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 delicious and the service and atmosphere were as good as ever. However the portions (main cod course and main sirlion) were far too small - not good enough for that (or any!) price. I would probably recommend but I won’t be rushing back.

Lovely place in a pretty quiet part of London . Lovely to feel the French approach to food again. The vegetarian taster menu was delicious. Service just a bit slow at the beginning, made up for by the quiet celebrities we dined in the company of.

We had a great family(all adult) lunch. The food and service were excellent, well above the norm.
Only slight gripe was that the turbot was an extra to the set menu but the portions were pretty small. However that was minor, we would all head straight back for another meal.

Had a fantastic dinner on a Saturday night. The food was excellent, service friendly and attentive and much fun was had. Highlights for me were the Pork Head Croquette and the Cod. I can not comment on the Odette’s Jaffa Cake as my daughter said it was too good to share!

Very relaxing restaurant, tables generously spaced, noise levels thankfully are conversation conducive. Food is generally prettily presented, competent and professional with a salute to chef-owner's welsh origins. But I find it a but too tilted towards calories, creaminess and carbs. especially if you are tempted by the delicious soda bread while waiting for starters.

first time diner, I was pleasantly surprised with the spring set menu. The service was impeccable, the food amazing and the portions generous. I’ve never had duck that delicious—perfectly crispy and tender, just falling off the bone. The spring vegetables were a perfect balance. Absolutely master class.

This beautiful local restaurant with understated but stylish decor, and a lovely calm atmosphere, was perfect for a Thursday lunchtime treat with my husband. The set menu was excellent value and although portions were delicate, every mouthful was delicious and considered with surprising flavours and textures popping up. We will visit again.

A lovely evening - it was a quiet Wednesday night. The maître d' was very pleasant and welcoming. The other waiter was a little distant and stand-offish which was surprising as it was such a quiet evening. Sea scallops to start with tiny chicken wings were delicious. The velouté with the halibut was divine. The halibut was cooked to perfection - crispy on the outside. It was a little on the lukewarm side but apart from that very good - beautifully presented. Loved the menu with the Welsh produce. Loved the bara brith with rhubarb which had just the right amount of sweet tartness. My husband had the cheese plate which had three very generous portions of Welsh, Irish and French cheese.

The service was good but not perfect, drinks were muddled for the aperitif which wasn’t a brilliant start. The food was good but food temperature was disappointing so for a main course the most important part of the meal was a bit of a let down.

Unfortunately wouldn’t go back, compared to a lot of a lovely restaurants we have visited this isn’t one of them.

We booked a table here specifically because we had heard that the vegetarian tasting menu was very good. The food was delicious and the service was very attentive too.

My only slight complaint is that the waiters kept “checking” that my husband definitely wanted the vegetarian menu (rather than the meat one), and that was very irritating. We’d specified when booking that we’d *both* like it (both of us being vegetarians, not just me), and to be asked three times felt judgemental. I’m sure they thought they were doing him a favour, but they just made it feel a little awkward.

Overall it was very nice though, and I’d happily go back.
