Amazing seafood and lovely hostess.

My brother and I ate here after it was recommended to us. It was amazing. Very tasty, overlooking the sea, and the staff seemed to genuinely care if we were enjoying ourselves.

Pricey? No. We paid 10 pounds for an amazing seafood platter and a drink each. Yes - you can find cheaper places...but you won't find better quality.

My girlfriend and I had barracuda fish and mackerel with rice and noodles. They both tasted fine as one would expect and the sizes of the portions were reasonable. With the fish came three different sauces, which were very tasty. For dessert we had a Snickers shaker and a mango/banana shaker. The Snickers shaker was fun to try but nothing special and the fruit shaker was good but the mango came from a can. It was a nice meal but after seeing the pictures on TA we had expected a bit more. The restaurent only gets 3/5 because the prises were a bit higher than other places on Koh Phangan.

My boyfriend and I stopped by Fisherman's Restaurant before the Full Moon Party this month at nearly 11pm and of course the kitchen was closed as we hadn't realised how late it was ... the owner, Amanda was so lovely and made a big effort to appease the situation (we really didn't mind - it was our fault!) And tried to find something for us to eat. 2 days later we came back - earlier in the evening this time and were given a lovely wooden table for 2 overlooking sparkling water and fishing boats. Again, treated exceptionally well by all their staff, I enjoyed a cold glass of excellent crisp white wine (hard to find in Thailand!) and a delicious fishpie - must be cooked by a Western chef ? No - surprisingly a very well trained Thai chef ... My mum couldn't have done better (sorry Mum!!) My boyfriend had fish cakes with salad and crispy, fat, proper "fish & chip stylie" french fries ... I couldn't help pinching them off his plate even though mine was more than filling ... esp with a crunchy mixed salad on the side. Thank you Amanda and Lek for a great meal, lovely setting and making us feel so welcome :-)

Dear Zoe J
Thank you so much for your Review. We are all so happy you decided to return and really pleased you enjoyed our Fish Pie.
As our chef is Thai and as we have customers from many nationalities with different versions of western cooking we understand Our Western dishes such as Fish Pie may not please everyone and we try to let all our customers know this before ordering.
We really want to provide good Fresh food daily with good service in a chilled setting. We are serve only fresh food with no MSG.
It pleased us all that you felt welcome and really enjoyed your meal.
King Regards
From us all at Fisherman's Restaurant & Bar
