“never again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2010

Our first visit to the light house was a hurried one.we were greeted by extremely busy waiters and lots of flies along with d breeze. It has no ambience to speak of so the food seemed to be overpriced.
We shrugged the exp as 'one off day'. the second trip was more dissapointing. as a hotelier i understand portion control but the paneer tikka they served was more of an insult. they took ages to serve.the sweetcorn chicken soup was tasteless and sans teh chicken.the egg drop in it was still raw. all you get plenty is flies,flies and more flies.staff was aloof and uninterested.
do i need to say more that this time we left without suffering the maincourse

“Best meal I had in Port Blair”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2010

This is a very basic, outdoor restaurant that is not at all fancy. It is on the strand so it has a decent breeze. I went to several fancier hotel restaurants in the city but this was my best meal by far. The chili Tiger prawns and grilled chicken were both excellent.

“sea foodies heaven”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2010

Here you get fresh fish,a variety of lobsters and crabs to choose from.Select your gravy and they will rustle up a sumtuous meal for you and in good time as well. Located on Abeerdeen jetty,ie Rajiv Gandhi Water sports complex,a great place to have lunch when you come back from Ross Island .It is a even better place to have Dinner as a wide variety of fish and sea food is available once the fishermen come back with their daily cath in the afternoon.A plate of crab masala would cost about Rs 350.(meal for 2/3 persons.) lobsters are a bit costlier.You can go for a variety of whle fish like surmai,bhetki ,red-snapper,gobra...if you want some thing good as well as cheap.
