Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This cafe has a great vibe. The staff are really friendly, really nice furniture and fittings and while always full it isn’t at all noisey. The menu has a great range and although a bit pricey you get what you pay for. Quality!! Top tasty...food and superb coffee. Can recommend the “ complete “ as all you need. Not at all over the top but a nice balance of quantity and quality.More

Delicious lunch meal. Octopus was yummy. Cauliflower was also great. Wood-Fired Puff Bread was a good starter. Service was excellent.

Lovely spot for breakfast (and they also serve lunch). Great range of food on the menu. The crepes and the granola were excellent and the coffees are delicious. Really helpful staff too, our waiter couldn’t have done more to get us a table out of...the direct and intense sun. Very relaxed dining experience, such a nice vibe.More

What a wickedly cool lunch! I booked late for a table for 6 people, on the day turned into 8, then 10 just before we arrived. The staff managed to accommodate our late change and made us feel welcome - although they were clearly very...busy for a Monday luncheon! The tapas style menu suited our table - fish (gurnard) was very tasty, the beef succulent and my vegetarian falafel dish on kumara, very tasty. A nice range of beers on tap - finished off a great luncheon of very tasty food! We'll be back!More

Unbelievable food, service not attentive Everything we ordered was so tasty, the setting on the patio very lovely. The service was terrible, very slow in bringing us our dishes and just didn’t come around to check on us. We had dinner here and all the...dishes were good.More

So much energy for a breakfast place. Great menu from traditional offerings to unexpected fare. Fried chicken was superb, Black Bean Falafel was yummy and the Bloody Marys were nicely spicy

Perfect! Best chicken I have ever had. Crispy skin and juicy meat. Prawns were huge and the oysters were fresh. Our waiter was lovely. Beautiful decor too.

A dull and unhappy place. Not a smile to be had from any of the staff at the opening of the day. A miserable experience but the food was good

**The Good:** Oh, let me tell you about my wonderful experience at Odettes Eatery in Auckland! As soon as I walked in, I was captivated by the charming blend of modern elegance and cozy vibes. The staff greeted me with genuine warmth, making me feel...like a cherished guest. The menu is an absolute treasure trove of unique flavors, presenting dishes that were not only a feast for the taste buds but also a feast for the eyes. **The Bad:** Now, I won't sugarcoat it – Odettes Eatery is a bit on the pricey side. But honestly, after savoring their exquisite dishes, I can totally understand why. The dedication to quality and the culinary craftsmanship is worth every penny. On a busy evening, you might have to wait a tad longer for a table, but trust me, the anticipation only heightens the excitement. **The Ugly:** Okay, truth be told, I had to really dig deep to find anything even remotely negative about Odettes Eatery. If I had to nitpick, it would be the parking situation. Finding a spot nearby can be a bit of a challenge, but hey, it's a small price to pay for the gastronomic delight that awaits you inside. Summing it all up, Odettes Eatery isn't just a restaurant; it's a memory in the making. From the enchanting ambience to the impeccable service, and of course, the mouthwatering dishes, this place has won me over completely. Whether it's a special occasion or simply a craving for something extraordinary, Odettes Eatery is an experience that will leave you with a heart full of happiness and a belly full of goodness.More

Had brunch here with the wife and it was superb. Super fresh - one of us had scrambled eggs. The other had the Odette complete (without bacon which was also deducted from the price - appreciated as that doesn’t always happen in my experience). The...whipped feta was absolutely delicious. Great coffee and relaxed vibe.More

Odettes served the best breakfast that I have ever had. We both had the Odettes Complete with poached eggs and awesome awesome bacon. Our drinks, a chai tea and flat white, were also wonderful. The staff were very cheerful, friendly and efficient. Next time I...am in Auckland I will be eating here again.More

I'm sure they wouldn't be vaguely interested in holding a party for that many people as it would overrun the restaurant and it's not that sort of place
