Neil Island has always been the biggest producer of fresh fruits and vegetables in the Andaman Islands; so when it comes to fresh produce, plenty is available. Thanks to its village-like environment and rustic atmosphere, the concept of eating out in restaurants and cafes hasn’t been able to infiltrate the island. So what do the locals do when they get bored of eating at home? They head to the local bazaar and have a snack at the small stalls and eateries.
Several resorts in Neil Island have in-house restaurants mostly run by the owner’s family. The menu mainly consists of what they know how to make and what travellers have taught them. Also, know, you got to arrive at the restaurant and order before you get hungry. The waiting time is long as the food’s prepared from fresh produce and generally lip-smacking.
The new luxury hotels looming in the island have in-house restaurants that mainly serve Indian and Continental cuisine.
