Try the Srilankan dinners here. If you are non-smoker, stay away from here as the crowd appears to be here for the hookah.

Located inside, with a nice garden area. Mainly a shisha place at night. Good place to experience some local cuisine if you are interested.

The decor at this restaurant stays true to traditional Maldivian colors. The staff are friendly and the food is decent but the majority of the patronage is for their hookahs.

We were really surprised how great the Thai food at Dhivehi Malaafaiy was (although Anantara has a lot of properties there) and the ambiance of the crashing waves below and the gentle breeze suggested a good book after lunch would be ideal

Well, quite a nice place with reasonable prices and good shisha. A bit nosy, because some of customers not always behaving quiet (like groups of young local gentlemen), but still Ok. Food is Ok, clearness is better then expected. Recommend to visit!

but if you don't you'll get plenty of mild dishes for you (maldivian and international style) in a peaceful relaxing ambient. The maldivian cucumber salad that you think refreshing has green chili tiny piceces, that taste like TNT. But everybody enjoyed the meals
