Ooty is a paradise for all the tourists especially during the Summer Season when the sun is burning hot in the entire country. Well, we too decided to run away from the scorching heat of Mumbai into somewhere the sun couldn’t even touch us, and that’s when we decided to visit Ooty.
Beautiful place, everything about Ooty was as beautiful as we were told. And then how could we have missed having a memorable lunch at the famous Earl’s Secret Multi-cuisine restaurant which our friend who studied in one of Ooty’s School had recommended. We had a pleasant experience, and here’s why everybody must visit Earl’s Secret during their stay in Ooty
Situated at Havelock Road in Charring Cross, this restaurant is a part of Hotel Kings Cliff. The Hotel is not a building, but a vintage bungalow which they have renovated as per the latest requirements. The restaurant is just outside the Hotel, and guess what it is a glass restaurant. Outside the restaurant is a beautiful garden. Very, serene and gorgeous, the city’s hustle and bustle is no more a tension here.
Rating – 4.5/5
It is a multi-cuisine restaurant, so you get Mughlai, Chinese as well as Continental Food here. From Italian Pastas to steak, and the Kebabs, you’ll get stuff that can really wake up the foodie in you. What’s more, the ambience just makes you even more hungry. The food we had was steak and pasta. Not many restaurants serve you tasty pastas when you order pasta in white sauce, but this was pretty good. Even the amount of chicken in the pasta was good. And yes, do not forget to order their Garlic bread!
The quantity was good and so was the quality of food. The chicken starters that we had was yummy as well. What’s more, since Earl’s secret is all about lazy fine dining, we cherished the food even more I guess. What’s more, while your order come, you can enjoy a walk in the green lawn.

Staff and Service
We reached around 12.30 in the afternoon for the lunch and as soon as we went the staff started their work. It was empty and as peaceful as the surrounding. The staff was friendly and courteous. The service was quick too. I cannot do without that extra olive oil when I have my Italian pasta, and so when I asked them to bring, they were quick enough. What’s more, the staff won’t let the empty plates to stay on your table for long. They are quick, and at your call always. We had a good experience with the staff.

It is situated at Charring Cross – If you have a car of your own it is fine. However, if you are taking an auto, you’ll have to walk and come till the main area because you won’t get any auto. My suggestion – do not miss that pleasant stroll back the the main road, that’s what I enjoyed the most.
Overall Rating – 4/5
Do Visit Earl’s Secret with your loved one if you are in Ooty. Nothing can beat a romantic lunch/dinner with your spouse in this gorgeous glass restaurant!
