Very good restaurant with excellent food and service. Staff well trained, interested in customer satisfaction and efficient. Food reasonably priced with wine of medium choice and somewhat over priced.

We were looking forward to returning to thyme for some time! Once again we were not disappointed. As expected the food is exceptional and to die for in possible the most beautiful surroundings. Customer service with a smile and exceptional value for money. Definitely we wont leave it aslong the next time.

Generally great reviews on TA for Thyme. Yes we had a good meal, but not memorable or fantastic. Setting is lovely, staff great and overall ya I can recommend it.

Visited thyme on Friday evening for a second time. We had our work Christmas party here and wanted to returned with my boyfriend. We traveled from Galway and it was well worth the trip. 10 / 10 to the chef and producers of the food. It was amazing. Regards, Claire Moran

Came here on a cold and wet January night, when Athone seemed deserted - but this place was packed ! I'm not surprised, great food and great service at a very reasonable price - can't wait for my next visit !

Thank richardi
