The 10 Best Restaurants in Havelock
1. Full Moon Café
Full Moon Café brings everything you’d want in a restaurant together, blending its good food with friendly staff, great design, and a gorgeous ocean view. This Charming restaurant is one of Havelock’s most recommended restaurants. The best part of the place is that all its food is prepared using fresh local ingredients.
Try out their American pancakes or their freshly brewed coffee that stand proof of this. The cozy setting and soothing ambiance make Full Moon Café an escape from the noisy affair of daily life. Although some dishes may be a bit pricey, the place does give you the full value of your money.

Something Different is a beautiful seaside cafe, located very close to the Havelock jetty. With low seating and beach murals on the wall, the interiors here are a fresh change from the several other restaurants that dot Havelock’s beaches. The vibe here is great and there it makes quite the cozy spot for conversation.
Multi-cuisine veg and non-veg dishes are available. With a 100 person capacity, this cafe is perfect for lazy meals and large groups. It really is something different.

3. Fat Martin Café
Interesting name, right? This open-air eatery was named after one of its friendly chefs, Martin. It may be small but is highly recommended mostly because of its mouth-watering food. Situated in the Andaman Bubbles dive shop, the entire café has just three tables, a small kitchen, and a few staff that are always smiling and ready to help.
The food here is perfect for a quick bite and is freshly prepared. The menu is very different from most other restaurants and every dish, may it be the idli available for breakfast or the roll made during lunch is served with a twist. We recommend you try a dessert named ‘Hello to the Queen’ here.

If you ever find yourself wondering why everyone’s talking about the Capital of Nepal in Havelock, its probably just the restaurant. Kathmandu has made a name for itself over the years and has received lots of praise for their pancakes, seafood and paratha rolls.

He landed in Havelock with a friend and set up this place to provide tasty and affordable meals, just like his place in Goa.

10. Fruit chaats and Panipuri near the beaches
We often get asked, what is the local cuisine of Andaman. While dishes made or inspired by the local tribes would come first, the street food would be a close second. And Havelock is a great place to try them.
Fruit Chaats, Panipuri, jhaal muri, chatpati, masala lemonade are few dishes you must try. You will find these stalls on Kalapathar, Radhanagar, and Elephanta beaches ready to serve you refreshments.
