This place serves drinks. But sadly that area is open and hence not air conditioned. So you basically drink in the blaring sun. The preparations are fresh. Sadly the place had flies. And the waiter didnt do anything about it. The preparations were delicious. I'd recommmend. But reprimand the staff if you see flies as i did.

the food was pretty decent but the only problem was that the guy running the place was a one-man show. The waiter was also the bartender and the chef which is why it took us 30 mins to get each dish. Has potential to be better...

Pathetic service, we had to wait 20 minutes after each dish for the next one to arrive. They have an upstairs where you can drink but its dirty. The staff is least bothered with serving you and you will hear them say " Ask someone else". However, the food was great, I cant find any fault in the food we... More

The food is fresh and well cooked. Dinner sitting on top is a great experience and the place is always full - a good indicator for a restaurant.

Good food and a nice drinking area. The servers also help you learn to open beer bottles with a use of spoon only. Very nice people. The only problem is a very small area on top where the bar is situated.

The Andamans is not the place for gastronomic delights, and Port Blair is a screaming example of that. You can't blame the staff of the restaurants, they simply do not have exposure to what good food or varied recipes are. The owners of these places need to move with the times and train their people better. New Lighthouse has a... More

Terrible! That single word would summarise it all! Filthy interiors, horrible food, sloppy service and very unhygienic. We went there as our driver recommended this place to us. Oh my God! We curse the driver till this day!

Food is good, servise is ok but this place is little overpriced. Lemon rice here is the best we have tried in India. Try the prawns carry in wine sauce too. So good place to have a dinner, don't miss.

I like the see food variety... you could pick the fish and they would cook it for you the way you want it.
