another drink, so the restaurant manager organised that for us, then proceeded to take us to the Champagne Bar and got us a window seat overlooking the station.
All in all, this was a fantastic night out, the enthusiastic staff couldn't be more helpful or polite and the restaurant manager, Andy, visited all the tables to ensure all diners needs were catered for fully. Quality service and food like this, is sadly lacking in too many restaurants.
Can't wait to go back and be treated like a V.I.P. again.
Can't wait to go back
What can I say, this is my second visit in a short space of time. This time my husband and I took our son and daughter for a treat on Christmas Eve. Food delicious as always especially for my gluten free meal and service excellent. What more can I say! I would recommend Tempus for a delicious meal. Enjoy!
Modern Scottish city centre restaurant
The Grand Central is one of Glasgow’s landmark hotels and it has welcomed everyone from Churchill to Frank Sinatra. Tempus restaurant is within Grand Central and one of the city centre’s dining hotspots.
Two original Italian, Murano glass chandeliers and large arched windows along with high ceilings and traditional decor create a sumptuous and light venue. The restaurant still, however, manages to be a relaxed venue for a meal.
