Baros Maldives Celebrates 15th Anniversary of The Lighthouse Restaurant

Baros Maldives celebrates the 15th anniversary of the resort’s most memorable dining experience, The Lighthouse Restaurant. The iconic, pinnacle-roofed restaurant on the shore of the legendary Maldivian luxury island resort of Baros is visible from miles away and its opening in December 2005 elevated dining in the Maldives to an unrivaled level. Situated under the stars and over the stunning lagoon, this iconic restaurant offers unforgettable epicurean dining at the Indian Ocean’s most romantic resort.

With its eclectic selection of succulent local seafood, prime imported meat, and modern classics infused with exotic flavor presented and served with style, the Lighthouse Restaurant quickly won fame as an excellent dining destination in a breath-taking setting above the Baros lagoon.

For guests of Baros, dining in The Lighthouse at least once and enjoying magical sunset moments from the gallery of the Lighthouse Lounge has become an essential part of their stay.

To celebrate the 15th anniversary, the Lighthouse Chef, Nathif, has chosen the all-time guest favorites to create a special Anniversary Degustation Menu. Many dishes that are featured have been on the menu since the very beginning of The Lighthouse, satisfying returning guests who always request them.

The menu will include all-time favorites, such as the Lighthouse Cognac Flambéed Lobster Bisque prepared table-side from the Guéridon, which has become a popular dish among guests for over a decade. Other popular highlights that are included are Grilled Yellow Fin Tuna Steak with Pan Fried Duck Foie Gras and Seared Medallions of 300-Day Grain-Fed Black Angus Beef Fillet.

The Lighthouse Menu has evolved over the years as Chef Nathif and his brigade of skilled chefs know and understand what guests seek for the perfect evening of gourmet highlights accompanied by great wine.

The Lighthouse team has been recognized and awarded, nationally and internationally. Chef Nathif, who has worked at Baros for 16 years, has collected several prestigious awards over the years for culinary excellence.

The six-course 15th Anniversary Degustation Menu is a perfect way to discover the fine food served at Baros and is available only at The Lighthouse Restaurant for a limited period. The Lighthouse sommelier will assist guests with individualized wine pairing.

Baros is a boutique, private island of 75 overwater and beachside garden villas and white sand beaches set in a turquoise lagoon, just 25 minutes by speedboat from the Maldives International Airport.
