The Thyme is located on the Strand in downtown Athlone. It has a limited menu, but all the choices are upscale and attractive. The chef locally sources his ingredients. The lamb appetizer was excellent and paired well with a fruity prosecco. The duck main course was flavorful and moist. The mocha coffee and coffee mousse finished the meal perfectly.

I just love this restaurant, the food is consistently excellent, the staff are friendly and efficient. There is no other restaurant within a 50mile radius that can compete with the standard of cooking here. A must for that special occasion and they also offer a terrific Mid-Week value menu. I highly recommend the Duck for Main Course. Enjoyed another great... More

The set menu is one of the best I have ever seen and the choice is fantastic. The lamb was delicious and my friends had the duck which they all raved about. The wine list was also very good.

Ate the most lovely meal here last night. All three courses, fresh with sublime taste. Would most definitely recommend and will most definitely revisit. It is fine dining and geared heavily towards carnivores ! The vegetarian option seemed a token gesture on the menu without all the appetising detail of the meat/fish courses, so if you have a veggie or... More

I've been here on numerous occasions over the years and it never fails to impress. Service is great and the ambiance is very nice. I had the wagyu beef on this occasion and it was excellent. Also it's open on Sunday when certain other decent restaurants in town are not! Definitely recommended.

Booked this for my husbands birthday and well worth the 2 hours of travelling time. Very friendly member of staff confirmed our booking and we enjoyed excellent food - presentation outstanding - with flavours to delight any palette. Pity so far away though.
