Description: This original seafood restaurant in Ban Tai opened more than 6 years ago by a local fishing family. Offering a wide selection of fresh local seafood and traditional Thai home cooking with some signature dishes creating a unique dining experience. Some dishes are Thai style and very spicy or can be as mild as you like, some dishes are fusion and a few western dishes all with no MSG. The restaurant is located on a stunning beachfront next to Ban Tai pier with the option of seating on traditional long tail fishing boats and beach beds for before or after dinner cocktails. This beach side restaurant is relaxed and friendly. Don't miss out on this local treasure. A must while visiting Koh Phangan! Booking advised during busy months and always around full moon and half moon periods and for larger groups at all times. Opening hours kitchen 1pm until 10pm Beach bar late in high season Closed every month 2+ days for staff holiday depending on season check our face book status

“amazing seafood and view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

this place was just the most perfect restaurant we visited while on Koh Phangan, the ocean view only added to the lovely set up inside the restaurant itself, staff were always on hand for anything we need, service was quick and the fish was cooked perfectly everyone heading to koh phangan need to try this place at least once

“Super yummy food in beautiful location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

Must be one of the best restaurants on the island. Really nice location, super staff and amazing food and drinks. Really peaceful and idyllic settings. if you are on the island and what a fancy-ish seafood dinner, go here.

“Fresh food in a unique set up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

I have decided to go to Fisherman's after the good reviews and I was satisfied with my experience.

The restaurant set up is very nice and atmospheric. The possibility of eating in a real fishermen boat add that touch of difference (I would have eaten in one but my husband said it was way too uncomfortable).

We had fish cakes and clams as starters and prawns with curry and fish and chips as mains. All was delicious...a special mention goes to the fact that fresh fish was used both for fish cakes and fish and chips which gives a total new dimension to what we usually eat in the west. The best of all are definitely the clams.

I have to be honest that what is really nice in this restaurant is the service which is excellent. ..at least our waiter was..but all seemed very attentive and efficient.

I definitely recommend it...prices are similar to a restaurant I Europe so on the high side for Phangan.

Book beforehand as it's always full.
