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.

Odette's is the only really good restaurant in North West London. Never had a bad meal there.

Amazing food and service-will definitely return soon. The lunch time menu is ridiculously good value and excellent quality. We’ve eaten in a few other restaurants in the area over the past few weeks, and Odette’s was the best by far!

My starter - soup - was fantastic.
All food was very tasty with interesting flavours.
Vegetarian rissotto Main course was good, not large, no veg though, so asked for some, which came very quickly, but was oily, although nicely crisp. Could have done with colour eg steamed carrots / red cabbage, as it looked dull.
Desserts quite good.
Price crept up, we were on a £35 budget, but it came to over £50 per head.
Water bottles were refillable @ £4.25

Sunday lunch at Odette’s on a lovely warm day. Primrose Hill was very busy but Odette’s is a haven of calm in the middle of it all. The Sunday roast was perfect and was rounded off with an apricot soufflé which was light as a feather. Fantastic!

Lively yet relaxed atmosphere, professional and knowledgeable staff, interesting menu. Our Sunday lunch experience was very pleasant. We had the 3 course menu which is great value for money. All the dishes were tasty and well presented. Highly recommended!

A very, very special place. It feels very small and cosy although there are different rooms giving more space than appears at first.

The food is beautiful. The service discreet and friendly. It's just a wonderful restaurant and has become our special occasion place.

The tasting menu (with wine pairing in my case) was excellent. The variety and combinations of food were excellent and the portion size were just right so as not to make one feel like a glutton. It was the same story with the wine pairing: a small glass with each course that really complimented the food well.

Chosen as it is a local restaurant but the first time we’d been and it felt like an intimate restaurant in the west end. Food was well presented and service attentive.

As delightful as ever, the staff charming, even behind their masks, the food witty and flavoursome and both the room and the pavement area full of buzz and gratification.

Lovely old school charm and meal at Odette's, as ever. Very nice crispy pig's head to start. On the pricey end of the scale.

Always enjoy the food and the staff are very friendly. I think the ambiance in the garden at the back could be greatly improved though. They are rather ugly tables ( perhaps a cloth) or if not how about candles? The canopy needs finishing or at least a parasol available should it rain.

Just lovely. I sat inside and had the ludicrously cheap set lunch.
Amazing parfait, beautiful piece of hake - those amazing translucent flakes of fish, Panna cotta.
Ok bill grew a little with the two glasses of Burgundy but lovely meal.
Room was cool with low light levels, a perfect rest from the brilliant sunshine outside.
Staff were polite, quick and unobtrusive.
Thank you Odette's
