Definitely worth a visit when in Male'! The view of this place is amazing and the drinks and food decent. 4 stars because the service can be amazingly slow, but if you're not in a rush, a must visit!

Beware of their scheme to fleece you with juice and fancy drinks in minute glasses and still charge you as if they were regular drinks. Nice view but waiters are sometimes in their own little universe. Taste of food is okay.
