This is not the first time we have eaten here but the food and service have always been outstanding. If it could get better, I think it has. A warm log fire makes you feel at home (particularly in the winter!). The food then follows at a relaxed pace. Bread with a selection of butter and oils, duck starter was... More

We visited Ode on Christmas Eve. All four of us had been before, but for no particular reason, had not eaten there recently. We soon realised what we had been missing. We received the warmest of welcomes from Tim and his team. The atmosphere in the restaurant pleasantly quiet. The food was wonderful and, as always, beautifully presented. Everything was... More

What a beautiful place! The food is superb, local, organic and fresh. Booking in advanced is essential, as the restaurant only has a few tables. Staff and owner are impeccable, super attentive without being pushy. It's much more than just eating out it's a dining experience. It's a must go!!

We had the tasting menu and accompanying flight of wines. As always the meal was superb. So good that I can't single out a single component as standing out! Everything was just gorgeous! If you haven't been to ODE dinning and you like great food then you must visit! Thanks you Tim and your team.

We visited ODE on recommendation and all I can say is we are very glad we did. A quaint, intimate restaurant in Shaldon offering some of the best foods I've tasted in a long time. Our group opted for the tasting menu which really showed off the talented chef's capabilities.

We were in shaldon for a long weekend, hadn't booked anywhere for Saturday evening, we popped in to see if there was a table available... How very lucky were we, they'd had a cancellation. The young lady and the young man taking orders, and pouring the drinks, were an absolute credit to the cafe, fantastic knowledge of the food and... More

I visited Ode dinning with 3 friends for my birthday. Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff who are very helpful and professional. We had bread on arrival with 3 different butters (goats, olive and riverford butter), then squid to start which was delicious! Main was beef with a burnt onion crust which was out of this world! Full of flavour and... More

Enjoyed the taster menu here last week. Food was amazing, service great and lovely setting. Will definitely visit again to try the full versions of the food tried on the taster menu - great to have such an impressive restaurant just up the road!

Treated to a surprise anniversary meal here and it was amazing. The venue is small, romantic and personal without feeling you are listening to each other's conversation. The three course set meal we had was outstanding as was the quiet service from our host. We were treated to a few amuse bouche along the way which added to the experience.... More
