“Easily the best place to eat in Male!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

Male is generally speaking a disappointment. Not a lot to see, not a lot to do, service in most places is slow at best but this place is friendly, professional, efficient service with a smile and the food is good. It's the only place I'd recommend!

“The best coconut ice cream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

A good place to meet friends, have a meal or a snack or just sit and wait for your ferry. The staff are helpful and friendly and I usually call in whenever I'm in Male for the fresh fruit salad with coconut ice cream - yummy!

“Best every ice-cream!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

We went to the Seagull shortly after we arrived on Male. We were craving steak and found it here. While it wasn't the best I've ever had the overall presentation and taste was fine. The best part of the meal was the ice-cream which was served in a generous portion with lots of possibilities to dress it up with fruit and whip cream. A pleasant place to enjoy a meal. I'd go back a second time.

“Great lunch in "downtown" malé”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014

We went there last saturday for lunch and had an overall great experience.
The waiter seated us rapidly upstairs (no a/c, but fans which was OK) with a nice view of the High Street and the below garden.
We had different fresh fruit juices that were very good. The meal was excellent, though perhaps a bit spicy for a Western taste. They pride themselves of the best ice cream in Malé, which could very well be true. And they also have real coffee ;-)
We paid about 20USD per person and I would not hesitate to go back for another meal or dessert.
They are open 8am-midnight, except friday : 4pm-midnight.

“Very nice food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

We spent some time in Male and having eaten already in quite a lot of restaurants, we ended up trying Seagull Cafe House.

The interior is very nice and inviting. There is ice cream and pastries just at the entrance and it looks really yummy.

Sitting upstairs is really comfortable and the service was nice and quick.

The food was nice, we had calamari in pepper and chili and a cuttle fish salad.....there was no difference between calamari and cuttle fish, even so there actually is a difference.... It was not really a salad, but just fried with some really nice sauce.

The ice cream was OK, nothing to rave about, especially knowing that there is Moevenpick ice cream available in quite a few shops and restaurants, but overall it was very nice
