After taking a walk around the beautiful and lively Male city center looking for a place to dine, we ended up at the cloud restaurant. As soon as we entered the building we were impressed by their welcoming personell and their hygienic approach to keep a safe environment. We went up to the tenth floor only to be impressed once more by the stunning view of Male city, the ocean and even the airport. On top of that, the place had really modern and cozy furnishing. Even though the restaurant wasn’t the largest in the world, they had managed to create a spacious and fresh feel with a really interesting detail to the furniture. As we could expect by the astonishing look of the restaurant, the food was great as well. The food was delicious, looked delicious and price wise was definitely worth it. It is not the cheapest of restaurants but is also far from being “expensive” especially considering other few other restaurants being able to provide the same class. Therefore, I want to give huge credit to the chef and the kitchen staff for really putting in that bit of extra effort. Without a doubt, we decided to revisit the restaurant the day after (even though we didn’t live at the hotel) and just as the day before, we were met by an outstanding service. The personell really strived to satisfy us as guests. I would absolutely go as far as to say this is one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to in terms of service. Everything we asked for, they took one step further and that is what I call class. Even the chef took his time to greet us and even he was really service minded which gave the impression that we truly were cared for. To conclude, we really felt that we were in focus and the time at the restaurant was a true pleasure. If you’re visiting Male, I can say wholeheartedly that this restaurant is a must.

Staying at the hotel next door, the Unima Grand, we truly enjoyed dining at The Cloud Restuarant at Samann Grand. We felt very welcome already at entrance with a very humble and supportive personnel. In times of Covid we in specific appreciated the precaution routines. Chairs, door handles etc was cleaned instantly and all staff was proteced accordingly. Restaurant was very calm and relaxing with the most professional personnel we have met in 10 days in Maldives. We enjoyed the indoor seating with a top notch design of international touch with great view on floor 10 but there is a terrace at floor 11 for outdoor dining as well. Just a detail as a sink (carved out of rockj) at the entrance to wash your hands before dining shows the ambition of this facility! Menu offers a great variety of food and you can easily combine the dish you want covering from sallad and cold dishes to mains with a cross over asian touch and additional choices and desserts. We tried dishes as Tuna steak, Singapore noodles, Chicken wrap, Red curry noodles with tuna and a couple of desserts with great pleasure. As we like hot food but not too hot we asked for less hot dishes and the Chef adopted perfectly to our taste. A tip is to try the freschly squeezed Passion Fruit juice that was one of the best juices we have had ever and the Latte the best so far in Maldives. Staff was very professional, seeing the need before we even thought to ask. Restaurant was not fully occupied so may have affected we were served promptly but day before we dropped in fairly late and personnel occupied with preparations of the New Year Gala Dinner and then we got the same service:) Not the cheap alternative but worth every dollar and I would not even consider any other alternative in Male City if you want to enjoy a variety of excellent food in the best environment Male can offer. The hotel and the Cloud restaurant may not present themselves with the big signs but easy to find at the northeast corner of Male City just opposite to the (not yet) opened huge King Salman Mosque along the main road from Male Airport.

I ordered the lobster Thermidor at the cloud restaurant and I was beyond impressed. It was some of the nicest lobster I have eaten and great value for money as the portion size was massive!! It came with a choice of side and a choice of sauce, I chose the lemon butter sauce which complemented the lobster perfectly. The staff here are also lovely and polite ensuring everything is amazing.The view of Malé from the restaurant was also lovely, especially when it was dark and the city was lit up. I’d highly recommend this restaurant for a lovely dining experience as well as quality food.

From the smiling, friendly initial greeting to the attentive & professional service to the truly fabulous food on offer, do yourself a favour whilst in Male & book this lovely restaurant for at least 1 visit! The non-alcoholic drinks worked wonderfully with our exquisite meal & the expectations of the signature Lobster Thermidor were more than fulfilled. It has been many years since last trying this incredible dish but it would be hard to imagine a more beautiful presentation or superior quality virtually anywhere in the 5-star world. Not cheap by any means for locals but more than fair price by Western standards this is clearly the one Male culinary experience that should not be missed. The chef not only came out at the start of our meal (surprisingly large portions) but also once again when we were done to ensure we were happy. What great service & a super memorable experience!

My wife and I visited the Cloud restaurant today and were blown away with the service and the food. We felt well taken care of by the staff and the chef even made a special meal just for us. The view was great, too. We can absolutely recommend it.

We have spent a night in Male in the transfer to another atoll, also if is not so attractive this city, the dinner in this restaurant was delicious! The service very kind and careful. Our fried shrimp and vegetable was so light and perfect as we never eaten, my shrimps were simply grilled but perfect the same the fish. What a pity not to be able to join a glass of wine to these delicious dishes! They don’t have!

Dear carlat592, Thank you for choosing The Cloud Restaurant during your stay in Male! We're delighted to hear that despite the city not being as attractive as other destinations, you still had a wonderful dining experience with us. We're thrilled that you found our dinner delicious and that you enjoyed the light and perfect flavors of our shrimp and vegetable dish. It's wonderful to know that you found our grilled shrimp and fish to be simply perfect. We understand your disappointment about not being able to enjoy a glass of wine with your meal. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused as it is prohibited in all local islands by law since Maldives is 100% Muslim country. Your feedback is valuable to us, and we will certainly look for future improvements in terms of other aspects. Thank you for your kind words about our service. We strive to provide attentive and caring service to all our guests. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future for another delightful dining experience.

The rooftop restaurant has a great view looking out towards the airport and had a lovely breeze on the night we visited. The food is tasty and the service was great (seated fast and ordering was easy). A few items were unavailable but we found enough to pick from between the standard and Indian menus.

We were able to sit on the rooftop with a beautiful view of the water and the Mosque. The service and attentiveness of the staff was exceptional. All of the food was beautifully plated and delicious! I started with a traditional Maldivian dish called Gaurdiya. It was hearty mix of beef and fish in a spicy broth. Next, I had the whole fish. It was served with a very flavorful lemon butter sauce. We finished up a house made tiramisu. The entire meal and experience was 5 star and I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We were staying at the Samann Grand hotel overnight on our way to a resort. We decided to have dinner (and the included buffet breakfast the following morning) for convenience at this hotel restaurant, and were pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent, the prices very reasonable, and the service was great! This was coupled with a spectacular City and water view from the 10th floor. (They also have outdoor rooftop patio seating on the 11th floor during good weather periods with the same menu.) Highly recommended!

I stopped at this restaurant because of its location with a roof top open area where you can look out over the sea and watch the odd seaplane fly past. Good food and service, at a reasonable price. Once it gets dark a tea light is provided - not really enough light for me as I like to see what I am doing / eating, but it was enough and I could have moved inside if I wanted more light.

EXVEPTIONAL value! This restaurant is a must visit if you are in Male. We stayed in Male for one night as we flew in quite late in the evening. We visited this restaurant and everything we tried was delightful. We started with the Tom Yum Soup which was bursting with flavour. We then share the crispy stir fried beef and egg fried rice. My husband said the stir fry beef was the nicest he has ever had! We finished with a yummy chocolate lava cake which was a delicious way to end the meal and not too heavy. Special mention to our very friendly and helpful waiter Chamod. This restaurant is exceptionally good value for the quality of food you get and also has a lovely rooftop area. We will definitely visit again when we’re next in Male.

We had a great experience in this restaurant. The food quality was outstanding and it was more than enough in terms of quantity. Each item we ordered was perfectly cooked and absolutely delicious. The service was so topnotch as the waiter was very observant about when and what we needed. And the last but not the least, we got complementary deserts from the chef. We were lucky to get to know and meet with one of the chefs from our country making us proud of how honorably he is representing our nation in another country.
