The ice cream was just super. You will not be disappointed. On the downside, the service is a bit slow, but always friendly!

“Nice amostphere”
Reviewed 21 May 2013

It is a treehouse restaurant. We took the upstairs seat. We had a wonderful breakfast there, about US$20 for two of us. Quite delicious and yummy!

“Refresh yourself. Good midday or dinner stop. Must order ice cream.”
Reviewed 16 May 2013 via mobile

You probably won't be blown away by the food (here or at any other restaurant in Male, to be frank), but it is at least good. The flavored teas are delicious and definitely enjoy fresh fruit juice. The orange I had to order twice. The upper level dining area has a nice breeze and view of the street and the nearby mosque. Take a nice rest here and refresh yourself at this little haven. The REAL draw here is the ice cream. It was outstanding. It was rich, very creamy, not too sweet with natural tasting flavors. I ordered a 2 scoop dish with hazelnut and pistachio. Save one spoonful of the hazelnut to put into your coffee. I stopped in again the next day for a second dose. The staff was pretty attentive and very friendly. Overall: definitely recommend as rest, lunch or dinner oasis. I did not have the opportunity to try breakfast there.

“Mashuni Roshi, Mango Gelato & Many Mozzies”
Reviewed 2 May 2013

One of Male's most popular eateries, this inviting two-storey café (open until midnight daily) serves the best, smoothest ice cream in town, but less impressive is the food, especially its bland rice and noodle dishes. Homesick Americans will rejoice when they discover club sandwich and honey mustard chicken. But we opt for mashuni roshi, a typical breakfast perfect for anyone inclined to visit teashops and the only Maldivian dish on the menu.

Seagull's highlight as mentioned above is homemade Italian ice cream. Of its 20+ flavours, tropical delights like pineapple and mango are our favourites. Anyone not in the mood for gelato should consider its equally refreshing smoothies but rather not its stale pastries. Like many cafés in Male, delicate desserts served warm like chocolate fondant and crème brûlée aren't available.

Perhaps what we like most about Seagull is its efficient service. Everything much to our amazement arrives fast; we never wait for longer than 10 minutes to get served. What we like least is the lack of air-conditioned space so wear long trousers in the evening as this open-air restaurant attracts both men and mosquitoes.
