Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had an unexpected experience at Kagee restaurant in VARU. Starting with a heartfelt welcome to the informative historical and cultural video, we knew we were in for a unique dining experience. The Maldivian cuisine we were served was incredible. The dishes were beautifully prepared...and presented. Agy, our server, made the experience even more special by providing friendly and knowledgeable service. We learned interesting information about the food we were having, which added to the overall experience. We highly recommend Kagee restaurant to anyone staying in VARU. It's a must-visit spot for anyone looking for an exceptional dining experience. Please convey our thanks to Agy for making our evening so pleasant.More

We dined at Kaage during our stay at the wonderful VARU by Atmosphere in the Maldives. What can I say? The whole experience at the restaurant was fantastic. We started with a welcome drink, were kitted out with some Maldivian traditional dress, and watched a...short educational video on the history of the Maldives and the evolution of the cuisine. This set us up for an amazing meal, full of new unique flavours, accompanied by some signature cocktails and well recommended wines. We were served by Aagy, who looked after us so well and explained the ingredients and flavours in the excellent food we tried. I highly highly recommend visiting Kaage.More

This was more than just dinner, as we were welcomed with a drink, asked to wear a sarong, watched a short video on the history of the the Maldives, before we were taken to our table. Our hostess 'Aggy' was very helpful and was able...to walk us through the menu without us needing to see it. All three courses were tasty food, washed down with french white wine. Glad I visited this venue and would recommend it over the other places to eat on Varu Island.More
