Excellent Food, very good value!

Almost michelin star food at good prices! I look forward to my next visit to Athlone, I will eat here! Service was good! not overbearing just the way I like it! Atmosphere, ambiance was nice, busy for midweek, obviously popular.

The meal was thoroughly enjoyed over a nice bottle of wine which was recommended by an informative waitress.The service was attentive, professional and kept a busy... More

Quite simply, chef John Coffey is a genius, and he seems to have an innate understanding of how to match flavours and textures in really innovative ways. I had the ham hock with a crispy boiled egg for a starter, and the ham was smoky, salty and sweet all at once! The egg was perfectly soft-boiled, with a delicious crispy... More

Fabulous Meal. This restaurant is consistently good. Its cosy and intimate for couples yet it also lends itself to dining as a large group. We enjoyed starters, main course and desserts, nice affordable wine list, nice menu, great breads, attentive staff and clean bathrooms. Great Location and well priced early bird menu available. Well done on maintaining consistently high standards,... More

Have visited thyme on many occasions, always lives up to expectations, be it for sunday lunch, family dinners or a romantic meal for two! Food is always high quality and the chef clearly loves using local Irish ingredients in a modern manner

We were recommended to this restaurant on a showery Monday night by the receptionist at the Radisdon Blu hotel just nearby. We had no reservation and were told if we decided to stay it would be at least 40 minutes before we were served as they had 2 large parties as well as other diners before us. We ordered a... More

Been there before, had high expectations, and not disappointed! Children's menu very good, they loved everything. Chips delicate and tasty. Stuffed flower was my appetiser and it was absolutely surprising and delicious (I was expecting Turkish-style dolma, but this was totally different and original, crispy and creamy) As a main I had lamb, also surprising and the creamed added sauces...

This place has excellent food and good service. The food is a little overpriced for the area. Good atmosphere. I would return.
