We ate here 2 nights when we were on Ko Phangan. Amazing seafood, really great mojitos and my husband loved the oreo milkshakes! You can sit out on the beach at night for drinks in boats or amongst cute little lanterns and and maybe catch a lighting storm over the bay - great place with friendly... read more

The food was just amazing. We came here to eat two nights in a row and we're completely satisfied. The house yellow curry is my recommendation. I had it with crab one night and with king prawns the next. Not thai, but great to eat some proper fat chips (definitely not fries) The setting is also lovely looking out across... More

We chose Fisherman's because of trip advisor and we are happy to say that it deserves its No. 1 slot. What a great place to eat, relax, socialise and enjoy. We were with a fairly large group the first visit and the food was superb and they looked after us perfectly. When our group shrunk we re-visited with four of... More

Lots of choice of seafood dishes. We had the crab and the shrimps and it was amazing. The average cost of a plate is between 250 and 350 baht for seafood. Thai food was around 150. The decor is really nice too. The service was however what we found the most impressive. This was a first for us since we... More

A lovely restaurant in a perfect setting. The food, music, setting and service was all incredible. We went twice in 4 days on the island. I would highly recomend a trip here if you're on the island. Make sure you go in the evening as the atmosphere and lighting is stunning.

We come to KPN a few times a year, and are never disapointed when we pay our regular visit to Fisherman's. Great location, we have full overview when the kids are playing on the beach, amazing food, chill atmosphere and not to mention the one- of- a- kind friendly staff that keeps the place going. I'm always looking forward to... More

We recently stayed on Phangan for 3 nights and ate here 2 out of the 3. It was the best food we have had in our 3 weeks of travels all around thailand, and the setting was so romantic. Very reasonable prices. We had a couple of cocktails, a carafe of decent wine, mussells, prawn tempura, curry and rice and... More

We decided to try this place as it was rated #1 on the island and we were looking for fish & seafood. We ordered the shrimp cakes which were delicious! Dinner we had the clams in Thai style -they were not spicey at all despite us wanting them to be. We also shared the small seafood platter that contained 1... More

I'm a regular visitor to KP and always find the time to eat at Fisherman's. Never am I disappointed - top setting with chill out area to kick back and relax after a belly full of tasty food and cocktails and as always friendly helpful staff.
