What makes it special?

It’s a beautiful and extremely comfortable room, and out front there’s a terrific courtyard. Which means, with its menu full of delectable food, Odettes is the perfect spot for a catch-up with friends, a business “meeting”, a dinner for two or even some private time just for you.
Behind the scenes

Odettes keeps getting busier, and we’re not surprised. You can have puy lentils for breakfast, served with lime labneh, cashews, a savoury crêpe and poached egg. For lunch, sesame doughnuts with lemon mascapone, rose and honey? Well, you might want to build to that with confit octopus or a garden salad, perhaps. At night, they add dishes like crayfish tortellini, served with yoghurt curd, saffron cream and baby spinach. It’s all rather heavenly, really.
A favourite dish

Pork belly dumplings with maple and bourbon dressing and spring onion.
