“Great food, great folks”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

We visited Fisherman's Restaurant 4 times over the course of 4 days in Koh Phangan. The reasons for our repeat visits were simple: The food was super-tasty, a feast for our eyes, taste buds, and tummies, and we simply couldn't get through the menu in one sitting ( I highly recommend the BBQ Barracuda...enough said). While the menu is focused on well-known Thai and Thai seafood dishes, you can tell the chef has been developing these already tasty treats to another level usually found only in 5-star hotel or other expensive restaurants.

The lovely staff were unusually attentive, friendly, knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. Lek and Amanda, the two proprietors, also looked after us, and gave us an insight into their dreams and visions for both the restaurant and their floating bar that sits a short distance from the restaurant on the pier.

The open-plan restaurant design, the lighting, the simple but tasteful decor and layout all add to the relaxed and conversation-supporting atmosphere.

Thanks, we will be back

“Thank you guys”
Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Having visited this restaurant previously, I had no hesitation in returning, this time with my daughter. Once again, a warm welcome from the smiling, courteous staff was much appreciated. The ambiance, service, and quality of food was just so enjoyable. I have visited many Thai restaurants over the years on this beautiful island, and the Fisherman's is indeed one of the best. So, it's a big 'thank you' to Amanda, and her staff, for all of the kindness, care, chat, and, of course superb food we enjoyed at at the 'Fisherman's. Well done, and keep up the good work, it's much appreciated.

“Excellent service and yummy homemade food!!!”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

This was one of the best restaurants we visited during our holiday in Thailand. We loved the wide variety of food that was on offer and that combined both Thai and western dishes together. The lady owner was really warm and friendly. The staff were lovely, especially Nemo who was our waiter for the majority of our visits to the restaurant. The location is perfect beside the sea giving it a nice and relaxing atmosphere. Overall, excellent customer service, great food and a place we would definitely recommend to visit during a stay in koh phangan.

thanks for everything

“Lunch”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

We had lunch in the restaurant 2 days ago and it was very very nice. Staff were excellent and the green curry we had was also delicious. The lady owner was also very kind to order us a cab to a different part of the island. We were new to the island and she made us feel like at home.

Thanks
