best of local produce; quiet evening so lacked atmosphere. Service with a smile and reasonable prices, would love to go back on busy evening.

Went for dinner with husband. Just remembered that this restaurant used to be no 1 on trip advisor some time ago so decided to give a chance. What can i say.. Its one of the best meals we ever had. Only presentation is mouth watering. Absolutely amazing food, nothing else i can add to it. Worth visiting!

Saturday 4th October 2014 I chose this restaurant from Trip Advisor, (based on the great reviews) for a meal out with my husband and in-laws as we were visiting them in Co. Westmeath last week. We were there at just after their 5pm opening time, without a reservation (whoops, don't make that mistake) but they kindly squeezed us in (the... More

My girlfriend and I went here last night. The food was delicious. I had the salted beef salad starter and the venison main both of which were superb. My girlfriend had the hake scampi and the lamb plate both cooked to perfection and super tasty. The service was wonderful. It's a tad pricey but definitely worth it. Overall a fantastic... More

On a short trip to Athlone last week, I suggested trying the Thyme as I had read very good reviews about this town centre restaurant. Driving up and down the town's main street after dark, we failed to spot the Thyme and had to ask for walking directions. The restaurant is located off the main thoroughfare, down a narrow, declining... More
