Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The buffet was incredible! A wide variety, western and eastern food, health options, and incredible desserts. If you can stay on Sunday, Sunday night is Arabian night and the Middle Eastern food is delicious.

we ate here whilst on the island most nights as this was the restaurant allocated to our room. Only rooms allocated to it can eat here to ensure there is always enough tables and that it remains as an adult only as the other restaurant...is families etc. there was always plenty of choice including for vegetarians and the cooking stations were always interesting. only suggestion for improvement is to take away the tendency to rely heavily on curry for vegetarians and provide an alternative as well.More

The food is just incredible and there is so much variety. They even cater to those with allergies, showing what is in food and even taking you around to show you what you can and can't eat. Everyone is so friendly from the waiters, to...the chefs and the hosts.More

Restaurant on the beach with a nice and cosy ambience. This is a place on the north side of meeru resort, quite convenient for people staying in Waterville on north side.

They have a fabulous vegan menu along with great vegetarian options. Indians will find it a home away from home. They have about 8-10 varieties of breads which alternate on days and there isn't much to complain on that front. IT has both an Indoor...and an Outdoor seating for a comfortable and a scenic lunch/dinner.More

This restaurant is on the south tip of the island and has a big capacity to handle crowd. It has the same menus as present in other restaurant. They have big celebrations for events like new year and Christmas.

We had breakfast, lunch and dinner here for 3 days. Food was very good and we had large number of options. Non-veterinarians who likes to taste different kind of dishes from across the world would love this place. Vegetarians specially from India may find limited...options. You will have freshly prepared and served dishes.More

Excellent choice. Always a chef on hand for any queries. Food was amazing, just would of like more hot desserts, only 1 choice, when it was available, which was not every evening, only 4 out of 14. A special mention to our waiter Niyaz. Never...had to ask for anything, after our first day, he just knew, how he remembered, is unbelievableMore
