Description: Full Moon Café is an independent, owner-run café that started life as a simple shack serving fresh food and drinks, made with love. Since it was started by Adil in 2006, the Full Moon family has grown by a few members... and shifted beachside! Now jointly run by Adil, Niamh and our head chef Narendra, our philosophy at Full Moon Café remains the same as ever - to serve excellent, fresh food (and great coffee!) that we can be proud of, in a space where you can feel as at home as we do. So come and join us by the sea..

'A haven' as Naimh (pronounced as a 'Neev') - the owner of this place refers to it, Full Moon Cafe is a great retreat for the ones who seek some quiet and peace. Located within the premises of Dive India (which seems to be a center for sea adventures like Scuba diving and such), FMC is a restaurant with character of its own. The wood, cane and cloth interiors, the subtle romantic tunes that permeate the air, the gentle sea breeze, a book shelf that you can borrow books from in exchange of books that you have read and a part Indian and part western menu lend a holiday mood to this place.
My wife and I came here for a dinner on our anniversary trip to Andamans and fell in love with this place almost in an instance. So much so that we were compelled to come back here the next morning and spend a few hours here lounging about digging into some sumptuous breakfast and catching up on our reading. There are fewer pleasures in life that can compare to having an book in your hand, sips of chilled lemonade, the sound of the sea dabbing away at the shore in gentle flirtation and romantic music filling up the atmosphere. FMC surely offers you this pleasure and you cannot be anything but thankful for this treat to your senses.
The menu is full of dishes inspired by both the Indian and the western cuisine. The food is tasty and more than adequate to make FMC a compelling attraction on the Havelock islands (the ambiance not withstanding). The menu does not have a spread of desserts, rather offering a dingle desert for the day. The dessert that we were treated to during our dinner was a orange and choco-chip cake and I do not remember having tasted a more flavorsome and moist cake in a long long time. The Orange and the chocolate both shined through every bite and delighted us.
In my opinion,the Full Moon Cafe is a must visit for everyone who plans to visit the Havelock Islands.

Thanks to all the great reviews of this place, we decided to have dinner here on the last evening of our trip and did we regret not coming here earlier!
It's a wonderful place to just hang out with decent food and an amazing ambience.

Excellent food at a reasonable price. Very relaxed restaurant. At times you may have to wait for a table as this place is very popular.

We ate here nearly every meal while we were on Havelock Is. There is so much to choose from on the menu and the ingredients are fresh and ethically sourced where possible. Every meal was excellent - there was not one disappointment. The atmosphere is relaxed and ambient. Do yourself a favour and make sure you eat here at least once!
