Ate at ODE on the last test kitchen evening. Despite the sombre time that is approaching with the closure of ODE, the team are the ultimate professionals. The service, ambience and food could not be faulted! Thanks team for a wonderful evening and all the best for your future endeavours

It is always a great experience to dine at Ode. Great service and the personal touch that goes with each course. Excellent wine matching advice.

Our 3-course chef's menu at 'Ode' was truly a culinary experience we will remember for a long time. Such care and thought taken to balance texture, flavour and visual presentation, and we enjoyed the personalised description of the different elements of each dish. Recommendations for wine were also excellent and service overall was efficient, unobtrusive but attentive.

Enjoyed trust the chef’s 3 course dinner. Attention to details, personal service, very efficient, very relaxing atmosphere. I hope someone will buy, invest in this place or they will close on the 8th nov. It’s worth while to keep.

Food was great, highlights for me were the soup and dessert. Service great too and the recommendation of the dry riesling with the dessert was spot on. Got a bit noisy later on so was hard to talk. Really enjoyed the evening, thanks to all the team.

So impressed with the professional, informed, friendly staff and gorgeous food. Delighted to find staff friendly and relaxed yet efficient - not stuffy and too formal. Every dish was a taste sensation, made with obvious care regarding flavour, texture, source and presentation. This has to be one of the best places to eat anywhere in the country or world. Impressed also with the fact they remembered that one person at our table could not eat chilli or mushrooms and catered accordingly. We had the 5 course test kitchen and so pleased that we did. Such a pleasure to eat beautifully prepared dishes you wouldn't make at home, and discover new combinations of ingredients. Every dish a winner - even the main course which often suffers compared to starters. Kia kaha Ode - Kia manawanui.

We had a fantastic “Test Kitchen“ menu dinner (one Plant based and one Wild shot game) at Ode which exceeded our expectations. The food was creative and flavourful using the best of local organic ingredients in line with the team’s philosophy and values. Beautifully presented and what a joy to experience. The simple menu makes you wonder in anticipation- it’s worth it! Favourite items were the pumpkin butter milk and curly kale soup for my husband and mine was the deconstructed apple crumble which cleverly encompassed the warmth of poached apples that had been caramelised along with cold home made Apple Sorbet and moist financier almond cake and dehydrated cake to make the crumble so you had an interesting play of temperatures and textures in the mouth all at one time, it also was perfectly balanced and not too sweet so a perfect finish to a wonderful dinner. Many thanks to the team at Ode. We will be back on our next trip to Wanaka.
