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 food was a bit disappointing. Too little vegetables, not very subtle. Wines expensive for What they were.

this is one of our favourite restaurants in North London - the food and wine are always sensational - but perhaps because it was a promotional lunchtime offer the service was not quite of their usual standard. The restaurant was full as always so they are clearly doing something right !

We booked the chefs table for a friend’s 30th. The table sits 6 people and you have an incredible view into the kitchen. Amazing food - every detail had been considered, the chef that made each course came out to present it as it was served. Such a wonderful treat and incredibly reasonable for a tasting menu of its kind. We had a fabulous time - Tom and team in the kitchen, thank you very much for looking after us!

High quality gourmet dining, especially for a local North London eatery! this is usually an expensive restaurant but we lucked out because of their 20th anniversary birthday celebrations - they have offered a highly affordable prefix menu, with no compromise to quality of cuisine ! Exquisite fine dining although not really suitable for kids.

We live in PH so we try to save Odette’s for special occasions or exceptional menus. The 10 year anniversary menu created for Bryn’s Tenure was the reason for our visit. Though very unfortunately they overserved the special menu at lunch and by the time our dinner booking rolled around, the kitchen had run out of almost all courses of the 10 year anniversay menu which really defeated the purpose of dining. Odette’s has a lovely a la carte menu, but my disappointment for not having any of the anniversary courses overshadowed the experience, and hence my unhappy rating.

Also a note about temperature inside. Don’t sit near the window/door unless you like a draft. We were two tables from the front window, and I couldn’t keep warm, despite long sleeves and wool scarf. Almost grabbed my coat off the rack as it was that much of a draft. This was also on account of the restaurant being very empty on the night. I’m sure with more bodies it could have been warmer.

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 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
