Description: Odette's Restaurant & Bar is 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 six days a week (Tuesday to Sunday)in the Odette's split level dining room, walled garden and terraced seating area.

“Santes Dwynwen Day heaven”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

For Dwynwen's day romance Odette provided an absolute dining and tasting delight. We chose the tasting menu with wines and was astounded by the food and service for the whole evening. Probably one of the best meals we have ever shared in a lovely styled restaurant which has a cosy ambience.

“Good local restaurant”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

We'd read some good reviews about Odette's on various occasions and were less familiar with the restaurants scene around Primrose Hill. As a result we decided to try them out while they were offering a special Valentine's tasting menu.

Although the name of the restaurant does give it away, I hadn't realised that there was a proper bar area connected to Odette's, located in the basement. And I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised by decoration, dark and soulful, with different corners where you can snuggle away during the warm winter months with a nice cocktail in hand.

The restaurant itself is located on the ground floor. When we visited Odette's we decided to try the Valentine's tasting course, which consisted of:
-Tuna tartare, rillettes, chargrilled (7.5/10)
-Roast beef sirloin, hash brown, wild mushroom (7.5/10)
-St marcellin cheese, celery, apricot (7.5/10)
-Chocolate Souffle, parfait, mousse (7.5/10)

The cooking at Odette's is off high standard, that much is clear. Also, the attention given to detail by the staff is good and the matching wine flight worked well with the dishes.

The total bill at Odette's came to £150 (including service charge, one wine flight to go with the tasting menu, one mocktail, a bottle of water and 1 glass of wine). Taking all into account Odette's is a good alternative when you're in the area and looking for a good meal.

Never been to Primrose Hill before. Busy restaurant for a Tuesday night in January, but felt really cosy and service and food were excellent.

Had a great meal, service was very good, comfortable and relaxed setting, good wine list, priced very well, and the food was exceptional, especially the crayfish lasagne, make sure you visit, same level as a Michelin star restaurant but half the price.
