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.

2nd time in this restaurant. This time for Sunday lunch. Roast beef was perfect, pink, tender , lots of flavour. Desserts are incredible, as are the starters. The flavours are incredible . This is a real winner for us, we have dined in some of the most expensive restaurants in London but for actual eating experience it wins hands down, but perhaps not so luxurious in decor or seating .Portions are on the small side but not the Sunday roast.

We have developed a Saturday tradition of going to Odette’s for the set lunch. It is tremendous value and the food is amazing. The service and ambience are top notch.

We go to Odette's once a month more or less. We obviously love the place, the food and the service. The one thing they could improve is offering bread with the whole meal and not just the the one half bread per person per meal. It is the only thing I miss when I am there. Will not stop me from going again of course!

We had 3 lunch course and la carte stater, main and desert- signature Jaffa cake.
It wasn’t enough food for lunch.
Food, service everything was good except that. And charged for extra bread.

We have waited for over a year to come to Odettes as we were due to visit last Christmas but were locked down.
The restaurant is set in the very pretty Primrose Hill and has a lovely feel about the place.
We had the tasting menu and it was really lovely,my favourite was the fish course but all were outstanding.
We also did the wine flyte which was excellent.
I will definitely return as the food was excellent and the service great.

Our (party of 4) experience last night at Odette's was excellent.

We were shown to a private room (not pre-booked) which made a very good start.

The service was excellent without at all being pushy. The food and wine were also excellent. It was a pity we had to leave at the end of the meal ! One of our party had a significant birthday (not flagged in advance or throughout the meal) and a suitable 'extra' appeared by magic at the end of the meal.

We managed to park easily within 100 yards of the restaurant.

Definitely will go again.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Odette's this week and it was wonderful. This is probably my fourth visit to Odette's and it never disappoints. The food is outstanding; every dish on the tasting menu was beautiful in taste and presentation. The staff are attentive but not intrusive. The atmosphere is friendly not stuffy like some Michelin restaurants can be. The price is what you would expect for a top-notch restaurant; sadly it will remain a special occasion restaurant for me rather than a regular visit. But that keeps it special! They even wrote Happy Anniversary on a plate in chocolate for us. Very sweet. I would recommend everyone to treat themselves to a meal at Odette's.
