We ate here last night after seeing that is was rated as number 1 on trip advisor. It has to be said I can see why. Everything about the restaurant was lovely and well thought out. The staff were incredibly helpful and the food was some of the best I have ever had in Thailand. For a relatively small restaurant... More

Wonderful restaurant with delicious food. Have tried both fish dishes and Thai dishes, all very good and flavorful. The drinks are wonderful and large, at a decent price. Love the chill out area outside the restaurant where it's great to sit and relax with a drink or two. We highly recommend this place, we had to visit the restaurant several... More

This place is fantastic! The food is excellent, big portions and fresh produce, the staff are very friendly, welcoming and speak very good English, the location is beautiful and the decor is simple but pleasant. After our delicious meal, we headed to the seating areas down on the beach where we ordered drinks and chilled out for an hour. Honestly... More

Beautiful restaurant, right on the beach, perfect for food or just for a drink. We visited twice, once during the day for a refreshing smoothie and once in the evening for drinks on the beach and a meal in the restaurant. The food is sublime - you can tell they take great pride in the standard and service here, as... More

Went here last week, chilled in the bar area before dining- lovely seating area to relax and some cocktails 100bt until 9pm, not seen cheaper on the island and they were really nice too! Food was all really nice there was a slight mix up with the order due to language difficulties but the manager recovered the situation well. Will... More

One of the best restaurants I've ever been too, we arrived early (definitely need to book) and enjoyed cocktails on the beach, all the fish is caught that morning and they have live crabs swimming outside the entrance. The fish platter is delicious

My boyfriend and I wanted to have a romantic dinner on the beach and chose the Fisherman's Restaurant after reading the positive reviews. My first thought was WOW! Aroma, lights and Music embraced the atmosphere and after a glass of white wine on the beach, we had an amazing dinner. The deep fried shrimp and large seafood platter for two... More

Menu looks great, great ambiance, courteous. But my gf's fried rice was lacking, as was my barracuda. The menu said spicy tomato marinade, but I got no spice. I ended up adding soy sauce to the dish, which I rarely do, just to add flavor. I'd give it another chance despite this experience.
