Odettes Eatery

​Odettes Eatery is a charming all-day Eatery nestled in the heart of Auckland City, at City Works Depot.

Odettes Eatery

Simple yet sumptuous, Odettes Eatery offers exceptional Mediterranean-influenced dishes in a relaxed and stylish dining room and bar.

Odettes Eatery is centred around seasonality, innovation and locality.

Our menu draws on flavours from the Mediterranean, while also blending Levantine and African spices and global gastronomique influences.

It’s ever-changing, seasonal, punchy and bold, combining simple ingredients with touches of the extraordinary.

We’re proud to support local by working with our incredible team of artisans and food producers, hailing from all corners of Aotearoa.

Dine in casual luxury in our timeless and elegant space, with finishings and flourishes by Auckland design stalwarts Simon James Design and Nat Cheshire for Resident.

Visit our sibling restaurant Hugo’s Bistro on Auckland’s Shortland Street for more all-day dining, coffee, Aperitivo or sophisticated European fare.

At Odettes Eatery Jonah applies modern techniques to classic dishes, with flavour reigning supreme. He knows how to maximise the best of each ingredient, blend seasonal harvests with creativity and use local suppliers’ best produce.
