I'm not a big fish eater but there is something for everyone here, they get very busy so booking is essential, especially round full moon, bit pricier than other places but you would pay three times as much in England for food this good. Definitely recommend for special occasions, really nice setting.

if you'd like to have properly cleaned and cooked seafood go to fisherman's restaurant. we had the calamari, seafood curry & grilled barracuda, all of which were excellent. The thai style shrimp salad was too watery but had a nice flavour. I think the place is a little bit pricey for this island, which is why i gave 4 stars... More

This restaurant is between Haad Rin and Thong Sala and all the cabbies know it well. This is the best meal we had on Koh Phangan. Make sure you book in advance. It's gets very very busy with us tourists. We booked the day before and got a table just fine though. We arrived early and were offered cocktails on... More

Good idea to make a reservation during the busy period. We did so and came 45 min earlier to have a drink on the cosy seatings on the beach. The experience was great all through the food, drinks, great service, bathroom, environment, sunset and the beach in front of the restaurang. The location is great and very relaxing. Affordable food... More

Of course I ate fish at fisherman's and I have to say it tasted so good and fresh that it seemed as though the fisherman actually just got it out of the water. The service is really good too. They make really good cocktails and the atmosphere is great.
