One of the best places to have lunch. Loved everything on the menu. The place is nice and cozy.
The food tastes really good. You should try out the Earl's secret brownie :) The staff ( from the gardening ladies, front desk & waiters ) were very kind. The garden is just brilliant, got to know from one of the gardeners that they have a special variety of flowers from Germany. Downside is there were a lot of house fly's. You need to do something about them.
Would definitely go back again with family and friends :)

We were hunting for a good place to eat and i read wonderful reviews about this place. Its located at a deserted place so if you had your vehcile you could go easily as its a little to the outer. The restaurant is more of like a old Huge house which is restructered and converted into this wonderful place. I loved the outside dining area specially the Glass house. This place is a must go if you are looking for good food, otherwise Ooty doesnt have many restaurants that offer delicious food. the food was amazing.. out of the blue and the Brownie was fabulous.

The restaurant has one thing going for it - the location. Obviously the views are stunning, but the service was truly disappointing. Out table of 5 was ignored completely because we were sharing the glasshouse seating with a table of 30. They wouldn't switch on the music for us, but immediately switched it on for the other table when they asked for it. The food is good, but overall, not the best experience.

Its a must see place in ooty.. As mentioned in previous posts,I found it difficult to find the place especially at night.its an heritage property converted to restaurant/hotel. The furniture, fireplace and the whole property with the lawn gives a colonial style.

The food was very tasty.. Especially the special Brownie.. Love concerts were not there on the day I visited as the musician was on leave.

Enjoyed my time over there..

Ooty for some reason doesn't have good restaurants. Even food at Taj Savoy is not all that great. Based on a recommendation, we visited this restaurant and found the food to be very good. It is a bit difficult to reach this place as it is on top of a small hill and outside the crowded town....luckily one of the auto rickshaw took us there and brought us back. The restaurant is in a old heritage house which is converted as a hotel now. Interesting place for a quiet evening family dinner.
