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.

Perfect staff and really really good food for a small price. It is for sure the best restaurant on Dhigurah island with the best staff. They are really helpful and nice.

We ate at the restaurant almost every day. We tried a lot of different dishes and all of them were delicious. There were also a lot of vegetarian options. The portions were a good size, so we were always full. On average we paid 25$...for two meals and two drinks. The staff were very responsive and kind. We always felt welcomed.More

Lovely setting, above a hotel, looking out over the ocean. There was a really good menu choice and the food was excellent. Prices were reasonable. The only criticism was that the service was really slow. It only opened at 7 so there was a big...influx of people at that time, which seemed to overwhelm staff. Maybe opening earlier would spread customers out a little more and make it more manageable.More

We spent a little over a week at Dhigurah and after discovering Malaveli we came back here for lunch for the rest of our holiday. All the dishes we tried were fresh, carefully prepared and inexpensive. The waiting staff is also very friendly and caring.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Absolutely TOP Maldivian restaurant! Menu is well composed so everybody can find something which is the best for him (even child!). Chef has a unique sense of taste! It was really pleasure to taste his meals!!! I could recommend every meal which I tasted!...The second thing - maybe the most important - is waiter service! That was something incredible! Their smile every day and their taking care of us while serving meals was a lovely experience. I don't think I've ever felt so taken care of in a restaurant. Their manners, the way they served the dishes and their questions about the meals made us not want to leave the restaurant! We highly recommend this absolutely wonderful place - with great food and OUSTANDING service ❤️!More

Delightful dinner at the Malaveli restaurant on the Dhiguveli hotel rooftop. Ate local tuna with a tasty passion fruit sauce ($5) and sizzling beef with rice ($8). All was very good and the beef portion was generous in size. Highly recommended; will eat here again...duing our trip.More

We have been tasting the delicious food of Malaveli Restaurant for 1 week and we are proud to say that this is the best restaurant in Dhigurah island. The restaurant is on the third floor of Dhiguveli Hotel and has an amazing rooftop where you...can dinner under the stars. The staff are the nicest people that takes care of every detail.
