Underwater Restaurant in the Maldives - Just Fly Business

Dining in the Maldives is akin to dining in Paradise, with the tropical islands that make up the nation boasting pristine beaches, extensive reefs and clear blue lagoons as a backdrop.

Maldivian food benefits from the island nations’ location and as such makes the most of its teeming local fish species as the staple ingredient in a variety of eclectic dishes that are sure to have something for every taste. The area’s dishes are literally a melting pot of cuisines from all over the region including countries such as India and Malaysia and this is part of what makes the food here so exciting.
