New Lighthouse Restt doesnt inspire confidence at first sight because it is in open shed style , with kitchen at one end . We felt better once seated and finding ourselves amidst a full house and all tables occupied clearly indicative of the popularity of the place. The place is understaffed and it took us some time to catch the attention of a waiter and place our order. The variety of sea food available here is truly amazing . Live crabs are displayed at one end close to the kitchen and one could choose the unfortunate candidate for slaughter . I walked across to another corner to choose the fish , and thankfully the fish had already been taken out of the water for display . We had chicken biryani and grilled Red snapper . The latter dish was simply awesome indeed. Service is slow because each order is prepared afresh and one has to bear that in mind. 1.30 pm in Port Blair is not exactly cool and the sun was beating down rather mercilessly and we did indeed dearly miss air con whist we waited to be served. Maybe some day this place will get enclosed and air conditioned , making dining experience even better . Highly recommended ! Will definitely go again , air con or no air con !!

This restaurant is a must visit place in Port Blair. We ordered Grilled Red Snapper (whole Fish) and it took about 20 minutes for the dish to be served. The taste was awesome and one could feel the freshness. In fact they display the range of seafood and you can select whatever you want. They also have normal Indian food. Custard pudding is also very good.

A great place for readily available sea food. We tried the lobster crab and prawns and it was good.. The crab was too oily.. So plz inform in advance about spices and oil. Alcohol is served in morning and post 4. A slight non friendly staff but the food makes it up for all.

Located close to the cellular Jail, this restaurant serves fresh fish catch that you can pick for your meal. Sea food lovers from across the country make at least one visit to this restaurant, non-air conditioned with an upper deck providing views of the sea. The staff are on their toes serving customers. Very polite and efficient. All the airlines crew come to this restaurant for enjoying a meal while transmitting through Port Blair. We had the red snapper grilled to perfection. Fresh and juicy on a bed of red and fries. Unforgettable taste.
