We stayed close to this restaurant during our stay on Koh Phangan, so naturally based on the TripAdvisor review we had to check this place out. We were not at all disappointed! In fact, we came twice during our 4 day stay on the island. We tried a couple of the seafood dishes and all of them were delicious! The... More

It was almost 2 years since our last visit and we couldn't wait to return to The Fisherman's restaurant and as we expected we were not let down. The food seems to get better with every visit and the new restaurant setting is simply perfect. I will recommend this restaurant to anybody visiting Koh Phangan, who appreciates good food in... More

Best food in Thailand by far. Great atmosphere in a restaurant with breathtaking view of the beach. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and only to glad to make recommendations about the different dishes to try. Had our dinner here 3 nights - just couldn't be beat. Great value too -even for 4 almost broke lads from Ireland!!

Both myself and my boyfriend dined at Fisherman's after reading such great reviews on Trip Advisor. Luckily we got in on the last evening before they closed for a staff holiday - glad we didn't miss out! The restaurant did not disappoint! It was a beautiful location, with gorgeous surrounding lights and set a perfect atmosphere. The staff were all... More

We showed up for an early dinner without a reservation and management immediately accommodated us even though they were fully booked for dinner service. So this is the main thing to keep in mind, do book ahead as they are full every night. They rank as the best restaurant in Koh phangan for few reasons: Great food, nice atmosphere, but... More

We tried to book here a few times but they were full. They refused to take any big bookings as they do not like big tables. The biggest group we could book in was 6 guests. The only booking they had was at 9pm in the evening. When we arrived our table was not ready. The manager apologised. We ordered... More
