A contemporary Victoria destination for European cuisine, About Thyme in London displays strong Spanish influence in a continental menu. The cellar is packed with a diverse collection of world wines, and the open-fronted diner’s fiery tones reflect the About Thyme chefs’ passion.

The varied About Thyme menu offers beetroot and tequila cured gravadlax, baked snails with pernod and brandy, and Galician octopus. Wild mushroom risotto, braised lamb shank and fillet of sea bass are among more traditional choices.

Italian amaretto ice cream, almond tart and espresso and Baileys crème brûlée are among the indulgent desserts at About Thyme. Light meal choices available at lunchtime and early evenings include stuffed piquillo peppers, sautéed tiger prawns and Serrano ham with bruschetta.

A huge selection of Spanish wines leads an eclectic list, also featuring the best from Chile and Australia’s vineyards. About Thyme restaurant is a 4-minute walk from London Victoria Train Station, on Wilton Road.

    Everytime we go there, the food seems better. The service impeccable -- and obviously others share my view that this is a terrific restaurant -- it was a Wednesday and the place was packed out for dinner.

    Fantastic food and service. A lovely little restaurant with great atmosphere.

    I booked the restaurant for my husband's birthday. It was a nice cosy restaurant near Victoria station. The staff were very friendly, and the food was good. The menu isn't massive (only 5-6 mains to choose from), but the portions are good and the food is tasty.
    It's easy to miss the restaurant as I think it's a little hidden - but definitely worth a try. I recommend you get a seat upstairs.

    Excellent. Service was extremely good and so was the food and ambiance.

    I have enjoyed About Thyme ever since it opened--I have never been disappointed. The food is unpretentious hearty and beautifully prepared. The rooms--especially upstairs area--provide a delightful atmosphere. The service is friendly and Issy--the Manager--is a definite star. A lovely perfect neighbourhood restaurant.

    Took a chance on this restaurant for a special dinner with our son who we haven't seen for 12 months. The food, wine and service were all top notch. We certainly weren't disappointed. Would definitely recommend this restaurant without hesitation.
