Squaremeal Review of ODE Dining ?

“A great local restaurant with the right ideals”, ODE Dining started out with admirable green credentials and has never wavered in its eco-friendly approach. Owners Tim and Clare Bouget fitted out their cosy, three-storey Georgian townhouse according to strict environmental principles, and Tim’s kitchen is fully committed to using accredited organic produce. He’s also passionate about sourcing seasonal and regional ingredients (including sustainable line-caught fish and traditionally reared meats) for a creative modern menu that comes with a healthy undercurrent and smattering of global influences. You might find soy-cured Teign salmon with daikon, pak choi and ginger miso or summer vegetable bhajis with spiced butternut squash purée and sumac yoghurt, ahead of herb-crusted hake with crispy sand eels, sugar snaps and citrus butter or Eversfield lamb rump and Moroccan-spiced breast with smoked aubergine, chickpeas and tahini. This is “top-class cooking”, matched by a forward-thinking, all-organic/biodynamic wine list full of fine bottles. ODE has recently branched out with family-friendly cafés at Gara Rock and Ness Cove, which is also home to the Two Beach Brewing Company.

Jul 2015

Three years ago we booked here but were unable to make it. On the evidence of this meal it would certainly have made it onto our "must go back to" list, where it definitely figures now. The intimate surroundings (the 24 covers claimed for the dining room seemed to be pushing it a bit, although we felt we had more than enough room to indulge ourselves), the friendly service and the amiable presence of chef/owner Tim Bouget in the dining room as well as at the pass in the open kitchen delivered...
