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 Wednesday to Sunday in the Odette's split level dining room, walled garden and terraced seating area.

    The food was really outstanding. We had scallop ceviche and lamb, both perfectly done. The lamb was pink and juicy with a beautiful layer of crispy fat. The restaurant itself is very attractive, with a nice garden at the back. I'd go as far as to say Odette's was better than many Michelin-starred restaurants I've been to. Highly recommended.

    Every time I go, I'm floored by the creativity of texture and flavour combinations. The strawberry, vanilla, basil dessert was soo good with the subtle lemon flavour and delicious ice cream, it just made me feel really happy and all my worries went like a ratatouille moment and I appreciate it. I'd not only recommend it to a friend, but I told them I'd pay their bill and brought them along just to show them how good the experience is.

    I would like to rave about Odette’s as I love this restaurant and have had many many absolutely fabulous meals there. On this occasion the food was distinctly underwhelming and it felt as if the chef was trying to be too clever with the Ingredients but didn’t pull it off. The good things were delicious cheese puffs, home made soda bread and fabulous salty butter, excellent attentive service, lovely decor, good wine. The starters were where things started to go astray. The scallop ceviche was a bizarre combination of flavours which simply didn’t complement one another. The eel on one hand lacked texture (perhaps one side should have been browned) and on the other was overwhelmed by leeks and a variety of other superfluous ingredients- the terrine was fine but not remarkable. Onto mains, the lamb was better received than the pork - there was a concensus opinion that the pork’s seasoning was overwhelming - I quite enjoyed parts of the lamb dish - it was cooked two ways , the round medallion was delicious but the two slices may have been cooked in a Bain Marie (couldn’t be sure) and weren’t that pleasant, the gnocchi was not gnocchi and not interesting, the yoghurt was borrowed from a Middle Eastern dish somewhere and had nothing to offer to the lamb the potatoes tasted like sour cream and chive crisps and weren’t very pleasant. I didn’t try the puddings but the rest of the table were unimpressed by the strawberry sandwich. It’s a shame I know the food can be extraordinary at odette’s but whoever designed these current dishes is off the boil. They pride themselves on fresh in season ingredients and I don’t doubt that they are but the devil is in the detail. Don't try to be too clever Odettes please.

    Mu companion and I only had the set lunch (starter and main course) which while modest in size (with no choices) was very good even if the pate was perhaps a bit too rich and creamy. But the setting on the pavement was fine if a bit cramped and I would have preferred to be in the courtyard at the back of the building if it still exists. It is a long time since I was last there.

    They really don't need another review telling everyone how amazing the food is here. The menu is always very tight but on the flip side, everything always tastes so good. A mix of in-season ingredients cooked by a team who know what they are doing. Front of house also professional to a "T". Highly recommend for any celevratory occasion. The night we went, the restaurant was quiet which my parents appreciated!!
