“Great Dinning Experience all round!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2011

I wanted to take my partner out for a nice meal, I done a bit of research on restaurants in Athlone and what their menus had to offer. I looked up reviews on trip advisor for a few potential candidates I had in mind. Thyme restaurant had no negative reviews and received very positive feedback, which after dinning there, the reviews were well deserved. The food was excellent, everything was cooked to perfection and the portions were spot on. The staff was very friendly. I would definitely go back again and recommend it to friends.

“As good as the first time we visited”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2011

This was our second visit to the Thyme Restaurant and again did not dissappoint.
We first came here in Sept 2010 and enjoyed it so much I decided to come to Athlone again to bring my partner back for his 50th birthday. We had a beautiful evening, the food is exceptional, the staff so friendly, and even though it's an hour and a half drive for us and means staying over it's so worth it. Athlone is a lovely town to visit and made all the better by this beautiful restaurant.. Looking forward to our next visit ,soon I hope....

My wife and I took a weekend break in Athlone recently and our meal in Thyme Restaurant was definitely one of the best meals we have ever had. Food was gorgeous service great and atmosphere was lovely. Next time in Athlone this restaurant will definitely be top of our list.

“Delicious!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2011

Passing through Athlone recently and called in on the recommendation of a friend! Definitely worth a visit and will try to get back any time I'm in Athlone! Tried the duck confit and the ribeye steak- both were delicious and very generous portions! The chocolate dessert was amazing. The service was very friendly and the atmopshere was lively. Shall be extending the recommendation to friends and family!
