I came here for lunch, had spaghetti bolognese and virgin mojito. Pasta is one of the best in the island and the virgin mojito is so-so. It has a nice view of the beach.

Service is okay, not outstanding.

The food overall is good. Both at lunch and dinner buffet. The problem here is even the long waiting time to serve us, which for me is terrible.
However you can ask for the wifi password and it makes the wait easier.

We had buffet dinner at this restaurant 3 times out of the 7 evenings we spent in Maafushi and every time the choice of food was good for our family - especially our 6 yo daughter was delighted by the live pasta cooking which was available twice. I have to admit that on 2 occasions we chose another restaurant but not because the food choices weren't good but because our daughter wanted something that was not available then.
We had a very pleasant surprise one morning when the guy from the restaurant approached us in front of our hotel saying that he mistakenly charged us 40 MVR extra the previous night and he returned us the money. I can't imagine what determined him to do this or how he spotted us the next day.
Another thing was that they didn't charge us for our 6 yo daughter the first two times, but the third and last times they charged half a menu for her. Anyway, the food was worth the money every time. Service was a little slow though, sometimes we almost finished eating until we got water.
I would highly recommend this place as the first option for buffet dinner in Maafushi.
