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.

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!?!

Rather strange service, quite stuffy and also forgetful when it came to looking after the wine. Took us a while to get a drink as we sat down. And they were weirdly hushed when the servers talked to each other! HOWEVER the food was superb, and the place is lovely and interestingly decorated. I would recommend to friends but I would flag up the service

I hadn't been for some time and had forgotten just how good this gem of a restaurant is. Outstanding food - it was a casual Saturday lunch so we went for the set menu. Delicious flavours and combinations. Excellent, attentive and friendly service and well-paced. We will not leave it so long before we visit again. It was just perfect. (And the best coffee in London, in my opinion!)

The tasting menu was good but not fantastic. The food was perfectly tasty but for me it just didn't have the wow factor. The upstairs dining room looked to be buzzier than where we were (downstairs) which felt a bit like someone's lounge. The service was very good.

Good and friendly service from our waitress although young male staff seemed stand offish. Food inventive and good except poor roast beef. Not sure rump cut worked? Second time got caught by pre roasted spuds- eating at 2.30 were overdone and pretty tough but unsatisfactory for a place of this standard. Used to have more atmosphere I think years ago...,

An absolute perfect dining experience at the Chefs Table at Idettes in Primrose Hill. Not only Food Perfection but Amazing Service and Bob Homie from All the Staff and perfect wine pairing with the Tasting Menu !! All our guests were blown away by the whole experience. Many many thanks and can't wait to do the 400 mile round trip to Do It Again. Top Marks

Great food at a very good price for the quality of food on offer. Had 4 choices of each course for a set price with a great choice of wine. Ideal for a special meal. We went for a fairly early lunch (12.45) and it was very quiet. By 2pm the atmosphere was much livelier but still felt special

I have eaten at Odettes at least 10 times and I have never been disappointed. Always leave with very satisfied stomach and taste buds. The friends and family that I have introduced to this restaurant have been equally impressed. A really comfortable and friendly ambience and on a fine summers day sitting at the window table looking out to Primrose Hill Park is superb. Food is excellent and service very good. Thank you to chef and management.
