generally at the mercy of your hotel's kitchen - you eat
what they serve. Fortunately, the food is usually decent
and will include fresh seafood (especially tuna), tropical
fruit (especially coconuts), vegetables and some Indian
and Sri Lankan dishes. In addition, most hotels will prepare
any fish you catch. Now that more Europeans are visiting
the islands, some properties are adding a bit of Continental
flavor to their menus. Cafes and teahouses (there are
many in Male') discourage local female customers, but
they will serve foreign women.
A 10% service charge is usually added to the bill at
tourist restaurants and resorts. You may also want to
tip the staff, particulary the dive crew, at some resorts.
