The Eatery has a relaxed ambience, serving both simplicity & style. ‘It’s all in the details’, said Husband & Wife Duo Owners Joost & Clare van den Berg
Built around its local produce driven cuisine, with a focus on the changing seasons. Drawing on flavours from the Mediterranean with a blend of Levantine & African Spice.
These influences are strong in our cooking but the cupboard is wide & the menu ever changing.
The Eatery puts a creative spin on seasonal fare, drawing flavours and inspiration from around the globe.
We want our food to make people happy & we are proud to be working with small local & artisan food producers in New Zealand.
The space designed by Co-Owner Clare van den Berg combines textures, timelessness & luxury to the space with accents of a Scandinavian Feel.
Beautiful finishings include touches from Auckland design meccas, Simon James Design & Nat Cheshire for Resident.
Josh Kucharick is Head Chef & creative force behind our food at Odettes Eatery.
Born and raised Quebecois Canadian, he has spent most of his culinary career travelling and working around the world in a host of landmark establishments throughout Canada, the Carribean, the Middle East, Australia & now New Zealand.
His experience in such varied & dynamic locals have been the greatest influence upon his cooking style; giving him a firm base of a number of Cuisines which he uses to create something unique to Odettes & to Auckland.
He believes in simplicity & depth, heritage & creativity, and above all the use of great product & the support of the local producers
Born and raised in Grey Lynn, General Manager Poi Eruera began her hospitality career in Italy at age 16, when she found herself working at a prestigious restaurant just outside of Milan.

She is passionate about people, big smiles, bright lipstick & Odettes Eatery.
We love her & the lovely warm presence she brings every day.
