101. Baraabaru at Four Seasons Maldives at Kuda Huraa (North Malé Atoll, Maldives)

A torch-lit path leads diners to Baraabaru from the hotel’s catamaran, which whisks visitors between the three Four Seasons properties in the atoll chain. Overlooking the crystal clear Indian Ocean, the airy restaurant is situated beneath timber columns and features an open kitchen with a tandoori bar. Chefs here prepare classic Indian dishes with an emphasis on local seafood, like whole tandoori lobster marinated in mustard and honey. Biryanis are served in clay pots, and there is a special Sunday night Ghar Ka Khana, a buffet of curries, biryanis, chutneys, and kebabs.
