Gorgeous Primrose Hill fine dining

The welcome is warm. The premises inviting. The food as good to look at as it is delicious to eat. The Welsh influences of the chef are apparent, but not overwhelmingly so. So a fairly carnivorous menu, but with plenty of fish but only a couple of veggie options. A garden for summer months is also... read more

Had lunch here with friends on a Friday. Sat in the table in the window. Although tempted by the, very reasonable, set menu, we all decided to go a la carte. The food was delicious, the wine recommendations good and the service friendly, efficient and without fault. Loved my choices, Asparagus followed by lamb, with kale on the side, but... More

The food was really well presented and very flavourful. We enjoyed our meals very much. The interior is a vast improvement from before, with a fresh design and casual ambiance.

Had a very enjoyable evening meal at Odette's last night. Having eaten there previously I knew the treat that was in store ahead of us - and it certainly didn't disappoint! Can't remember the chap's name who looked after us but he was very attentive, good humoured, and knowledgeable about the produce. The food itself was first class and there... More

This is my new favourite North London restaurant. Impeccable service, attentive, friendly and intuitive. Thoroughly enjoyable food where the vegetables as well as the fish and shellfish dishes we chose sang their flavour to us. Perfect for a romantic couples visit, friends meal or family outing. There are lots of small nooks and ante rooms so you never feel on... More

I was fortunate enough to dine here a few months ago. Unfortunately, I didn't write my review sooner so that I would remember in more detail what I had! There was no room for us in the main restaurant, so we had to go downstairs which was a little disappointing as I'm sure the overall atmosphere would have been better... More

Dined here last week, we were seated right at the back of the restaurant downstairs despite there being loads of spare tables that evening at the front upstairs - found this quite rude... The service was slow, especially given that the restaurant wasn't very busy. We received some lovely bread and olives while we waited for our food to arrive,... More

We had a group of 7 for our business dinner. Odette's seated us in their private room which created an intimate setting for our group. The server handled my special request for shared appetizers and recommendations like a true pro. The food was fantastic all-around, including appetizers, mains, and desserts, and nobody left anything on their plates. The Ceviche was... More

We went for lunch last Saturday as part of a 30th birthday weekend away; it was really lovely. Set in the quirky Primrose Hill area, our meal was brilliant and great value! I went for the chicken and black pudding starter while the mrs had the hen's egg with farfalle- both were incredibly tasty! The black pudding was intense and... More
