Went here a couple of weekends ago. Warm greeting on arrival and was seated promptly. Food was superb and excellently presented. Chef came out an introduced himself which i thought was a nice touch. The only thing i though could be improved on was there was not enough space between tables. I found myself having to shuffle my chair to... More

This is a small restaurant which unfortunately only opens on Friday and Saturday evenings and you do need to book in advance. However the food is superb. They now offer a tasting menu which is well balanced and highlights seasonal local food. I found the portion sizes perfect, you can eat the entire meal without feeling excessively full at the...

The night before we got married 6 of us dinned at Ode. It really reinforced what a proper restaurant should be. From the minute we walked through the door to the warm welcome we knew it was going to be a great night. Tim and his staff are both skilled and pleasure to be with. The food was explained, brilliant... More

We stayed a few days in Shaldon and on a recommendation went to ODE fine dining it was a truly fabulous evening. We had the taster menu and every course was a delight. Nothing was too much trouble thank you Tim and your team for a wonderful evening.

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!!
