We walked quite a lot to reach here but we were surprised to see the serving size was very small and the prices very high. The ice cream scoop size was half the standard scoop. Service is average. The place itself is nice and is on the seafront but it is overrated and over priced.

The restsurant was too close to the hotel I was staying in. It is clean, staff are very nice and always smiling. Food is very good and delicious and they have a wide range to chose from. Sweets as well are very yummiiii. I really enjoyed the experience there and I will definitely go again.

Shell Bean serves the best sandwiches one can get in Male'. There used to be only 1 outlet but I think I saw the 3rd one coming up at the artificial beach area. A must try is a glass of Miracle Juice. Apple, Carrot and Beetroot with a tint of ginger.

This has always been my go to place whenever I'm in doubt about what to eat in Male. Good service, good people, good food. Nice place to sit and relax and watch Male goes by. Food ranges from breakfast, to great sandwiches to good coffees...

Visited with some friends for an afternoon tea. SB ameeneemagu was busy at that time. Food was tasty but service was slow, no smile definitely need improvement on customer service.
