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.

    The very best in restaurant experiences. Welcoming, fabulous food and drink and service exemplary
    The staff are lovely and look after you without being intrusive. The only fault with the menu was so many fantastic dishes. Everything we had was as described, full of flavour and beautifully presented
    Had been introduced to this restaurant by one friend I took another friend and we are already planning to return. Fabulous fabulous fabulous!

    Great friendly restaurant and a good atmosphere. Service can be a little slow when they are full but usually very good. Calves liver and the octopus are very good.

    Another excellent Tapas dinner at About Thyme. Excellent service and menu. Quality of food excellent. All dishes were delicious. Octopus and Kidneys a revelation. Loved the Burrata. Nice wine menu.

    We were seated upstairs at a discrete and cosy table by a window. The service was very good, slow on some occasions but that suited our pace of dining. The waiter was knowledgeable and polite. Two of my party had steaks which looked very good and were cooked correctly to order. I had an absolutely delicious crab linguine, just the right amount of chilli to give it a zing, and the pasta was very well cooked.

    Although I did not have a dessert two of my party ordered the crumble and chocolate fondant respectively which was stated on the menu as needing 15 minutes to arrive. They both arrived at their allotted time. The other member of the party order pastry which also looked delicious.
