“The best meals we have ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2012 via mobile

This year is our second visit to the Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru and without doubt this restaurant is one of the contributing factors to our return as this restaurant has provided us with the best meals we have ever had! The service, the presentation, the quality of the ingredients used and of course the preparation are all first class; it has to be said that the location and views assist too.
