The food here is not exceptional so charging a price that's extremely high is not worth it at all.
Overall the place had a nice view and food was good but most dishes were outrageously expensive!

Would not visit again!

We, husband, son and 10 year old grandson, were indeed fortunate to have lunched here as our stay was short and weather, traffic etc.was unpredictable. The lovely ambience and delicious main course were “ every bite” relished and devoured !

Dessert! Mmmmm!

If we ever visit Conoor again , it will be , ” Culinarium ! here we come!”

Another tasty authentic Conti meal. Been coming here for the past five years and standards are still as good. Culinarium has upped the restaurant game in Ooty, I see there’s an improvement in older restaurants trying to keep up and new ones starting up. Service is excellent. Will be back nxt month too. Can’t wait.

This is a fine dining place in Conoor, located on a ridge overlooking farmland and tea estates. Their food and bakery products are to die for. We had thick creamy mushroom cappuccino soup, Spinash Cannellini, and Swiss Chard Quiche, the latter slightly overdone with the crust burnt. This went to dropping the rating from 5 to 4. There were flies all over the place, another minus point in their disfavour. Happy to notice the servers all wearing masks, unlike in other restaurants.
