We had lunch here a few times while on the island with family and/or friends. The staff over there are just wonderful and we have great memories it seems. We sat on the ocean front patio and enjoyed the view with our delicious wine and lunch. Must try!

We were greeted by a female staff member Emily who was such a friendly person. She informed us that they were fully booked... More

You didn’t mention who called, was it someone on your behalf because if there is a specific request for an outside... More

After reading lots of good reviews about this restaurant we (group of 4 girls) were keen to try it but we made the mistake of turning up without a booking and were turned away. So we made a booking for our final night together in Ko Phangnan and we were not disappointed. The service was outstanding, helpful and friendly staff.... More

Fisherman's is an experience from the moment you walk inside. The smells are amazing, and the feeling of the sand beneath your toes adds to the relaxed atmosphere. The lighting is low, and you immediately feel at peace. I have eaten here on several occasions, and the food is always above average, and reasonably priced. I would say the curries... More
