An excellent meal is never just about the food—and Odette is a fine example of that. Every component is part of a symphony, from the service (completely faultless) to the modern interiors, and from Dawn Ng’s ceiling installation to the exquisite tableware sourced by chef Julien Royer. It’s refined yet unassuming, and carries with it a certain je ne sais quoi that makes a meal wonderful. Memories are created in every corner and tables are set up for cosy conversations—and of course, there’s the sumptuous food. Chef Julien has a strong finesse for fresh, seasonal produce that can be tasted in the tomato tart (a recent addition) and the heirloom beetroot variation. Each portion is hearty, too; even a four-course set lunch will leave you satisfied. Truly, Odette knows how to serve up happiness on a plate and is entirely deserving of its numerous global accolades.
