Laying out an al fresco dining experience by the swimming pool, Open - The Grill has introduced Maldives to the flavour-packed flamboyance of South American cuisine. Signature dishes from Peru, Mexico, Brazil and Argentina are paired with the region’s world-class bubbly, in a menu that’s a smash hit with bon vivants. Dine on familiar classics - sizzling fajitas and shrimp-stuffed quesadilla – while discovering melt-in-the-mouth bobó de camarão (Brazilian shrimp chowder) and a bowl of hearty parihuela (Peru’s aji-spiked answer to the French bouillabaisse). A wood-fired oven by the pool sends out some of the island’s best pizzas, even as pisco sour and caipirinha glasses circulate around the tables, keeping the mood as vibrant as the food.
