10 Stunning Restaurants in the Maldives – Places that offer the best dining experience

If you think that the Maldives is meant for watersports, you’d be wrong, the atolls surrounded by the Indian Ocean boasts many restaurants too. Planning your next vacation? Take note of these places.


Jazz Café

The café welcomes every calibre of people with a mix of Maldivian and international dishes. The main feature of the café is the talented local musicians playing jazz in the background while diners enjoying their dinner. Among the dishes you are most likely to enjoy are roast chicken with barbecue sauce, beef with onion stir fry, roshi and yellow chicken curry.


Palace Sichuan

If you are in the Maldives on your honeymoon, and would like to enjoy your meal just with each other without the crowds interrupting you, Palace Sichuan is the perfect spot for you. The Cantonese restaurant features several private dining rooms with the aim of attracting celebrities and honeymooners. The menu is usually packed with noodle-based dishes and a variety of rice dishes.



What if there’s a place in the conservative Maldives where you can grab a bite at any time of the day? – after all, you can’t really tell when you’ll be done with your fun excursions can you? Well, you’ve got a winner. Kitchen is a restaurant that operates around the clock boasting an eclectic range of dishes. The restaurant’s main feature, open cooking stations allows you to watch these skilled chefs prepare these beautiful dishes. Kitchen is also popular for its extraordinary sunset views.


Ithaa Undersea Restaurant

How would you like to dine below sea level? Well, Ithaa Undersea Restaurant has made it a possibility. Touting a range of European dishes, this exquisite venue offers its guests a six-course dinner in a setup made beautiful by wandering mantra rays and sharks. The menu specials include yellowtail kingfish, saffron champagne risotto and malossol imperial caviar.


Reethi Restaurant

With open kitchen areas where renowned chefs prepare your delectable meal, Reethi Restaurant offers its guests stunning views of the ocean. The menu is filled with Asian and Mediterranean favourites, though on Mondays the restaurant adopts a different facet – if you decide to have dinner at Reethi Restaurant on a Monday, in place of Asian and Mediterranean, you will find Italian dishes.


Symphony Lagoon

One of the Maldives hotel restaurants of the most trusted and oldest brands in the country, Symphony Lagoon is rather suitable for family dinners. The guests have two options; they can either dine in the alfresco dinning setting or in the regular restaurant. The romantic themed garden area is aimed at couples who’d love to have candlelit dinners.


Adaaran Select Hudhuranfushi

With accompanying views of the ocean, the dining experience at Adaaran Select Hudhuranfushi is an unparalleled one. You can welcome your day by guzzling down ethnic and international dishes. Guests are provided with a list of seafood dishes to choose from; they can also get their meal prepared to their liking.



The complete opposite of your undersea dining experience, Muraka is found at the end of a jetty sitting on top of the sea. With an open window providing stunning views into the deep sea, Muraka boasts an enchanting setting. You can indulge yourself with local seafood dishes, but if you crave a bit of extra spoiling, you can opt for the Whole Fish Delight.


Sala Thai

If you are a fan of eating freshly caught seafood, you’d like nothing better than your dining experience at Sala Thai. The chefs at Sala Thai go to extra trouble to make sure that dishes are healthy and fresh. Among Sala Thai specials are shrimp marinated in a spicy sauce and the traditional Panang curry.


Seagull Café House

One of the best things you can do while on tour in another country is people watching, and Seagull Café House offers you just that. With a mix of eastern and western dishes for the lunch menu, the restaurant offers its visitors thirty types of ice creams as well as a refreshing juice menu.
