Best restaurant we've seen on Koh Phangan. Make sure you book a table

Amazing seafood, very friendly service, decent prices (by Western standards). All in all highly recommend going here. Make sure you make a reservation - the place fills up easily.

Top to bottom great experience. The staff is nice, accommodating, curtious, attentive and basically just know how service should be done. The food ofcourse matches the service with great Thai cuisine from starters to simply well made curry dishes, definitely check out the curry dishes! Don't miss out on this gem of ko phanghan.

This restaurant is to die for and by far the nicest place to eat in koh phangan. It has a great atmosphere and after your meal you can chill with a cocktail on bean bags on the beach. The staff are super friendly and can't do enough for you. Highly recommend!

This is my favorite restaurant for the amazing crab curry and desserts, refined by casual ambiance (which is hard to find on koh phangan!) and fantastic service. We go back to Koh phangan every year and this is our first and last stop!

Been there with my gf few days ago. Service was very good. Food also. We ordered crabs, shrimp cake and a local grilled fish. Price is above the island's average but totally worth it (still cheap compared to european standards). I would recommend a dinner here to all the couples visiting Phangan.

I came back after one year but this time I wasn't satisfaied like one year ago. The food wasn't very tasty and full of trhai flavours as I remembered and the restaurant is becoming more and more international style and is loosing is thai atmosphere.

While on the island, I spent a TON of time at Fisherman's. The restaurant is right on the beach, so both Lunches and Dinners are amazing. It's the perfect place to sit down and take in how beautiful the island of Koh Phangan is! The staff is awesome, they not only are quick to attention to detail but they treat... More
