Great Dining Experiences from Maldives - the Male flavour

If you need a good seafood meal, reach Maldives overnight. Unrealistic it may sound, but not so when it comes to taste. Maldives has the genuine seafood taste, as it is the island of the fishermen.


Ithaa Undersea Restaurant

Five metres below sea level! Just imagine having dinner that below! Ithaa, in Maldivian tongue, means 'mother of pearl'. And you will be treated to a first class six-course set dinner that includes Malossol imperial caviar with sour cream potato blinis and yellowtail kingfish with a saffron champagne risotto and beurre blanc foam. And for dessert, you will have vanilla chocolate vantage with mango sorbet. Even if you reach there mid-morning, you can go for a cocktail flanked by a four-course lunch. You can also opt for a meal cooked in privacy. The most welcoming thing about this place is that it certainly offers you up-scale dinner. Such a dinner surrounded by beautiful coral orchards could be a lifetime opportunity in your whole lifetime.


Kurumba Maldives

Of all the Maldives Resorts, Kurumba happens to be the first to be opened in the country. From the distance it looks like a magnificent island. On the other hand, it is a first class hotel. If you are a professional, looking for a proper place to have your meeting, then Kurumba Maldives could be the ideal choice. Swimming pools, restaurants and bars add extra value to this up-scale resort.



The restaurant has an idyllic look with its rustic atmosphere. They offer you international menus as well fused with traditional seafood. Muraka's specialty includes pink peppercorn crusted Maldivian tuna loin with fried bok choi and crispy potato wanton. Some of their menus include local delicacies as well. Enjoy your dinner at the open-floor section like most travellers, for it offers you an uninterrupted view of the ocean.


Shell Beans

With a history of over 10 years, Shell Beans makes you relaxed with its atmosphere. You will notice a large number of locals, expatriates as well as plain sightseers. This restaurant has a fusion between modernity and ancient appearance. The interior looks somewhat ancient, though you have modern facilities such as free wi fi. The menu includes a vast range such as tandoori chicken and teriyaki beef. The restaurant's expertise, however, is croissantwiches, a combination of croissants and sandwiches.


Seagull Cafe House

At this cafe, you can go for both Maldivian and Indian cuisine. And the cafe also offers you the finest fruits such as mango, pineapple and coconut. With its regular customer base, Seagull Cafe House has established itself as a charming restaurant. The courtyard is quite calm and you will feel soft as you walk barefoot on the sandy floors while feeling the wind blowing across the trees. The trees are the natural shelter for your dinner.

If you happen to be here on a Friday, you can see how the busy locals moving to Grand Friday well settled in your own privacy.
