We were recommended Fisherman's by a fellow Brit at Koh Samui airport and we WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED. I was with a group of 5 people and although we all eat cod and prawns, none of us are massive on fish. I think Fisherman's Restaurant has converted us all into fish eaters. We had a selection of starters, however the Tom Yum soup was exquisite. I think it was arguably the best Tom Yum soup we had in the whole of Thailand. For mains we had a variety of Barracuda, White Snapper, River Prawns. Every single dish was amazing. The marinades on the fish were outstanding and took away any potency of the fish. Although the bill was quite pricey compared to other restaurants in Thailand, it was certainly worth every penny. Not only was the food exceptional but the service was sublime. I would recommend this to anyone, whether you are travelling as a couple, family or friends. The decor is very impressive, however this is the only slight negative. As the seating is all outside, there are a number of mozzies and flys. Make sure you spray yourself thoroughly before you go there. Other than than...faultless!!!

We were recommended and on arrival they were fully booked but allowed us to wait a few minutes I case on a cancellation or No show!

Glad we waited the food was excellent and the service could not be faulted! The cost was also very good we both had 3 courses and with 3 beers and 2 red wines was around £36.

My husband had mussels and crab and then chocolate brownie whilst I had tempura shrimp, king prawn yellow curry and creme brûlée

Definitely will pay another visit before we leave the island. 5 stars+

I had a meal here with a couple of friends and was so impressed with the whole experience! The restaurant itself has a great atmosphere with an incredible setting. I had the seafood curry and it was the best seafood I have ever had! It wasn't even expensive, so the value for money was exceptional. The staff were very friendly and we had a very nice chat with one of the owners. If you are looking for a good meal on Koh Phangan then I strongly advise giving this place a shot, you won't be disappointed!

Me and my friends spent an amazing evening here. We'd had an awful experience at our guest house (orchard house) and turned up in a terrible mood. The staff and setting relaxed us immediately and we went on to have one of the best nights of our entire trip. The food is beautifully fresh, stunningly flavoured and seasoned perfectly. The restaurant is visually lovely too; beanbags, boats and lanterns pepper the beach. Go!
