Odettes Eatery, 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.
