Breakwater: Stylish with a hint of elegance

01 February 2017

My visit to the Breakwater Restaurant, one of the most beautifully situated restaurants in the Maldives graced me with a memorable understanding of how Maldivian restaurants work and what they try to implement. Breakwater Restaurant is one of the best situated restaurants in the Maldives. With stunning views of the beach and ocean right beside the restaurant, it is worth visiting just for its spectacular views. A modest atmosphere surrounded the restaurant with a beautiful night sky view and the aroma of freshly cooked dishes spread across the warm seating area lined with tables gazing out into the ocean.

A common saying is that restaurants cleanliness can always be judged by its restrooms. Breakwater was acceptable for me that night with its averagely clean lavatories. 

Wanting to sample the standards of the restaurant, I ordered a one of mocktail from the menus, which took less than five minutes to reach me. Waiters were polite and very respectful in their behavior, and were autious as well as keen to keep my satisfied. The drinks were refreshing and energizing which actually got me excited for the rest the night to come. 

As the restaurant boasts a multitude of dishes from various cuisines, I wanted to experience the expertise of the restaurant and its chefs in the art of gastronomy. I selected the lamb chops from the sumptuous menu. When it came, I was not disappointed by the mouthwatering aroma that hit my nostrils. The restaurant provided good on its promise of providing a range of tasty dishes from various cuisines. The
lamb chops were exquisite and came with a side of potato and vegetables which complemented each other well. The boiled vegetables paired along with the gravy filled lamb chops and potato was very tasty, which I took as a testament to the chef’s skills and the standard of the Restaurant itself.

Everything at the restaurant are well priced and not expensive than any other restaurant in town. Specialty dishes such as sea food might cost a little bit more, but other dishes were priced along the same scale as other restaurants in the city, with some dishes costing less than they normally would at other restaurants.
