We've been to the Culinarium several times. The pastries are definitely the highlight. The food is also good, but can be inconsistent in terms of taste and quality. The cost is a bit high, but there isn't another place in the area that offers anything similar. It is definitely the place to go to if you want to indulge in decadent treats!

Was here with my colleagues on a brief weekend trip to Ooty and I should admit that the stop over at this restaurant for lunch was easily the best part about the trip and among the most delightful meals I have ever had.

Why?
1. My love for baked food (read as pie, quiche, etc) and how the restaurant manages to deliver phenomenal stuff on this front.

2. The modest yet grand view from the cliff which is definitely a great spot for restaurant to be.

Must try's
- chicken quiche
- all of their pie offerings
- chocolate milkshake
- desserts (most of them were of good standard)

Could avoid
- bruschetta

If I am going back to Ooty, this place is a definite pitstop.
