This restaurant is nearer to jetty and cellular jail. Food quality is good. But you can enjoy a range of evening snacks opposite to this restaurant.

Lighthouse is a decent one; sea food served here is good; you can select your own fish/lobster. It has a small roof top bar, which is a perfect place for a lovely evening.

While my trip to Port Blair was a short one, a friend suggested lunch at New Lighthouse Restaurant, and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. You can choose the fish, crab, lobster or prawns you'd like to eat, and pay by weight. Once selected, the staff cook the dish according to your specifications & choices. Located right by the jetty, you... More

Though open air n spacious, situated just next to jetty, new lighthouse restaurant is just like a canteen with average food. Service is good. Price moderate. Prefer seafood to chicken

The prawns fry was salty, surmai was stale and the curry was a disaster but the biggest tragedy is the serving staff - who look like disgruntled prisoners of war. We have no idea why this place gets such generous reviews - it's not worth even one view.

We selected the Surmai fish slab and the crabs and the attendant discussed how spicy we wanted it to be. The resultant dishes were WOW! I have never had such fabulous crab anywhere in the world, believe me! The fish was great too.

The place looks nice with a rooftop but the food was not so great in here. You have a lot of things to choose from seafood on the display. The preparation is not a great one though.

It looked like a good restaurant, built on 2 levels. There was a small display of seafood too. Even tough it did not look very appetizing. The service was slow, the waiters did not think twice before wiping the plates with their hands in plain view of the diners. Some waiters even had their mouths full, and behaved as if... More
