We (two of us) went for dinner at Odette's on Friday the 3rd of June 2011. Having been to this restaurant before, well, couple of years back, when it had just started under new ownership of Bryn Williams, we had a pleasant experience and the restaurant provided us that feeling of eating there again. The ambience hadnt changed, we discovered that there is a small garden tucked in at the basement although it wasnt in a good condition. We started our evening with x2 cocktails, Negrano – a gin and martini based concoction and Bellini. Both the drinks were fairly staple drinks but they costed us a ridiculously expensive £9.50/- a glass. For the starters, we had crab lasgane and scallops. The scallops were succulent and nice but not delicious. I thought the crab lasagne didnt taste like crab to start with and it tasted of cheese although the sauce accompanying the crab dish in the middle compensated the taste a liitle but definately didnt deliver overall. We chose a New Zealand, Marlbourough, Sauvinon Blanc to accompany our meal, hand on heart, the wine menu is too expensive for the repertoire it boasted of. For example, there were wines on the menu I had before, and one of them in particular would have costed in mid-£20s in other Central London restaurants, was priced at £41/-!! The wine we had wasnt spectacular either but it carried a high price tag. Coming back to the main course, well, less I talk about it, better it is because we did not like our main courses at all! I had the Sea Trout which tasted bland, raw in the middle, presentation was poor and I thought the catch wasnt fresh. My friend had a Halibut which was slightly better than the Trout but again the dish did not deliver on taste. In between the meals, the chef sent through a complimentary sample of soup (waiter didnt know what it was! but) which tasted absolutely fantastic and we thought that would be the standard for the evening to follow but aghast we were hugely disappointed. We will not visit again as the standard seems to have gone down but the prices have gone up from as if they were low in the first place! because it wasnt…
