Went to Athlone intending to eat at another restaurant to find it closed due to a leak. Had been regulars at the Olive Grove previously housed in the premises presently housing Thyme restaurant so decided to give it a try. We received a very warm welcome from the waitress and the decor was lovely. It was a cold evening so... More

I've had the luck of going a few times to enjoy the absolutely amazing dishes they prepare. Each bite is a delight, and the dishes are well served; but be prepared to leave some space for dessert, you will not regret it. It it a bit pricey (at least for my budget), but definety worth it!

This is my third review for Thyme and it just gets better and better each time! I was there on Monday night with my partner and a friend who was visiting from Malta. We had specifically chosen Thyme as a treat for our visiting friend given the quality of food and service that we get every time we visit. From... More

I found this place by looking at reviews here on Tripadvisor and it might be one of the best restaurants I have been too for the overall experience. The mix of tastes is interesting, the presentation great, and the staff gives great service and is very friendly. I tried a 3 course value meal and wasn't disappointed with any of... More

The food here is top notch stuff! I had the venison starter and then chicken main and were fab! Eaten here a few times and never disappointed! Have yet to sample the desserts! Pricing is reasonable for the quality of food and service!

I went there on a date last Sunday! We were a "walk in" & luckily there was a spare table. Although we only wanted a main course we were well looked after by the nicest of staff. The veal & duck dishes were well received & we will be back!
