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 al fresco area is the biggest draw to come twice during our stay. Coffee is definitely better than many others, cake is average. Ice nutella coffee is my favourite 😎 We enjoyed the Maldivian breakfast very much, except for the mosquitoes

There was no better place for coffee during our stay. We also had dinner there once. It was tasty and well presented, although the wait was quite long.

Visiting Rasdhoo during Ramadan is tricky timing because most of the restaurants and coffee shops are closed during the day. And as an American who loves good coffee (not instant coffee), I was struggling to manage my desire for good coffee. Alimente opened at 7pm...and we stumbled upon it on our walk back to our hotel after dinner at a nearby restaurant The iced Pistachio Coffee gives a fancy starbucks coffee a run for its money. The Ambience is nice with outdoor seating and a rooftop outdoor option as well. As some reviewers have noted it is often smokey due to the large groups of men who meet there for coffee and cigarettes -but this just adds character to the establishment. We stopped for dinner one evening and one of the large tables of men noted our group of 3 - and compressed their table so that we could sit at a table and they even moved the chairs for us. The Menu was primarily indian dishes. I ordered the meat and Mushroom meal and it was flavorful. The meat was a bit on the fatty side for my preference. My friends ordered the Noodle - prepared in different styles. I ordered a Vanilla Mocha to accompany my meal and it was silky and chocolaty delicious!. While the smokers can be distracting to non smokers - the outdoor areas make the smoke manageable. Service is pleasant and attentive. I liked the Pistachio Iced coffee so much - I ordered (2) to take away so that I could enjoy them the following morning.More

I don’t know who is writing all these ecstatic reviews, but our experience was disastrous. When we came around 7 pm, first floor was occupied with smoking and drinking water locals, who gave us unfriendly looks and young waiter, which was quite obtuse, tell us...that second floor is closed (yet). About 20 minutes after we ordered papaya salad he came to say there’s no such salad - I asked what exactly is missing and proposed to substitute papaya with pineapple. After another 10 minutes he brought watermelon just, which was more like water with some drops of watermelon juice. After another 30 minutes waiting (while 5 staff members were having a good time chatting at the bar paying no attention to the guests - by that time all locals gone for to pray and we were the only guests) he brought us cold pasta and hardly eatable salad. I asked to try their famous cheesecake glorified in some reviews, and waiter tells us there’s no cheesecake and no deserts at all, and smiled broadly for the first time. After some consultation with the bartender he offer granola and yogurt, which I agreed, and finally he bring me something rather strange generously covered in cream. The only thing I can’t complain about was espresso - it was ok. Otherwise quite miserable experience. Stay away.More

During our stay we often went to the Alimante for either a coffee between the dives or for dinner. The cappuccino is the best in town and we always spend a great time there.

My wife and I tried several restaurants on the island. And this is the best. Prices are lower, prepare faster, the only place on the island with regular coffee (in other bars and restaurants coffee from capsules). I recommend trying local food - "Kothu Roshi...with Tuna", and their cheesecake is wonderful.More

We've been to this restaurant twice and we've never been disappointed. The food is absolutely delicious. They offer a traditional Maldivian cuisine and also some general Asian cuisine. The cocktails are very well made and refreshing. The members of staff are very pleasant and are...interested about your feedback. The prices are also affordable and aren't that high. Our only complaint is about the waiting time for the food although this appears to be a common thing for local restaurants. Considering all of this we plan to eat there againMore

During our stay on Rasdhoo we have come here at least once a day. The coffee is the best we have found on the island, the staff is very friendly, drinks and food are great and the prices are very good. It is a great...place to stop by for a coffee or a drink and just hang out as well as having breakfast, lunch or dinner. Or if you need a filling, tasty meal this is the place to go!More

The staff and chef Dilanka really went out of their way to accommodate me in planning a surprise dinner. They took care of the decorations to food. Everyone enjoyed Chef Dilankas preparations, he was very accommodating towards my vegetarian gluten free options. apart from the...dinner we spent almost every afternoon at the cafe after our dives. The coffees are amazing and the staff once again polite and always helpful. The view is like none other ! I found the prices pretty affordable.

We ate one meal, had numerous drinks and stopped by Alimente almost every day during our 10 day stay on Rasdhoo. The food was really delicious, the drinks pretty tasty and we enjoyed sitting and watching the ocean. Good prices as well.
