One of London's original dining rooms having opened in 1978, and it is still an acclaimed restaurant now owned by Welsh chef Bryn Williams, set amongst a parade of mid-Victorian shops and cafes in beautiful Primrose Hill.
Bryn's modern British menu is an innovative marriage of textures and flavours that reflect his personality and heritage: dishes are created using the finest produce sourced from his native Wales and the rest of the UK.
Lunch and dinner is served Wednesday to Sunday in the Odette's split level dining room, walled garden and terraced seating area.

                              We were five people and I had said that it was a Birthday celebration and also that we would like somewhere quiet. They sat us in a sort of private room with a view over the rest of the restaurant. There was the option to close a curtain if the noise from below got too much - but it didn't. The food was excellent and beautifully served. We weren't pushed to drink more than we wanted - as happens in some restaurants. As a birthday "treat " we were served with some delicious desert squares which were both sweet and tart on a plate with the words Happy Birthday. We were last here 22 years ago when looking for somewhere to have a small reception after my son and daughter in law got married. We won't leave it as long to come back again.

                              The food is simply outstanding and mouth-watering. Excellent service and a non-fussy decor. Quiet and easy to talk.

                              Faultless, sunday lunch was delicious and served beautifully. Attentive, professional staff who took interest in us. Visiting here has been on my bucket list, hopefully it won't be my last visit. Being a welsh speaker, I appreciated the "welshism" throughout the restaurant. Da iawn Bryn, keeping to your roots.

                              Food was, as ever, delicious. The Jaffa cake is a classic who’s pleasure never, ever fades! However the service was much less friendly than we’ve experienced in the past. Nothing wrong with it, however it lacked that personal touch that typically makes it such a pleasure to dine at the one and only Odette’s

                              Perfect place to catch up with friends seated in our own semi private room. Beautiful food, attentive and careful service. Standout meal!

                              There was nothing wrong with anything we were served for lunch today at Odette’s, but there was absolutely no “wow factor” either. And the insistence that we order our dessert at the same time as we ordered our starters/mains/wine because the kitchen would be closing in 45 minutes…just bizarre. As it turned out, we would have wanted a dessert, as the starters/mains were *small* - but by then it was too late.

                              Excellent food, took a while for main course to arrive but staff were very kind about it and removed service charge from our bill and gave us complementary wine. Delicious flavours in every course. Perfect textures, beautiful arrangement on plates, cannot fault the food.

                              We went to Odette consistently over the past 15 years since we moved to the area. We had a break of five or so years while living overseas in California and we did not know what to expect coming back. We are very pleased to say that it has the same high quality of food and service as we remembered and are back as regulars to one of our local favourite spots for lunch with our children or visitors.

                              This was our first visit to Odettes and it didn’t disappoint. Food and service were both excellent. There was a pleasant vibe and a quite hum of diners on a sunny Thursday lunch service. Some dinners ate outside which looked great too.

                              From the moment we entered the restaurant we received first class service. Our expectations were high and they were exceeded on every level. The food is by far worthy of at least two if not three Michelin Stars. We can’t understand why a restaurant of this quality, effortlessly serving the Primrose Hill neighbourhood and beyond has been overlooked; the food alone deserves a star. With Bryn and Thomas serving up such fabulous food you really are missing out if you do not make this your next culinary experience - plus given the keen prices you’ll have plenty of money to return again and again. Well done Odettes we are already looking forward to our next visit.

                              Truly extraordinary food and service. Surprising, memorable food I can’t stop thinking about. The experience was cozy, and it all felt really unrushed and unfussy. An elegant gem of the highest quality, which happens to feel like a tucked away neighborhood restaurant.

                              Food was very good but small portions so be prepared to order extra sides if you have a big appetite. We sat downstairs at the back which was much quieter than the front which was more bistro than restaurant style.Very good attentive service.

                              I've always liked Odettes but after a family birthday lunch there I now think it is the best North London restaurant. We were too lazy to chose food so went for the tasting menu and wine flight. All the dishes were delicious, the portions were just right and the Jerusalem artichoke and truffle starter was sublime. What was an unexpected joy were the non-obvious wine selections - at least white port does not come to mind when I think winter root vegetables - i.e. the jerusalem artichoke. I can't praise it enough and we really appreciated the lovely service: our expected two hour stay became four very easily.

                              All good, thank you. Restaurant was very busy but the service was very attentive.
