Quiet little cafe for a relaxing afternoon.

Situated just opposite the ferry jetty, on the 1st floor . Can enjoy a relaxing afternoon with iced coffee, gentle sea breeze, and wifi. Food & beverage , portion and quality are ok but the serving speed is a bit slow.

This restaurant is located very near to MTCC ferry terminal for Hulhumale. On our return from Hulhumale we came across this restaurant and went in for diner. The place around the restaurant is very crowded with lot of hustle bustle. We tried thai food which was just ok and the food looked a bit bland. We did see a lot... More

Chose this for the bustle around the terminal and the upstairs balcony looked nice. The young waiter was so attentive, giving advice on seafood and generally keeping an eye on the table. Lots of locals and, yes, although the food isn't adventurous, it's incredible value for lovely simple grilled fresh king prawns, which my daughter and I both had. I... More

Maybe it's changed since I was there last, but I've rarely seen such slow service. Perhaps the slowness was due to the fact that all three courses were served at once. Why on earth would they do that?? Like a lot of places in Male' they try to do too much, and the menu is far too large. If they... More
