A beautiful bistro found in Pimlico. An intimate setting for a romantic meal. The owner is super friendly and you're instantly made to feel at home. The food is delicious, extremely rich, but a reasonable price. Service is slow so not a place to visit if you're in rush but I find it adds to the charm. Be sure to book ahead as there is a limited number of tables and this place is popular.


About Thyme is just about one of my favourite little spots in London. Independently run, so small from the outside you could almost miss it. I can't believe I haven't reviewed it yet! When I lived in Pimlico I would bring friends and family here all the time. It's mid range - so not toooo expensive but also not shabby. The service is top dollar and the food (sort of pan italian-european) is always consistent and tasty.


About Thyme is a sweet little restaurant near Victoria Station, a great one if you need a slightly fancy (but not excessive) romantic or family meal. The staff are friendly and I think it might be family owned. You can call and reserve a table usually. Food is Italian-English and the Jamon is a speciality but menus change day to day. Food is great quality, service and atmosphere are great too.

Amazing little restaurant, great food and a lovely relaxed of not slightly old fashioned atmosphere. Worth a visit for a relaxed meal.

Fronted by a beautiful street-level terrace adorned with gorgeous flowering blooms, About Thyme transports you to another world, far removed from the hustle and bustle of surrounding Pimlico. 

We were delighted to be given a table on the ground floor terrace, where we shared the Spanish platter to start (a selection of Spanish meats and cheeses) with a great bottle of Organic Rioja (that I forget the name of now). 

I followed with the linguine with Fresh Crab Meat, Garlic, Chilli & Olive Oil. It was completely decadent but delicious. I couldn’t resist the Santiago tart for dessert – thanking the gods for my separate pudding compartment!

The service was fantastic – attentive but not intrusive, and there was a great ambience from the mix of families, couples and suited exec types, all enjoying the great food and atmosphere.

I highly recommend a visit!
