We had one of our best meals ever at Thyme in Athlone last Sat night and because of it we are already talking about going back to stay in Athlone just to eat at this restaurant.
The restaurant is quiet small but we never felt crowded.Over the evening three different staff approached our table and each one was friendly and very knowledgable about the menu, the staff all seemed to be very experienced or at least well versed in the menu.
We found it difficult to choose because between the specials and the menu we were spoiled for choice, we settled on potato cake starter and the scampi and both were brilliant but the pork belly main course was the winner, it was perfect. I had the chicken from the specials and while it was excellent I was jealous of the pork.
The food was presented so well and tasted just as good as it looked. One of the things I really liked was even though it was a small restaurant we never felt rushed or that our table needed to be re-used so hopefully Thyme is busy enough all week long and will survive these tough times. We will be back.
