Thyme and Lemon Ratings and Reviews
2nd time I've eaten here in a comparatively short time and both times it's been great. The food is tasty and nicely prepared - the bread is delicious, always a good sign - and there is plenty of choice for veggies and meat eaters alike - my friend had the lamb chops and said they're delicious. The atmosphere is lovely, good music playing in the background without being intrusive, friendly staff and clientele. We'll definitely be back.
Very tasty tapas and not too expensive although portions slightly smaller than some other places. The red wine we had was gorgeous (the second on the menu). Service was good but we were in a corner so was a little tricky to be served but I think that was just because of where we were sitting, would have been nice to be sitting in the main bit or outside if you get to choose. We would recommend.
Great food, great service, great ambiance. Feel the hustle bustle of the waiters and waitresses rushing around, but still feel you have your own little world to enjoy a little romance with your date. Friendly service is always on tap and so is the filling up of your wine glass. Top marks for an evening out.
This is the second time I have been to this restaurant. The first, pre-theatre (it is around the corner from the Almeida). The second was lunch with a friend. After the first time my partner and I so enjoyed the food that we vowed to return. The second time was equally good and I think my friend was impressed. The mussels are not to be missed I want the recipe!!!!
The best tapas restaurant I've been to in London for some time. Tasty, fresh and inventive dishes, attentive service with a welcoming décor and atmosphere. Not too pricey either. I do hope T& L make a success of their new restaurant, as Upper Street is notoriously competitive, but they're the best Spanish offering in Islington by a mile so I'd be surprised if they don't. Book now!
Met with friends late afternoon, it wasn't busy at this time but when we left it was filling up. Some of the tapas had a modern twist but everything we ate was delicious, service was attentive and I would definitely recommend. If I lived here it would be a place I'd frequent as I much prefer small varied plates.
