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 seven days a week in the Odette's split level dining room, walled garden and terraced seating area.

We are very thankful to the restaurant having stayed open but not sure now since the current review by the government telling everyone to shut down.
We had also the unexpected pleasure to see Bryn Williams and we all hope that after these difficult times Odette's will be reopening to business as usual.
many thanks also to the staff who have been very curteous and considerate.

We ordered the Tasting Menu with matching wines. Food, wine and service were excellent. Expensive as would be expected, but worth it

Food was fantastic. Service was good but felt we like we were being rushed through the meal. The lunch menu is excellent value for money, but as with most restaurants wine is stupidly expensive. Overall it was a great experience. This was my third time dining here and out of the three was the least enjoyable. Would recommend and will probably return.

We went for the set lunch which was first class we also chose the carafes of house wine which were excellent value for money as was the whole experience, first-class service, it must be one of the best value/quality venues in London for lunch.

I often find French food too fussy, but odettes strike the right balance. The steak Tartare was excellent and my main of hake and pork also very good. Big wine list at different price points. Attentive but not over bearing service. We were in the library at the back of the restaurant which is a little pokey. But overall pretty good - would go back.

Delicious food and wine. Sunday lunch good value with choice of 4 in each course. Complimentary bread and cheese balls to begin. Will return. Recommend booking as it is very popular. Pleasant walk from Chalk farm station but unfortunately it we did not go for a walk on Primrose hill afterwards as it rained. Met in the Queens pub for a pre meal drink. Would have loved to have met the famous chef Bryn Williams. Next time 🤞.

Great food along with a great service!

We both had the set menu along with the wine pairing. Both were really really good. I felt we got our money’s worth. Along with that, the service was also faultless.

We booked for 6.30 to take advantage of the winter offer of 3 courses plus a glass of prosecco for £35, which was such good value we added a bottle of wine. Excellent food and service and we will definitely go back next time we are in London.

Careless service distracted from excellent food
IF you managed to get the waiters attention you MIGHT receive what you had requested in quite a leisurely way. Asking twice or thrice worked! and any request for salt was not supplied. Such service distracts from the quite excellent cooking and the conversation and meant that I left irritated and wish I had gone somewhere that wasn't so pleased with itself-deservedly for the kitchen.

The food was certainly very good, but given the reputation of Bryn Williams, and of the restaurant as an absolute local classic, we weren't completely wowed. The truffle risotto was a trifle too cheesy, and the slow cooked beef shin base to the excellent monkfish tasted a bit more like corned beef than it ideally would have. Overall a lovely evening, with some excellent service and some very good wine!
