If you wish to season your holiday with awe (which we reckon is the most important reason why you added the Maldives to your travel bucket list in the first place!), there is no better way than to revel in a delicious meal right next to what the archipelago is best known for: stunning coral reefs! Fortunately for those of you spending a holiday at Hurawalhi or nearby islands, this one-of-a-kind experience is possible at 5.8 Undersea Restaurant, considered by many as the country’s most chic dining venue.
Lunch menu highlights include tuna tartare with wasabi sorbet and avocado purée, red mullet with lobster bisque foam, poached lobster with truffle caviar and seared Wagyu tenderloin with Wagyu cheek confit; wrapping up the 5-course experience is mango cheesecake with coconut ice-cream and wild berries.
The 7-course dinner is the most popular seating at 5.8 Undersea Restaurant thanks to the chance to admire this architectural wonder and its surrounds at both daylight and after the sun sets. You’ll of course love the dishes as such too; lobster will never be the same again after you’ve had Chef Warren Moore’s smoked lobster and sea urchin mousse with Garland Crest and cognac emulsion, lobster salsa, squid ink brittle, beluga caviar and poached langoustine tail.
Whether you are a foodie, simply want to spice up your Instagram feed (find the resort’s most Instagrammable spots here) or perhaps want to pull off a romantic surprise for your significant other, the chic 5.8 Undersea Restaurant certainly deserves the top spot on your must-do list.
