Amazing restaurant

By far the best restaurant on the island. Good and service was excellent!! Location and setting right on the beach is just stunning. Do yourself a favour and go chill on the bean bags on the beach after your meal. You won't want to leave. We didn't!

Very cozy and romantic restaurant on the island. Quite chic and unbelievable food and friendly staff. Be prepared for mouth watering seafood, candlelit dinners by the ocean and laid back ambiance. This place is a hidden gem in Koh Phangan and of you do not try their chocolate mousse, you are missing out on a very important part of life!... More

We been there several times now and the Fisherman's is already one of my favorite places to eat on Koh Phangan. Great seafood selection, everything we ordered was simply amazing. Maybe don't order the Bloody Marry of you don't know how to prepare one, as you get all the ingredients separate and you have to mix it on your own.... More

My friends and I had a reunion dinner here after not seeing each other for 2 years. The food was superb. The service was good and the atmosphere was great. I really enjoyed the food at this restaurant and would highly recommend it. The price was pricey for Thailand but fair for Western countries.

5 stars all the way! Went here with a group of about 8 friends (You may need to make a reservation, first). Every dish was absolutely delicious, cooked perfectly! The ambiance was lovely and quite peaceful! I recommend this for couples, as well! So many wonderful dishes to try and impeccable service!

The service and food was excellent. I also really liked the home made ginger ale. The total cost was more expensive than other restaurants on the island but great value compared to the UK. We went at 2pm when it opened and had lunch. They put something smoking on the table to keep the flies away which was a nice... More
