Had this restaurant recommended to me by another traveler, and absolutely loved it. Was told to call ahead and book a boat, got a reservation no problem, and it was during Full Moon weekend so the island was packed. Our party of 4 had a lovely evening of cocktails and dinner in the large boat, service was great and the owner came over to check on us multiple times to make sure we were enjoying our experience, always a nice touch.

We go here regularly. It is totally up to Western standards, consistently good, if a little expensive by island standards but you get what you pay for.

We were staying at Baan Tai Backpackers directly opposite Fishermans, so ended up eating/ hanging out here almost every night. Loved the way the beach was decorated with lights and bean bags, and eating inside a fishing boat on the sand. Food was excellent, and smoothies were yummy.

My first trip to ko phangan with my parents, we had a birthday meal at the fishermans and It was fantastic! Great service and amazing food. I have eaten out lots on this island and I have to say this is the best place to go. As a chef of 12 years experience I can honestly say I have never tasted food like it the chefs really know what there doing as do all the front of house staff. If your in ko phangan this place is a must. Thank you all at the fishermans for a truly lovely time.
