It’s uncommon for visitors to dine anywhere other than the resort at which they are staying. Island-hopping in the Maldives isn’t a viable option. Most resorts have a number of different restaurants ranging from casual beachside to specialty restaurants (such as Mongolian or seafood) or fine dining. You’ll find that once in your little bit of paradise you really won’t want to leave it. However, if your resort is within reach of the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island by speedboat, and you have dollars to spare, then a meal at Ithaa, their underwater restaurant, is a memorable (and very pricey—US$400 minimum) option. If you choose to stay overnight in Malé (primarily a choice for more adventurous travelers) then stick with our recommended restaurants or seek highly recommended ones from reliable sources.
