We had heard good things about fishermans and it didn't disappoint. Beautiful beachside setting and great food - the fish is great and it was some of the best Thai food we had in the island too. Good drinks list and friendly staff with perfect English.

I have read the reviews on tripadvisor and by now know not to expect to much, because I am normally disappointed. This is an exception - the food was just as good or even better as everyone was writing about. We just had a light lunch with shared Tempura fried fish starter and seafood Thai green curry. Really exceptional tastes!... More

Stopped by here after a day at Ban Tai beach. It was around 6pm as they had a spare for us, usually they are full and this was recommended to us. Group of 4, had main meals plus wine and cocktails and bill came to only 850 baht! Sounds expensive for thailand but would pay double that for the quality... More

beautiful location with beach bar, the friendly owners have clearly made an effort to make this a special and stand out dinning experience while the food is very good the overall experience is what makes this restaurant score so highly including the impeccable waiting staff

We were walk-ins around 6pm and they managed to fit us in before an 8pm booking. I'm so glad they did. My fiancée and I shared the seafood platter and it was so delicious and fresh. You get two crabs, a massive king prawn each, lots of clams, BBQ calamari and a whole steamed fish. We could barely finish it!... More

Fabulous experience, in fact one of the best I've ever had. We arrived prior sunset for drinks. We played out on the beach beds and a waiter came to ask if we wanted to eat that night.
