Visited Ode last night to celebrate my birthday. Food, service and wine were fantastic. However, I think this restaurant lacked atmosphere. It was a very wet evening and our table for two was positioned so that we both faced a steamed up window and a large front door. A candle would have helped.

We booked a table before we went to shaldon and weren't disappointed. We had a lovely table, the food was beautiful and the service professional, friendly and relaxed. We bumped into the owner the day before who was very chattty - he recommended his other place and again we weren't disappointed - great fish and chips with a lovely own-brew... More

I recently went to this wonderful restaurant with my husband and parents and had a really great evening. The food is absolutely delicious and the staff were warm, friendly, professional and knowledgable. Highly recommended! We'll definitely be back.... :-)

What an excellent restaurant this is. The food is amazing. Nice choice of freshly cooked and organic food. The smell and taste of freshly baked rolls start the meal. Duck for me followed by Guinea Fowl and cheese (thankfully large enough for those that say no to desert and then eat yours). As usual we linger as the kids are... More

Amazing food, fantastic location and the most attentive service. We love the ethos and this has not resulted in anything but the most wonderful flavours and quality.

We are here with my in-laws. Everything from the booking onwards was thoughtful and pleasant experience. The food was excellent throughout from the home made bread with butter and olive tapenade, starters of butternut squash tortellini, four excellent mains, and fantastic cheeses to finish - all excellently cooked and beautifully presented, with enough but not too much explanation. Not a... More

Both being vegetarian, my husband and myself find it quite difficult to find interesting food. Most restaurants offer the same boring menu but Tim always produces food to excite the palate and leaves you with a feeling of having eaten really fresh good quality food. Having eaten at numerous restaurants around the world Ode would definitely be at the top... More

My review concurs with the many other reviews that applaud this little restaurant and nail the Chef extraordinaire's colours to the mast. A grand husband and wife partnership that heads a superb restaurant with a fine touch of French simplicity and a welcome 'front of house' customer care that can easily be overlooked. We have had the pleasure of dining... More

We ate here on a Wednesday so more limited choice but that did not prove to be a problem- everything was delicious. In starters and main courses we both found the ingredients were beautifully fresh and cooked so that you could savour the individual flavours and textures but they also came together as a wonderful whole. My husband was less... More

Booked this restaurant with very high expectations following all the wonderful reviews and unfortunately was disappointed. Presentation seemed more important than the food itself and there was barely enough of that to pass judgement. My starter (sea bass) was excellent but when the main course arrived it was virtually the same size as the starter, too small however prettily displayed.... More
