The best Indian coffee and chai!

Walking along Corbyn's beach one encounters bhelpuri walas. The only place there for a quick bite is "Waves", a somewhat old-timer. Guests keep coming and usually look to get seating under one of the few pavilions outside. Service and food are average but enjoyable.

Half the things were not available, not even coffee! Had to leave without eating anything, since whatever we asked for on the menu was not available.

The restaurant is located on the famous Corbyn's Cove Beach which is the only beach in Port Blair. The food choices are not very elaborate. The taste of food is average and ambience is pedestrian but it is clean. The staff is most reluctant to serve and take orders and will always try to dissuade by mentioning that order will... More

outside the Sarovar resort, this is a place you must go for a stroll , for having food and sitting on the beach.

A disappointing trip to this restaurant and bar on the beach. Great location but warm beer and poor service from uninspiring staff (lots of people, no service). I cut my losses and didn't stay to order food - it was too difficult!

Decent bar cum restaurant. The restaurant is not an ac one, however the bar is. Beautiful view if Corbyn's Cove beach from the 1st floor bar. Decent food with budget pricing. Bar is not well stocked though, mayb coz when we went it was off season.

Guess the restaurant caters only to customers in the bar...all the starters seem to be accompaniments for beer, service is slow, food average and ambience wasted in such a wonderful location...many areas for improvement.

Right by the beach, where you can hear the gentle waves lapping on the shore, is a restaurant where nobody cares about customers and the food is barely average. The first night we went there, the restaurant was empty and the outside seating was quite nice. We ordered a few beers and a yummy plate of masala peanuts (the only... More

Stayed at Peerless, visited the waves... average tasting food, good prices, much cheaper than the Peerless, on the beach, good views and a great sitout in the evening. Also has a bar and its a pleasure to sip chilled beer in the boiling heat outside ! All in all, good value...People staying in Peerless would save a lot eating here... More

We went there for dinner on our first night in Blair. There was only beer and Breezer available though they gave us an extensive drinks menu. The food was hit and miss with some excellent fare (peanut masala, vegetarian chinese)
