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.

    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!!

    Had the set lunch and some extra desserts, was excellent and could not fault it either for quality or value. Service was good, felt the chief waiter guys were maybe a little too stuffy for what is a relaxed lunch service where it was quiet. Would definitely return, great location and food to match.

    We were five people and I had said that it was a Birthday celebration and also that we would like somewhere quiet. They sat us in a sort of private room with a view over the rest of the restaurant. There was the option to close a curtain if the noise from below got too much - but it didn't. The food was excellent and beautifully served. We weren't pushed to drink more than we wanted - as happens in some restaurants. As a birthday "treat " we were served with some delicious desert squares which were both sweet and tart on a plate with the words Happy Birthday. We were last here 22 years ago when looking for somewhere to have a small reception after my son and daughter in law got married. We won't leave it as long to come back again.

    Food was, as ever, delicious. The Jaffa cake is a classic who’s pleasure never, ever fades! However the service was much less friendly than we’ve experienced in the past. Nothing wrong with it, however it lacked that personal touch that typically makes it such a pleasure to dine at the one and only Odette’s
