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 Pimlico. 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.

    Booked for a family dinner because the reviews were all so good. Justifiably so. Great food, great service. Realistically priced.

    At first we were fazed by the shortened choice on the menu, with some favourites missing. But we were assured this was just for the busy Christmas week.
    The food was up to usual high standards. a first time visit for our friends, one of whom is Spanish and was pleased with the authenticity.

    I have been going to About Thyme for years - always very good. EC, the owner, and his team are terrific. The hot Foie Gras is amazing and the lamb shank simply falls off the bone. have never had a bad meal there!

    Excellent food , service and atmosphere. Four of us dined before the matinee performance of wicked on my daughter's birthday. We were offered (and drank) a delicious liquor in lieu of blowing out candles! All our courses met expectations from scallops and black pudding to sea bass, fillet steak, duck and meat selection. Help was given to select the courses and wine. Wonderful experience! There is a service charge and we would have preferred to make this call ourselves. Indeed we left an extra tip for our waiter for his charm and humour.
