Among the most amazing culinary experiences we have had. Immaculate discreet service with a menu that not surprisingly avoided seafood...specially given our neighbours who were checking us out. As the sunlight disappeared the fish around us changed in size and colour. The most spectacular were naturally the manta ray. The intimate atmosphere was perfect to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It... More

World-famous Ithaa was a restaurant we were not going to miss during our trip to the Maldives. In fact, it should be on everyone's culinary bucketlist! The staff was amazing and remembered us from Sunset Grill the night before. The food was spectacular, the first course of caviar and the main course of reef fish and risotto particularly stood out.... More

Ithaa should definitely be on your bucklist! We went on 2 occasions during our stay in January 2014 for lunch and then for dinner to truly get the full experience. The dinner starts above sea-level in their welcome chamber where you'll be greated with champagne. Then we were escorted into the amazing underwater dining room where we were served a... More

We booked as non residents of the Conrad Hotel whilst we stayed at Moofooshi. It was about 45 minutes by speed boat. When we arrived we were greeted at the quay by a member of staff from Conrad which made us feel very special. The restaurant itself is a magical triip and the experience of being underwater is a once... More

Staying at the Conrad Rangali is already a treat. The Ithaa undersea restaurant is another jewel in the Indian Ocean! Amazing view of the sea, coral, fish along with good food, great service and genuine care for families and children! A must if you come to Rangali!

This is truly a one of a kind experience and well worth the rather expensive price tag. The food is excellent and they are very flexible with replacing any item on the meny.

We enjoyed the six-course dinner meal very much although I wouldn't say it was out of this world. The food was, however, perfectly cooked and presented and different from what you might find elsewhere. There is a fair amount of food but it is spread over three hours so you can pace yourself easily. As with so many other guests... More

I had many queries answered by admin staff promptly and efficiently even before arriving at Conrad Rangali. Everything was perfect starting at the seaplane lounge and scenic flight, the welcome on arrival, early check-in, friendly and helpful staff, choice of restaurants, activities, beach, and overwater accommodation with a fun jetted plunge pool. My husband and I were provided with transport... More

I mean, it's an underwater restaurant. How can you not try it? Worth the experience. Only went for the afternoon cocktail, so can't comment on quality of food.

Dine 5 metres below sea level at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island's unique underwater restaurant. Marvel at 360° views of reef and marine life, sip champagne cocktails and dine in style at this spectacular Maldives restaurant - the world's only aquarium-style restaurant.Probably the most famous restaurant at the resort, Ithaa is the only undersea restaurant of its kind in the world. The dinner menu is equally special with luxurious ingredients such as caviar, lobster, or foie gras making star appearances. The lunch menu is lighter while the wine list offers the ultimate of wines: champagne. This is a once-in –a-lifetime experience to dine underwater watching the fish swimming by. Cocktail hour, lunch and dinner every day, upon reservation. Modern European dishes Seats: 12 Dress Code: Formal Children may dine at lunch at the restaurant's discretion. Advance reservations recommended. Please contact the resort to make a booking up to 14 days prior to arrival
