We had a lovely personal experience here!
The restaurant facilities were actually not open, but the manager on duty very politely obliged us with a great filter coffee & a mind-blowing lemon tea, accompanied by the most succulent chocolate brownie i've had in my life (without exaggeration!)
The ambience of the hotel transports one to the days of the Raj & the gentle drizzle added the right amount of romantic charm to the experience !
Will go back each time i visit Ooty !!

Earl's Secret is a glass house restaurant at the King's cliff hotel, Ooty. Beautiful scenic place set in a hill, with peaceful calm surrounding, around 4 km from the Ooty lake, it serves one of the finest continental food, I 've had.
The tables inside the glass house are few in number. So you may need to wait to for your table in the glass house, or get going with the tables in the adjacent King's cliff hotel building. We were lucky to get a table in the glass house, with out much delay.
Better to have your conveyance as it is a bit out of the way. If a rented vehicle, better to ask them to wait to drop you back to town, as getting a vehicle to return is difficult, or you've to walk a quite a bit to get a conveyance.

We were recently in Ooty. Earl's secret was a great choice. We had two meals, lunch and dinner. Both were excellent. Service was great. Food amazing. Live performance in the evening added to the charm. Definitely recommend to friends

While I have not seen much of Ooty, I can still say that this was one of the most romantic restaurants in Ooty. Located in Hotel kings Cliff, this tiny restaurant retains its old British charm. Lovely wooden furniture, walls lined with black and white photos, a cute fireplace ( actual working one) and an old man belting out 80s English songs completes the setting.

The service was very classy and the waiters were taught the perfect British manners!

The food was tasty, with a choice of continental, Indian and Chinese. The menu was a little limited in the continental section. The prices were high with each dish costing over 400 bucks in the continental main course.

But for the beautiful fine dine experience, it was worth the money.

Thank nivkay
