British
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 seven days a week in the Odette's split level dining room, walled garden and terraced seating area.

The restaurant were very accommodative by allocating a corner booth for us. The service team were attentive, friendly and professional. The food was of a high quality. Regrettably the main courses were not as warm as they should have been and there was a faux pas with the wrong jus but neither detracted from the dining experience. Will return.

We were celebrating a friend’s special birthday and had a great welcome and the service was excellent. The food was delicious and we weren’t rushed at anytime. It was an excellent experience and made even more special with a special birthday treat for our friend, curtesy of the restaurant. Diolch yn fawr iawn!

We had lunch at Bryn Williams’ Somerset House restaurant, was so impressed we enquired and found there was another one at Primrose Hill- so went there for dinner.
Small serves beautifully presented, wonderful flavours and different combinations. From slow cooked lamb to chicken breast with a magical sauce. Desserts to die for- from Lemon panacotta to a rich creamy chocolate mouse- wonderful! Even met Bryn Williams!! Most impressed

Wonderful, beautifully presented, delicious food. "Early Evening Menu" excellent value - although the prices of the (excellent) wine list ramp-up the cost considerably. The staff were attentive and efficient, although one of them was struggling to understand English.

Celebrating my birthday in this intimate venue has been great not only we all enjoyed the lunch menu but we were joined by two other friends for coffees and I must say the staff was superb at accomodating us despite the very short notice. Service was excellent as well. All of us will be paying more visits to Odette's. For me it is only a short stroll away.

Der Tip eines Reiseführers war den kleinen Ausflug in den sehr schicken Randbezirk Londons wert. Tolle Küche und freundlicher Service. Preislich natürlich für London eher in der oberen Range, dafür erhält man hier aber entsprechende kullinarische Gegenleistung.

Don’t know if it’s nicer downstairs... but upstairs had absolutely zero ambience, no music and all we could hear was talking, the lighting was bright and cold, overall just a really canteen feeling, starters where undesirable, main was beef, very nice! Desert medioca! Very confused as the reviews were so good!

We have always wanted to try this restaurant having passed it many times. It didn't disappoint. The service, ambience and cuisine were first class. We ate downstairs in the 'Library' which I highly recommend. It's quiet and the atmosphere is gentile and cosy. So much so in fact, we were reluctant to leave! Will most definitely dine here again.

We came to Odette's to celebrate Mother's Day with friends from Canada. Without exception everyone really enjoyed the experience. The beef was absolutely delicious with a perfectly cooked Yorkshire pud and the halibut was said to be "the best ever". The food was so delicious we all had to have dessert! Will return as soon as possible!

My second visit to Odette’s did not disappoint. I was remembered by Maitre d’ and given same table as my first visit which I thought was a very nice act.
Food was as delicious as last time the varying mushroom style, Burford egg with garlic was divine, Sunday roast perfection, finished off with a gorgeous chocolate pave. Bravo!

Wonderful restaurant. My wife and I visited on Saturday evening and we both enjoyed the tasting menu. It was superb value for money (6 courses £55 per head). The service was exceptional too - my wife is pregnant and once we mentioned this they modified every last detail to ensure she could enjoy all the ingredients, from cooking through the beef to adapting certain dishes to ensure she could eat everything on the plate. It might seem like a fairly routine expectation but they were so conscientious and it meant we could just get on and enjoy the meal in the knowledge that they had everything covered. The dishes were fantastic and we'll certainly be back again!

Had a lovely Valentines dinner.

The set menu was well balanced, seasonal and most importantly delicious.

I had the wine pairing, which complimented the food incredibly well.

The only negative was an additional £50 charge made to my card after I’d left. I believe they got the bill wrong, however I’m disappointed I wasn’t informed, nor have they sent me a receipt.

The experience was very positive however, and I would absolutely recommend.

I hadn't been to Odette's in Primrose Hill for awhile, but we heard there was a new chef so decided to try the lunch special. It was excellent! A lovely leek and potato soup with a poached egg was the starter, followed by red mullet with crispy squid and chorizo. Very good. Great service and a nice atmosphere, plus it was very good value. We will be back!

We enjoyed an absolutely lovely anniversary lunch at Odette's. Superb food, excellent service, perfect ambiance. The prix fixe menu offers exceptional value. We will return, especially for a special occasion. But really, it's such great value that we would also consider it at any time... Hmmm... maybe today!?!
