Great food!

This is a great restaurant with a marvelous view over the sea and other small islands around Male. The food was good, and the drinks better. Tried the local beer, very good! The restaurant is located on the top of the ferry terminal.

Sea House have very very nice food and surprisingly it is very affordable though it looks like expensive but it is not. Food and service is also worth trying.

The restaurant is located at the second floor of the boat station and provides a breathless view of the sea. Food was average. Love their Maldivian mocktail. I guess people come here more for the view than the food served.

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

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 omelet with brown toast... 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.
