Mixed bag of good and average - but the view is nice and the staff even nicer!

The stairs going up are always dirty, hallways scattered with litter - so the first impression isn't good. But the staff are really nice and helpful, the coffees are some of the best on Male, and the breakfast buffet has a big array of local foods. Menu is also a la carte - highly recommend the... read more

The other reviews sum this place up quite nicely. Grubby stairs and access to restaurant and disgusting, filthy, broken toilets. The view across the harbour is good as is the cooling breeze. Service was mediocre as was the food. I paid in dollars and the male waiter told the young female operating the till to short change me. I objected... More

The location of this restaurant is terrific. Lovely to sit and look at the water, the activity and the sunset. The food was ok - nothing out of the ordinary. The prices were decent and the service was good despite being quite busy.

The service was poor; our waiter asked us what we wanted 3 times within five minutes of us sitting down! As soon as I finished, he snatched my plate away whilst my fiancé was finishing his meal and then asked if i wanted the bill! The whole thing seemed amateur and lacking in basic manners. It was a bit like... More

We visited this place as we had a spare day in Male and heard it was a good place to eat. The service was good probably a little slow with the meals. The food was good without being special. The price was reasonable and i woud say good value for money.

The locations great and despite the food not being great, it was just OK the night we went. The people we were with says that the food is really usually better. The service was very good and friendly. we sat inside and not on the balcony area, which had good views.

We spent the afternoon in Male as our flight back to LHR was only at 11pm. Decided to have a nice dinner and picked the Sea House in Male. We had read good reviews on Tripadvisor and also that it was reasonably priced. Given that we had just spent a small fortune in the Maldives I wanted to eat some... More
