Quality food served here affordable. Compare to most restaurants in the island one of the finest cafe to hang out with friends. They serve freshly made sandwiches and other dishes as well.

Ok so the food is good, both Maldivian and Western dishes are good. It's pretty close to the jetty's so it is a very good place to be a meeting point. Although it is very clean, the ambiance is a little sterile though, walls are empty and there is nothing to make you feel really cozy...

Great Atmosphere, Shell Beans is a hidden gem. there is the main cafe which located on the sea front but I have only recently discovered the restaurant upstairs. I had a delicious serving of fish and chips followed by the blueberry cheese cake! Amazing!!!!!!
