Recently had Sunday lunch here, around 4.00 pm, possibly because it was late afternoon the place was quite. Our kids had burger option which I would describe as being fine, myself the fish nicely presented, and hubby the pork option, on the whole we felt it was on the pricey side

Was there last night . Had the pork belly with crackling , hoi sin , beet root and pak choi . All I 'll say is "please chef never take this off your value menu"-a taste explosion! I love lots of sauce and it was very plentiful -often in restaurants chefs are skimpy with the sauce and I usually have... More

After a blustery day of sightseeing in Ireland, we were very pleased to find this lovely bistro for dinner. Our meals (duck and chicken) were very well prepared and we shared a selection of Irish cheeses for dessert. Also, the restaurant has many gluten-free choices which is very nice for my husband who is a celiac. We would recommend it... More

We came here on the recommendation of friends, and were delighted with the food. One of the top three meals we had in Ireland in three weeks! We took advantage of the two course special for Euros 24 for two courses, before 7 pm, and it was a bargain for the masterful cooking and presentation we received. The pork belly... More

In my opinion Athlones number one for a couple on a night out or buisness dinner. Classy without being pretentious, quality food beautifully presented. Plenty of options on the value menu so not too pricey for three great courses and a full belly.

Had dinner there as a couple on Friday night. Pretty busy. 2 large groups in, one especially loud. Starters over priced. Young dark haired waiter took our food order but forgot to ask if we wanted a drink. Had the ribeye steaks. Not great cuts of meat, tasty but tough, but veg and potatoes fine. Had the special lamb starter.... More

I had the Dinner in Thyme last night, and really enjoyed it. The food was very tasty, I had the duck for mains and the waitress explained when I ordered that the chef cooks it medium I was a little nervous but it was delicious and will only ever have it like that again. My friend had the chicken and... More
