“great if there are no groups”
Reviewed 9 January 2012

Dinner at Ithaa restaurant was nice. Fabulous food (too much so you really have to pace yourselves) and great service. The restaurant does not allow kids to ensure that it remains calm... however, when we had dinner there, there was a group of 10 people (family reunion) also there and the level of noise was just out of this world (it is a small room and the noise was increased by the glass surrounding). That just killed the romantic atmosphere. So that was very unlucky for us but if you are just surrounded with couples, then it is a wonderful experience!

“Fantastic.”
Reviewed 27 December 2011

Gorgeous location out next to the Spa, wonderful seating over the water and great food. Small dishes but sufficient for an enjoyable, healthy and very tasty dinner. Our favourite restaurant on the resort for quality, setting and afforrdability.

“Once in a life experience”
Reviewed 24 December 2011

Excellent atmosphere but food too sophisticated for my taste (7 courses meal). Dinner is pricy but worth the experience if you are in Maldives.

“Spa Cuisine that is full of flavour”
Reviewed 15 December 2011

I was not expecting to like this restaurant as much as we did. The food was really good, and save for the smaller portions it really didn't seem like this was healthy food that was supposed to be good for you. We ended up eating there three times during our 6 day stay.

The male wait staff were really friendly and nice (though I wasn't so impressed with the waitress who also served us).

Would recommend this even to those who do not usually watch what they eat.

“Unique experience but expensive”
Reviewed 15 December 2011

We went at lunch, and on a warm sunny day, the restaurant (which is small and has about 4 tables) gets a bit hot after a while. The sun streams in through the aquarium and I had to wear my sunglasses because of the glare. It's expensive-- US$195 per head ++ and excluding drinks. My 6 year old got to order a regular kids' meal though. Still, lunch there for 4+1 child came up to more than US$1000. The food was pretty good except for dessert which was very average, but let's be honest here, you are really paying for the experience of dining "under the sea" and the quality of the food does not otherwise justify the price.

Still-- this restaurant is one of the things that makes this resort unique. We choose this resort in part because of this restaurant, so we did not let the cost deter us.
